Birding Tour Southern Africa: Owls of Namibia, Botswana, South Africa 2018



Owls of Africa: The southern dozen – Birding Tour Southern Africa

This is a trip in which we concentrate on finding the fine suite of owls inhabiting Africa south of the mighty Zambezi River. Most of these owls can be found in two of Africa’s greatest wildlife havens, the panhandle of the Okavango Delta (in Botswana) and Etosha National Park (in Namibia). While getting to know these owls at both their daytime roosts and while they are hunting at night here in Botswana and Namibia, we are unable to avoid stumbling across hundreds of other bird species in addition to owls, as well as Southern Africa’s big and small mammals. A highlight is looking at the magnificent Pel’s Fishing Owl on islands in the Okavango, and with luck also fishing at night.

During this ‘Birding Tour Southern Africa’ adventure we also sample the highlands of South Africa, where we hope to find the rare African Grass Owl and Cape Eagle-Owl, two elusive species, in areas inhabited by other exciting Drakensberg endemics. This tour provides not only a 90 percent chance of finding all 12 owls of the subcontinent, which are, in addition to those named above, Western Barn Owl, Marsh Owl, Spotted Eagle-Owl, Verreaux’s Eagle-Owl, African Scops Owl, Southern White-faced Owl, African Wood Owl, Pearl-spotted Owlet, and African Barred Owlet, but it also gives the most spectacular introduction to Africa for those who have never visited the wildlife continent. We look forward to welcoming you to this ‘Birding Tour Southern Africa’ experience.

What our clients say

Diane and I participated in an amazing 12 day Western Cape Bird watching tour through Birding Ecotours in the fall of 2011 with Mark Harrington as our driver/guide. Mark was a very pleasant, good humoured, knowledgeable guide whose knowledge of the flora and fauna of the Western Cape area was outstanding. He was able to identify all of the birds we saw very quickly and took the time to make sure that all of our group was able to clearly see and identify each new bird or animal. As well his knowledge of the cultural history of South Africa made the trip an excellent learning experience for both of us. He was able to smooth over any rough patches in the tour and made all of us feel special. We hope that in the future that he can be our guide again.
