When we first went on safari in Africa, the intention was to see the animals. However, it is impossible not to notice the vast number of birds of all shapes and sizes, and some brilliantly coloured.
There are more than 2,500 species of birds in Africa and the list below is just a tiny selection. These are the ones we have seen, identified and managed to photograph. Click on the links below for photographs and information. We are adding more species after each trip to Africa, so please check back if you cannot find what you are looking for.
Finally, please take a look at our bird gallery which showcases some of the best bird photographs.
