Kenya Birding Tour

Package Duration
18 Days / 17 Nights
Destination Covered
Nairobi - Masai Mara

  • Day 1 : Nairobi

    Description :

    Arrive at Nairobi. Reception at the Jomo Kenyatta airport by Acacia Africa Birding Safari representative and transfer to the Holiday Inn or equivalent hotel.

    Day 2 : Nairobi National Park

    • Nairobi National Park

    Description :

    A day to relax and wear off jet lag but not without an introduction to Kenyan birds. A walk in the vast garden of our hotel (66 acres) will give our first count of African birds: Northern Pied Babbler, Holub's Golden Weaver, Speckled Mousebird, Dusky Turtle Dove and numerous sunbirds. After breakfast we cross over (by bus) to the Nairobi National Park , which despite being only a few kilometers from the city is a home to big game. In its open grasslands scattered with acacia trees we will see the first game like gazelles, zebras, giraffes and maybe some of the cats. If the season is right, the wildebeest that migrates from Tanzania through Masai Mara will also be there. This afternoon we will see Ostrich, Secretary Bird, Crowned Crane, vultures, Cattle and Great Egrets, Tawny Eagle, and a herd of Buffaloes should provide Red-billed Oxpeckers perched on their backs. Black Kite, Marabou Stork, Pied Crow and African Palm Swift are also seen in the park. A walk around the hippo pools should give us our first sighting of the Nile Crocodile and Helmeted Guineafowl. In the Yellow-backed Acacia, look out for Grey Crowned Crane, Red-throated Tit and Chestnut-banded Plover. At the picnic site baboons will quickly assemble on our arrival and just as quick they will easily walk away with a lunch box. The Agama Rock Lizard is common here. Overnight Holiday Inn or equivalent hotel.

    Day 3 : Amboseli - Ol Tukai Lodge

    • Amboseli National Park
    • Population

    Description :

    After breakfast we head south-east of Nairobi towards Amboseli National Park . On the road we have the chance to see Kori Bustard, Hoopoe, Pale Chanting Goshawk and the very common Augur Buzzard that feels comfortable perched on telephone posts along the road. Amboseli is at the foot of Mount Kilimanjaro and has the advantage of having many swamps that are fed by underground rivers coming from the mountain. This attracts a large population of water birds like African Jacana, Red-knobbed Coot, Egyptian Goose and a wide range of herons and egrets. With 425 species of birds, our two days here should be able to give us a chance to see vultures, eagles, bustards, sandgrouse, Ground Hornbills, Rosy-breasted Longclaw, Sooty Chat, falcons, Barn Owl, Spotted Redshank, Temminck's Stint, Saddle-billed Stork and the hyperactive Black Crake.
    In the plains and the scrublands we should be on the look out for Go-away-birds, and a variety of Larks: Red-capped, Rufous-naped and Short-toed that are common in Amboseli. The magic of Amboseli is seeing the big game including the elephant, lion, leopard, cheetah, impala, Grants Gazelle and Eland with the backdrop of the snow capped Kilimanjaro. This is a place for great photos justifying our trip as a photography safari. Overnights at the Ol Tukai Lodge.
