Southern & East Africa is rich in avifauna. The Okavango Delta hides a host of swamp dwelling waterbirds including the beautiful Pels Fishing Owl. The enormous Shoebill Stork can be found in Uganda while the coastal forests of South Africa’s Zululand region have one of Africa’s highest numbers of diverse species.
What to expect
On safari, most lodges offer game drives to seek out the big game. There are now birding-friendly lodges where equal emphasis is placed on birdwatching. Early morning walks along the Rift Valley lakes to see flamingoes or boat trips in the Okavango Delta to heroneries where egrets, stalks and pelicans come to breed.
