What is a Bird Walk?

Bird Walking is a light walking safari that involves observing and studying different species of birds, in their natural habitat. This adventure is conducted with the help of our passionate birding specialist’s Masai guide. Together with your guide, this excursion will teach you how to recognize and name bird species by sight, sound and habitat.

Bird walking safari is one of the main activities carried out at Basecamp Masai Mara which is located along the Talek River. Basecamp Masai Mara is surrounded by a wealth of diverse flora and fauna. Over the years we have managed to revive the Talek River ecosystem by planting trees to address the pressing issue of deforestation and ground erosion. The afforestation program has since attracted over 300 bird species that have been recorded in the Masai Mara, including the endemic birds and the other wildlife species that it possesses. The atmosphere at the camp offers excellent opportunity to view the birds in their natural habitat, with good photographic opportunities
