Birding safaris in Africa | Africa birding tours and holidays/ Bird watching in Africa

Africa is a fantastic continent for a bird watching holiday, as the range of environments make for a hugely diverse bird population. The geographical range is vast, with montane forests, wetlands, marshes, deserts and coastlines on both the Atlantic and Indian Oceans. With a range of African and country-specific endemics, as well as migrant birds which visit to breed and ‘summer’ in the southern hemisphere, Birding safaris in Africa | Africa birding tours and holidays in Africa is packed full of variety.

Birding Safaris in Africa | Africa Birding Tours and HolidaysBird Watching African Safaris are a favorite past time of those who choose to visit African countries like Kenya, Uganda, Botswana, Namibia Zambia, South Africa, Egypt and Tanzania collectively. Bird Watching is a science, a sport and an art but above all, it is one of the highly rated leisure travel activity. The mere diversity of avifauna over these countries guarantees the best ornithological tours on the continent. Africa has become a hub for both professional and armature birders looking for a place to challenge their birding skills and this has seen an increase in bird-watchers from all over the world converging here to identify the various species.

Birding safaris in Africa | Africa birding tours and holidays/ Bird watching safari

Guided Bird watching tours are everything a true bird lover’s heart desires. Some lodges and camps offer guided ornithological safaris around the camp site or in reserves and national parks. Bird watching safaris range from just a few hours long excursions up to a week long journey. Our birdwatchers safaris take you to forests, woodlands, wetlands, lakes, swamps, river banks and other habitats where avi-fauna thrive. We know when the migrators characteristically arrive based on historic information and also from weekly to monthly reports from safari accommodations and our guides, as well as when specific behaviors occur, such as mating and nesting, specific to varied wildernesses.

Africa is recognized around the world for its birds as noted by the many Important Bird Areas on the continent with accessible and specialty birding countries being Zambia, South Africa, Uganda, Botswana, Tanzania and Kenya with upcoming countries vying for recognition like Rwanda and Malawi. Our ornithological guides skillfully locate them on their preferred resident ecology and also identify the species by sound and sight.

Bird watching in Botswana

Much of northern Botswana consists of vast tracts of untouched wilderness with plenty of wildlife. Observe also that it encompasses two extremes of environment: the arid Kalahari and the verdant, watery Okavango – and you’ll understand why birdwatching in Botswana can be as good as it gets!

Birdwatching in Kenya/ Birding safari holidays in Kenya

Kenya is a prime destination for a birdwatching holiday at any time of year. Tremendous geographical range gives Kenya a variety of climates and landscapes, hence the second highest number of species in Africa. Kenya holds the world-record ‘bird watch’ – with 342 species seen in 24 hours!

Kenya is one of only 15 countries globally where more than 1,000 bird species have been recorded, and it lies third on the African avian diversity list after DR Congo and Tanzania. This list includes the world’s two largest birds (common and Somali ostrich, now regarded as separate species) and its bulkiest flying creature (Kori bustard), along with a wealth of raptors and a dazzling array of colorful bee-eaters, turacos, parrots, rollers and passerines. Birdwatching is rewarding everywhere in Kenya. For dedicated birdwatchers, a well-planned two-week itinerary is likely to result in a trip list of 350–400 species, a figure that compares favorably with anywhere in the world.

The open Savannah of southern Kenyan reserves such as Amboseli and the Masai Mara provides an excellent introduction to East Africa’s commoner birds, with the likes of superb starling, purple grenadier, lilac-breasted roller and African grey horn bill all conspicuous. The Rift Valley lakes are also superb: Nakuru and Bogoria are rightly famed for their mind-boggling flamingo aggregations, but the less celebrated Naivasha and Baringo are arguably even better for general birding.

For regular Africa safari goers, a region of special interest is the arid north, where Samburu-Buffalo Springs- Shaba hosts a high quotient of dry-country species whose range is otherwise restricted to less accessible parts of Ethiopia and Somalia.

