One of the richest birding countries
South Africa is one of the world’s richest birding countries, mainly because of its diversity of habitats. Unique among these is the Drakensberg. It is home to over 500 species of birds. A high proportion are endemic – found only in South Africa – and many of these to an even smaller area, with the Drakensberg as its focus. The reason is that this mountain range forms an isolated island of high ground towering above the rest of the country. It is a refuge for cold-loving species, and isolation in itself is a necessary condition for the evolution of new species.
