Birding Tours at Gwahumbe – Join us on the 13th of June

Over the past few years we have held many birding tours with the wonderful David Hoddinott and team. Our most recent trip included some new bird sightings which pushed our birding list up to 238 bird species. These range from forest species such as the Trumpeter Hornbill and colourful Narina Trogon, waterfowl, grassland “little brown jobs”, bushveld birds such as thrushes mousebirds and barbets, to a variety of raptors of which the Crowned Eagle is recorded to have bred in the valley for over twenty-five years. Another endangered species that occurs here is the Ground Hornbill.

The Gwahumbe valley is home to thousands of birds and has become a hot spot for some memorable day trips. We will be having our next birding tour with David Hoddinott, Andre Bernon, Glen Valentine & Doug McCullough from the Birding Diversity Consultants. Find the full details below:
