Our Namibia, Botswana and Zambia Birding Tour is one of our personal favourites! It’s a birders’ paradise with birding opportunities that take your breath away. We’ve put together a gallery of only but a few of the wonderful birds you can find here.
There are very few birds that bring more excitement when spotted by a birder for the first time than the Pel’s Fishing Owl.
Anticipation fills the air as we quietly approach a possible roosting spot. Slowly….we are trying our best not to step on any dry leaves or twigs that might alarm the birds.
They are a beautiful ginger-colour with a streaked or spotted breast. These owls are large, between 60 and 64cm tall, weighing around 2.4kg. And their striking, huge black eyes stare down at you with a look of annoyance when you have found them at their day-time roost.
The Pel’s Fishing Owl is always a highlight and big attraction on our Nature Travel Birding tours in the Caprivi and Botswana. Read more about our Namibia, Botswana & Zambia Birding Tour, we’d love for you to join us on the next one.
This unmistakable, unique, long-legged, mostly ground-dwelling raptor with possibly the coolest scientific name (Sagittarius serpentarius, meaning “of snakes) was announced recently as Birdlife South Africa’s Bird of the Year for 2019.
It is quite a special sight to see one of these uncommon birds purposefully striding in the open grassland savannas of Africa, overpowering and eating anything from insects, lizards, small mammals, birds and of course snakes. Interestingly, despite its fearsome snake-killing reputation, snakes actually don’t make up a large proportion of the Secretarybird’s diet.
Check out this pair of stunning Secretarybirds recently seen by one of our guides and his clients while on a South African birding tour.
To experience once-in-a-lifetime sightings like these, join us on our expert-guided birding tours. One of our best trips on which to see the Secretarybird is the Best of the East birding tour in South Africa.
