About

Tanzania boasts a bird list of 1,038 species, the third biggest in Africa. Eight of the ten families endemic to mainland Africa are present in Tanzania. Raptors, plovers, parrots, turacos, bee-eaters, barbets, starlings, weavers, pipits and sunbirds are well represented.

Led by well experienced guides specialized in birdlife, a bird safari will visit some of the most interesting areas in Northern Tanzania focusing on different habitats and ecosystems. Generally, you will be taken to remote areas in search of that elusive endemic bird while simultaneously enabling you to experience the most diverse bird species you will find anywhere in Africa.

Bird safaris are for keen naturalists. Imagine the sense of excitement as you walk in the acacia woodlands and plains of Sinya with a pair of binoculars around your neck ready to catch a glimpse of a rarely sited bird. Arusha National Park, Ngorongoro Conservation Area, the baobab country in Tarangire, the Rift Valley escarpment and the ground water forest at Lake Manyara offer some of the most exciting bird watching opportunities in Tanzania.

THE ACTIVITIES SUGGESTED ARE DESIGNED TO PROVIDE INFORMATION AND INSPIRATION FOR YOUR SAFARI ADVENTURE. LET THE EXPERTS AT SAFARIHQ ASSIST YOU IN DESIGNING A CUSTOMIZED INTINERARY AND LET THE ADVENTURE BEGIN.
