Birds of Southern Africa

This list includes residents and migrants, as well as vagrants and invasive aliens. This list concentrates particularly on those birds found in Namibia, Botswana and Zimbabwe and not specifically to the birds found in Chobe National Park. Over time, we hope to create a link between these names and any reference or photo of these birds within www.ChobeSafari.com.
