Outstanding Experience!

January 14, 2020

Ben loves to entertain tourists on these occasions and we have many memorable times around the camp fires.

His knowledge of the cultural and historical aspects of most areas makes him a very interesting companion and guide. His knowledge of nature which include wildlife, astronomy, birds and reptiles is outstanding and I have spent many hours with Ben in the veld.

Ben is a responsible guide and has a good knowledge of tracking and bush signs. I have accompanied Ben on many birding trips and I am impressed with his knowledge of birds, bird behavior and bird calls.

Ben has opened a new dimension in birding for me.

Since I have started birding with Ben my love for birds has been rekindled and I look forward to the next trip.

Great guided one day bird tour by Ben!

April 15, 2024

We are 3 friends who recently became more interested in birding. Most of our birding until now had been done in the Bushveld area. I contacted Ben to arrange a one day bird tour to orientate us to the Garden Route area in general, and forest and water birds in particular.

Ben curated a fantastic experience on a mix of public and private land which gave us an excellent introduction to birding in the Sedgefield and Wilderness area.

Ben’s technical knowledge is excellent, he is particularly strong on bird calls, and we wouldn’t have seen half the species we did without him.

Bonus is that we received recommendations for other spots in the area to visit which bagged us a Nerina Trogan amongst others!

Highly recommended.

Amazing experience

November 13, 2023

We had a half day birding trip with Ben. His knowledge of local birds , their songs and habits is excellent. He took us to five locations and we saw a breeding pair of peregrine falcons amongst many other birds.

Fully recommend him. Even if you are not visiting his area he has contacts throughout South Africa that he can put you in touch with.

Review of Ben Fouche's bird watching experience

A wonderful morning with Ben Fouche

December 25, 2020

The brochure did not say Ben would be there promptly at 05h00 (in spite of the light rain) to show a wet Night Heron five minutes later! In the next 8 hours we visited various spots and spotted 93 different species – 5 Lifers for me and 5 more that I only saw for the second time! I appreciated Ben’s knowledge of the bird sounds ( we only heard the African Emerald Cuckoo’s “Pretty Georgie”) and him also using the Afrikaans names: “Boskrapper” & “Watertrapper” had me thinking! His use of the Atlas also inspired me to try. A wonderful morning – Thanks Ben!
