Birding Tour Botswana: Northern Botswana Birding Safari 2018



The Okavango Delta and Greater Chobe River areas of Northern Botswana offer some of the best birding in Southern Africa. Join us for an eight-night luxury ‘Birding Tour Botswana’ safari with no more than eight people and an expert local guide, as we look to find the local birding specials. Besides the incredible birding diversity of the area it also offers one of the best game viewing experiences in Africa.

We will divide our time between three luxurious lodges and enjoy the stunning aerial views as we fly between the lodges. We will start off with three nights at Camp Moremi, situated in the heart of the Okavango Delta at the northern end of the famous Moremi Game Reserve. From here we will fly north and spend three nights at Chobe Savanna Lodge, situated on the Namibian side of the Chobe River and perfect for exploring the Chobe River and Impalila Island. Our last two nights on Birding Tour Botswana will be at the luxurious five-star Chobe Game Lodge, the only lodge situated within Chobe National Park. We will enjoy the birding and game viewing on a combination of open vehicle game drives, boat cruises, and guided walks.

Some of the birds we will be looking for on Birding Tour Botswana include Pel’s Fishing Owl, White-backed Night Heron, African Finfoot, Western Banded Snake Eagle, Rock Pratincole, Hartlaub’s Babbler, Luapula and Chirping Cisticolas, Schalow’s Turaco, Brown Firefinch, Coppery-tailed and White-browed Coucals, African Skimmer, Swamp Boubou, Copper Sunbird, Holub’s Golden and Southern Brown-throated Weavers, Greater Swamp Warbler, Slaty Egret, and African Pygmy Goose.

What our clients say

Hi Chris, Just a quick note today to let you know that mom (Eleanor) and I had a fantastic day with Dylan. First of all it was a great comfort to meet someone at the airport from the area who knows how to go about things. Dylan provided us with a splendid introduction day to the common bird families and antelope (plus a mongoose) at Rietvlie which was exactly what we needed after being cooped up on a plane for so long! He also capably described things about each family and then the species we were seeing. What surprised me was how knowledgeable he is about other species around the world which makes it easy for him to relate to our knowledge base. We had a splendid day talking about all sorts of things. You guys are doing everything right -Bravo! Your website came up first in a Google search and it’s very inviting which encourages an inquiry. Chris, you got back to me right away, and Dylan followed up with answers and then read perfectly what we needed. Thank you so much! I will most definitely recommend you to anyone coming to this part of Africa. Keep up the good work! Dylan, thank you! I look forward to coming back some day. Kim Hartquist
