Kenya has one of the richest avifaunas in Africa with around 1090 bird species recorded. At least eight of these are national endemics. Around 170 species of Kenya’s birds species are Pale arctic migrants (11 species of them with a local breeding population too), mainly from eastern Europe, Russia, the middle East and Siberia. Another 60 species migrate regularly within the Afro tropics or from Madagascar. Some 335 species are found in forest; 230 species are entirely forest dependent and 110 species are “forest specialists” requiring intact, undisturbed habitat and Forty species of global conservation concern are known to occur in Kenya. Four of these are critically Endangered, two Endangered and 16 species are Vulnerable.
Kenya! This is truly one of the planet’s most exciting countries for birds as well as for big game (along with all the small mammals, of course). On a three-week Kenya birding tour, you can see 550 to 750 bird species (we usually don’t race, and we like to spend adequate time with each species, so we don’t try to pad our list with lots of “glimpse only” or “heard only” birds, but we usually do see well over 600 bird species).
Kenya Birding Watching Tours Packages
Habitats change rapidly in Kenya. Everything is so compact, and in the course of a single morning you can find yourself birding in a semi-arid area inhabited by African megafauna, bustards and more, in an evergreen Afro-montane Forest with the scarlet wings of an otherwise mainly bright green turaco adding vivid color to the scene, and in a chilly highland grassland looking for Sharpe’s Longclaw and Aberdare Cisticola. From Kakamega Forest (one of Africa’s most legendary birding forests, where Turner’s Eremomela, beautiful wattle-eyes, Great Blue Turaco and possibly even (African) Grey Parrot (although this is much more easily seen on our West African bird tours), to the hyper-saline, flamingo-filled Great Rift Valley Lakes such as Lake Naivasha with the famous Elsamere Conservation Centre and Elsamere Lodge on its banks, Lake Nakuru, Lake Baringo, Lake Bogoria, and the others, you’ll see birds, birds, and more birds in incredible Kenya!
Kenya offers Africa in a nutshell, from the soda-encrusted, flamingo-filled Rift Valley lakes to alpine Mt. Kenya and the western lowland forests at Kakamega. These habitats, combined with bird-rich savannas, Tsavo’s semi-deserts, Sokoke’s coastal forests, and of course, the parks that make it the world’s premier big mammal watching destination, make Kenya a perennial favorite in Africa. This is not surprising when you consider you will probably see more bird and mammal species than any other African tour.
