Kapama has more than 250 bird species recorded. Migratory birds are present from November to April. The main focus in Kapama is on wildlife viewing, so if bird watching is important to you, it would make sense to make prior arrangements for private game drives and bush walks. Night drives are great for seeing some nocturnal species not easily encountered in the national parks.
