The Outeniquas is a mountain range which dominates the landscape at the junction of the Western Cape and Eastern Cape provinces. The stark variation in altitude and conditions yields a wide diversity of habitats. The IBA is extremely rich in fynbos, forest and arid-zone birds, supporting a host of restricted-range and biome-restricted assemblage species such as Cape Bulbul Pycnonotus capensis, Orange-breasted Sunbird Anthobaphes violacea and Cape Siskin Crithagra totta.
