Caprivi-Kavango,13-23 October, 10 days, from R22 000 pps
This trip focuses on the specials of the north-eastern Namibia along the Zambezi and Kavango Rivers and the panhandle of the Okavango. This area is excellent for Pygmy Goose, African Skimmer, Rock Pratincole, Pel’s Fishing Owl, Wattled Crane and more. Being on the northern boundary of the Southern African region, it is a desirable location where species on the limits of their range, such as Souza’s Shrike, Rufous-bellied Tit and Sharp-tailed Starling, can be found, as well as being one of the easiest places to find the swamp specialist, Luapula Cisticola.
Eastern Zimbabwe and Central Mozambique, December, $2,000 pps
This trip offers your best chance of seeing the elusive African Pitta, as they perform their curious display at the start of the rainy season. Also present are African Broadbill, Swynnerton’s Robin and White-chested Alethe. We will visit the only known site for Bohm’s Bee-eater in the southern African region and will climb Mount Gorongosa for the localised population of Green-headed Oriole.
