Botswana, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Zambia & Mozambique
Letaka Safaris was the first safari company in Botswana to offer regular scheduled birding safaris. The directors of the company are all very keen birders who have been birding since childhood and have close to twenty years experience in leading bird-watching tours around Southern Africa. Birding in Botswana offers the global birder the opportunity to go bird-watching in one of the world’s most pristine wildernesses where phenomenal wildlife and scenery add to the birding experience.
Some of the bird watching safaris which we offer are the following:
The Livingstone Birding Trail – 17 Days Botswana, Namibia & Zambia
This is our most popular bird watching departure, we recently added on a trip to the town of Choma in southern Zambia where we go to find the Chaplin’s Barbet, Zambia’s only true endemic.
Northern Wings – 12 days Botswana
The Moremi Game Reserve Exploring the fringes of the Okavango Delta by mokoro, the freedom of the Khwai Concession Area, Chobe National Park and a boat cruise on the Chobe River .
Of Bats and Birds – 14 Days Zambia
This once in a lifetime experience is a sight to behold – millions of straw coloured fruit bats, the Nesting Shoebill and the search for the elusive African Pitta. From Livingstone to Lusaka – a phenominal 14 days
The Shoebill Safari – 17 Days Zambia
Our annual Shoebill Safari treks up through Zambia visiting South Kafue National Park, Kasanka National Park and the remote Bangweulu Swamps, home of the extraordinary Shoebill Stork. Our Shoebill Safari departs in May each year that we offer this trip.
