Bird Watching

BEST PARK FOR BIRDING

All the well-known safari parks offer good birding opportunities and specials can be found pretty much everywhere you go. The often overlooked, Arusha National Park has an amazing diversity of habitats, which host an incredible list of 400 species in a small area. Lake Manyara offers a good variety of waterbirds.

BEST TIME FOR WATCHING

The birdlife in Tanzania is good year-round, but at its best from November to April when the migratory birds from Europe and Northern Africa are present. At this time, many resident bird species are nesting and are in breeding plumage. The wettest months are March and April, when parts of the country may experience storms on a daily basis. The wet season is also the hottest time of the year, which may be uncomfortably hot on the coast. For wildlife viewing, the dry season is better.

Best time for birdwatching
The birdlife in Tanzania is good year-round, but at its best from November to April when the migratory birds from Europe and Northern Africa are present. At this time, many endemic bird species are nesting and sport their breathtakingly beautiful breeding plumage. The wettest months are March and April, which may be uncomfortably hot on the coast. For wildlife viewing, the dry season is better.

Best parks for birding

All the well-known safari parks offer fantastic birding opportunities. Although often overlooked, Arusha National Park has an amazing diversity of habitats that host an incredible list of 400 species. It is remarkable to find concentrated in a small area (and also very conveniently located near the modern urban amenities of Arusha City). Lake Manyara National Park offers a good variety of waterbirds, the most emblematic of which are the brilliant pink flamingos which dot it shores.
