From the lily-choked backwaters of the Okavango Panhandle, the flamingo-studded lagoons of Walvis Bay to the game-filled waterholes of Etosha and the breath-taking Victoria Falls, this tour provides incredible contrasts and an eco-tourism experience like no other!

This very popular overland safari is a birding and wildlife extravaganza, visiting some of the major highlights of three of Africa’s most remarkable countries, all offering vast areas of pristine wilderness. Birdlife abounds and we search for an impressive array of localized, as well as more widespread African species such as the sought-after Slaty Egret, Wattled Crane, Ludwig’s Bustard, Rüppell’s Korhaan, Secretarybird, Pel’s Fishing Owl (one of ten possible owls!), Hartlaub’s Spurfowl, the huge Coppery-tailed Coucal, Rüppell’s Parrot, Monteiro’s Hornbill, Rockrunner, Violet Wood Hoopoe, Bare-cheeked and Black-faced Babblers, Rosy-faced Lovebird, White-tailed Shrike, Herero Chat, Dune and Gray’s Larks, Violet-eared Waxbill – and so much more besides!

What's more, we have time to observe mammals, large and small, ranging from elephant shrews to Africa Elephant, Fur Seals to Hippopotamus, as well as exciting range of charismatic African big game including the fabled ’Big 5’.

The spectacular and dramatic scenery, coupled with quality mammal viewing and exceptional birding, all combine to make this one of our most popular birding adventures!

What our clients say about us

Gregory de Klerk
CV - Namibia, Botswana & Zimbabwe 2022

I booked this tour in 2019, Tour was canceled twice but it was worth the wait. Such an enjoyable group to be traveling with. Greg De Klerk is a wealth of knowledge about all the flora and fauna of this part of Africa. We started with the might and beauty of Victoria Falls and the beauty of these three countries just kept unfolding as we went. Not only did we see so many birds and animals we also learned exciting things about each of those animals and birds. All done with Greg's great sense of humour. He took the time to see that each guest was personally looked after, I would travel with him again. Accommodations were excellent. Food abundant and superb. It was a great trip.

Daniel Danckwerts
SM - NBZ 2019

Daniel is enthusiastic and knowledgeable, always with a cheerful smile. The vehicle was as comfortable as possible for group travel and his thoughtfulness about bringing a little stepstool made it all the more better for us short people! He handled glitches efficiently and still cheerfully

Julian Parsons
LH - NBZ 2022

The best part of the tour was our guide, Julian Parsons. He was extremely knowledgeable about the birds, mammals, and plants and trees. He also was very personable and inclusive, making sure everyone was able to see the wildlife. I would go on other tours he plans if they fit my schedule. So, definitely, do what is needed to keep him on your staff.

Heinz Ortmann
LG - Namibia, Botswana & Zimbabwe

This was my first birding tour, and what a great introduction it was. I thoroughly enjoyed the tour. The birding, wildlife viewing and accomodation were excellent and the vehicle very comfortable. Our tour leader, Heinz, was knowledgable, enthusiastic and managed all the logistics very well. Heinz ensured all members of the group (with their differing birding abilities) enjoyed good birding. This trip exceeded my expections. Thanks for providing such a great experience!

André Bernon
SS & SC: Namibia

Thank you for a wonderful trip! Thank you, Andre Bernon, for all you did to make it so memorable!
