You can idle for hours with your favourite book on the garden patio, and take delight in the flamingos and many other species of birdlife that come  to feed in the sparkling waters at the bottom garden.

Jeffrey’s Bay is situated in the heart of the Eastern Cape and along the famous Garden Route (which officially stretches from Storms River to Mossel Bay). This entire area is known for its vast proliferation of birds and its sheer variety of avian species. Whether or not you are a keen bird watcher, you will no doubt be delighted by the colourful chirpers that soar overhead or perch themselves in the boughs and brushes in and around Jeffrey’s Bay.

One of the most significant advantages that Jeffrey’s Bay has in terms of its birdlife is the great variety of habitats available to them. There is dense forest, low bushveld, open grasslands, unspoiled coastline and dune vegetation in which the many different kinds of birds can live and nest. These are common conditions throughout the Eastern Cape and it is, therefore, not surprising that there are well over 450 different bird species that have been identified here thus far.
