CAWS hosted a fantastic green season birding weekend at Mvuu Camp & Lodge recently.

Last month, Central African Wilderness Safaris hosted a green season birding weekend at Mvuu Camp and Lodge, where an array of birding safaris were conducted to locate the numerous bird species that inhabit Liwonde National Park during the rains. During the much-loved green season, Liwonde National Park is teeming with life, and guests visiting the park can expect to enjoy an endless series of bird sightings.

With the help of CAWS’ well-trained guides, many avid birders, nature lovers and wildlife enthusiasts participated in the birding weekend and were able to tick off a wide variety of both resident and migrant bird species from their checklists. Over the course of the birding weekend, a total of 130 bird species were collectively recorded by CAWS guides and guests.
