Sylvia Ledgard - Cape Bird Club

Mariana is an accredited tourist guide, with particular skills in the fields of birds, birding and botanising in the Western Cape.

My association with Mariana is through the Cape Bird Club's links with Tygerberg Bird Club, our "sister club" in the Northern Suburbs of Cape Town. Mariana is currently the Chairman of this club and has carried the position with distinction for several years.


I have no doubt that the energy, commitment and enthusiasm that Mariana brings to her role as Chairman of the Tygerberg Bird Club will be reflected equally in her tour guiding activities.   

Mariana's enthusiasm is infectious.   Her outgoing and friendly disposition, knowledge in her chosen field and attention to detail will assure anyone participating in her tours of a stimulating and memorable experience.

Eco-Information on the Western Cape, South Africa.
Fynbos hosts 8 600 plant species, of which 5 800 are endemic, meaning that they do not occur naturally anywhere else in the world. Many of these species are rare and endangered.

Compare this with the United Kingdom, 3,5 times the size of the Cape Floral Kingdom, hosting only 1 500 plant species of which only 20 are endemic.