Kenya Birding Safaris:- There are over 500 species of birds along with spectacular landscapes and wildlife safari viewing infamous parks like the Masai Mara, Lake Nakuru, Laikipia and Amboseli to name a few. The collections of birds in places like Hell’s Gate, Buffalo Springs and Kakamega Forest get you a little bit off the beaten track. Other places worth a visit, especially after the rains, are Mt Kenya, Samburu and Shaba, North Kinangop grassland, Lake Baringo, Aberdare National Park and Tsavo National Parks East and West.

Birdwatching in Malawi

Malawi has a number of species which are rare in the rest of Southern Africa, and birdwatching in Malawi is probably at its best in the country’s water and forest habitats. Malawi’s birding highlights include near endemics such as the Malawi batis, east coast akalat and white-winged apalis.

Birdwatching in Mozambique

Mozambique stretches over 2000km from north to south. It is a lush and varied country, and birding in Mozambique is particularly good along its Indian Ocean coastline. Migrant coastal waders are found in the south, whilst the ornithological records of the bays and islands of the north are still incomplete.

Birdwatching in Namibia

The best time for bird watching in Namibia is during the rains – typically between around November and April. Then many migrants visit, adding to the native species found inland; food is plentiful and many species sport colorful breeding plumage. Meanwhile Namibia’s rich, cold ocean attracts large permanent populations of coastal birds.

Birdwatching in Rwanda

Birdwatching in Rwanda is somewhat overlooked in favor of gorilla-trekking trips. However, bird life in Rwanda is excellent, giving visitors the chance to see some of the Albertine Rift endemic bird species. There are over 600 species in Rwanda, which is amazing for such a small country and makes for great birding.

Birdwatching in Seychelles

The Seychelles is a disparate group of islands – some granitic; some coral line – scattered around the equatorial Indian Ocean, over a range of a thousand of kilometers or so. Come birdwatching in the Seychelles to see a handful of rare endemics that evolved here, plus some huge colonies of ocean-going birds.

Birdwatching in South Africa

South Africa has the highest number of endemic bird species in mainland Africa. Birding in the Cape is particularly good due to the sheer variety of flora found in the Cape Floristic Region. Furthermore, as many South Africans are keen birdwatchers, the resources about birds and information available are usually excellent.

Birdwatching in Tanzania

With a range of endemic bird species, Tanzania is a great location for a birdwatching holiday. A tremendous amount of ornithological research has been carried out here in the past twenty years, which has hugely increased the information and resources for bird watching in Tanzania. Come for great endemics, near-endemics and specialty birds.

Birdwatching in Zambia

Birdwatching in Zambia will reveal a mix of south, east and even central African birds. Bird life is richest during the ’emerald’ wet season (Nov-March) when foliage is dense and insects are thriving; this is also when palearctic and intra-African migrants visit. There is limited accessibility to some areas during this time, but some amazing opportunities for keen birders.

Birdwatching in Zimbabwe

Whilst Zimbabwe doesn’t have any endemics, it’s still great for bird watching. A Zimbabwe holiday which focuses on birdwatching would be best during the rains (Oct – March) – as then food is plentiful, migrants are around and many species are in breeding plumage. Specialties include the rare Angola pitta (or ‘African Pitta’) and the Taita Falcon.

Birdwatching in Uganda

Uganda and Congo collectively have over 1300 bird species. With Uganda having 10 national parks, Congo over 5 and Rwanda having 3, there are many birding safari destinations in the region. Uganda for instance has over 1000 bird species, Rwanda has over 500 bird species in Akagera national park alone and Congo has many birds too in the Congo basin. Uganda is said to have more birds than America and Europe combined.

A Uganda birding safari, Rwanda birding safari or Congo birding safari cannot be disappointing since there are many birds to spot some of which are almost extinct. some of the birds to look out for in Uganda include the shoebill, Green-breasted Pitta,African Green Broadbill, Great Blue Turaco, Shelley’s Crimsonwing, Standard-winged Nightjar, Short-tailed Warbler, Doherty’s Bushshrike, Bar-tailed Trogon, Black-breasted Barbet etc some of these are also found in Rwanda. click the links

Seeing more diversity in bird species is all about changing habitat. In general, for birders we recommend, it’s better to spend longer in each park to avoid missing birds and animals and we offer activities in the best light so you get outstanding sightings.
