Africa’s 2300 Unique Bird Species

Africa has a rich diversity of birds, but certain African countries are particularly known for their endemic species. The variety of habitat types, geography and climate on the continent create exciting birding possibilities.

Unique Bird Diversity in Every Country

In South Africa it is relatively easy to travel from one region to the next to view a variety of birds, with the coastline, fynbos, savannah and grasslands all hosting different species. The largest flightless bird, the ostrich is found here. Botswana is renowned for the endemic slaty Eegret and Pel’s fishing owl, and Zimbabwe plays host to migrant colonies of the colourful carmine bee-eaters in summer. Uganda is becoming known as one of the best birding destinations in Africa, with more than 10% of the world’s birds residing here.

Exceptional African Bird Guides

A birding safari needs the expert guidance of a local, experienced bird guide who knows their country and birding regions well. Your guide can recommend the areas to visit and also advise you on which species can be found where. A bird guide is a fantastic companion to have on safari, it is unbelievable what these experts can show you.
