With huge tracts of unspoiled acacia-dotted savannah, Kenya is justly famous as one of Africa’s premier mammal viewing destinations. However, with habitat ranging from lowland rainforest to moorlands above the tree-line, Kenya is also a birders paradise. A trip here in November provides not only all the resident species, but also a whole slew of Palearctic migrants that winter in the warmth of the African sun. In our all-to-brief two week tour we managed to pick up 506 bird species including almost all of the endemic and specialty species we had at our disposal. Though birds were our prime focus, it’s impossible to visit such a diverse country without experiencing the mammals that have made it one of the top tourist destinations in Africa. We took full advantage of the experience and saw an amazing 52 mammal species; including four species of cat, giraffe, elephant, zebra, jackal, hyena and many of the other species that are so iconic to Africa!

Day 1: Lake Magadi

Setting off on our first day we were all thrilled to be starting this once-in-a-lifetime adventure. With Marabou Stork lining the streets of Nairobi we left town and began the journey to Lake Magadi. En-route we stopped half way through the descent into the Great Rift Valley and explored the surrounding acacia scrub. Within moments of leaving the vehicle we began picking up species such as White-bellied Canary, Red-and-yellow Barbet, and White-browed Scrub-Robin. With all the flowering plants around we soon entered sunbird heaven. From the aptly named Beautiful Sunbird to the striking red of the Scarlet-chested and muted majesty of the Mariqua Sunbirds, we hardly knew where to aim our bins! While our quick jaunt soon turned into a much more thorough exploration of the area, we soon found our stomachs taking priority over birding and decided to continue on our way to Lake Magadi and lunch.

In stark contrast to the area surrounding Nairobi, Lake Magadi’s dry heat was a shock to the system. We quickly found the one tree that gave scant shade and set out to have lunch while scanning the open water. Amongst the hundreds of Lesser Flamingo, we picked out a small number of Greater Flamingo mixed in. Scanning through the small waders we discovered amazing numbers of Pied Avocet, Black-winged Stilt, and Little Stint. Our key species however was the smart looking Chestnut-banded Plover. Due to the lakes low water lever, all the plovers seemed to be concentrated in the one small area in front of us and we were able to obtain amazing looks of this often difficult to find species.

Feeling well satisfied with our first birding foray, we returned to Nairobi filled with excitement for the rest of our trip!

Day 2: Nairobi N.P.

Located within the city limits of Nairobi, over 600 species have been recorded in Nairobi N.P. and this makes the city the worlds “birdiest” capitol. We soon began to understand just how amazing the birding here can be. While waiting to check in at the gate we were already beginning to pick up new species, including the stunning Hartlaub’s Turaco, Red-cheeked Cordon-bleu, Red-collared Widowbird, and Long-crested Eagle. With well over 100 species seen during the day, highlights included a covey of Shelley’s Francolin, Black-bellied and White-bellied Bustards, Bateleur, and a beautifully fresh plumaged and unexpected Rosy-throated Longclaw.

Of course, Nairobi N.P. is known for more than just its birds. Today was also our first exposure to the wildlife that has made Kenya famous. And what an introduction it was! Not only did we pick up the regular host of zebra, giraffe, wildebeest, hartebeest, and a variety of antelopes, but we were soon thrilled to find a family of black rhino. However, our luck didn’t stop there. While the park has a plethora of large mammals, cats are usually extremely difficult here. However, after getting our fill of close-up giraffe photos, we rounded the corner only to come to an immediate screeching halt. Lying less than 20 meters away was the absolutely gorgeous serval, one of Kenya’s more difficult cat species. As we watched the cat rose to its feet and began walking around to make sure we had the best views possible. Our next surprise came as we were taking photos of a Black-bellied Bustard right on the road side. With all our focus on the bustard, we were shocked when a quick glance up found a lioness walking directly in the same line of sight. While this queen of the African savannah quickly disappeared behind a bush, we were all still thrilled to have picked up two amazing cats!

