Teniqua Treetops in Knysna is a bird-watching paradise, accommodation with a major difference!
We looked at building bird-hides before realising that each tree-house is a bird-hide 🙂 Awaken each morning to the sensual dawn chorus. We are visited by over a 100 different varieties of birds. We are blessed with the Knysna Turaco (Knysna Loerie) every day.
Teniqua Treetops is located on 26 hectares of pristine indigenous forest; 3 hectares of fynbos and 6 hectares of open grassland. This encourages a range of birds.
There is a wild-fig tree in the entertainment area that is its own ecosystem – what’s happening when all depends on the ripeness of the fruit. First come the fruit bats. The owls catch the bats. There’s also the Cape White Eyes and Forest Canaries.
My personal favourites, which are all regular visitors, are the brightly-coloured birds.
Greater Double Collared Sunbirds
Recently, there were rare 2 rare sightings of the Narina Trogon and the Long Crested Eagle.
