The Pemba Island Endemics Birding Tour can be combined with our Tanzania Birding Tour or the Southern Tanzania Birding Tour.

 

DAY 1: TRAVEL TO PEMBA ISLAND

To begin your Pemba Island Endemics Birding Tour, you will travel to Pemba; where your flight will land.

Pemba is a beautiful part of Tanzania, and much quieter than the sister island of Zanzibar (Unguja)- located farther South.

In the evening, we shall visit a site for the endemic Pemba Scops-Owl.

Night in Pemba.

DAY 2: BIRDING PEMBA ISLAND

A visit to Ngezi Forest (home of the rare Pemba Flying Fox) will provide us with some great birding. Our key target here is the endemic Pemba Green Pigeon; a highlight on our Pemba Island Endemics Birding Tour.

We shall also bird other parts of the island, including the clove farms and the sandy beaches. Other Tanzanian endemics we shall be looking forward to see include the Pemba Sunbird and Pemba White-eye.

This evening, we have another chance to try for the Pemba Scops-Owl, if we missed it earlier.

Night in Pemba.
