Heading east out of Namibia’s capitol, Windhoek, the tarred road leads you after about 45 km to the Sonnleiten Farm Residence on your left side. This retirement residence offers big fun for people interested in birdlife. In the garden you can see exciting species such as the Rosy-faced Lovebird, Scarletchested Sunbird and the Grey Go-Away-Bird, the clown in the bird world.
To promote bird conservation, BirdsConTour offers people, organisations and establishments to become registered as Bird & Birder Friendly. After having visited Sonnleiten Farm Residence, it was clear that the establishment meets certain criteria (see article 67 under www.birdscontour.blogspot.com) which led to becoming rewarded with a two penguin-rated Bird & Birder Friendly Award. Native plants (trees) are incorporated into the garden and food as well as water is offered to wild birds, attracting them to the garden.
BirdsConTour would like to thank Sybille & Uwe Rückleben for their conservation efforts on their premises!
