Kenya Birding Tour Special

At a glance
This is a Special offer valid from 15 April – 30 June 2021.

When you think of the classic African safari scene, with Acacia trees dotted all over a grassy landscape, with wildebeest moving in their thousands and predators following closely behind, you are probably thinking of Kenya.But the fantastic east African country has even more to offer than that! There is so much to do here that no two visits are ever the same. Pick from wildlife viewing, cultural experiences, beach holidays, forest treks, mountain climbing and more. Magical Kenya indeed!

Luckily for us it is also one of the best African birding destinations, with the country’s incredibly varied geography and habitats the reason for over 1,100 species having been recorded!

This special 10 day Kenya birding tour will visit the most important locations in the country, ensuring a high species count, and more importantly, focusing on the species that are endemic, near-endemic, or ones not easily seen anywhere else. This tour is jam-packed with stunning and varied landscapes, Big Five sightings, great food, classic African safari scenery and of course, fantastic birdwatching. Let’s go birding!
