Nairobi National Park Bird-Watching Tour Description
Nairobi National Park is an ornithologist’s paradise, with over 500 species of birds to observe. The expansive grassland environment here is ideal for several limited-range avian creatures like the Jackson’s widowbird, who make their home during suitable rainfall. As well as winged wonders, you can also catch glimpses of some larger game animals such as lions, zebras, giraffes and rhinos! No matter what time of year you come here – although our suggestion would be from November through April to witness migratory birds from beyond our continent – Nairobi National Park provides plenty of opportunities for birders and wildlife watchers alike!

Nairobi National Park Bird-Watching Tour Itinerary
Nairobi National Park is a bird-lover’s paradise, boasting an impressive selection of over 520 avian species! Eight of the 94 Somali–Masai biome and 25 of the 67 African Highlands biome birds that inhabit Kenya can be found here. During certain times of year, the park also plays host to thousands of migrating Lesser Falcons. With its substantial area of undisturbed grassland, it’s no surprise NNP regularly serves as a breeding ground for rarer species like the Jackson’s Widowbird after good rains. The globally threatened Corncrake, Madagascar Pond-Heron, Lesser Kestrel, Corncrake, Jackson’s Widowbird, Red-throated Tit and Shoebill Stork have all been spotted here at one point or another – as well as several regionally threatened species such as Struthio camelus and Ephippiorhynchus senegalensis. So come explore this stunning wildlife sanctuary and join them in their remarkable journey!
