The ultimate birding safari in Kenya including Lakes Naivasha, Nakuru, Baringo, Bogoria and Kakamega Forest, with opportunities to see vast flocks of flamingoes as well as hundreds of species of other birds at Kenya's top birding sites.

This will not only be a specialised birding safari, but will also offer you opportunities for sightseeing and watching and photographing other wildlife. You will be able to see the stunning countryside including a breath-taking view of the Rift Valley dropping thousands of feet. En route to several destinations, you will also have a chance to see the different local tribes and observe their way of living.

We will be staying in 5 star accommodation with comfortable transport between destinations by minibus.

The maximum number of guests is 4 per trip.This are window guranteed seats .At the various destinations we may split the group into smaller numbers for better viewing and here will use resident guides who have vast knowledge of the local areas. All selected destinations are Kenya’s IBAs (Important Bird Areas)

Francolin

Day 2
0630hrs: Early breakfast and set off to the lake with picnic lunch

LAKE NAKURU
Undoubtedly, this park is a must-visit destination for birders. Flocks of both lesser and greater flamingoes sometimes numbering 1.5 million can be seen here together with almost 450 other species. The park was gazetted as a bird sanctuary in 1960. A species of fish (oreochromis alcalicus platensis) was introduced at that time to curb mosquitoes, but in turn supported a number of secondary consumers mostly birds. This lake is a transient home to a large number of Palearctic waders who use it on passage or winter.
The lake is not only for birders, because it is a national park, there are other larger animals including the black and the white rhinoceros, Rothschild giraffe, water bucks, leopard, lion, buffalo etc. This park therefore will serve all purpose for both birds and big game. There is no better place in Kenya to watch white rhinos.

This is a well known destination for birdwatchers and over 500 species have been recorded. A colony of 20 Goliath herons have nested on one of the Islands in the lake. While the diversity of water birds is considerable, total numbers are usually in low thousands. Species of global conservation concern include lesser kestrel (a passage migrant in small flocks) lesser flamingo, Madagascar squacco heron, pallid harrier etc. This lake is also a home to the fish eagle.

Two globally threatened species occur, Chapin’s fly catcher and Turners Eremomela. The 194 Kakamega Forestforest dependent bird species (the highest total for any Kenyan forests) include 40 of Kenya’s 43 Guinea-Congo forests biome species, as well as 33 of Kenya’s 67 Afro tropical Highlands biome species.
