|About our Mozambique Trips|
Mozambique offers superb and exciting birding in some amazing places, from the vast wet grasslands of Rio Savane to the to lowland forest and savannah in the "Coutadas" of the Zambezi valley. Then there is the awesome forest on Mount Gorongosa and fascinating Miombo woodlands in the region which offers a host of specials. All in all, this is still one of the most exciting and in places, unspoilt birding destinations available on the sub-continent.All our trips concentrate on the most diverse and exciting localities in Central Mozambique. Our longer winter trips include the wonderful and unique area to the south-west of Panda - made famous by the presence of an isolated population of Olive-headed Weaver. We usually also include Rio Save Game reserve, while summer trips have an emphasis on localities where African Pittas occur regularly as breeding visitors. Central Mozambique offers a host of special birds not easily found elsewhere, and apart from the Olive-headed Weaver and African Pitta, these include specials like Blue Quail, Locust Finch, Mascarene Martin, Barred Long-tailed Cuckoo, Twinspot Indigobird, Collared Flycatcher, (European) Blackcap, Eleonora's Falcon, Great Snipe and White-chested Alethe. See the list of specials here for some of the great birds we expect to encounter on our trips. Indicator Birding has been organizing Mozambique birding trips for 6 years, and Etienne Marais, who will be your leader knows the localities and the birds intimately. We provide 29Mhz CB radios to all vehicles in order to ensure a smooth and pleasurable trip with maximum birds. We do minimal birding in convoy, in order to ensure that everyone has an equal chance of seeing all the birds on offer!
Our results in terms of actual birds seen are excellent, and we specialize in showing participants good views of all the birds concerned. All of our previous trip reports are available and we can (on request) also supply names and contact details of all those who have been our Mozambique trip previously.
