There are over 1100 species found in different habitats in Kenya, including migrant and non-migrant birds. However, visit Great Rift Valley to enjoy the most dramatic scenery while watching the birds. On a clear day any time of the year savanna and geology of the place will be the perfect background for watching flamingoes hanging out randomly. And although, this is the perfect spot for birdwatching no matter the time, aim for October to March as this is the period when most migrant species arrive. Finally, choose January if you want to spot one million waterbirds in Great Rift Valley.
