20 day Bird Watching Safari
from US $7445 - $19500 per couple
With this bird watching safari we have combined three separate circuits into one elaborate & comprehensive itinerary. However, for those birding fanatics reading this, each can be tailored as a separate itinerary;
Kenya is ranked second as far as habitat diversity is concerned. Tropical rain-forest, coastal forest, montane forest, the scrubs and grasslands to semi arid areas home to 1000+ bird species.
2. Rwanda & Uganda
Uganda: the Mabamba Swamp: Wetland area recently acknowledged and an International conservation area. Famous for the rare Shoebill Stork.
Kibale National Park with a variety of forest birds including the Red Winged Francolin, advice Red Chested Fluftail, African Pita, Joyful greenbul and with over 400 species found here.
Queen Elizabeth National Park Birding, also famous for wildlife in Uganda, hosts over 550 bird species. See more than eleven types of Kingfisher, several falcons,eagles and black bee eater and other.
Bwindi Birding Uganda Safari , the flora and fauna forests of East Africa with 350 bird species. Birds include the Albertine rift Endemics, Rwenzori Batis, Buhoma Ruhinja Black bee eater and the African Green Broadbill.
Murchison Falls national park with over 360 birds and famous for the shoebill, giant kingfisher, bee eaters and other species.
Rwanda: focuses entirely on Africa’s largest contiguous block of montane forest, best accessed at Nyungwe National Park.
Even richer than Uganda's Bwindi in local specialties, here look out for Red-collared Mountain Babbler, Ruwenzori Turaco, Stuhlman’s Double-collared Sunbird, the exquisite Purple-breasted Sunbird, Neumann’s Short-tailed Warbler and Kungwe Apalis, and can catch up with just about any of specialities.You may be lucky to encounter Shelley’s Crimsonwing or Albertine Owlet, two species only a handful of birders have seen before.
In Tanzania enjoy bird paradise over national parks and reserves to the densely wooded slopes of Mount Meru in the shadow of the much larger Mount Kilimanjaro. Wander among the giant baobab trees of Tarangire National Park before visiting two of the world’s most famous wildlife locations— Ngoro-ngoro Crater and the vast Serengeti. Tanzania is a a place of wonder, where mammals big and small can follow unmolested lives and where birds of every hue seem to queue right along the wayside.
