Bird Watching in Tanzania

Bird watching   /  
 
Tanzania is a beautiful country that is overflowing with things to do and see. Many
people travel to Tanzania for the abundant wildlife and gorgeous scenery. For
birdwatchers, it is a veritable paradise. Bird watching in Tanzania is one of the most
exciting activities that you can do while on safari.
 
With nearly one thousand different species of birds, Tanzania is an ideal place to
visit for a bird watching adventure. Though numerous bird species can be found in
every area of the country, there are some places that stand out as being especially
exciting for bird enthusiasts or for anyone wanting to watch these colorful flyers.
 
Two of Africa’s most iconic birds can be found in Tanzania. The ostrich calls
Serengeti National Park home and can be commonly seen on the abundant and vast
grassland. Flamingos can be found at Momella Lakes in Arusha National Park and
are a beautiful sight when they take off from the water in a pink cloud.
 
Lake Manyara National Park is a great place to visit and enjoy a variety of bird
species. Over three hundred species have been recorded in the park, including three
species that are endemic to Tanzania.
 
Even more endemic species can be found in the Udzungwa Mountain National Park.
This is the place to see rare birds such as the Udzungwa partridge and rufous-
winged sunbird.
 
Finally, visiting the Selous Game Reserve is a great bird watching opportunity.
Viewing the birds from the riverbank is spectacular, and there is an abundance of
waterfowl to watch playing in the river.
 
Tanzania is known for its bird watching, and every area of the country has
something spectacular to offer to bird enthusiasts. Even if you are more interested
in the bigger wildlife species while on your safari, you will have a great time
watching the antics of Tanzania’s birds. Make sure to bring a camera, because you
will not want to miss any of it!
