More than 1000 species of birds can be found in Kenya. They include eagles, vultures, hornbills, weavers, flamingos and ostriches. This Kenyan bird gallery highlights many of the birds you would get to see while on a standard safari in Kenya, in the Masai Mara or Samburu, Amboseli and Lake Nakuru National Parks.

For serious birders it's worth taking a specialized birding safari (see below). The best time to go birding in Kenya is from October to April. The roads can be muddy, but you'll be well rewarded. Birding safaris will take you to parks like Lake Baringo, Kakamega, Meru and Lake Naivasha. They will also allow you the time to study the birds, unlike other safaris where you can occasionally be rushed.
