Our guides have grown up along the Zambezi. They know the river’s creatures like the path that winds from their home to the water itself. The calls of the African Fish Eagle or the bleating-warbler formed the background music of their childhoods. On a cruise down the Zambezi they will impart this knowledge of the nature surrounding Royal Chundu with you, pointing out the range of birdlife waiting to be sought out. The finchlarks and flufftails tempting birdwatchers from the riverbank trees or the jacanas and kingfishers beside the hippos and crocodiles of the shallower reaches.
Choose from a morning (sunrise), afternoon (sunset), nighttime or full day birding safari, tailored to your individual requirements.
The full day safari includes guided vehicle transfers to the plains and other indigenous forest areas and/or river transfers to the islands. This tour is catered specifically for birding specialists who want to look for specific birds. The shorter safaris last approximately two and a half hours. Take along your binoculars and our extensive birder’s list to tick off the species you manage to glimpse on your river safari.
