Kenya is a prime destination for a birdwatching holiday at any time of year. Its tremendous geographical range gives Kenya a variety of climates and landscapes, hence it has the second highest number of species in Africa. It also holds the world-record ‘bird watch’ – with 342 species seen in 24 hours!
Between October and February many palearctic migrants come to Kenya’s marine and inland shorelines. Many swallows, terns and waders will be found during this time; whilst between June and July weavers and bishops are in breeding plumage and many Southern African migrants visit.
