Tanzania is one of the best birding safari destination in Africa with 1156 confirmed bird species as of September 2021. Tanzania is also hot spot for wildlife and/or Photographic safari experience with the big 5, diversity of culture, great scenery and spectacular mountains.

For the best bird watching safari in Tanzania, we strongly recommend birders to visit Serengeti national park, Lake Manyara national park, Ngorongoro crater and Tarangire National Park.
There are 22 bird species endemic and thus unique to Tanzania, and a further 43 near-endemic birds which are restricted to Tanzania and neighboring countries like Kenya and Uganda.
Expect to see the following bird species in Tanzania; Ashy starling, Banded green sunbird, Fischer’s lovebird, Grey-breasted spurfowl, Iringa akalat, Kilombero weaver, Loveridge’s sunbird, Moreau’s sunbird, Mrs Moreau’s warbler, Pemba green pigeon, Pemba scops owl among others
Birding safari in Tanzania is good year-round, however the best tome for bird watching is from November to April when Tanzania hosts several migratory birds from Europe and northern Africa. During this time, several resident birds are nesting and are in breeding plumage.
The wettest months are March and April, and in most cases, several parts of Tanzania experience heavy storms which affects your birding time. The wet season is also the hottest time of the year which makes it uncomfortably hot more so at the coastal areas. If you want to combine birding and wildlife viewing, the dry season is always better.
