Kenya and Tanzania, 22 September - 21 October 2010




Fatbirder's Top 1000 Birding Websites


From September 22nd until October 21st 2010 we made another trip to Africa.
Also this time Daan Krantz joined us during this African adventure.
We landed in Nairobi, Kenya, where we picked up our rental car and drove straight to Namanga border post to enter
Tanzania. We spend 26 days in Tanzania, before we re-entered Kenya and bird a few days at some familiar spots there.


In the more then 3 weeks we spend in Tanzania we travelled all over the country.
The first week we used to explore the northern mountain areas aswell as the dry parts that are in between them;
we visited locations such as Arusha National Park, West and East Usambaras and the coast near Tanga.
The second week we explored the south, visiting places like Mikumi and Ruaha National and Kilombero Valley.
The last week we did a "more regular safari-holiday" by visiting the famous places as Serengeti National Park,
Ngorongoro Conservation Area, Tarangire National Park and Lake Manyara.


In Kenya we only birded some places in the central highlands near Nyeri and the Aberdares with the last two days (again!) being at
Crayfish Camp, Naivasha, where we birded the lake. And have to say, it was good to be back...!
