BIRD WATCHING

Brown Parrot Safaris offers bird watching safaris provided to you by not only experts but

true birders themselves .Tanzania is a country located in East Africa. To the north it

borders Kenya, to the south Lake Malawi and Mozambique, to the west lake Tanganyika

and Uganda and to the east its shores ride on the Indian Ocean. Tanzania has the

largest lake in the world; Lake Victoria (a freshwater lake and home to 400 bird species),

Mount Kilimanjaro (one of the seventh wonders) and a vast unspoiled wilderness for game

viewing (Serengeti, Norongoro Crater, Tarangire and Manyara National Parks).

 

The geography is diverse leading to various climates. Although in the tropics, the higher

areas are reasonably cool. Because it straddles the equator there are just two

seasons - wet and dry. Tanzania's variety of species of birds, over 1000, varies in each

location due to the nation's geographic diversity. From mountain forest to tropical coast,

every conceivable altitude range: deserts, open savannah grassland, lowland forest,

bush and scrub, lakes and mudflats.

 

The National Parks have open savannah grassland, bush and scrub with large rivers running through them. Top species include: Secretary Bird, numerous vultures, eagles and hawks, Yellow-throated Sand grouse, Bare-faced Go-away Bird, Gabon Nightjar, Lilac-breasted Roller, Ground Hornbill, Red-throated Tit, Sooty Chat, and a wide variety of larks, pipits and widowbird. The thick riverine forest bordering the Mara and Talek rivers, hold African Fin foot, Livingstone's & Ross's Turaco, Giant Kingfisher, Blue Flycatcher, Double-toothed Barbet and the rare Pell’s Fishing Owl. The alkaline Lake Natron is also located near the National Parks; feeding ground for over one million [exceptionally two million] Lesser Flamingo. Greater flamingo are also found, in far smaller numbers. Mt. Kilimanjaro has three vegetation zones: Rain forest, Alpine Forest, and Moorland, making for species diversity.

 

Many habitats of East Africa provide dream bird watching locations, and a dauntingly long list of endemic species that you simply have to travel with Brown Parrot Safaris to find.
