Bird watching is rewarding everywhere in Kenya.

    Late November and early December are fantastic months in Kenya as the reserves are quieter with fewer tourists. It is also the season when a lot of migrant birds return to Kenya so the already impressive local bird count is boosted even further. Kenya’s bird count is over 1000 species. The aim of this Birding Safari, is to gather an impressive collection of photographs that show the diversity of Kenya’s Birdlife. All four locations on the safari will offer fantastic opportunities in very different habitats, and therefore an excellent variety of species. This photo safari will be led by my good friend and excellent bird guide and photographer.
