Where and when to travel

The Okavango offers a number of incredible natural sights, and some of the more incredible species in the area include the Pel’s fishing owl, the Coppery-tailed coucal, the Swamp boubou, and the black coucal, amongst numerous and other notable additions. Observing these species on the calm and tranquil waterways of the Okavango Delta is an unforgettable experience for birding enthusiasts, and the fact that the region remains largely unpopulated, means that the majority of birdlife in the area is relatively unfazed by the human presence, and this allows us to get much closer to the birds for better pictures and viewing opportunities.

But the Okavango is not the only notable birdwatching destination in the country. The Chobe area has healthy population of African fish eagles and wattled cranes, and the Kalahari Desert and the great Makgadigadi pans offer unrivaled viewing opportunities for Martial eagles and Lilac breasted rollers.

The best season for bird viewing is the wet season running November to April, especially in the Delta when water channels are flowing.
