The American Birding Association in partnership with Rockjumper Birding Tours offers this quintessential African safari with ultimate birding and big game experiences. Many of the over 1,000 bird species in Tanzania are large, colorful and easy to observe at the best and most accessible destinations:
- The Serengeti – home of the great wildebeest migration which we expect to encounter.
- Ngorongoro Crater – with the highest density of large predators in the world.
- Tarangire National Park – renowned for its incredible birding.
Upon arrival at Kilimanjaro International Airport, you will be met and transferred to our lspacoius accommodation in nearby Arusha, the safari capital of Tanzania. Our lodge boasts an extensive tropical garden which will no doubt provide numerous lifers for those who arrive in time for some birding. For those wishing to enjoy more extended birding and game viewing in and around Arusha we highly recommend Arusha National Park, which is offered as optional pre- and post-safari excursions
Tonight we will convene at 6pm for a private dinner and introduction to your ABA hosts and Rockjumper tour leaders, with details on the upcoming activities and opportunity for questions.
