Ornithological Walks

Discover the diversity of African birdlife

Ornithological Walk

With over 1,070 species of birds, Kenya has the second highest country bird list in Africa, while the area around Tsavo West boats 600 recorded species. Ranging from giant herons to tiny sunbirds,  the diversity of African birdlife is startling in its colour  and  vibrancy.  Additionally, the Lions Bluff area boasts a number of endemic  species,  such as the globally threatened Taita Thrush, Taita Apalis, Abbotts starling and the Southern banded Snake Eagle. Also seen are the Martial Eagle, Taita Shrike and Black Shouldered Kite and the Taita White Eye, indigenous to this area.  Highlights of  the birdlife include those of the semiarid  zone, such as ostrich and Golden  Pipit, while perhaps the most conspicuous are the White headed buffalo weaver and the brilliantly-plumaged golden  breasted starling. Raucous  hornbills  are  also prevalent as are such hole nesting birds as parrot, barber and roller. During the winter  months in  Europe,  we  do  receive   migratory birds.  For  the amateur and serious ornithologist alike, we offer a range  of half or full day outings which can be custom tailored to the interests of your ornithological party. The services of a professional ranger and up-to-date bird check lists are  included.  Picnic bush  lunch and  sundowners can be scheduled to suit your needs. Binoculars are available for use.
