The start of 16 Days Kenya Birding Safari Tour Adventures

It is not unusual for birding trips to record 300-600 different varieties on a short trip or to record more than 120 at a particular site on a single day! Our bird watching safari itineraries are best suited for birders seeking a slow but detailed tour that gives the very best of the Kenyan bird life in a very relaxed atmosphere. We have carefully selected the IBAs (Important Biodiversity Areas) and with a minimum of 2 to 3 night stays in every location, you will have quality time devoted to birding instead of spending long hours on on long road transfers – and this is what makes our birding tours different. Our guides and leaders are competent ornithologists and passionate birders who spend most of their time on birding safaris in Kenya.
