Shoebill Safari

In search of the Shoebill

Want to see a Shoebill?  This is your safari.

Join Jacob Shawa (or another highly qualified Robin Pope Safaris guide) for this exceptional trip covering the South Luangwa, Kasanka and Bangweulu swamps. On the hunt for the remarkable Shoebill Stork, you will also encounter elephants, lions, giraffes, and host of other species.  This is an exceptional 6 night safari combining South Luangwa National Park, Kasanka National Park and Bangweulu Swamps.

After a couple of nights at Nkwali in the South Luangwa you will fly to Kasanka where there are many bird species that will be new to the safari and the sitatunga will certainly been seen at the swamp. Then the safari will continue onto Bangweulu Swamps, which remains one of Zambia special gems - with superb birding from all the water birds to the endangered wattled crane elegantly strolling around the plains. Of course the star attraction remains the extraordinary shoebill.  At this time of year it is virtually a sure sighting. The area also hosts the endemic black lechwe along with tsessebe and buffalo.
