olive bee eaters

conservation: 04 May 2016


Our olive bee-eaters are due to come back in September. These little birds are uncommon in Mozambique so we are particularly privileged to have one of the largest breeding colonies in Southern Africa located near The Sanctuary´s office. At certain times of the day, particularly during the evening and the early morning, listen for the sound of the rapid twittering, then look skywards and you´ll see hundreds of our special visitors wheeling around or hawking insects. The Sanctuary boasts a total of six species of bee-eater including the very colorful Southern Carmine Bee-eater.
