A voucher for a half day birdwatching tour for 2 people with FGASA accredited guide, Tim Cockcroft


A born and bred Eastern Cape man, Port Alfred resident Tim Cockcroft has had an enthusiasm and passion for birds since late 1984. Fast forward to today: Tim is best known in local circles for his ability to recognise bird calls and when leading his birding tours, his skills are put to good use. Having grown up in Port Alfred, he knows the area well and can take the client to some beautiful secret birding spots that not everybody would get to see otherwise. In his spare birding time, Tim is an amateur bird sound recordist. Several of his recordings have been contributed to international online bird sound libraries, such as xeno-canto. So, take a look through this site and see what he has to offer. Make your birding in this beautiful part of South Africa an experience to remember.


"Tim thanks so much for an adventure of a lifetime! We were spoiled by all the birds you showed us. This morning exceeded all our expectations!! Your passion and knowledge of birds changed us as birders! The Narina Trogon was a life-long dream!"

"Thanks for the two beautiful days that we could spend with you and the birds, Tim. We are immensely impressed with your knowledge of the birdlife around Port Alfred. Your lovely style of guiding and your knowledge made for a very enjoyable and informative experience!... we will be back for more!"
