Zambia Birding Tours
Zambia, officially the Republic of Zambia, is a country well entrenched in the ‘African safari experience’ – complete with an abundance of game and wildlife, a fine selection of luxurious lodges with all the amenities you can think of, and some very wild areas – all of which combine seamlessly to give you the perfect break from your normal life and the world as a whole. Only adding to its credible reputation is its status as being one of the safest countries in the world to travel in. Zambia has, however, been overlooked for far too long regarding its bird watching potential, perhaps due to the country only formally having one endemic bird species. Fortunately this impression is rapidly changing, and many birders are recognizing the excellent bird watching potential this country has, resulting in a spike in avitourism-related activities over recent years and putting birdwatching tours to Zambia firmly on the map.
This large, land-locked country is located in south-central Africa and is bordered by a number of countries, namely Namibia, Botswana, Angola, the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Tanzania, Malawi, Mozambique and Zimbabwe. Zambia being relatively sparsely populated, its well-laid-out road network, and English being one of its official languages all add up to make this an easy and enjoyable country to traverse.
