The International Waterbird Census, which is facilitated each year by Wetlands International across 143 different countries, took place from the 12th to 13th January 2019.

Central African Wilderness Safaris once again participated in the annual account from their base at Mvuu Camp and Mvuu Lodge in Liwonde National Park. It was an excellent opportunity for avid birders to explore one of Malawi’s top birding hotspots as well as be part of this exciting initiative.

The event kicked off with a briefing and presentation by Dr. John Wilson, Malawi’s foremost environmental scientist, who later participated in the count alongside Mvuu guides and guests. Over the course of the special birding weekend, sightings of a total 1030 birds belonging to 39 different species were recorded.
