Our exclusive Moroccan birding tour begins in fabulous Marrakech, from where we will soon find ourselves winding up the snow-capped High Atlas Mountains away from the hustle and bustle of human activity. Woodland-cloaked slopes and alpine areas support North African endemics that include Moussier’s Redstart, African Crimson-winged Finch and Levaillant’s Woodpecker. After dropping down incredible mountain passes we then reach the coast at Agadir, where we will search the nearby lagoons and estuaries teeming with waterfowl, waders and gulls. However, our main target is one of the world’s most critically endangered birds, the Northern Bald Ibis or Waldrapp, now restricted to two colonies in Morocco and a recently introduced breeding colony in Spain. Moving inland, the countryside gradually becomes drier until we reach the spectacular red sand dunes of Erg Chebbi, near the Algerian border. Along the way we will search for specials including the rare Houbara Bustard, dainty Cream-coloured Courser, Desert Sparrow, African Desert Warbler and larks including Temminck’s, Thick-billed and Dupont’s.
