Guidelines to Bird Watching Safari in Tanzania

Africa’s Best Authentic Tailor-Made Safaris

The wild expanses of Tanzania offer the ultimate paradise for birding enthusiasts.

While there are plenty of birdwatching opportunities in Tanzania, you will get a wonderful experience being guided by professionals.

The huge list of bird species to be found here make bird-watching safaris in Tanzania the most sought-after activity among bird lovers.

Tanzania is a well-known safari destination for its highest concentrations of game parks and nature reserves.

The most visited national reserves that are worth visiting for bird watching are the Serengeti National Reserve, Lake Manyara National Park, Ngorongoro Conservation Area, and more.

Having said that, few compare it to Tarangire National Park, especially during the dry season because of the low density of tourists and higher visibility for spotting rare and common bird species.

Tanzania is host to over 900 resident and 200 migrant bird species throughout the national parks and game reserves, whilst Tarangire National Park boasts 500 species.
