Welcome to Birdwatching in Namibia


Birdwatching in Namibia

SAFARIWISE Birdwatching in Namibia birding-tours is home to well over 650 bird species, making it a rich birding region. The parts of Namibia with fewer birds are certainly no waste to birders. Indeed, it is in these drier regions where the many of Namibia’s specials are found. These include, the endemic Dune Lark and numerous other near endemics and other dry region specials. SAFARIWISE Birdwatching in Namibia has a diverse and very interesting range of habitats. The landscape is, after all, the countries biggest tourism draw card.

In the “Caprivi” region various types of woodland and even patches of riverine forest contrast dramatically the dry Namibian Desert. Between the extremes there are various types of dry woodland and thorn veld. (Acacia thicket Savannas,) and of course, a good chunk of the Kalahari. This website offers you a wealth of information. We provide a full, printable birdlist of Namibia and lots of information about the specials. We provide information on rare bird sightings, specials, and on organizations working with birds in this country.

All this information is provided by SafariWise, the top home grown Namibia bird tour operator.
