Our Tunisia birding tour takes us to several spectacular sites, ranging from towering mountains, desert oases and vast tidal saltpans, in search of a host of very special resident and migratory birds. Some of the highlight species we will be targeting are the endangered White-headed and Marbled Duck, Yelkouan Shearwater, Bonelli’s Eagle, Cream-colored Courser, Greater Hoopoe-Lark and Desert Sparrow.
We will also have the opportunity to observe some really endangered North African mammals, including the spectacular Addax, Scimitar-horned Oryx, Dama and Dorcas Gazelle, the bizarre but beautiful Jerboa, and the cute, hamster-like Gundi.
Obviously, we cannot ignore Tunisia’s archaeological treasures, and we will also visit several world-famous and amazing sites, including the Punic City of Carthage, the Roman Empire’s 3rd largest Coliseum, and ancient Muslim medinas (walled cities). With comfortable accommodations, great food, friendly people, impressive antiquities and abundant birds, time spent in Tunisia could not be more pleasurable!
