Victoria Falls Birding Safari

What makes this area (and indeed this Victoria Falls activity) unique is it's "specials". These are bird species that are not only rare and elusive in other parts of Southern Africa but often only occur along the Zambezi River's mighty water course. Some of these specials include Rock Pratincole and African Skimmer both of which are seasonal migrants, nesting on the sandbanks and rocks along the river. Dickinson's Kestrel are often seen high in the Ilala Palms that line the banks. while the legendary Pel's Fishing Owl call the large dense Mahoganys that cluster the islands their home. The secretive Half-Collared Kingfishers, frequent the overhanging trees along the banks. These over hanging branches also home the even more secretive White-Backed Night Heron and rare African Finfoot. Seasonally, Osprey can be seen searching the waters for fish and the rare Grey-Headed Parrot can be heard screeching as they fly over head.
