Bird Watching



East Africa is one of the richest bird areas in the world. With a wealth of different habitats, often close to each other, it's quite easy to spot over 100 species in one day.

Although many of the birds are brightly colored and exotic looking, they are generally quite easily recognized; within a day or two you will be identifying the various species with ease! Their main habitats include water, open plains, woodlands and farmlands.

On or near water, you will find bright pink flamingos, hammer kops, iridescent kingfishers, plovers, herons, storks, geese, cranes, jacanas and of course the magnificent African fish eagle.

Kenya is ranked among the leading countries with about 1090 species of birds. All over the world, bird-watching is a fast-growing hobby.
