For quite some time Regine and Horst Dietz, the managers of Gästefarm Etendero, have been operating with bird friendly practices on this farm.
Environment friendly farming principles go hand in hand with bird conservation. Through leaving dead tall trees standing to be used by raptors as a perch, through pumping water into the dried out dam nearby the farmhouse to offer drinking water and keeping their dogs under control so that the ground scratching birds can clear the area around the farmyard from ticks are a few aspects that earned Gästefarm Etendero a two penguin-rated Bird & Birder Friendly Award.
So, if you are embarking on a bird watching journey into the Erongo region or passing by, make sure you visit the Bird & Birder Friendly Gästefarm Etendero. You will be overwhelmed by the species’ richness on this farm.
