Tour Operator – Birding Africa

More about the tour operator:

Birding Africa is a bird tour operator specialising in leading professionally guided bird tours for groups and private individuals to countries throughout Africa and Madagascar. We customise tours for both world listers and more relaxed holiday birders. We combine interests in mammals, butterflies, dragonflies, botany and other natural history aspects and will guide you to Africa’s and Madagascar’s most diverse birding destinations. Our guides’ knowledge of African birds and birding areas is our greatest strength and together we have rediscovered species, shared exciting observations with the birding community and had a fun time exploring our home continent. We’ve even written two acclaimed guidebooks on where to find Southern Africa’s and Madagascar’s best birds.

In addition, we offer guided tours and self-drive birding holidays in Southern Africa, and guided birding day trips from most of the main city centres. We are based in Cape Town and therefore focus on guided day trips on the Cape Peninsula, Kogelberg tour and West Coast National Park and 2-day loops to the Tanqua Karoo and Overberg.

Birding is more than our passion, it’s our lifestyle, and we are dedicated to making professional, best-value trips filled with endemic species and unique wildlife experiences. Since 1997, we’ve run bird-watching tours in South Africa and further into Africa for individual birders, small birding groups and top international tour companies. We’ve run Conservation Tours in association with the African Bird Club and work with and consult for a number of other top international tour companies and the BBC Natural History Unit.

Choose Birding Africa: 2500 bird species, 20 endemic bird families, the world record for bird species seen in a day and the most exhilarating primate and mammal watching on earth. We are bird guide authors and conservationists living in Africa, drawn together by a common passion: sharing our enthusiasm for Africa’s birds with the world.

Operating Areas:

The Cape Peninsula, Hottentots Holland and West Coast National Park and 2-day loops to the Tanqua Karoo and Overberg.
