If you are visiting Botswana for the first time you will have heard about all the big game and wonderful landscapes, but what about the birds! Here are the 'Big 5' birds that you should look out for in the Okavango, among the many hundreds of species!




Africa's second-largest owl, russet coloured with black spotted wings - there are only around 100 pairs of that live in and around the Okavango Delta, so it is a rare gem! They like to perch high up on branches over lagoons and are most vocal at dawn.
