Caju Afrique, situated within central Mozambique, offers highly sought after Sand Forest birding. The small and comfortable lodge accommodation lies on the edge of a large lake and has numerous trails cutting through the dense vegetation, easing bird watching and photography opportunities.
Dawn is filled with the chorus of countless bird species including the beautiful Gorgeous Bush Shrike and Purple-Crested and Livingston’s Turaco’s. The Sand Forest is home to Pink-throated Twinspot and Tambourine Dove while Wood Owls may be heard calling at night. In addition, sunbirds abound with Amethyst, Plain-backed, Purple-banded, Collared and Scarlet-chested sunbirds all occurring. Over the lake, African Fish Eagles are common together with herons, egrets, storks, Grey-headed Gulls, Whiskered Terns and Pink-Backed and Great White Pelicans.
