Verreau’s Eagle, Aquilla verreauxxi

Tswapong Hills

The Tswapong Hills are mainly sandstone. There are gorges with precipitous cliffs and seasonal streams, and exposed rock faces around the edge of  the hills and along some watercourses. The Cape Griffon Vulture currently breeds at three sites within the hills. Direct persecution , human disturbance and predation by Verreau’s Eagle Aquilla verreauxxi are some of the threats responsible for the observed low breeding success of Cape Vultures on these hills.
