The enchantment of birds in Southern Africa

Written on: October 19, 2016   |   I visited in September 2016 This safari was excellent in every respect. Our guide, Nick, began by asking us about our main goals for the trip. Nick, a Namibian vet, has a vast knowledge of birds and wildlife, as well as the flora, of the region, and beyond. He was generous in sharing that knowledge, never tiring of answering questions. It was a pleasure to have Nick as our guide.

The lodges chosen by Nature Travel Namibia (NTN) were situated on three great African rivers: the Zambezi, the Kwando, and the Okavango. Accommodations were comfortable with gorgeous views and the food was good.

The safari was well-planned by NTN, with every detail thought of in advance. There was a nice balance of intensive birding and relaxation during the hot hours of the day if we so chose. Otherwise, it was out for more birding in the bush or garden, or out on the river. The variety and numbers of birds we saw, including 'specials', was unsurpassed.

We loved this safari and would highly recommend NTN to any traveller interested in nature and in this wondrous area of the world.

Additional Note: Two parks not in the checklist below that we also visited are: Bwabwata National Park and Mahango Game Reserve.

We thoroughly enjoyed our almost 3 week trip through Namibia, Botswana and Zambia. Nick put together for us a well paced itinerary that took in some amazing experiences and sights. A visit to the Namib desert and Etosha is recommended to all.

The accommodation was also well chosen for the locations, comfort and food

Big thanks to Jakes for looking after us ... read more

In a fantastic trip around Namibia (and a bit of Botswana), Nick was able to show us the best of the nature of that part of the world. Despite our many requests (animals of all kinds, plants, rocks) he organized the trip so that we could see almost everything. Indefatigable and attentive at all times to our needs. A pleasure to travel with him. Hopefully we can rep... read more

My wife and I recently went to Namibia on a guided, nature-oriented road-trip/safari. I had high expectations, but I wasn’t prepared to be overwhelmed by the astonishing beauty and variety of Namibia’s myriad landscapes and wildlife. Nick Buys, of Nature Travel Namibia, was our guide – you would be hard-pressed to find a more passionate ambassador for Namibia, its ... read more

Recently spent 3 weeks touring Zambia, Botswana, and Namibia in the Southwest part of Africa and the highlight of this trip was Etosha National Park in Namibia. At the end of the dry season we saw so many animals at the watering holes, each day was filled with lions, elephants, zebras, and the rare black rhino. A hidden gem for sure. Namibia is a beautiful and dive... read more
