Birding in Morocco
There is no doubt; Morocco is an accessible and exciting destination for birdwatching! Direct flights from most major airports throughout Europe make getting there easy and inexpensive. Birding in this exotic country is rewarding and an experience, with several prime species not present in Europe. We are veteran tour leaders here having led almost 20 tours for birdwatching holidays throughout Morocco, so our experience can lead you to areas discovered by us and produce such species as Desert Sparrow, Cream-coloured Courser and Brown-necked Raven. We travel the coastal areas during the autumn and in the spring we go on safari, travelling across the High Atlas to the deeper regions of the Sahara Desert, migrating birds join other great species during both seasons and we have a good record for finding such sought after species as Blue-cheeked Bee eater, Bald Ibis, Houbara Bustard, Egyptian Nightjar and of course many lark species including our favourite Hoopoe Lark. Of course we also do short break holidays on the Atlantic Coast of Morocco and these can be convenient for those wishing to combine Spain with this African destination.
Our safari tour, during the spring, offers great birding, incredible landscapes and a holiday with a real difference. For birdwatching in Morocco, this tour is an absolute must join trip to experience the very best birding Morocco has to offer. We travel through many stunning scenic routes and of course see the ‘real’ Morocco and people as well as the birds. South of the High and Anti-Atlas mountain ranges lies the area of Saharan Morocco. The landscape here is varied and beautiful, not at all what one might expect whilst imagining an endless desert plain! The desert areas are largely pebble, but are interspersed by river courses whose green palms and gardens contrast with their surroundings. The sand deserts, more in keeping with our own imaginings of desert, are found in the areas of Mhamid in the extreme south of the Draa Valley and to the east close to Merzouga (Erg Chebbi). Why not join us?
A wonderful opportunity to enjoy both the bird migrating and rare breeding birds in Morocco. This bird watching tour has been especially tailored to take in some of the rarest birds in Morocco, whilst also timed to allow our fellow travellers to view autumn bird migration where ‘anything’ might turn-up. We also visit one of the largest breeding colonies in the world for Eleonora’s Falcon! From the fabulous old city of Marrakech to the Atlantic coast we will journey into the Anti Atlas Mountains and also stay in the southern deserts. The scenery alone is worth joining this birding tour for. Our usual high standard for accommodation applies and we have carefully selected restaurants and transport. Our journey allows us to take our time and we have selected some of our hotels specifically, not only for their comfort, but also their location. At 3 of these hotels we will spend 2 consecutive nights giving time for relaxation and enjoying their superb locations, these longer stays also give opportunities for individuals to miss touring with the group and do their own thing. Truly special Birding Holiday for those who also want comfort and time to relax! Bird Migration and rare breeding birds.
