Safaris and Conservation In Africa

Safeguarding Fragile Ecosytems Through Responsible Tourism

Oluokos African luxury safari packages offer the quintessential birding safari experiences for all walks in life. This is heavily attributed to vast wilderness areas, impressive quality, diversity of species and our safari guides field experience.  

Among the most impressive of the continent’s innumerable wildlife spectacles are the flamingoes on the dotted ecologically intricate Rift Valley lakes, waders in deltas, swamps, rivers and lakes of Africa to raptors on open plains and the forests. Africa really does impress with its birding safaris and it is not unusual to record over 85 species of birds in a day.

From the stunning birds like sunbirds, kingfishers, barbets, rollers, hornbills, starlings, sparrows,  bushshrikes and finches can be seen as can a rich diversity of a good number of raptors. The bataleur, snake eagle, martial eagle, fish eagle, falcons, buzzards and goshawks dominate the skies.

On the wetlands, Africa’s birding safari is among the finest in the worlds. Its wetlands throughout support a wealth of wonderful birdlife. From thick-knees, jacana, storks, herons, ibises, pelicans, waterfowl and waders to name a few.

Luxury African Bird Watching Safari

To appreciate luxury bird watching safaris in Africa and understanding the best of its species diversity involves exploring different ecosystems during the same holiday. In general, for bird watching safaris we recommend, spending longer time in each attraction sites to avoid missing birds and animals and we offer quality activities in the best light so you get outstanding bird sightings. 

Though a good number of birders may prefer to be on the move, visiting as many different national parks and likely bird habitats as possible logistically with given timeframes and targeted species desire, we recommended spending a good number of days in some of our selected birding hotspots where it’s possible to see over 250 bird species within three days.

Kenya's Top
Birding Sites

From the dull and drub finch to the beautiful sunbird and from the mythical hamerkop to the steady and no-nonsense bustard bird… Hey, this is Kenya. Let’s go birding!

Of vistas so immense that they touch your soul for nature and awake your birding spirit. With a checklist of over 1100 species of birds, Kenya is well known as a birding safari destination and this already adds more value to the wildlife attractions in our parks.

Uganda's Top
Birding Sites

The diverse habitats in the land-locked Uganda’s most ancient forest appear to be the perfect habitat for a diversity of bird species, with over 1000 species having been recorded. These bird species mainly well distributed from Lake Victoria’s shores, the source of the Nile, and from the Albertine Rift to the northern arid lands. You can get to see these species on a birding safari in Uganda in these popular habitats that range from the vast savannas to the trpical forests and the expansive swamps.

Tanzania's Top
Birding Sites

Home to one of the highest number of species in Africa, Tanzania is a good option for a trainee twitcher as new species can be spotted throughout your trip. From the plains of the Serengeti, rich with huge raptors, to the woodlands of the Nyerere (formerly Selous) and Ruaha and Lake Manyara with its resident flamingos, the varied habitats really increase the species count. Tanzania has an  impressive 24 endemic bird species alongside it checklist.

DR Congo Top
Birding Sites

With a staggering list of 1189 bird species and in spite of having the biggest number of species than any other African country, the DR Congo isn’t well known and even to make it worse some of its bird species could be new to science if not only being poorly known. For a country, that its natural resources are yet to be explored fully, tourism in general or bird watching tourism in the Democratic Republic of Congo remains as a far-fetched realization.

About Us

Africa Bird Watching Safaris
What can I say? We had the most incredible safari trip of our lives. Ouma was polite, professional, friendly, thoughtful and extremely knowledgeable. He went to every effort to ensure we made the most out of our trip, and ensuring we were comfortable and happy throughout. He liaised with hotel staff to ensure everything was perfect ahead of our arrivals, he planned our route taking into account what we wanted to see and do, ensuring we never took the same road twice (!!) and he taught so much about the African wildlife, culture and landscape.
