Impressions of Kenya

lesser-flamingo2The country's dramatically diverse geography has resulted in an enormous range of natural habitats, making Kenya one of the natural wonders of the world. A land of endless potential for the wildlife enthusiast. From great migratory herds of the open savannah to an incredible abundance of birdlife, from the depths of a tropical rainforest to the depths of the Indian Ocean teeming with fish, Kenya truly is a world of natural wonders.

It holds some of the most remarkable birding sights, with such spectacles a must see experience! You can find the world’s biggest bird, the Ostrich, but also we will see spectacular flamingos that congregate in their millions at the various Lakes of the Great Rift Valley, painting them pink.

Special CommentIt goes without saying that all our accommodation is of the usual very high standard as all Worldwide Birding Tours. This tour is relaxed and recommended if comfort and easy pace is required.

black-bellied-bustardWith eleven percent of the world’s species – some 1089 different varieties, Kenya’s birding is one of the best in the world. It is not unusual to record 300-600 different varieties on a short trip or to record more than 120 at a particular site in a single day! The variety of birds in Kenya is made possible by the favourable climate, diverse habitats and geographical features, that make it a suitable migratory route for birds. Our tour has been organised to cover some of the best birding areas and aims to visit a large range of habitats. Besides bird watching we will also pay attention to game-viewing in general. Most places do have fabulous possibilities. Kenya offers more than 400 mammal species.
All our guests always have regular options, either join-in with the tour group birding/game viewing or opt-out and enjoy your own company. You, the client, have choices unlike with so many other group tours!
Take a look around. We have put all the interesting information together on a single page. Enjoy our impressions of Kenya with a selection of fine bird and wildlife photos.

Meet your Tour Guides for Kenya

joseph1Joseph Mwangi is our senior ornithological and wildlife guide in Kenya. His vast experience of 12 years as a guide in this country has been of great benefit to our company and the many clients fortunate enough to have met him. Not only does Joseph work with Worldwide Birding Tours, but has become a friend to us and those who have gone on safari with him.
Tour leader: Each tour will have a representative of Worldwide Birding Tours to accompany it, ensuring attention to detail and fulfilling our pledge not to send you on holiday, but to take you.
Born in Central province of Kenya, Joseph's interest in birding came way back in 1992-1995 (a real hidden talent) whilst he was in secondary school. This saw Joseph joining with the Geographical Club (where he became chairman) and later joined the tourism college, these interests saw his talent as a leading bird guide grow and later he joined Nature Kenya, a society that in Kenya deals with matters pertaining to Birds, Flowers, Plants, Entomology and in the general conservation of Nature. Joseph is also a member of the Kenya Professional Safari Guides Association (KPSGA) and holds a Bronze Medal.
