Birding Tour Uganda: Shelley's Crimsonwing Expedition 2018



On this tour we would like to try and get photos and sound recordings of Shelley’s Crimsonwing, one of Africa’s rarest finches. We plan to be as close as possible to the sites we feel are best for the species. We would like to try and get publicity for this rare species (which will hopefully help its conservation). The trip will naturally also look at other bird and finch species in the area, but our main focus will be to try to find and see the vulnerable and elusive Shelley’s Crimsonwing.

What our clients say

Dear Chris, After a great and exciting tour with John Tinkler, I would like to thank you for appointing him as my guide for the trip. Even though John (and others) said that I was unlucky with the weather, I didn’t mind at all. We saw >190 species, granting me most of my ‘special’ targets. John managed to give me spectacular views of many species from his special vehicle resulting in id and better shots of about 50% of the birds found. I have started to sort out my >1000 pictures and will post a few of what I rate as iconic SA birds as a preview. Next to the birds, John gave me a very special but cold experience in the Tankwa Karoo. It was a trip I’ll never forget and I definitely recommend John as a superb guide.
