  • Birdwatching

Known as a birder paradise, East Africa has an estimated 1400 bird species. East Africa is endowed with a variety of vegetation types and water bodies that make up the major part of the Great Lakes Region, turning it into a favorable habitat to most of the world’s famed bird species.

East Africa serves as a critical stopover for many migratory bird species traveling between breeding and wintering grounds in Europe, Asia, and other parts of Africa. This seasonal influx contributes to the region’s high bird diversity.
