Birding and wildlife in the Great Rift Valley


Calling all birdwatching enthusiasts! This wildlife-spotting Kenya holiday has been specially designed with our feathered friends in mind. Kenya's Great Rift Valley is renowned for its biodiversity and with over 400 species of bird known to frequent its skies, this one of the best places in the country to enjoy a successful birdwatching holiday.

Whether you are an experienced birder or you are just starting out, the places you'll visit on this trip have been selected because they have a reputation for abundant birdlife and viewing opportunities here are perfect for all abilities. Spend time in some of Kenya's smallest national parks with an intimate group to spot flamingo and watch for an array of heron, stork and egret from your boat on Lake Naivasha.

One of the things that makes this carefully crafted trip unique is the way in which your holiday will end. Not content with just giving you the chance to explore one of Kenya's best birdwatching regions, we'll also take you into the heart of the Masai Mara to come face-to-face with some of Africa's larger characters. Spend three nights at a comfortable tented safari camp in the Masai Mara National Park, where you'll set off on game drives and explore the wild plains with bush guides.
