With over 450 species, a mix of terrains and a dramatic African backdrop, the Chobe River is the perfect setting for a highly rewarding birdwatching safari. Birding season starts in September, when the first migrants arrive, boosting the bird population by up to 20% compared to the winter months.
Whether you’re a guest on the Zambezi Queen, on one of her three Chobe Princesses or at the tented Ichingo Chobe River Lodge, you’ll have access to your own knowledgeable guide and tender boat for your birding safari. This will mean many hours spotting birds such as African skimmers, rock pratincoles and the African finfoot as well as cattle egrets, fish eagles, open-billed storks, lesser-striped swallows, pied kingfishers and the striking carmine bee-eater.