Day 3: Solio Plains, Kiene Forest, and Thicka Sewage Works

With the amazing quantity of birds seen over the last two days, we decided to focus our energies today on quality. We began by heading up to the Solio Plains in search of one of Kenya’s eight endemic species. This high elevation grassland is home to the striking Sharpe’s Longclaw. As we drove up we thought ourselves in for a long drawn out trek in the hopes of flushing our target. However, before we had all even had the chance to exit the vehicle, our bird was found. We were amazed to find huge numbers of Sharpe’s Longclaw in the field directly opposite us and all managed absolutely fantastic views! With our target under wraps, we continued on to find such beauties as Long-tailed Widowbird, African Snipe, Capped Wheatear, and Black-winged Plover.

As the day began to heat up we made our way to the Kiene Forest. Located on the lower slopes of Mt. Kenya, we decided a brief stop here would prepare us nicely for our journey to higher elevations the following day. While we expected to pick up some of the easier forest species, our need for quality over quantity was obviously still apparent.

Though the birding started slowly, we soon didn’t know which way to look as a fantastic White-starred Robin was found hopping around the base of the same tree that a Bar-tailed Trogon sat perched in. While these are both difficult species, the highlight was still to come. As we sat watching a dull colored group of Cabanis’s Greenbul, a bright orange flash quickly drew all our attention. Hopping around a tree directly in front of us was a Black-fronted Bushshrike. One of the most gorgeous birds of the forest, this often extremely difficult to find species was quickly voted the best bird of the trip thus far!

To round off the day list and prove that quantity still has its value, we continued on to the Thika Sewage Works. We quickly began to pick off waders such as Lesser Sandplover, and Marsh and Wood Sandpipers. We then began to scan for our first ducks in Africa and soon found species such as Red-billed and Hottentot Teals, Yellow-billed Duck, and Garganey. With this fantastic cap to our day we headed back for our final night in Nairobi.

Day 4: Blue Post Hotel and Mt. Kenya

After the whirlwind speed of the previous few days, we all decided a slow paced day of birding was called for. With a late 7:15 start we left Nairobi to explore the rest of Kenya further. Our first stop was at the Blue Post Hotel. In existence since 1913, this hotel has a long history as a traveler’s rest-stop. Located on a beautiful waterfall, the birds here tend to also be quite spectacular. The highlight was a stunning African Pygmy Kingfisher which perched quite close and allowed some excellent photo opportunities. We then made our way to Mt. Kenya with a brief stop at the Mwea rice paddies where we found species such as Golden-crowned Bishop, White-winged Widowbird, and a host of egrets and herons.

The lush forests of Mt. Kenya were in stark contrast to the areas we had birded thus far; even the Kiene Forest seemed to pale in comparison. After checking in to the fabulous Serena Mountain Lodge, we spent our afternoon on the rooftop scanning the surrounding forest as well as the mammal filled waterhole. Bird highlights here included Montane Oriole, Blackcap, Yellow-bellied Waxbill, and the striking (for a greenbul) Yellow-whiskered Greenbul. However, mammals stole the show and all our attention was soon on the waterhole as a family of elephant, our first thus far, came to drink directly below us. The buffalo, which had dominated the area, obviously felt a bit put out and quickly a brawl between elephant and buffalo arose. As the elephant chased the buffalo around the pond, it was soon clear who the winner would be.

With the buffalo out of the way, the elephants had a go at a family of Egyptian Goose just to prove their dominance once and for all! As darkness came lightning raged around Mt. Kenya and we crossed our fingers in the hopes that our following days plans wouldn’t be disrupted.

Day 5: Mt. Kenya and Naro Moru

As we awoke to the storms still surging around Mt. Kenya, we quickly realized that our plan of getting up to Met Station, the highest point on the mountain accessible by road, would have to be revised. However, this did give us a chance to spend a bit more time viewing the fantastic species around Mountain Lodge. From the rooftop we watched as hundreds of Red-fronted Parrot left their roost and came to feed nearby. This was soon followed by a host of other species waking up for their dawn chorus. Highlights included fantastic views of African Green Pigeon, Oriole Finch, Mountain Buzzard, and circling Giant Kingfisher.

