Namibia and Botswana Birding and Wildlife with Okavango, Etosha, and Victoria Falls 

2023 and 2024 Pricing: ZAR 135,950, $7,420 USD*, or £5,811 GBP* for 18 Days and 17 Nights




  • The Tour package includes all lodging, meals*, and access fees to reserves, parks, and other birding sites. 

  • Premier Bird Guide: All of our tours use the services of an excellent bird guide, often a well-recognized expert on birding in this area. Most trips have two excellent local birding guides.

  • Top-Rated Preparation Services: We support your preparation for the trip. We provide information on the birds you will see and all the travel details, including all logistic details (arrival plans, trip itinerary, lodging details, and more), information on entry into Namibia, Botswana, and Zambia, and information on travel health issues, packing information and more. Most of our clients comment that our Trip Participation Guide is the best they have ever seen.  

  • Transport and Airport Transfers

    • Local ground transport is included. This includes a large transport van for most of the trip and jeeps in some locations.

    • We also have a driver pick you up at the airport upon arrival, and we arrange for a transfer back to the airport at the end of the trip.  

  • Acre for Bird Conservation: As part of our efforts to support bird conservation, we purchase in the name of customers (for each booking) at least one acre (but averaging between three and four acres) of wilderness to support bird conservation. As our trip prices are often 20% (and often even a better deal) less than our competition, this does not really cost you more and it is a great way to support bird conservation around the world.

  • Small-Group Pricing: All the prices mentioned above are for tour groups of seven participants. We are happy to provide pricing for private groups with fewer than seven participants.


Possible Additions to Basic Trip Pricing:

  • None


*Pricing Notes and More Details:


  • Trip Priced Fixed in ZAR: The trip price is fixed in South African Rand (ZAR). Pricing in US Dollars, GBP, and other currencies should be considered and estimated from June 2023. A final invoice will be based on exchange rates charged by our banks about 100 days before the start of the trip.

    • Please note that each year over the last few years (historically speaking) the US Dollar strengthens against the ZAR between the time we price the trip in May to the time the trips run the following year. So US Dollar pricing should improve.

    • I believe the British Pound will strengthen in the months ahead, again giving UK clients better pricing by the time these tours actually run.

  • Bank Fees: We do not charge bank fees for wire transfers for clients paying into our accounts in the United States, the United Kingdom, and/or Canada.

  • Note on Meal Inclusion: Meals include three meals per day during any full day of the trip. The arrival day does include lunch and supper, as most flights arrive in the morning. The departure day includes only breakfast, as most flights leave in the morning.

  • Note on Beverage Inclusion: Most of our meals are provided by the lodges, and we follow their practices in providing beverages at meal time. Most beverages are your choice and are an additional expense that you pay to the restaurant directly. We provide water at the table for supper. We also provide bottled water during the birding day. 

  • Group Size: We anticipate a group of 7 participants, and pricing is based on this group size.


Optional Costs for Booking the Trip:


Single Room Supplement: 

ZAR 15,500 ($846 USD*, or £663 GBP*) for 2023 and 2024

Is the price we charge for the additional cost of anyone not sharing a room with another birder (and/or a spouse). If you want a single room, please let us know. We are often able to find a roommate for those wanting to share a room with a person of the same sex.


Pre-Paid Tipping for Meals/Lodging: Gratuities for drivers, hotel staff, restaurants, etc. are included on this tour. However, this does not include your trip leader/bird guide. If therefore, you feel that he/she has given you excellent service, it is entirely appropriate to tip him/her.


Notes on Other Tour Costs: Exclusions: 

  • You will need to pay for any flight costs involved in this trip. 

    • This will include flights to the city at the start of the trip (either Windhoek in Namibia or Livingstone in Zambia) and then your return flight at the end of the trip. Trips rotate starting points and ending points. Half the trips start in Windhoek and end in Livingstone. And the other half of the trips start in Livingstone and end in Windhoek. As most clients fly to Johannesburg in South Africa first, these flights end up costing about the same. If this is confusing, please contact us, as we are always glad to provide free advice on minimizing your flight cost.

  • The tour fee does not include taxes/fees for entering or exiting these countries, telephone calls, laundry, and other items of a personal nature.

  • Tips for birding guides are not included in the tour price.
