December - Bird-watching, Senegal
For a winter getaway with a difference, travel to the vast wetlands of Senegal’s Djoudj National Park. As a popular water stop for migratory birds flying over the Sahara desert, the park is widely regarded as one of the most important bird reserves in the world. Cruise along a labyrinth of thriving waterways leading from the Senegal River and look out for large flocks of pelican ducking and diving in perfect formation. We also hope to see heron, white-breasted cormorant, Egyptian geese and West African fish eagles.