After a late breakfast we began the journey to Naro Moru. En-route we picked up species such as Grey Cuckooshrike, Brown-capped Weaver, and Chinspot Batis. A special stop was also made for the Mackinder’s sub-species of Cape Eagle-Owl. We were lucky enough to be able to approach quite closely to this strikingly different sub-species and managed some great photos. Arriving at Naro Moru River Lodge we wandered the beautiful grounds in search of more fantastic birds and quickly picked up species such as Golden-winged Sunbird, Green Woodhoopoe, Rufous Chatterer, and Pallid Harrier. With heavy rains visible over the Aberdares we kept our fingers crossed that the next days birding would go according to plan.

Day 6: Aberdares to Lake Naivasha

While the previous days rain had us all a bit worried, we made our way to the Aberdares in the hopes that the gates were still open. We were all thrilled when we arrived with no impediment to our progress. With our concerns lifted we began birding in earnest. The lower elevation forests of the Aberdares were teeming with birds and we quickly began ticking off species such as Black Cuckooshrike, Pallid Honeyguide, Holub’s Golden Weaver, and Scaly Francolin. The Aberdares are also an amazing place for mammals and as we stopped at a small waterhole we were all shocked into silence as we spotted our first leopard lounging under a small tree at the edge of the opening.

We were lucky enough to be able to watch this magnificent beast for 15 minutes as it stretched and strut before disappearing into the undergrowth. As if one leopard wasn’t enough, we soon encountered our second. Sitting camouflaged on the road side, we screeched to a halt only to have the leopard come out to investigate our vehicle. Standing within feet of the van it took a good long look at us before sauntering off up the road.

Thrilled with having now seen all of the Big 5, we began the journey to the moorland above the tree-line and a search for the special species of this area. The scenery was astounding as we past from montane forest, through bamboo forest, and finally to the swampy moorlands. As we began scanning for specialty species, we were thrilled to find our second serval of the trip. Stalking small rodents in the moorland, we were able to watch as it pounced on a rather plump looking root-rat. After this prolonged look at our second cat species for the day, we continued our search for specialty birds and quickly found Jackson’s Francolin, Aberdare Cisticola, Scarlet-tufted Malachite Sunbird, Blue-headed Coucal, Alpine Chat, Slender-billed Starling, and Cinnamon-bracken Warbler. Having virtually cleaned up on our high elevation specialties, we continued on our way to Lake Naivasha.

Day 7: Lake Naivasha, Hell’s Gate N.P., and Lake Nakuru

As we hadn’t had much time around Lake Naivasha on the previous evening, we decided to begin the day by exploring the area around the lodge. A brief walk around the grounds proved extremely fruitful with species such as Verreaux’s Eagle-Owl, Black-lored Babbler, Red-headed Weaver, and Amethyst Sunbird. We then moved on to explore the lake itself. Taking out boat out to a small island we picked up a host of waders, terns, and ducks. The sheer number of African White Pelican was astounding and we were able to float amazingly close to large pods of hippo relaxing in the early morning.

With our day already off to a great start we left Lake Naivasha and made our way to Hell’s Gate N.P. This park is aptly named for its hot springs and is famous as one of the few parks in Kenya where you are allowed to exit the vehicle and walk amongst the animals.

Taking full advantage of this we were able to obtain excellent views of Rueppell’s Griffon, Nyanza Swift, and Red-faced Crombec to name but a few. The park is also home to the endangered Rothschild’s giraffe and we felt extremely privileged to be able to see this striking creature.

Arriving at Lake Nakuru in early afternoon we immediately began our birding and were quickly rewarded with superb views of the highly localized Grey-crested Helmet-Shrike. However, what truly sets this lake apart is the over one million flamingo that call it home. As we sat in awe of this spectacle we were further taken aback as a spotted hyena came loping along the shore line. With the light fading we sat and watched this truly picturesque seen in amazement before calling it a day and heading to our lodge for a fantastic dinner. With over 125 species seen, as well as the fantastic variety of scenery, the day would be etched in our minds for years to come.

