Arrival at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport in the morning. Transfer to The Stanley Hotel. A morning to relax and wear off jet lag but not without an introduction of the Kenyan birds. A walk in the garden of our hotel will give our first count of African birds: Northern Pied Babbler, Holub’s Golden Weaver, Speckled Mousebird, Dusky Turtle Doves and numerous Sunbirds.
After lunch we visit the Nairobi National Park, which despite being only a few kilometers from the city, is a home to big game. In its open grasslands scattered with acacia trees we will see the first game like Gazelles, Zebras, Giraffes and maybe some of the Cats. We also see Ostrich, Secretary Bird, Crowned Crane, Vulture, Cattle Egret, Great Egret, Tawny Eagle and a herd of Buffaloes should provide Red-billed Oxpecker perched on their backs. Black Kite, Marabou Stork, Pied Crow and African Palm Swift are also available in the park.
Overnight at The Stanley Hotel in Nairobi.

Check in at Lake Baringo Club where you will find plenty of information on the area’s bird life in your room. A resident Ornithologist will team up with your guide and walk you before breakfast and in the evenings. Your driver / guide will gladly assist with any queries.
