Photo and Birding Tour Namibia and Botswana: 13-day Adventure 2019



This is a photographic birding tour that gives you time in some of Africa’s greatest (no exaggeration!) wildlife havens.

We begin our Photo and Birding Tour Namibia and Botswana in Namibia with three days in the rugged Erongo Mountains, where, at the magical lodge we use, some localized and striking birds can be seen and photographed, truly-up close and personal, among the amazing rock formations.

The middle part of the tour finds us in one of the continent’s finest game parks, Etosha. Here Lions and other big cats, African Elephants, rhino, Giraffe, and a plethora of other big and small mammals roam freely among some spectacular birds, such as Crimson-breasted Shrike, Secretarybird, various owls (some of them at their daytime roosts), and all the others. Floodlit waterholes at the park’s lodges provide awesome and rather easy photographic opportunities.

Finally, we bird the panhandle of the Okavango Delta in Botswana – this inland delta is of course world-famous and needs no introduction.

All in all, this 12-days tour gives an absolutely dream African experience, and it allows time for photography.

What our clients say

My brother John and I joined Chris on a tour of KwaZulu-Natal. As scientists, we were difficult customers, constantly being distracted by plants and rocks instead of birds. Chris tolerated these diversions with unflappable grace. And when our attentions were finally engaged fully in the bird watching we could not have asked for a better guide who knew the calls, where to look for tricky sightings, and had all the necessary local contacts to help us find the truly strange and wonderful. My favorite example of the “strange and wonderful” category was the African Broadbill which was displaying, but in the midst of impenetrable vegetation. Despite this, Chris and the guide managed to get us amazing views in the spotting scope. It was my most memorable bird of the trip. He accompanied us just across the border into Swaziland, past guards with guns (because we wanted to say we’d been there), and to a truly dodgy neighborhood in Durban to look at a rock outcrop, and never once complained – at least not out loud. We’ve been on several other international birding trips, and Chris is still our standard of comparison to all our other guides. And he’s still number one. We will be doing a pelagic trip off South Africa in the not too distant future, and will plan it so Chris can lead us there.