Day 8: Lake Nakuru and Lake Baringo

With the early morning howl of nearby hyena, we awoke to begin a fantastic day of birding. We were once again awe-struck by the sheer number of flamingo that seemed to give Lake Nakuru an unearthly pink sheen. The number of birds in this region boggles the mind and we soon began picking up species including Greater Spotted and Steppe Eagles, African Hoopoe, and stunning views of the iconic Secretarybird. As we approached the waters edge the pink sheen took form in the shape of thousands upon thousands of Greater and Lesser Flamingos. Scanning the banks we soon found other wetland species including Common Redshank, Green Sandpiper, Cape Teal, and fabulously close views of Greater Painted Snipe.

Along with all the birds, our senses were on overload with the hoards of mammals surrounding us. While buffalo, waterbuck, zebra, and gazelle were everywhere, we soon found a group of four confiding white rhino that let us approach quite close. While it seemed impossible to top this rhino view, we ended up seeing a total of 19 white rhino during the morning, all of whom allowed excellent photo opportunities. On top of this, we saw our first family group of black-backed jackal lying frolicking in the shade of a large acacia. With such an excellent morning, it was hard to tear ourselves away but we knew the day had much more in store for us.

Arriving at Lake Baringo in the early afternoon we began birding immediately. Before even having a chance to set down our bags we were reaching for our bins as we quickly found the first of our Baringo specialties: Jackson’s Hornbill. Along with this fantastic bird were other species such as White-billed Buffalo-Weaver, Brown Babbler, and Red-billed Hornbill. Finally have a brief respite to check in, we headed off with Francis, a local bird expert, in search of some of the difficult to see nocturnal species. As always, he was prepared with a flurry of activity for us. Within walking distance of our hotel he showed us roosting Three-banded Courser, African Scops Owl, and Southern White-faced Scops Owl. Other species encountered along the way included Red-fronted Barbet, Pearl-spotted Owlet, Brown, and Red-chested Cuckoo. As the sky began to prematurely darken we returned to our hotel just before the heavy rain began to fall.

However, knowing that we would once again be going out with Francis on the following morning let us rest with the knowledge that more great birds were to come!

Day 9: Lake Baringo and Kakamega

In an attempt to maximize our birding time at Lake Baringo we decided to have a late breakfast and partake only in coffee first thing in the morning. As the sun rose our coffee soon combined with birding as the new species began to appear over the lake; these included Wattled Starling, African Darter, and the highly localized Northern Masked Weaver; a species whose entire range in Kenya is limited to the Lake Baringo environs. Off to an excellent start we once again met up with Francis to bird the famous Baringo Cliffs. This area is home to quite a few specialty species and with only a couple hours to bird the area we were thrilled to quickly start ticking these species off. As we searched for Hemprich’s Hornbill we quickly realized just how much it had rained the night before. Walking through the muddy cliff base it felt as if we had ten pound weights attached to our feet due to all the mud clinging to our shoes. As we searched for the hornbill we picked up many other specialties including Red-fronted Warbler, Mouse-colored Penduline-Tit, Fan-tailed Raven, and Brown-tailed Chat. After clogging through the mud with no sign of the hornbill we finally returned to the road only to discover a Hemprich’s not 50 meters from the van. After fully enjoying this species, and scraping the mud from our shoes, we followed Francis’s lead and within moments he had magically spotted a very hidden Slender-tailed Nightjar.

With our birding time in the area coming to a close we loaded into the van to begin the long drive to Kakamega. However, within 15 minutes we stopped short as the road out of the area was completely flooded and a fast moving river separated us from the rest of Kenya. We once again realized just how much it must have rained during the night. All told, we ended up waiting for almost two hours for water levels to subside. Of course, this “extra” time in the region was not wasted.

While bird activity died down in the heat of the day, we still managed to pick up a few new species. We also had the opportunity to chat with the local community, all of whom came out in festive spirits to see the spectacle of the overflowing river. While not an experience we planned for, it is definitely one that will be fondly remembered for a long time!

