Pirang - Faraba bush track


These places can be reached from the coastal hotels or Kotu Bridge within 40 minutes. Pirang fish or shrimp farm is popularly known as a good site for the crowned cranes, quail-finches, pipits and larks, marsh harriers, curlew sandpipers, yellow-billed storks, African spoon bills, and others.

Having visited the area in the early morning till 10:00 am, we then proceed to Faraba Bush Track, which is about two kilometres from Pirang. It is a woodland and open grass land with little bushes and farmlands, and it gives you a good number of raptors like Wahlberg's eagle, grasshopper buzzard, white-backed vultures, dark chanting goshawks, singing cisticolas, bush petronia, Vieillot's barbet, and many other passerine visitors.

This excursion takes half a day, including an organized packed lunch. You may also wish to combine Pirang and Faraba Bush Track with Kuloro Bonto for a whole day of birding. You will then be able to encounter an even larger number of species of birds in the area.
