Kenya is a fantastic destination for both serious birding and amazing wildlife encounters and above all you will see some of the best scenery in Africa.
I was born and brought up on the shores of Lake Baringo, a birding heaven and since then, this area has been my home. During that time I had the opportunity to become very familiar with the amazing birds and mammals that Kenya offers.
At heart, I’m a birder before anything else. I strive to understand the unusual habits of birders, hoping to share this knowledge and experience with the rest of the birding community around the globe. As a full time naturalist, I aim to make birding and bird watching in Kenya easily navigable, less stressful and fun. For information on birding and general safaris in Kenya, Northern Tanzania and Uganda, please feel free to drop me a line at; firstname.lastname@example.org

This blog is all about birding and bird watching East Africa. As a passionate ornithologist and local tour guide, this blog documents my adventures birding and shares them with others interested in Kenya’s bird life. I love to bird watch anywhere I can! I am involved with Lake Baringo Biodiversity Conservation Group and also run a local eco-tourism company, https://silentflierssafaris.co.ke/ and http://naturetrailskenya.com/ that specializes in bird watching tours and safaris in Kenya.
I completed my education at Moi University in Tourism and Wildlife Management. I’ve also completed certificates in Tour Guiding and Administration from Wildlife Clubs of Kenya and Fundamentals in Ornithology from the Elsamere Field Study Centre.I am a member of Kenya Professional Safari Guide Association with a Bronze badge.
I also offer advise and assistance when planning bird-watching trips to Kenya, Uganda, Northern Tanzania and Ethiopia. Carefully formulated itineraries to suit individual needs, incorporating “birder friendly accommodation”, local bird guides, tour operations and car hire. I also encourage awareness of birds and their habitats as valuable natural resources among local communities and promoting Important Bird Areas to add value to our precious natural habitats.
I am a pragmatist who amalgamates different school of thought to reach a unique blend on my views regarding wildlife conservation, natural history and climate change. I believe in living for a purpose beyond self.
