Birding Africa Tours

- the Africa Specialists

Please enjoy exploring our brand new website, which we are still improving – let us know if you spot any missing info that we can amend to make it easier for you and others. We’d be grateful for any comments!

The African birding experts for the last 24 years, and the only company specialising in Africa-wide birding tours. Voted as one of the Top 5 Most Recommended tour companies in the world (Birdwatch 2010).

Birding Africa is a specialist birding tour company customising tours for both world listers and more relaxed holiday birders. We combine interests in mammals, butterflies, dragonflies, botany and other natural history aspects and will guide you to Africa’s and Madagascar’s most diverse birding destinations. Our guides’ knowledge of African birds and birding areas is our greatest strength and together we have rediscovered species, shared exciting observations with the birding community and had a fun time exploring our home continent. We’ve even written two acclaimed book guides on where to find Southern Africa’s and Madagascar’s best birds – Essential Birding: Western South Africa – Key Routes from Cape Town to the Kalahari and the Southern African Birdfinder.

Birding is more than our passion, it’s our lifestyle, and we are dedicated to making professional, best value trips filled with endemic species and unique wildlife experiences. Since 1997, we’ve run bird watching tours in South Africa and further into Africa for individual birders, small birding groups and top international tour companies. We’ve run Conservation Tours in association with the African Bird Club and work with and consult for a number of other top international tour companies and the BBC Natural History Unit.

  • The trip was everything I had hoped it to be. It was wonderful to see so many Egyptian vultures, and then of course all the endemics and other birds. Michael is a great guide, and I enjoyed the company of the other participants and learned a lot from them.  Too much to mention. Great trip!

  • Many thanks for arranging another amazing trip to Tanzania. We had a hugely enjoyable journey with a spectacular list of birds and mammals. Tertius has wonderful guiding skills, a vast range of wildlife knowledge, patience and a good sense of humour!

  • It was a fantastic trip in every way possible and I can’t speak highly enough of Vince. His expertise, general knowledge (not only of things pertaining to birds), personality, intelligence, sense of humor, were all top notch. Andrew was terrific too. Also, we really enjoyed getting to know the other two people in the group and the four of us got along very well. All around, everything surpassed my expectations.

    Cape to Kruger Tour - Feb 2023
  • Vince (aka the master of the African lbj) was a terrific guide. Knowledgeable, energetic, experienced and good tempered as well as being a good driver. As visitors to the RSA for the first time we learnt so much about the birds, wildlife and habitats but also about many aspects of the culture & contemporary current affairs & society which really added to our experience.

  • Just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our tour yesterday. Luke did an excellent job and we were very impressed with his enthusiasm, spotting and call identification. We also appreciated his patience whilst we took our photos.

  • Excellent day with Campbell, we saw many birds, especially the endemic ones. Excellent observation of the Rockjumper, Victorin’s Warbler … and great sighting of a Verreaux Eagle. Campbell found them very effectively, he knows them well and also the places. Very good birder, very nice. Thank you very much to you and your team!

  • I would like to express my gratitude for the Tankwa Karoo tour that you organized for me, with Joel Radue as a guide.  Joel was absolutely outstanding and managed to help me clear most of my wishlist with a remarkable efficiency.  He was not only very professional from the ornithological point of view, but also a very nice person and extremely attentive. This tour was undoubtedly a highlight of my visit to South Africa, as was my pelagic tour last week.

  • What a fabulous couple of days birding I had last week with Campbell and David. I learnt so much in those two days  thank you. I will happily recommend your company and guides to my birding friends back home in the UK. Again, many thanks!

  • Joel! He actually found the bird species we wanted & made sure that we saw them in the best possible way. He has a wealth of knowledge, was very motivated & told us a lot about plants & the landscape as well as the avifauna. He was also a safe & good driver & last but not least a nice guy. In short: 5 out of 5 star rating! I will gladly recommend Birding Africa & Joel to my colleagues!
