Tanzania is very productive in birdwatching safaris. The country has close to 40 endemic birds which makes it among Africa’s top birding destinations.
Tanzania as a birdwatching destination has plentiful wildlife, huge savannah, big mountains, and coastal plains filled with diverse species.
Tanzania is a magnificent country for birdwatching safaris in East Africa, offering a wide variety of habitats, including montane forest, miombo woodland, savanna, arid plains, and coastline, making it an important migratory passageway as well
Tanzania birding tours 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.
Birdwatching in Tanzania in the rainy season can be very enjoyable. The rains tend to come in afternoon thunderstorms 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 safaris are thrilling and birding and photography is superb during those months
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 National Park Lake Manyara, Lake Tarangire, Lake Natron, and the Ngorongoro Conservation Area.
