Birds of Africa
Immerse yourself in the African wilderness separated only by canvas like an explorer of old!! Possibly the ultimate way to experience Africa. Get under the skin of the world’s most exciting continent through in-depth encounters with the local communities as you go about your birding excursion.
Birding is more than our passion, it’s our lifestyle, and we are dedicated to making professional, best value trips filled with endemic species and unique wildlife experiences. Our guides’ knowledge of African birds and birding areas is our greatest strength and together we have rediscovered species, shared exciting observations with the birding community and had a fun time exploring our home continent.
We customize birding tours for both world listers and more relaxed holiday birders. We combine interests in mammals, butterflies, dragonflies, botany and other natural history aspects and will guide you to Africa’s most diverse birding destinations.
And if Uganda will have primate enthusiasts wandering around with imbecile grins, it will have birdwatchers doing cartwheels. Uganda is by far the smallest of the four African countries in which more than 1,000 bird species have been recorded, and it is particularly rich in Western rainforest specialists and the only place in Africa to sight the rare ‘Shoebill’ – in practical terms, undoubtedly the finest bird watching destination in Africa.
A green, hilly and elevated country with many lakes and mountains, Uganda‘s appeal lies in its simplicity. Infrastructure is limited but growing and there is now a good range of safari accommodation and city-based hotels. Ideal for seasoned safari-goers, bird watchers and wildlife enthusiasts, Uganda’s star is on the rise – combine it with Kenya or Tanzania for a holistic East African Wildlife safari experience. Other birding destinations include; Tanzania, Rwanda, Ethiopia, South Africa, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Namibia & Botswana.
