The golf course is well worth a visit for extra species such as Splendid Sunbird, Blue-eared Glossy Starlings, and roosting White-faced Scops Owl. We didn't have time to try for the latter, but the general rule is either to go with your regular guide, or use one of the "guides" next to the entrance of the Fajara Golf Clubhouse. I'm not sure how good they are, but the Owls are probably only possible early in the morning and in the evening. When working the golf course itself, access should be free, although someone might ask for money which it is not actually necessary to pay.  The only tip is to keep off the browns (ie greens). The hotel end entrance for a walk is just beyond the car park used by the green taxis.

On our last morning we also walked along part of Atlantic Road, which is found by continuing past the Golf Course. Despite the noisy traffic going by, we had good views of Swallow-tailed Bee-eater, Bearded Barbet, and Beautiful Sunbird.
