The wealth of birdlife in Mozambique is stunning. The varying habitats to be found, particularly those in central Mozambique, account for rich variety of bird life- more than 900 species have been recorded.

Benguerra Island alone is home to115 different types including the rare crab plover, olive bee-eater and green coucal. Inhaca Island, with its flocks of flamingos and pelicans is also excellent for birding as are lake Chicamba, with its waders and water-birds, and the mountains of Namuli.
