Bird Watching in Tanzania is A Birder's Paradise

Tanzania is a birdwatcher's paradise, with over 1,000 species of birds found within its borders.

Here's everything you need to know about bird watching in Tanzania:

  • Best Time to Go: The best time for bird watching in Tanzania is during the wet season (November to April), when migratory birds are present and resident birds are breeding. However, birding can be done all year round, and each season offers its own unique birding experiences.
  • Top Birding Destinations: Tanzania is home to several top birding destinations, including the Serengeti, Lake Victoria, Saadani National Park, Usambara Mountains, Udzungwa Mountains and Nyerere National Park. Each of these parks offers a different set of bird species, habitats, and experiences.
  • Bird Species to Look Out For: Tanzania is home to many endemic and sought-after bird species, including the Shoebill, African Grey Parrot, Yellow-throated Sandgrouse, and Fischer's Lovebird. Other bird species to look out for include the African Fish Eagle, Secretary Bird, and Lilac-breasted Roller.
  • Birding Guides: Our professional birding guides will help you identify bird species, find specific species, and provide valuable insight into the local birdlife and habitat.
  • Accommodation: All our lodges and tented camps in Tanzania offer bird watching as an activity, and are located in prime birding areas.
  • Birding Tours: Tent With a View offers specialized bird watching tours in Tanzania. These tours typically last for several days and include visits to multiple birding destinations within the country.

Tanzania offers incredible bird watching opportunities for both novice and experienced birders.

With a vast array of bird species, diverse habitats, and knowledgeable guides, Tanzania is a must-visit destination for any birder looking for an unforgettable experience.
