wonderfull Birding Safari in Zambia, Caprivi and Chobe with Nick Buys

This 2 weeks birds and mammals trip in Southern Africa was our second trip with Nick Buys. We have been already with him in Namibia 4 years ago in a very succesfull trip.
We visited South of Zambia (Nkanga River Conservation Area, South Kafue and Livingstone surroundings), the Caprivi Strip (Kwando River and Mahango Game Reserve) and Northern Botswana (Okavango Panhandle and northern Chobe).

The places we visited were wonderfull. We felt the privilege to be the only ones in the middle of the bush and his fauna in the very preserved Nanzhila Plains-Kafue National Park. We had excelent boat trips on Zambezi, Chobe, Okavango and Kwando Rivers. Sunsets were stuning !
We stayed in very confortable and peacefull lodgings were we could appreciate the magic of wild Africa.

This trip was focused on a list of possible life's firsts, for both birds and mammals. The lists was not so long, as we have been already in various trips in eastern and southern Africa. It consisted most of all in specialities and endemics, as Black-cheeked Lovebird, Schalow's Turaco, Pel's Fishing-owl, Bradfield's Hornbill, Chaplin's Barbet, African Broadbill, Miombo Tit, Copper Sunbird, Black-eared Seed-eater...

We managed to see more than 300 bird species, and almost all the possible species on our list that occurs in the area.
We only failed for 3 species of Miombo forest, certainly because of the severe drought that occured this year. Actually forests were very quite, and Nick had to work hard to find us some dificult birds in that conditions. On the other hand, and certainly because of the drought, this trip was very succesfull for small raptors as African Cuckoo-hawk, Lizard Buzzard, Western Banded Snake Eagle, African Goshawk, Ovambo Sparrowhawk, Little Sparrohawk, Eurasian Hobby, Dickinson's Kestrel... We had excellent sightings of a Lanner hunting a Cape Turtle Dove, a Dickinson's Kestrel drinking at a watter hole and a pair of Little Sparrohawks breeding.

Mammals sightings were also great, with 45 species.
The best was the day spent with a troup of 21 Wild Dogs in Kafue (10 adults and 11 puppies) : they spent the day resting and playing at the side of a water hole in the company of many herbivores (surprisingly very relaxed) and birds who came to drink, including Black-cheeked Lovebirds. At the end of the afternoon, we could follow them one hour hunting in the bush. At the end, we didn't see them catching anything, but a pair of breeding leopards managed to catch an impala that was runing away from the Wild Dogs !
Thanks to some night drives and night walks, we also had a good selection of nocturnal mammals, with 2 species of Galago, Common Genet, African Civet, Bush Pig, South African Porcupine...

We want to thank Nick warmly for this trip. Again we really appreciated his cualities as a guide, his profesionalism, his excelent knowings in the species and the habitats, his sens of respect of nature, his organisation, his patience and his excellent sense of humor.
We hope to come back soon in Africa for another such succesfull trip with him.

Everything you could hope for!

We recently went on a 3-week self-drive tour that was completely organized by Nature Travel Namibia. They booked us a 4x4 rental car with rooftop tents as well as all of our accommodations and some of the activities. Everything was organized exactly as we wanted, and we had no unpleasant surprises during our trip. Just the holiday you would hope for, nice and relaxing but also full of wonderful activities to enjoy the wildlife and landscapes to the fullest. Communication with Nature Travel prior to the trip all went very smooth, they are very friendly and helpful and always eager to assist you in any way possible. The tour itself was wonderful, we absolutely loved Namibia and will certainly be coming back! We will definitely book via Nature Travel again, so highly recommendable!

Trip to the Namib

Everything was perfect. San-Mari and Lucky were the best.

our guide was so knowledgeable re Africa, ecology, recycling, animal habits, and birding

We have been planning our safari for over a year. We have had many emails with Nick with many questions. Some silly and most very informative. When we sent an email he would answer within a few days. This was the best trip of our lives. We were a little nervous before the trip but once there we felt very safe with Nick as our guide. This trip was so far above our expectations I can’t believe it. Everywhere we stayed showed us a different view of Africa. We stayed in lodges, tents, 5star hotels, and open air rooms. Each held its own kind of enjoyment for us on our safari. Everyone in Africa was so nice to us and so friendly. We cannot believe we had such a wonderful time in Africa. It was a long flight but well worth the time. We think that we may want to visit another area of Africa in the future. We saw all the animals we wanted to such as cheetah, leopard, wild dogs, hyenas, lions, Cape buffalo, elephants, giraffes, zebra, impala, hippos, and rhinos, baboons and more. Thank you Nick for the trip of a lifetime!

Nick our Guide put our Safari together it was top notch in all aspects of the safari.

It was very easy to communicate via email with Nick on any Questions we had. I was traveling with my wife and 4 friends and all communications that they had with Nick were answered via email promptly.Every place we went to on the Safari was excellent, in viewing the animals, the lodgings that he had set up for us. The service staff at all the locations we visited were very friendly and went out of their way to make our vacation wonderful. All of us in our group have agreed that Nature Travel Namibia was the best for our safari trip from start to finish.
