Tanzania birding is very productive with over 40 nearly endemic birds. This makes Tanzania among Africa’s top birding destinations.
Tanzania may be divided into three main geographical regions plus two smaller western regions, the narrow coastal region including the islands of Zanzibar and Pemba, the Central Plateau, the Mountains, Lake Victoria, and the far northwest. Birding in the rainy season can be very enjoyable. The rains tend to come in afternoon squalls and rain-out days are unusual. Some areas become impenetrable due to muddy conditions, but most birding areas remain accessible.
That is the reason why many birdwatching tours to Tanzania are scheduled for October-December and March-May. Wildlife viewing is still good and the birding is brilliant during those times Central Plateau of Tanzania is a major attraction of the country, as that is the region of huge plains and major national parks and reserves such as the Serengeti, Lake Manyara, Lake Tarangire, Lake Natron, and the Ngorongoro Conservation Area.
