Windhoek Birding day trips and short Birding excursions

Day 1

If you are unable to embark on a long birding safari, even a day trip to the hotspots around Windhoek will yield some highly satisfying birding. A lot of the Namibian endemics and other specials can be found close to the capital. A possible 2 or 3 day extension to include the coast and escarpment will increase the diversity of birds you can find in a short space of time.

On the day trips out of Windhoek specials likely to be found include:

  • Rockrunner
  • Bradfield's Swift
  • Damara Hornbill
  • Monteiro's Hornbill
  • White-tailed Shrike
  • Cape Penduline-Tit
  • Orange River Francolin
  • Violet-eared and Black-faced Waxbill
  • Acacia Pied Barbet
  • Pririt Batis
  • Carp's Black Tit
  • Rosy-faced Lovebird
  • Chestnut Weaver
  • Burnt-necked Eremomela
Yellow Morph

In addition to the above, on the trips a little further afield the specials include:

  • Hartlaub's Spurfowl
  • Ruppel's Parrot
  • Herero Chat
  • Violet Woodhoopoe
  • Dune Lark
  • Gray's Lark
  • Ruppel's Korhaan
  • Damara Tern
  • Orange River White-eye
  • Trac-trac Chat
  • Stark's Lark
  • Augur Buzzard
