Bird watching in Africa


Not only is East Africa famous for its large wild animals like lions, elephants, and leopards, but it is also one of the most special areas in the world for bird-watching.

Various international research institutes have installed a great many observation facilities to explore the diverse richness of bird species in the area. Several Karibu Africa Safaris guides are fascinated by the presence of so many different rare birds and have specialized in ornithology. Every year, they go on training courses to expand their knowledge. They also enjoy sharing their knowledge with other guides by organizing joint safaris.


One interesting area is the Rift Valley, which runs all the way from the north to the south of Africa. It is a tremendous cleft, dotted with lakes that are home to an unprecedented number of at least 400 different species of birds. There are millions of flamingos, not to mention hornbills, weaver-birds, bee-eaters, ice-birds, parrots, eagles and vulture among other species. A must for all bird lovers are the Pel’s fishing owl, the fish-eagle, the hamerkop, the giant heron, and the secretary bird. With time and patience, you can cross many new birds off your list.
