Zambia’s official bird is the African Fish Eagle – seen on the flag. There are at least 740 different species of birds in Zambia some of which are on the IUCN’s list of endangered fowl such as the Shoebill Stork, Wattled Crane and Slaty Egret. Bird enthusiasts from all over the world visit Zambia particularly in the rainy season when the bush and flood plains are abundant with migratory birds.
Zambia has excellent birding safari opportunities wherever you go and especially Lochinvar NP, Nyika NP, Kasanka & Bangweulu. The Okavango Delta in Botswana and the Skeleton Coast in Namibia are probably the best known birding destinations outside of Zambia.
