On our Tanzania birding and wildlife tour, we often begin birding early in the morning, usually having breakfast before dawn. Days will usually start at first light to catch activity in the morning before the day warms up and activity slows down. We lunch at a local restaurant or take a picnic lunch into the field. We may rest for a mid-day ‘siesta’ on some days. During leisurely dinners we discuss the day’s activities and review the day’s list of sightings, and make plans for the next day. There will be a few optional nocturnal outings, to search for owls and nightjars.
The tour will proceed at a relaxed pace; occasionally, activities will involve some longer walks. In general, we keep to less traveled roads and fairly easy walking trails.
Tanzania is a diverse country, and we visit montane forests, huge grasslands, arid plains, and expansive wetlands. Short heavy rainfalls can happen at any time, and occasionally humidity is an inconvenience.
We stay in mostly good quality accommodations, often in excellent birding localities. Please note that the detailed itinerary below cannot be guaranteed as it is a guide and may be changed due to factors such as availability of accommodation, updated information on the state of accommodation, roads, or birding sites, the discretion of the guides and other factors
There will be innumerably splendid photographic opportunities!
