There are over 430 species of birds found in
Egypt with about 150 being resident. The
others are annual visitors from Europe and Asia
with the primary migrations south in the fall and
the return in the spring months. In conjunction
with Conservation Outdoors Inc. (an international
wildlife and habitat conservation group) we have
chosen the peaks of these migrations to afford
birders a vacation with the maximum chance to view
and photograph the widest variety possible.
WHEN TO VISIT: In spring, during March and
April, and between September and December.
WHERE TO WATCH BIRDS: There are a number of
habitats in Egypt that are especially
suitable for birds, including: the Nile River
Valley, but many others as well. There are
approximately 150 resident breeding bird species
in Egypt. They are mostly song and water
birds confined to the Nile Valley, the Delta and
to some of the western Oases.
Birding tours can be combined with any
other kind of tours, such as classical tour, Nile
cruise, safari etc. We can tailor your itinerary
as per your request.
