Day tours from Mombasa or Malindi ( Kenia ) (1 Viewer)

Hello together,

is it possible to do day birding tours from Mombasa north or south or Malindi, for bird watching e.g. Shimba Hills reserve or Arabuko Sokoke forest ?
I think about beach holiday combinated with day birding tours.
Hotels will offer tours, but I think minimum 200 US$ per day and more for one person ?

How is about snorkelling, is it still good after coral bleech 2016 ?


Thank You very much.


Best regards
Dieter

Don't know anything specific for this site Dieter but sadly, in many places, $200 per person per day, often plus expenses, has become a benchmark fee for birders and Kenya is an expensive country in ecotourism terms.

Hi Dieter,
I birded the area on my own a few (10!) years back, and birding on your own was easily doable, but to see some of the scarcer specialities in Arabuko Sokoke, I hired a guide for a day, who also arranged for a car with driver.
The report can be seen here.

cheers

Jens
