Trip report: Namibia, custom tour (Aug 2017) by Tropical Birding

Guided by Ken Behrens and Charley Hesse.

This was a custom tour run with a similar itinerary to our normal set-departure. We travelled from Windhoek down to the coast, then inland again to the Erongo Mountains and Etosha NP, then to the Okavango ecosystem, where the tour concluded in Maun, Botswana. Highlights included most of the Namibian near-endemics, Pel’s Fishing-Owl, and White-backed Night Heron. On the mammal front, several Black Rhinos and Lions were among many high points.

This report is in a different format than our typical reports. It is a photo book that was prepared for the participants on the trip, but still includes full trip lists for birds, mammals, reptiles, and butterflies in the back.
