From the flamingo-filled lagoon at the Atlantic coast, to the red dunes of the Namib desert, to the flat expanse of the massive Etosha pan and the rugged escarpment mountains, to the raging Kunene river in the north, Namibia really has it all covered when it comes to top birding habitats.
The country might only have one endemic (the desert-loving Dune Lark), but with another 17 near-endemics and many special southern African species, combined with great tourism infrastructure, friendly people and a safe environment, this is a birding trip that is difficult to beat. You can count on seeing several hundred avian species, along with many mammals, other fascinating fauna and flora, excellent photographic opportunities and some superb classic African safari landscapes.
We have perfected this 13 day tour over the years to provide both the amateur and serious birder with the perfect chance to see all of Namibia’s top avian celebrities. Let’s go birding!
