Calling all birdwatching enthusiasts!
Calling all birdwatching enthusiasts! This wildlife-spotting holiday has been especially designed with our feathered friends in mind. Kenya’s Great Rift Valley is renowned for its biodiversity and with over 400 species of bird known to frequent its skies, this one of the best places in the country to enjoy a successful birdwatching holiday.
Whether you are an experienced bird watcher or you are just starting out, the places you’ll visit on this trip have been selected for the reputation and abundance of birdlife. Viewing opportunities here are perfect for all abilities. You can spend time in some of Kenya’s smallest national parks with an intimate group to spot flamingos and watch for an array of heron, stork and egret from your boat on Lake Naivasha.
One of the things that makes this carefully crafted trip unique is the way in which your holiday will end, always save the best till last! After all the excitement of exploring one of Kenya’s best birdwatching regions, we will then venture into the heart of the Masai Mara to come face-to-face with some of Africa’s larger characters. You will spend three nights at a comfortable tented safari camp in the Masai Mara National Park, where you’ll set off on game drives and explore the wild plains with bush guides.
