SAIWA SWAMP NATIONAL PARK BIRDING DAY TOUR
On the Saiwa Swamp National Park Birding Day Tour we shall start our birding in Kitale, scoring the local birds. From here we shall head to the Saiwa Swamp National Park, a small park where exploration is done on foot. This is Kenya’s smallest national park. It hosts a stable breeding population of Sitatunga antelopes too.
We shall spend the time birding here on foot as we explore different forest trails. We shall also explore some of the forest watch towers and wetland boardwalks.
We shall then head back home or to the hotel; marking the end to our great Saiwa Swamp National Park Birding Day Tour.
