Because it's our home we are pretty biased about birding in Botswana and although there are no endemic bird species it is still one of the most amazing birding holiday destinations. Over 37% of Botswana is protected wilderness, an enormous expanse of pristine habitat which has allowed nature to thrive without encroachment. Because of our tiny human population, only 1.6 million people in a country the size of France (or Texas), we don't have the human pressure on natural resources that plagues a number of Africa countries. Birding in Botswana also combines an incredible wildlife experience with the captivating birding. In parks such as Moremi and Chobe our birding is punctuated by regular sightings of elephant, buffalo, lion, leopard and a number of large herbivores.
Livingstone Birding Trail
The Livingstone Birding Trail is our most popular birding safari and there is good reason for that. This bird watching adventure starts in Maun, Botswana - the gateway to the Okavango Delta. We go on to visit Lake Ngami, the south-western most 'lake' of the Okavango before heading north up to the Panhandle of the Okavango. The tour also takes in Namibia's Caprivi Strip, Victoria Falls and Choma in Zambia before heading back into Botswana where we visit Chobe National Park, Makgadikgadi Pans National Park and Moremi Game Reserve.Guide: Grant Reed
