We are set apart from other bird guide tours with a unique learning experience on our nature adventures. You will learn not only the names but also about the history, migration and behaviours of the species.
This three-day tour begins with a visit to the Nairobi National Park. The oldest park in Kenya, this region has more than 500 recorded bird species. You will be guided through woodlands, riversides, open grasslands, gorges and wetlands. Some of the birds you will encounter include the Masaai Ostrich, Harlequin Quail, Pygmy Falcon, African Finfoot and the Great Painted Snipe. Enjoy a traditional local supper and stay overnight at the Wildebeest Camp.
In the morning, we will cover the Magadi Road with several stops. The first visit will be to Corner Baridi where you can spot the Tawny Eagle flying over the valley. Keep an eye out for the Lynes’ Cisticola near the Euclea bushes. As you enter the Icross area, perhaps a Southern Grosbeak Canary will make an appearance. Stopping at the River Bridge section, we will search for the Laughing Dove and the Eastern Violet Backed Sunbird. As we continue and the sun becomes hotter, a picnic stop at a pre-historic site will be a welcoming detour. At the River Bed area, you will find among the trees the Black Throated Barbet along with the Abyssinian Scimitarbill. Share your findings with others as you are treated to supper and overnight back at the camp.
As we leave the park, you will have spectacular views passing through Tea plantations and grasslands. Listen to the sweet sounds of the Common Stonechat. A tour through the Gatamaiyu Forest will give you an opportunity to see the Lemon Dove, Hunter’s Cisticola, Crowned Hornbill and the Grey Cuckooshrike, to name a few.
