The East African nations of Tanzania and Kenya each boast a bird list in excess of 1,000 species. However this impressive indicator of extreme avian diversity doesn’t do justice in illustrating how amazing the birding really is in these countries. Nowhere else on the planet are birds as obvious, abundant, confiding and colourful! Of course there are the cisticolas and forest skulkers, but anyone who has had the pleasure of visiting Kenya or Tanzania will verify the ease and brilliance of the birding, as well as the incredible photographic opportunities that abound. If seeing large numbers of species is your game, then look no further – each of our Kenya Mega birding tours have recorded over 800 species! Our Tanzania Mega tour produces lower numbers, but more than makes up for this with rare Eastern Arc Mountain endemics.
Our ever-popular Kenya & Tanzania Birding & Big Game departures also focus on the unbeatable wildlife of the region, including the breath-taking Wildebeest migration and the highest density of large predators in the world.
With up to 2 million pink individuals, Lake Nakuru’s Lesser Flamingo spectacle is one of the world’s great wildlife sights and we cannot more highly recommend a visit to East Africa to experience this and a myriad other magnificent bird, game, scenic and cultural adventures.
