Birding tours with Umdingi

Zimbabwe is a birders paradise, in fact some places like the Matobo National Park hold one of the greatest concentrations of birds of prey in the world. The country is also home to over 700 species of birds, including the national bird of Zimbabwe, the majestic African fish eagle.

You’ll set off with your own private birding tour guide either by land or water. (Why not make it both with our Umdingi multi-day trips?) And with our bespoke offerings, every experience on your trip is tailored to you. We don’t do generic or ‘off-the-shelf’ here at Umdingi!

Some things to note before your Zimbabwe birding experience

Your safety is our absolute priority. Although our focus will be on spotting birds, you will likely also come into contact with other Zimbabwe wildlife. So, your private guide is there to keep you safe and ensure you have an unforgettable experience.
^
Make sure to bring plenty of skin-cover – sunhats, long sleeves, sarongs etc. But bear in mind it will be very hot, so you should wear loose, flowing fabrics like cotton.
^

Bring a camera if you’d like, but please no flash photography.

^
Don’t wear any bright colours – stick to natural shades of brown, khaki, tan, grey and olive green.

When booking your Zimbabwe birding tour, you’ll video chat with Umdingi owner, Clint. Clint will get to know your needs and tailor the trip around you. He’ll also provide you with full information about how to prepare for your holiday. So, you can be sure you’re in safe hands!
