From: John Gabriel, Johannesburg, South Africa.
“Hi Chege, Maurice and I have talked about our day with you in the Nairobi National Park on many occasions. From a birding point of view it has been the high point of many years birding and I know that I have boasted about it to many people over the past six months. Your knowledge of the birds and of the park made it a truly memorable experience for which I want to thank and compliment you. To see more than 150 species in a day is spectacular, and when leopard and cheetah are added to the day's viewing, it becomes even more so”
From: Josep del Hoyo, Spain, (Editor, Handbook Of The Birds Of The World)
“Chege was very knowledgeable on every site that I visited with him and we succeeded in videoing several difficult birds.”

Birdwatching East Africa (BEA) is one Kenya’s best kept secrets. Chege wa Kariuki and his staff are the best there is to offer for game drive, birding, photography, and mobile tent camping safaris. They create unique adventures for birders and photographers providing unparalleled opportunities to see many of Kenya’s bird species, numerous mammals, including the big five. The staff are very knowledgeable, friendly, courteous and provide in depth information about Kenya’s wildlife, habitats and people. The camp staff is unsurpassed. Their chef provides wonderful meals made from produce from local farms, and the campsites have comfortable tents, showers and toilets, and are a very safe environment for clients. These are just a few of the reasons we use Birdwatching East Africa as our guide and outfitters for birding and photo safaris when in Kenya.
