Birdwatching at Daku Resort offers the opportunity to see a number of tropical birds in their natural habitat. Our island, Vanua Levu, is home to a large number of birds, including the rare silktail which is found in the eastern end of the island.

You can choose to join one of our fully organised birdwatching weeks with bird expert Phil Gregory (http://paradisecourses.com/birdwatching-tours-fiji/) or you can ask us to put together individual birdwatching excursions to places where certain species can be found. Keni Tadulala, one of our staff members, will accompany you. Keni is an excellent bird spotter although he is not a qualified expert on the bird life, so please don’t expect deep knowledge from him.

The excursions are to areas noted for particular birds, and we’ll also walk around the extensive land of Daku Resort itself. As well as many more common Fijian birds such as the reef heron, the kingfisher, the shrikebill and the honey eater, we will set out to see the orange dove and the silktail, both of which are to be found on our island. In fact, the orange dove has been spotted on the estate of Daku Resort itself. A reasonable degree of fitness is required if you are to access all the sites; the two areas where the silktail and the orange dove are found are steep and difficult. We  set out early on most days.

This is a 4 day programme ; the days can be taken all together, or you can space them out over a week or more. Please check with us first as to whether we can run the excursions on the days you want.
