Herping Cape Town
From the 25th to the 29th of August 2018, myself and Luke Kemp herped in Cape Town, and it’s surrounds. We went towards the end of winter because unlike most trips, we were after the endemic frogs that call the Cape their home, and they love the cold, wet weather that the winter months have to offer. We ventured far and wide, and our travels saw us herping Silvermine, Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, Koeberg and Kogelberg Nature Reserve, to name a few.
We also met up with several amateur and professional herpers (Bryan Maritz, Theo Busschau, Andries Cilliers, Deon Oosthuizen and Willem van Zyl… to name a few). All in all, the trip was a blast and saw us finding lots of lifers in only a short few days.
