KITALE AND KONGELAI ESCARPMENT BIRDING DAY TOUR
On our Kitale and Kongelai Escarpment Birding Day Tour; we start early. We head into the Kongelai Escarpment where we enjoy birding different habitats in the Sudan-Guinea Savannah Biome. This area hosts many uncommon species for Kenya and is less-visited by regular safari and tour itineraries. We shall explore different woodlands, bushlands and farms. We shall also visit the edges of the great Suam River, along the Kenya-Uganda border.
We shall also visit different swamps and grasslands as we seek additional species. The famous Mt. Elgon will also be visible to the West and is often seen all day. This mountain is a key attraction on our Kitale and Kongelai Escarpment Birding Day Tours.
We shall then head back home or to the hotel; marking the end to our great Kitale and Kongelai Escarpment Birding Day Tour.
