Handpicked by a Botswana Local Expert, we bring you our guide to 'Best places for Birding in Botswana'.

Birding in Botswana is a bird enthusiast's dream come true. With its diverse habitats ranging from the Okavango Delta to the Chobe National Park, this country offers some of the best birdwatching opportunities in Africa.

The Okavango Delta is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is known for its incredible bird diversity. Here, you can find species such as the African Fish Eagle, Malachite Kingfisher, and the African Jacana. The best way to experience birdwatching in the Delta is by taking a traditional mokoro canoe ride through the winding channels.

Chobe National Park is another fantastic destination for birding in Botswana. This park is home to over 450 bird species, including the majestic African Fish Eagle, the Lilac-breasted Roller, and the vibrant Carmine Bee-eater. Birdwatching safaris in Chobe offer the chance to see these beautiful creatures in their natural habitat.

The Tuli Block is a lesser-known but equally rewarding birding destination in Botswana. This area is characterized by sandstone formations, riverine forests, and grasslands, providing a unique habitat for a variety of bird species. Birdwatchers can spot species such as the White-headed Lapwing, Southern Ground-Hornbill, and the Kori Bustard.

Overall, Botswana is a paradise for birding enthusiasts, offering a wide range of habitats and species to discover. Whether you are a seasoned birder or a novice, the country's diverse landscapes provide the perfect setting for an unforgettable birdwatching experience.
