These 4 day birding wildlife safari tour mainly focuses on the birds the tour will start from Windhoek whereby the guide makes sure everyone reaches their target species. On these tour you will see different types of birds.
Our first stop will be at Daan Viljoen Game Reserve, a reserve on the western side of Windhoek that provides excellent dry-country birding. From here we make our way down the escarpment and across the spectacular plains of the Namib Desert.
We will arrive in Walvis Bay in the late afternoon. After settling into our perfectly situated accommodation for the evening we will get together for some afternoon birdwatching. We will spend the late afternoon at the famous Walvis Bay lagoon, which hosts several wonderful bird species.
We will return to our lodge to freshen up and then we will have dinner at one of the many good-quality establishments in town. We will then return to our lodge for a good night’s rest.
Overnight & Lagoon Lodge
Bed and Breakfast
After an early breakfast at the lodge we will focus on finding Dune Lark, Namibia’s only true endemic and a great bird to have on any birder’s list.
From here we will make our way north to Damaraland, driving past one of Namibia’s most recognizable landmarks in the distance, the Spitzkoppe.
The plains of Damaraland are home to many special bird species. This region is also home to an assortment of scientifically important desert-adapted wildlife such as African Elephant, Black Rhinoceros and Lion, which somehow survive and thrive in this near-barren landscape. If we are lucky we might see some of these special animals.
We should arrive at our lodge situated on the Huab River by late afternoon. It is close to the Brandberg, Namibia’s highest mountain. Our accommodation for tonight is a beautiful lodge, with stunning views. We will check in and have some time in our rooms. We will then get together to update our lists.
Overnight & Brandberg White Lady Lodge
Bed and Breakfast
After coffee and an early breakfast we will use the morning to explore the Huab River and surrounding Mopane woodland, home to several of the Namibian near endemics and other important species.
We will then have lunch and continue southeast to the incredible rocky topography of the Erongo area. The landscape is dominated by rugged granite outcrops standing tall over the surrounding arid plains. It is the best area in the country to search for the very secretive Hartlaub’s Spurfowl, and although probably better to search for this special species tomorrow morning, we will have a quick walk among the boulders to try our luck. Our lodge is perfectly situated amongst the rocks and staying here is the perfect ending to an amazing birding tour.
We will have dinner and update our lists, and perhaps sit on the deck and enjoy the incredible views. After dinner we retire to our tents and enjoy a good night’s sleep; tomorrow morning we have some big targets!
Overnight & Omandumba Bush Camp
Full Board – Dinner, Bed, Breakfast and Lunch
We will start the day with an early walk around the lodge. The granite hills surrounding the lodge are famous for some very special birds. We will return to the dining area for a late breakfast, and at this time the massive numbers of Rosy-faced Lovebird should be busy with their morning foraging. It is special sipping your coffee with hundreds of these colourful (and luckily wild) lovebirds around you! After our exciting morning of birding we will pack up our bags, check out and drive back to Windhoek. It is a drive of about 2 and a half hours to the southeast back to the capital.
Once in the city we will either take you to the Hosea Kutako International Airport, or back to your hotel or guesthouse if you are staying over, or we could swing by one of the other birding hotspots around town if you are only flying onward later in the evening.
Walvis Bay, with its large bay and sand dunes, is an important centre of tourism activity in Namibia. Attractions include the artificial Bird Island, centre of a guano collection industry, the Dune 7 sand dune, the salt works, the abundant birdlife, and a museum.
The average cost of living in Walvis Bay is $726, which is in the top 28% of the least expensive cities in the world, ranked 6664th out of 9294 in our global list and 6th out of 10 in Namibia.
The Walvis Bay Ramsar Site supports up to 250,000 birds at peak times during the summer season. Intra-African migrants, including Greater and Lesser Flamingos, breed elsewhere in Africa but feed in the Walvis Bay wetlands, and may be seen throughout the year and particularly during the winter months.
Catch picturesque views of a flourishing flamingo colony in Walvis Bay lagoon. Located less than 25 miles south of Swakopmund, Walvis Bay is home to diverse birdlife. You can easily spot these majestic birds from a tidal pool at Pelican Point or the promenades along the coastline.
Wild flamingos are more active at night.
Daan Viljoen provides excellent dry country birding and could yield some very special species. This includes Monteiro’s Hornbill, Verreaux’s Eagle, Rockrunner, Carp’s Tit, Short-toed Rock Thrush, Orange River Francolin, White-tailed Shrike, Rosy-faced Lovebird and Barred Wren-warbler.
Situated approximately 30km North West of the small town of Uis is the highest mountain in Namibia, the Brandberg that stands out as an imposing feature in the otherwise flat gravel plains of the central Namib Desert.
A popular holiday destination for avid bird-watchers, Namibia is home to at least 13 endemic species of birds, 8 of which are reportedly from the Etosha region. There are over 620 species of birds native to Namibia. Of that 14 are endemic to the country.