Day 10: Kakamega

Waking up before dawn, and without a single light around for miles, we were all taken aback by the number of stars filling the skies. This sight alone would have been enough to make the early rise worthwhile but as the sun rose and the dawn chorus began we were immediately in awe of all the new species around us as well. As the last remnant patch of Congolese rainforest in Kenya, Kakamega is home to a marvelous array of species found nowhere else in the country. Our first species of the day was the magnificent Grey Parrot. While common over much of its range, this species is almost completely extirpated from Kenya and as we managed great scope views we knew we were in for an amazing day. Leaving the hotel grounds we soon began picking up specialty species including the rare but stunning Turner’s Eremomela, Bocage’s and Lüdher’s Bushshrikes, White-browed Crombec, Mackinnon’s Fiscal, eye-level views of Yellow-bellied Wattle-eye, and both Yellow-spotted and Yellow-billed Barbets. With over forty new trip species seen on our morning walk we made our way back to the hotel for a bit of relaxation.
While we had planned on heading out again for the afternoon, the tranquility of Rondo Retreat was so enticing that many of us decided to stay in and enjoy the grounds at a slower pace. For those of us that did venture out, afternoon highlights included Square-tailed Drongo, Dusky Tit, Grey-winged Robin-Chat, and Pink-footed Puffback.

Day 11: Kakamega, Mumia Bridge, and Lake Victoria

Another pre-dawn wake-up proved disappointing as far as star gazing was concerned and the distant lightning shed an ominous note to birding plans. However, we managed to make the most of the dry hours and birded the immediate vicinity of Rondo Retreat. The overcast skies and threat of rain seemed to dampen the bird activity as well and our morning was definitely concerned more with quality than quantity.

Highlights included Yellow-crested and Brown-eared Woodpeckers as well as the skulking White-spotted Flufftail.
The rains finally arrived just as we loaded into the van to leave Kakamega. Driving west towards the Ugandan border the showers seemed to shadow our every move. Our first stop saw a break in the showers but the river we planned on birding along was a rushing torrent. Rock Pratincole, one of our target species, normally perches atop the exposed rocks but due to the heavy rains these were all below over a meter of rushing water. Though we feared our search was in vain, we persevered and finally found two stunning birds perched atop old bridge supports. With Rock Pratincole under our belts we quickly picked up other species, including Red-chested and Coppery Sunbirds, before continuing on to Kisumu.

Unfortunately the torrential downpours precluded any further stops en-route, but the rain stopped just as we pulled up to our lodge. Located on the shore of the world’s second largest lake, Lake Victoria, we were perfectly situated to enjoy the plentiful birdlife in the area. A brief walk around the hotel grounds brought such spectacular species as Black-headed Gonolek, Northern Brown-throated and Black-headed Weavers, African Skimmer, and Water Thick-knee. With our fingers crossed in the hopes that our pleasant weather would hold out we went to bed looking forward to exploring the papyrus swamps in the morning.

Day 12: Dunge Swamp and Masai Mara

Going after one of Kenya’s toughest specialty species, another early start found us at Dunge Swamp. Located on the edge of Lake Victoria, the dense papyrus swamps are home to a number of highly range restricted species. However, our main focus was on one species in particular: Papyrus Gonolek. Within moments of entering the swamps we began to hear this spectacular species calling. However, this would prove to be as much as we could manage. Despite our best efforts the gonolek was heard tantalizingly close but always just out of view. Luckily we consoled ourselves with a host of other highly sought after birds. These included Papyrus Canary, Marsh Tchagra, Slender-billed Weaver, and Carruther’s Cisticola. With a long drive ahead of us we pulled ourselves away from the swamp and began our journey to the Masai Mara. Arriving in the late afternoon we had just enough time to spot Crested Guineafowl, Woolly-necked Stork, and Senegal Lapwing before darkness fell to the booming of distant Southern Ground Hornbill.

