We are very pleased to be offering a brand new tour through Kenya & Tanzania, which has been exclusively set up for female birders and wildlife enthusiasts. The tour will be lead by one of our most experienced leaders – Holly Faithfull and focuses on the wealth of birds, wildlife and general natural history that Kenya and Tanzania are so famous for. For our all-female ensemble, we have cherry-picked the very best and most accessible destinations in these two vast lands. In Tanzania, we visit the legendary Ngorongoro Crater and the endless plains of the Serengeti. The Crater itself teems with big game and supports the highest density of large predators on the planet. We will also visit Tarangire, home to a huge diversity and volume of animals attracted to its perennial rivers. In Kenya, we explore key reserves offering a variety of habitats from the game-filled Amboseli lying in the shadows of Kilimanjaro, the montane forests of Mt Kenya, fantastic Shaba in the dry Samburu region and Lake Nakuru that glows pink with millions of flamingos.
With a maximum group size of six participants, we regularly score up to 500 bird species and enjoy unparalleled African mammal and cultural experiences while spending time at some truly incredible lodges. It’s no wonder that this is one of our most popular tours.
Some of the special birds we expect to see include the beautiful Golden-winged Sunbird, the gaudy Vulturine Guineafowl, fabulous Golden-breasted Starling, Bar-tailed Trogon and Fischer’s Lovebird. If this is your first visit to Africa, you will be delighted by a plethora of typical African birds; Ostrich, Hamerkop, Secretarybird, Bateleur, hornbills, woodhoopoes, weavers and waxbills.
Please note that this tour is exclusively open to female guests only.
