Birding Weekend 7-9 October 2016

You are most welcome to our stunningly located Ntchisi Forest Lodge for a few days of diving into the rich bird life of the Ntchisi Forest Reserve.

Birds that can be found amongst many others include the bar tailed trogon, the louribird, olive headed weaver as well as the pale billed hornbill, stripe cheeked greenbul and the orange ground thrush.

The Birding Weekend is in collaboration with WESM and will be led by Ken Longden, David Yekutiel and Edward Maferano, all great bird experts and enthusiasts. With the bird counts that will be done during the weekend, scientific knowledge will be gained and we will get specific input for bird conservation. You can be part of this!

Besides the birding, you can indulge in delicious home cooked meals every day.  Our hosts Eduard and Maaike and the team will welcome you and make sure you will have a wonderful stay!  The weekend will start on Friday evening 7th of  October, and will end on Sunday 9th of October early afternoon.
