Nothing is more rewarding like encountering a group helmet’s shrikes on any birding trip in Kenya, they are beautiful birds with their unique crest signature mark. In Kenya, you can find four species of group; White-crested, Grey-crested, Chestnut-fronted and Retz’s Helmetshrike. Most of this species are gregarious and fly around in a group of 6 to around 50 individuals. More still, many species are always nesting during this period as it coincides with the breeding season. The spectacular Jackson’s widowbird is often seen from March to May.

This is a very exciting and also very comfortable holiday, featuring unforgettable wildlife and excellent supporting services. With an experienced Guide supported by top quality local guides, a carefully researched and planned itinerary, substantial, comfortable vehicles where everyone has a window seat, and excellent hotels and food throughout, we think this is the ideal Kenyan safari adventure both for birders and those with a general interest in African wildlife.

    The most productive of all of the Great Rift Valley lakes and at a size of 139 km², Lake Naivasha is a vital life source for not only the huge amount of wildlife but for the many people that call this beautiful lake home. Lake Naivasha has been providing people a decent living for thousands of years, where originally the lake and the surrounding land was owned by the Masai tribe; and in fact the actually name of Naivasha is derived from the Masai word for ‘rough waters’.

    ​The best part about the lake though, is of course, the abundance of birds! The high productivity of lake allows many bird species to thrive here, with over 300 species recorded. Join us on an unforgettable Birding Tour at the beautiful Lake Naivasha!
