About this trip

Located in southwestern Africa, Namibia boasts a well-developed infrastructure, some of the best tourist facilities in Africa, and an impressive list of breathtaking natural wonders. Visitors can explore the capital of Windhoek and discover the lovely coastal town of Swakopmund boasting remnants of the country’s German influence, reflected in the architecture, culture, cuisine and the annual Oktoberfest celebrations. To properly appreciate this extraordinary country, you will have to venture out of the cities to explore the remarkable natural landscapes Namibia has to offer. These include: the impressive Fish River Canyon; the vast Etosha National Park teeming with abundant wildlife, such as lions, desert-adapted elephants and the Hartmann's Mountain Zebra; the hauntingly beautiful Kalahari Desert; and of course the Namib Desert stretching for over 2000 km along the magnificent Atlantic Coast. Namibia is an ideal destination for travelers seeking an unforgettable African experience in a uniquely beautiful untamed wilderness.

We are a connector for all birders where they will feel part of a community, interact with fellow birders, and make fulfilling relationships with each other and nature. We provide resources to our members and the birding community at large on our website, through our print publications, our podcast, in-person events, festivals, and tours, partnerships, and ABA Community network. Wherever you find birders, you’ll find ABA.


This was a great trip! We had so much fun and saw gorgeous birds. The weather was perfect in the mountains, the scenery was beautiful. Jake Thompson - our bird guide - was smart, knowledgeable, indefatigable in his search for birds. He has energy! Our organizer, Katinka, was great. Kind and smart and organized,. The artist - Christina Baal was excellent. She had ALL of us (skeptics that we were ) sitting and drawing Burrowing Owls and painting other birds. It was surprisingly fun. Very good at getting us all engaged. Five stars!
