Birding Tour in Namibia & Botswana

Join Grassland Bird Trust (GBT) for an unforgettable AFRICAN BIRDWATCHING AND WILDLIFE VIEWING EXPERIENCE!

Have you ever wanted to go on an African birding adventure? This is your chance! Grassland Bird Trust is working with Destination: Wildlife and Nature Travel Birds to provide you with a hand-crafted birding and wildlife watching trip made just for Grassland Bird Trust! This tour will not only benefit local conservation in Namibia and Botswana but will also help fund GBT’s projects related to grassland conservation.

On this trip, we will seek out 620 species of birds and wildlife (lions, elephants, rhino, cheetah, giraffe, zebra, and more) traveling by air-conditioned vehicle with a window seat for each guest, take short walks and a private Okavango River cruise. After unforgettable days, we’ll enjoy breathtaking sunsets and delicious dinners at comfortable full-service lodges!

GBT board director Paloma Spina and travel advisor Roberta Kravette will take you from Windhoek, Namibia’s capital, north through Etosha National Park and east all the way to Botswana. Check out our trip flyer for more information.
