Birds have over the centuries delighted people of all generations from across the world mainly because of their flight power and their beauty. Historically, birds have been considered as omens. In Africa for example, it is still believed that the calls as well as their flights foretell the future. Here are some great reasons why you should join the hundreds of bird watching holiday Africa enthusiasts next time you visit the continent.
- Fun. You get some deep satisfaction and a connection is made between your inner man and the beauty of Mother Nature.
- Health. Most East African safaris involve some bit of walking in the wild. Bird watching is no exception; you will get a taste of the raw, fresh jungle air-pollution free!
- Companionship. One of the things visitors note in the gorilla safaris Uganda expeditions they take is how some bird species and gorillas seem to get along. Some visitors say that the companionship of these animals inspires their own companionship as it gets strangers talking about the bird-gorilla relationship. Birders meeting for the first time during the gorilla treks love to share the new stuff they learn.
So there you have it, the three main reasons why bird watching is a must-do activity during your safari holiday.
