Bird Watching Safaris

Come on one of our exciting Asilia birding safaris and experience the beauty and diversity of countless magnificent bird species.  

If you're a birdwatching enthusiast seeking an unforgettable experience, an East African birding safari with Asilia should undoubtedly be on your bucket list. Kenya and Tanzania are primary stopovers for scores of birds migrating between Asia, Europe, and Africa. East Africa offers incredibly diverse, dramatic, and romantic landscapes, think “Out of Africa”, and it’s a jaw-dropping birdwatcher's paradise. 

Our welcoming, friendly, and hospitable Asilia guides, who have grown up under the warm East African sunshine, possess extensive knowledge of birds. They can’t wait to take you on a fascinating birding safari and share the habits and behaviours of as many bird species as possible. Your safari will also be interspersed with walks so that you can get closer to birds in their natural habitats.  

What Birds Will You See on a Birding Safari

Depending on your specific location, your birding safari may offer you the chance to spot the stunning lilac-breasted roller, majestic African fish eagle, and elusive forest-dwelling Pel's fishing owl. The rare shoebill stork, which can only be found in a few locations in East Africa, is a popular attraction. On a walking safari along the sweeping shores of one of the shallow saline lakes, you also may see millions of breeding lesser pink flamingo. It’s a breathtaking sight.
