Birding Tour Uganda: Shelley's Crimsonwing Expedition, RFCG conservation tour 2017

Duration: 8 days

This is a Rafe Finch Conservation Group conservation trip.
Ten percent of the tour costs will be donated to the RFCG.

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.

More about the two Birding Ecotours options linked to the exciting Shelley’s Crimsonwing Expedition:
You can join a birding and primate tour of Uganda from August 1 – 19 before the Shelley’s Crimsonwing Expedition starts, and/or you can join a Namibia, Botswana, Victoria Falls birding and wildlife safari after it. Details of both trips are at Birding Tour Uganda: 14-day Shoebill and Albertine Rift Endemics 2017 and/or Birding Tour Namibia: Namibia, Okavango, and Victoria Falls 2017.
Please note that while the latter trip is usually run later in the year, if we get at least four participants, we will add another departure of this trip from 1 – 18 September 2016.
