Kenya birds trip list: July 1994

This is our bird-list for the two-week 'Leopard' safari we did with Kuoni in 1994. We usually had a morning and an evening game drive each day in the parks. We added an afternoon trip into Nairobi National Park. We went the organised bird-walks at the Outspan, Lakes Naivasha & Baringo and Samburu Lodge. Please note that whilst we are keen birders, the main objective of our safaris is not to see as big a list as possible - we also want to see/photograph/draw animals and just 'appreciate Africa'.
