Our Namibian Endemics tour is targeted at only the most sought after and special birds to be found in Namibia. This compact 11 day tour will find not only a stunning array of endemic and near endemic birds, but will also take in the world famous Etosha National Park and the array of great game to be found there. We begin our journey in Windhoek, Namibia’s capital, and an area that offers a superb introduction to the birds of this amazing country. Thereafter we drive through the ancient Namib Desert, a land of enormous red dunes and inhospitable rocky desert. The cold Benguela Current is responsible for the cold, rich upwelling along southern Africa’s West coast, and its biological wealth we will sample at Walvis Bay, an estuarine system that holds around 100 000 waterbirds in summer! Leaving the coast, we journey inland to the scenic Spitzkoppe and Namibia’s highest mountain, Brandberg. We spend time in the endemic-rich Erongo Mountains, our lodge conveniently located right in the heart of the action. We will then travel north to sample the impressive mammalian (and avian!) delights Etosha National Park, before completing out journey beneath the amphitheatre of Waterberg Plateau National Park.
