Trip Info

Kenya is a prime destination for a bird watching holiday at any time of year. The Tremendous geographical range gives Kenya a variety of climates and landscapes, hence the second highest number of species in Africa. Kenya holds the world-record ‘bird watch’ – with 342 species seen in 24 hours! Between October and February, many Palearctic migrants come to Kenya’s marine and inland shorelines. Many swallows, terns, and waders will be found during this time; whilst between June and July weavers and bishops are in breeding plumage and many Southern African migrants visit. Kenya’s national parks make excellent centers for bird watching in Kenya – the Maasai Mara for the rosy-throated longclaw and magpie shrike. This diverse range of habitats supports a great diversity of bird species – and makes a bird watching holiday in Kenya very rewarding!
