This safari takes you to Kenya's Great Rift Valley Lakes for a serious birdwatching expedition. Our birding tour leaders are local residents with ornithology expertise and have great experience in leading birding groups around Kenya. They assist the guest in sorting out bird identification, location and navigating the birding sites. At Beacon Safaris, we prefer watching the birds at our guests’ pace hence; improving on quality viewing and accurate identification of species, from over 1100 bird species we have in Kenya. Depending on the Kenya birding route that you choose, the number of species seen ranges from approximately, over 300 species for shorter birding tours and over 600 species for longer birding holidays.
