The Sustainable Birding Company offers high quality Birding, African Big 5 Safari and Photography Tours across a variety of habitats in Kenya that directly contribute to the conservation of indigenous birds and wildlife. Our model of sustainability involves donating a percentage of profit to local bird conservation NGOs and our own personal projects, mitigating against environmental impact, and creating opportunities for young people to get inspired by birding. We only employ the best local bird guides, meaning you not only benefit from their huge expertise but that you're also supporting local livelihoods. Choosing to go on tour with us means that you are choosing to support a more sustainable approach to birding in Kenya. ​ It's a win win situation for all: Book today and have the time of your life!
