Bird Photography In Africa
Much of the attention of a safari is given to the Шbig five' that every safari goer wants to tick off their list. But there are also those who are just as interested in the diverse bird life of the great African Continent and the opportunities for photographing African bird life are as diverse as the species that live on this inspiring continent.
Imagine yourself, after an early morning breakfast and under the rising African sun, making your way by road to Amboseli National Park. Here the surrounding game reserve covers 1260 sq miles and although it is mostly arid woodland it does have a series of swamps and lakes that provides a year round water supply for wildlife and attracts birds and animals alike to drink and frolic in the shallows.
Now imagine yourself at the foot of an awe-inspiring mountain, as a snow-capped peak rises through the early morning mist to disappear into the clouds. And armed with your camera you will have the priceless opportunity to photograph the birds that call this part of Africa home. Photograph magnificent Mount Kilimanjaro the highest peak in Africa, before a full day birding with our eagle eyed birding guide. We are confident that you will be adding a new species or two to your birding list.
Geologically, the Taita Hills are the northern most outposts of the mountains of Tanzania and Malawi. Arid Bushland flanks the hills, giving way near the top to cultivated strips and remnant patches of ancient forest. At this spot where mountains and forests meet the vast plains you might see the Bar throated Apala, a Taita Falcon or even a Taita Thrush, Zosterops silvanus.
If you safari to the Arabuko-sokoke forest at its altitude of 0-21m above sea level, you will encounter three types of habitat; Mixed forest, Brachystegia woodland and Cynometra forest with a canopy height of 7-8 m. Species likes Sokoke scopes owl, Clarke's Weaver, Amani sunbird, Ant-eater thrush, Eastern Nicator, Mombasa woodpecker among other globally threatened species are seen only in this forest.
There is no doubt that for bird watchers an African holiday has far more to offer than just the traditional big game. For the bird watcher this is a continent of continual wonder and riches and diverse species all waiting for the click of your shutter. From the clouds of pink created by flamingos rising from the water, their wings vivid in the early morning light, to the bizarre bobbing of the secretary bird, and the ominous presence of the circling vulture, there is a constantly changing vista of bird life that will delight even the most experienced bird watcher and photographer. When combining the best wildlife and birdlife areas on a safari you'll need a bit of knowledge about the areas, habitats and seasons so it is advised that you contact a professional safari operator of African holidays. For bird watching with a bit of big game spotting thrown in, Africa has the warmest of welcomes awaiting you!
