The Lilac-breasted roller is Kenya's National Bird !
It is a beautifull little colorful bird that lives in grassland habitats surrounded trees and shrubs, since the birds make use of higher roosts for feeding and nesting. In as much as they love protected areas, this africa bird can be seen along roads and paths as roads provide an ideal borderline habitat for the birds to perch and search for prey.

Kenya is an amazing beautifull country that offers not just the best birding in Africa but some of the best birding on earth!
1100 species have already been recorded from Kenya, this is far more than from any equivalent area in Africa. This huge amount of different birds is a consequence of a big diversity in climatic conditions and habitats. Kenya offersg dry savannas to forests,but also snow-capped volcanoes and mangroves, from deserts to great lakes, mountains and rich grasslands).
Birding in Kenya is delightfully easy, with many open and bird-rich habitats to enjoy.
Oranje Safari birding safari customers will travel in 4x4 Jeeps that have been specially adapted for safari work, with large roof hatches that make bird and wildlife observation and photography easy.
During your scenically spectacular trip we shall encounter huge ostriches and tiny estrildid finches, but also a marvellous selection of birds of prey and waterbirds, weird-looking turacos, some mousebirds, hornbills and barbets, gaudy starlings and weavers, confusing cisticolas, jewel-like sunbirds and much more !
All birds can be found within a relatively small geographical area plus it is a pleasure to find many species which are quite tame and remarkably approachable what makes taking beautifull pictures easy. What makes Kenya a unique birding destination is that we will be paying plenty of attention to mammals as well, and in particular the big cats – Lion, Cheetah and Leopards !
Ofcourse no amount of exposure to bbc and National Geographic wildlife films can blunt the real life impact of a herd of African Elephants moving slowly across the savanna or a Lion half-hidden in the grass.
Masai Mara Birding Safari
The Highlight of this Oranje Safari will be our visit to the grasslands of the Masai Mara. This for sure is Kenya’s finest wildlife reserve and a superb birding localion. As well as the best place in the country in which to enjoy the magnificent spectacle of the herds of gnus (or wildebeest), zebras, gazelles and other ungulates and their attendant carnivores you will find huge amounts of them during the Migration.
