Lilac-breasted roller

The Lilac-breasted roller is Kenya's National Bird !
It is a beautifull little colorful bird that lives in grassland habitats surrounded trees and shrubs, since the birds make use of higher roosts for feeding and nesting. In as much as they love protected areas, this africa bird can be seen along roads and paths as roads provide an ideal borderline habitat for the birds to perch and search for prey.


Kenya Birding Safari Tours

Oranje Safaris Kenya tours give you the oportunity to view a huge amount of birds and mammals and stay at many wonderful locations view our accomodations list for more information about lodges tented camps and more.

Kenya is an amazing beautifull country that offers not just the best birding in Africa but some of the best birding on earth!

1100 species have already been recorded from Kenya, this is far more than from any equivalent area in Africa. This huge amount of different birds is  a consequence of a big  diversity in climatic conditions and habitats. Kenya offersg dry savannas to forests,but also snow-capped volcanoes and mangroves, from deserts to great lakes, mountains and rich grasslands).
Birding in Kenya is delightfully easy, with many open and bird-rich habitats to enjoy.

Oranje Safari birding safari customers will travel in 4x4 Jeeps that have been specially adapted for safari work, with large roof hatches that make bird and wildlife observation and photography easy.

During your scenically spectacular trip  we shall encounter huge ostriches and tiny estrildid finches, but also a marvellous selection of birds of prey and waterbirds, weird-looking turacos, some mousebirds, hornbills and barbets, gaudy starlings and weavers, confusing cisticolas, jewel-like sunbirds and much more !
All birds can be found within a relatively small geographical area plus it is a pleasure to find many species which are quite tame and remarkably approachable what makes taking beautifull pictures easy. What makes Kenya a unique birding destination is that we will be paying plenty of attention to mammals as well, and in particular the big cats – Lion, Cheetah and Leopards !

Ofcourse no amount of exposure to bbc and National Geographic wildlife films can blunt the real life impact of a herd of African Elephants moving slowly across the savanna or a Lion half-hidden in the grass.

Masai Mara Birding Safari

The Highlight of this Oranje Safari will be our visit to the grasslands of the Masai Mara. This for sure is Kenya’s finest wildlife reserve and a superb birding localion. As well as the best place in the country in which to enjoy the magnificent spectacle of the herds of gnus (or wildebeest), zebras, gazelles and other ungulates and their attendant carnivores you will find huge amounts of them during the Migration.

Tripadvisor Reviews

  • "Amazing Experience"


    Harry assisted us with organizing our vacation from start to finish. We booked transfers, flights, the safari and hot air balloon ride at Governor's Camp in Masai Mara all through Oranje. Upon our arrival to JKO, a representative with Oranje was present to assist us. We had several flights booked and a rep with the company was there for each departure and arrival. We had an amazing time and enjoyed every moment in Nairobi, Masai Mara, and Diani.

  • “Spectacular Safari”

    “Spectacular Safari”


    Just had an incredible 4 day safari with Oranje through Tsavo East, West and Amboseli. The highlights were mating elephants and mating lions, and three hunting cheetahs seen at close quarters. We saw hundreds of other animals including hippos, and crocodiles eating a baby hippo at Mizumi Springs. Our Driver Alex was very knowledgable and a skilled driver who made us feel safe at all times. We had excellent service from him and Harry who were regularly checking that everything was OK, and they chose superbly located lodges near watering holes where we saw an array of animals every night. We had a private safari in a huge land rover so the trip was spacious and there were cold drinks on board and frequent toilet stops. Everything ran on time, and Oranje is also well covered with flying doctor insurance. I highly recommend a safari with Oranje.

  • “9 days safari perfectly organised”

    “9 days safari perfectly organised”


    Harry, the owner of Oranje Safari, was a good help in planning our trip to Kenya. By visiting the diiferent parks, we did not only see a lot of wildlife, but did also see all kinds of different and beautful landscapes. Our guide Alex was top!. He has eyes like a hawk and knows a lot about the wildlife, and is specialised in birds.

    At first we were a little worried about working directly from Belgium with a local agency. But Oranje Safaris dit not only offer a personal service, but also reacted promptly on any question. What a difference compared to the travel agencies in Belgium. We recommend Oranje Safari to everyone who wants to go on safari in Kenya without any worries.
