Birding around Hondo Hondo

Just walking around the camp, and the surrounding fields you can see many species of birds, several endemic to the area.   We have compiled a bird checklist with the help of visiting ornithologists and you will find this is the information pack in your room and at the bar or reception.  When you go for a stroll around, you can take this with you and see how many you can spot – and if you can add to the list!

Birding is popular with many visitors and you have a variety of habitats to explore.  Up in the Udzungwa National Park there is the forest itself and associated species; around the camp you can investigate the forest edge and the paddy fields; and out on the Kilombero Valley floor you will find the sugar cane plantation home to many many more.

Please see here a couple of links to blogs written by birders who have visited Hondo Hondo and loved it.  Do let us know if you would like us to feature your own log on our website!
