Although there are no endemic birds in Zimbabwe, the country boasts more than 50 species that do not occur in South Africa.

Mavuradonha Wilderness is one of Zimbabwe’s true wildernesses – seldom visited, even by the locals.
Umfurudzi Park has rich biodiversity and supports a large spectrum of wildlife, including several special bird species.
The Namib Desert has a fascinating array of plant, animal and bird species, surviving in sand dunes of all shapes and sizes and vast gravel plains stretching for as far as the eye can see.The central Namib, an area confined by the Atlantic Ocean in the west and the escarpment to the east, sandwiched between the Kuiseb River in the south and Huab River in the north, is the area that we will be visiting.
This superb tour combines the sparsely populated semi-desert of Bushmanland with its exciting and highly desirable South African endemic birds with the stark beauty of the vast mountain desert known as the Richtersveld. It also provides a juicy taste of the floral splendour of springtime Namaqualand and the rugged beauty and mystique of the Diamond Coast.
