Birding in Tanzania


– We love birding ♥

Birding in Tanzania

Tanzania is a fantastic birding destination, probaly even one of the greatest places on the planet!

With over 1100 bird species recorded, including more than twenty country and dozens of regional endemic species, Tanzania is a spectacular country for birding, offering a wide variety of habitats, including montane forest, miombo woodland, savanna, arid plains, and coastline, making it an important migratory passageway as well.

A tremendous amount of ornithological research has been carried out here in the past twenty years, which has hugely increased the information and resources for bird watching in Tanzania. Come for great endemics, near-endemics and speciality birds. Bird lovers – this is your mecca.

Birding has a very special place in Lemasani’s heart; the founder and director of Lemasani, Deo, is exceptionally good in birding and has in recent years also introduced the passion for bird watching to his partner Sonia.

We love to plan birding trips wheither or not that is your sole interest or if you want to mix it in with traditional game viewing. In all our safari vehicles we always have birding books and binoculars for you to use– even if you are not interested in bird watching we like to give you the option of exploring it and maybe planting a seed of interest.

Lemasani will take you to Tanzania’s best birding spots and make sure your driver guide is an experienced and professional bird guide as well as wildlife guide.
