‘Bird Safari’ on Lake Diluti, Arusha

Tristan's Expeditions

Most safaris in Tanzania are focused on the ‘Big 5’: Lion, Leopard, Elephant, Rhino and Buffalo. Just outside of Arusha, Lake Diluti offers a quiet and relaxing ‘bird safari’ which is a great way to get a taste of the adventure before the big expedition, or after, in case you didn’t get your fill. Tanzania is home to over 1,000 species of birds, many of which you won’t see in the arid Serengeti.

I had recently purchased a new camera for my safari, and decided to test it out here before my 5-day trip North. Birds are, and I’m not sure why I didn’t think of this before, a lot faster and unpredictable than elephants…so these photos are not ‘professional’ quality. But it was a great learning experience nonetheless.

Still, I wanted to share them anyway because I love birds, and if you’re reading this, you probably do too.
