Namibia, Botswana, Zambia Birding

Tour Overview
Let’s go Birding in Namibia, Botswana and Zambia! This expert-guided tour offers some of the best birding and general wildlife viewing in all of Africa.

Over the years we have perfected our 14-Day itinerary to include excellent birdwatching opportunities, spectacular parks and reserves, great accommodation, some top attractions, and fantastic chances of seeing the Big Five and other rare and special mammals.

Expect to be amazed at the incredible habitat diversity during this trip, from miombo woodland in Zambia and lush riparian forest in the Caprivi and Botswana to arid desert and sand dune landscapes in central Namibia, not forgetting the spectacular lagoon at Walvis Bay on the Atlantic coast, and much more! This diversity brings with it some fantastic birdwatching, with many of the endemic, special and localised species featuring on every serious birder’s wish list. You can count on seeing several hundred avian species, along with many mammals, other fauna and flora and some superb classic African safari landscapes.
