Zambia's key bird & biodiversity areas

 

Zambia has many key birding areas. On below map you'll see 51 indicated, including all 42 Important Bird Areas and 21 National Parks. 

We aim to soon provide a detailed description of all these areas, including details of community guides and operators, scheduled tours and tailored packages. For now, we refer you to the well-written Important Bird Areas by Pete Leonard (2005). This book is no longer in print but Pete, BirdWatch Zambia and Birding Zambia offer you a free download from the Resources page of this website.

Please contact us to organize a visit to any of these areas.
