Bird watching in Botswana

Botswana is not only big safari  wildlife country but a birding heaven. Between September and March, when the Delta is filled with water, you should be capable of training the lenses of your binoculars on a great number of Botswana safaris‘ 550 species including the Delta’s renowned African skimmers, the scarce wattled crane, slaty egrets, African jacanas, bee-eaters, lilac-breasted rollers, pygmy geese and the shy Pel’s fishing owl. You can are able to see many bird species in the dry season when it’s regularly easier to see them near the few left over water sources.

Botswana Safari for Birdwatching.
A great number of Botswana’s birding is found in the north of the country near the Okavango Delta, the Chobe Riverfront, the Nata Bird haven and the Limpopo River. On the other hand, another top spot is the Makgadikgadi and Nxai Pans National Parks which are covered in a sea of pink flamingos, and other migratory birds, at certain times of the year.

Certainly, the birdlife in Botswana is below threat from overgrazing, urban sprawl and insecticides which are used to undertake the scourge of tsetse flies that at times plague the delta.
