A perfect birding safari holidays in Kenya for both birdlife & wildlife including; Cape buffalo, leopard, zebra, eland, waterbuck and lion

Birdwatching is rewarding everywhere in Kenya. For dedicated birdwatchers, a well-planned two-week itinerary is likely to result in a trip list of 350–400 species, a figure that compares favourably with anywhere in the world. Kenya offers excellent birdwatching throughout the year, but the prime season runs from October to March, when resident populations are boosted by Palaearctic migrants. This also broadly coincides with Kenya’s rainy season, when several resident species shed their drab eclipse plumage in favour of bright breeding colours.
