  • Witness the world-famous Victoria Falls
  • Visit Etosha National Park and Botswana’s Okavango Delta


Tour Overview

Namibia: a land of stark contrasting habitats, breath-taking scenery, unique cultures and remarkable biodiversity. Although home to only one avian endemic [Dune Lark] this south west African country surely ranks as one of southern Africa’s most popular and rewarding birding destinations. Our Namibia, Botswana and Victoria Falls birding tour seeks to cover the country comprehensively whilst briefly crossing international borders into neighbouring Botswana and Zambia to maximize chances at connecting with key avian highlights and witness the world-famous Victoria Falls.

Participants will be treated to a whole range of biodiversity thanks to the tangible passion shown by our expert expedition leaders, all whilst maintaining birding as a top priority throughout the exploration of Namibia’s avian-rich hotspots, whether it be from the fringes of Etosha National Park’s gargantuan salt pan or on a boat ride through the papyrus oh so typical of Botswana’s Okavango Delta.

This expedition generally produces a trip list of over 400 different bird species and the accompanying mammal and reptile counts are equally impressive and some of the highest out of all of our African destinations that we visit.

What to Expect

Our Namibia & Botswana birding tour is what some would consider one of the best introductions to birding in Southern Africa, given the easy routes we travel, the friendly people and cultures, breathtaking wildlife encounters, superb accommodation, great photographic opportunities and birding which isn’t at all intense or hard going. In fact, a combination of the scenic sights, smells and sounds of Africa and the incredible biodiversity we will be encountering along the way makes it hard for one not to succumb to a sense of pure, untamed relaxation.

Birding will often commence at first light after the morning’s coffee and tea so as best to maximise the time of day when birds will be most active. Breakfast will either be served back at the lodge, at a local restaurant or as a picnic-type setup by our guide whilst you continue to enjoy the avian spectacle around you. Midday will generally see us finding time for the group to rest during the heat of the day and take a break from what can be moderately high temperatures [+-36 to 38 degrees Celsius] with minimal humidity during November. This is a great opportunity for clients to refresh, download and sort through pictures or prepare their equipment for the afternoon session. Remember, it will be the Southern Hemisphere Summer and being a largely arid desert environment temperatures during the day can get hot whilst the evenings prove to be the opposite and become rather chilly (pack a jumper or jacket to be safe!) Lunch options will be similar to those for breakfast, followed by further time spent in the field. Evenings will be enjoyed relaying stories and highlights from the day over a superb dinner as your guide takes you through the daily bird list and discusses any queries you may have.

Birding in general is easy with the occasional short distances of light walking, whilst transport for the duration of the tour will be conducted in a Toyota Quantum 13 seater vehicle. The vehicle won’t have any sort of open-top, game-viewing conversion, but given the relatively easy birding nature of the country it doesn’t hamper the quality of birding at all. There is minimal to no language barrier if speaking English and the vast majority of both countries use this as their median for conversing with one another.
