The Naturalist Collection

Sharing the wonders of the natural world


Batis Birding Safaris

These safaris are designed specifically with birdwatchers in mind! But we wish to stress that our tours offer far more than just birding. We offer guided and self-drive tours throughout Namibia, as well as guided tours to Angola, Madagascar, Uganda and Ethiopia.

Our aim is not to only cater for the real twitcher, but also for beginner birders as well as the general layman who would like to learn more about this fascinating hobby.
