Best Time for Bird Watching
Birding in Saadani is good year-round. Migratory birds from Europe and northern Africa can be found in November to April, making this the best time for bird watching. Additionally, this is nesting season for resident birds, and many can be spotted in their breeding plumage. The months of June through October are considered the Dry season, which is the best time for watching wildlife.
