Kenya Bird Watching Safari
The forest offers a phenomenal ornithological safari in Kenya. Birding International notes the forest as the second most important of all of Africa’s forest for avi-fauna conservation. Of the over 230 recorded species, nine are considered globally threatened, including the black and yellow clarke’s weaver, sokoke scops-owl and the multi-colored east coast akalat, to name only some of the endangered species in the forest. Common species include eastern green tinkerbirds, scaly babbler, green-headed orioles, violet-breasted and mouse-colored sunbirds and many, many more. North of Mount Kilimanjaro is Amboseli National Park that is surrounded by a few private conservancies. These areas serve to extend the protection of the habitats, so avi-fauna have plenty of space for feeding and nesting. The variety of birdlife is attracted to the many micro-ecosystems in the park that include swamps, woodlands, thickets, plains and several others. After your adventurous game driving tour of Amboseli, birdwatching by nature-walking is a wonderful way to unwind. More than 425 species have been recorded, including white-breasted white-eyes, taita fiscals, eastern yellow-billed hornbills, straw-tailed whydahs, banded warblers, to name a few, as well as 40 raptors – perhaps more.
Kenya is one of only 15 countries globally where more than 1,000 bird species have been recorded, and it lies third on the African avian diversity list after DR Congo and Tanzania. This list includes the world’s two largest birds (common and Somali ostrich, now regarded as separate species) and its bulkiest flying creature (Kori bustard), along with a wealth of raptors and a dazzling array of colourful bee-eaters, turacos, parrots, rollers and passerines.
