Observing birds & wildlife in their natural surroundings is the main focus of our tours, and the itineraries are designed to provide the best opportunities to encounter Birds and mammals. We also strive to understand a bit of the bigger picture, such as how birds & wildlife go about their daily lives, and integrate into the environment. The quality of your experience is our number one priority and above all, our field experience is what makes us unique.

We are always based in comfortable lodging or generally the best available in the most remote part of the country. The days are sometimes long, but usually at a relaxed and easy pace, with plenty of opportunities for comfort stops, meals, and photography. Before starting your tour get prepared with a pair of binoculars, a field guide, and a hat. Maybe a little notebook to carry in your pocket. For the Field guides of Birds of East Africa we recommend the following:
- "Field guide to the Birds of East Africa"
- "Birds of Kenya and Northern Tanzania".
