ARABUKO SOKOKE FOREST BIRDING TOUR
On the Arabuko Sokoke Forest Birding Tour, we shall visit this phenomenal birding site in Coastal Kenya. Arabuko Sokoke Forest is the best birding location in the entire coastal Kenya.
We shall get to the forest early to catch the first birds and spend the day transecting different sections. This is the most interesting coastal forest in East Africa and hosts many amazing birds species. We shall explore different sections of the forest and make transects that will sample all the local habitats. We shall explore different forest classes and then sample local wetlands. Some beautiful erosion sites will be explored for sceneries and additional birds. The local endemic Sengis and monkey species will also be plenty.
We shall then return to our hotel, marking the end to our lovely Arabuko Sokoke Forest Birding Tour.
