Birdwatching is rewarding everywhere in Kenya. For dedicated birdwatchers, a well-planned two-week itinerary is likely to result in a trip list of 350–400 species, a figure that compares favorably with anywhere in the world. Kenya offers excellent birdwatching throughout the year, but the prime season runs from October to March, when resident populations are boosted by Palaearctic migrants.
This also broadly coincides with Kenya’s rainy season, when several resident species shed their drab eclipse plumage in favor of bright breeding colors. From soda lakes to fresh water wetlands – to high altitude and low altitude grasslands, bush and standard savannah to ancient woodland habitats – you will see incredible birdlife as well as other taxa of animals and plants. Big game will be encountered in plenty, including many rare and unique species. This tour has the intention of making you fall in love with Kenya just like we all have – a truly once in a lifetime birding experience that will leave your heart in Africa!
Kenya is one of only 15 countries globally where more than 1,000 bird species have been recorded, and it lies third on the African avian diversity list after DR Congo and Tanzania. This list includes the world’s two largest birds (common and Somali ostrich, now regarded as separate species) and its bulkiest flying creature (Kori bustard), along with a wealth of raptors and a dazzling array of colorful bee-eaters, turacos, parrots, rollers and passerines.
ACCOMMODATION: Very good to excellent (some of the lodges are truly superb), all have private en-suite bathrooms, and full-time hot water. Electricity is available everywhere 24 hours a day. Internet is fairly widespread, but not available everywhere.