Day 13: Masai Mara

The Masai Mara, part of the world famous Serengeti ecosystem, is justly world renowned for its amazing mammal viewing opportunities. We began our day full of anticipation for the wonders we would find here. Of course, mammals had to share equal precedence with the amazing birdlife here. Even before entering the park we were picking up species including the stunning Violet-backed Starling, oversized Moustached Grass-Warbler, and the range restricted Usambiro Barbet. Once we entered the park we saw that the recent heavy rains had flooded huge plains and created a massive swamp. While at first worried that this would hinder our birding, a beautiful Rufous-bellied Heron landed nearby and we quickly decided that maybe the flooding wasn’t so bad. As we moved east the plains dried up and we quickly started picking up more new species. Highlights included a very confiding trio of South Ground Hornbill on the side of the road, African Quailfinch, Lappet-faced and White-headed Vultures, and a rare sighting of a pair of Imperial Eagle soaring overhead.

Mammal sightings were also in abundance and we were thrilled to find ourselves in the midst of huge herds of elephant, topi, and Thompson’s gazelle. In the heat of birthing season, we had the unique chance to see a plethora of young animals including a baby gazelle just rising to take its first steps and a baby elephant, probably less than a month old, which was still small enough to be blown around by the strong winds. Of course, the cats are always a highlight and we found three large prides of lion relaxing in the sun (one on the picnic tables where we had planned on eating lunch) as well as a lazy cheetah stretching out on the open plains. While thrilled with all we had seen, we were all excited to have another full day to explore the Mara coming up.

Day 14: Masai Mara

Located on the escarpment overlooking the Mara, we awoke at Mara West Camp to a stunning sunrise over the open plains below. Our attention was soon torn from this fantastic view as a pair of equally stunning Ross’s Turaco flew into the trees just behind our luxury tents. These large royal-blue birds with a shocking red crest and yellow eye skin immediately had our blood pumping and we soon found ourselves birding around the lodge grounds rather than entering the Mara proper. Highlights of our walk included Trilling Cisticola, Purple-banded Sunbird, and Grey Kestrel before we were finally ready to head into the park.

As we had satiated our thirst for mammals on the previous day, we focused primarily on birding. However, the Masai Mara is the type of place where mammals are constantly around. While watching a Long-billed Pipit, the nearby trumpeting of elephant grabbed our attention. We were thrilled to see two youngsters play fighting as the adults stood watch nearby. The excitement quickly escalated as an adult male came into the matriarchal herd in pursuit of a receptive female. As we watched the massive male caught the female and mounted her in such an awkward manner as to make us all laugh.

Returning to our birding we continued to pick up new species as we ventured further into the Mara. With large thunder clouds looming in the distance we were ready to arrive at our lodge when we received a call for help from a nearby stranded vehicle. Driving off-road through the flooded plains we could see how they had gotten stuck. Luckily, our venture managed to flush a beautiful Great Snipe before we too got bogged down while trying to push the other vehicle to dry land. Deciding it was as good a time as any for lunch, we relaxed while seven other vehicles came to our rescue. As one of these getting stuck as well, it was quite a loud cheer that went up as we were finally all freed. With our adventure for the day behind us we proceeded to our lodge to spend a relaxing afternoon around the waterhole where we picked up Wahlberg’s Eagle, Grey-capped Warbler, and amazing views of Striped Kingfisher.

Day 15: Masai Mara and Limuru Ponds

With early afternoon flights, our last day in Kenya was spent primarily in traveling from the Masai Mara to Nairobi. However, this didn’t stop us from birding as much as possible along the way. Our morning started earlier than planned as we were woken up by the calls of nearby birds. Though mostly confused diurnal species calling, we did manage to pick up a Freckled Nightjar as well. After a bit more relaxation and an early breakfast, we left our lodge to begin the journey to Nairobi. While it’s always sad to leave the Mara, we took full advantage of our time here and absorbed as many of the giraffe, zebra, and wildebeest as possible.

With our limited time and muddy roads we were slightly worried about getting to the airport on-time. However, we still managed to squeeze in some birding during a lunch stop at the Limuru ponds. Though we had already visited many wetland areas, the Limuru ponds always hold a couple specialties which are hard to find elsewhere. As we ate we were lucky enough to pick up new species including Maccoa, White-backed, and Tufted Ducks. With our departure looming we continued to Nairobi and a final farewell to Kenya. With 506 bird species and 52 mammal species encountered in two weeks we left knowing we’d had a wonderful once-in-a-lifetime experience in one of the world’s true treasures!
