Attracting both water and forest birds, the Lower Zambezi Valley is home to over 370 species of birds, including big names such as the Pel’s Fishing Owl, the Narina Trogon, African Skimmers and the Livingstone Flycatcher.

Moses Tembo is our top birding guide. With him at your side, you will be amazed at the number of birds you will find on a day out on the river or in the bush.

If you are keen to see the summer migrants such as the Southern Carmine Bee-eater and the Broad-billed Roller, visit us towards the end of the season during the month of November.

As we set off early each morning by boat, by game drive vehicle or on foot to explore the diverse habitats, all you need is a good pair of binoculars, a hat, sun cream, a field guide and your bird list.

Birding is very much a specialist safari activity and we aim to offer the serious birders a private guide where possible. If private guiding is imperative, this can be pre-booked at an additional charge.


I could go on and on but to sum this holiday up, a luxurious experience in a place of amazing natural beauty and wonder. This place is my piece of paradise and I will certainly be returning as I have no need to try anywhere else now I have found this.
