The Delta is a haven for wildlife that is sustained by the year-round abundance of water and attracts stunning water birds.

It is the breeding time for  and many migrant birds such as the Southern Carmine Bee-Eater. The heronries have come alive with chirping young birds which are a treat to photograph! Bird enthusiasts can explore the delta waterways by motorboat, a birder’s paradise, especially for herons and storks in the breeding season.

Botswana offers some of Africa’s finest birding. November to March is the most productive time of year to see birds (when the number of bird species is at its highest with migratory species having arrived to join Botswana’s resident species).  The northern wetlands are the best places in Africa to see the near-endemic Slaty Egrets, the endangered Wattled Cranes and the huge Pel’s Fishing Owls and harbour an unrivalled selection of herons, storks and other egrets.
