Trip report: Kenya, the Whole of Africa in a Nutshell (May 2007) by Tropical Birding

Guided by Benji Schwartz.

Kenya is an absolutely astounding destination for those wishing to see a huge number of species on their trip to Africa. By visiting an extremely assorted range of habitats many very specialized species can be encountered; from lush montane forests to the treeless high-elevation moorlands, open acacia-spotted savannahs, and extremely thick coastal and Congolese rainforests, there’s always something new to see. Add to this the fact that Kenya is probably the best place in Africa to see all the large mammals and it is no wonder that the country has become such a huge destination for birders and non-birders alike. A birding trip provides the opportunity to see lions, elephants, leopards, cheetahs, giraffes, and so much more while also seeing a huge cross-section of Kenya and the wonderful bird species that inhabit this amazing country. With 578 species of birds and 47 species of mammals, our time in Kenya was a non-stop adventure!
