If you decide to venture a bit further the Karoo National Park in Worcester is a good bet. On a good day you could find up to 60 species in the park. I found about 40 species in a 3 hour walk. The most sought after species you will find here is the Southern Tchagra and Fairy Flycatcher. Just remember to be there early. The birds are very active early on, but by 10 :00 you don't see that many birds.
Another good bet is when you drive out of the Spa, take the road to the left. This road becomes a dirt road and after about 5 km meet up with the main tar road to Worcester. The birding along this dirt road is very good. Even without really birding with intent we still managed to see 58 species.
The Goudini Spa Is a wonderful breakaway and you will enjoy the warm spring water.
