Presentations on the birding in Botswana

Botswana is one of last remaining wild places on earth and home to 550 species of birds. Peter Durkin, master falconer, author, and tour guide, provides an insightful talk about the country, its many birds and other fauna, its landscapes, and its unique cultures. The talk and accompanying PowerPoint presentation will show many of the beautiful and varied birds of Botswana, and provide details on the many National Parks, Game Reserves, and other wild areas.

About the size of Texas, Botswana is dominated by three geographical features: the Kalahari Desert, the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans, and the Okavango Delta. The Kalahari is awe-inspiring in its open expanses of grasslands and bush, home to many raptors, and provides stunning sunsets of unbelievable colors. The shimmering Makgadikgadi Pans are host to thousands of waterbirds after the rains and are peppered with huge ancient Baobab tree, thousands of years old. The Okavango Delta is the heart of the largest Ramsar designated wetlands and the home of the last and greatest concentration of wild animals on earth. If you have any interest in visiting Africa or just want to learn about an amazing natural wonder come and hear a first hand account of these places.

The dynamic interactive talk is accompanied by a PowerPoint presentation and fascinating artifacts including a bushman hunting kit, genuine handicrafts and much more. For more information, please contact Peter
