ConQuest’s expertise is possibly the best you can get when birding in Kenya
After our excellent experience two years ago, we were eager to join Mwangi (ConQuest) once more for a birding trip in Kenya. This time we decided to join him for 12 days, which is double the time from 2015. The extension demonstrates our faith in the quality of the services Conquest has to offer.
In July, we visited more than 5 national parks, all having different biotopes. Mwangi makes an effort to offer good accommodation. He helps us in deciding whenever the accommodation is simple, but close to remote parks or great locations (some fancy resorts are just not in the right spot). As mentioned in our first recommendation, Mwangi knows his birds, but he also keeps an open mind for support from the local experts. That is how we met Nathaniel Mkombolah who showed us the Striped Pipit. And we joined Albert Baya, who found the Sokoke Scops Owl for us. We are sure that Mwangi can find those Pipits and Owls on his own, but he prefers to support local guides and preservation organisations. We value such cooperation. Moreover, it also saves time, which can be used for adding another location to the list of biotopes.
Mwangi is not our first guide. We’ve travelled the world and met many experienced birding guides. But he’s probably the best we’ve ever met. Mwangi has hooked us to Kenya and we are sure to contact him again for another visit.
Superb birding guide
I wanted to take full advantage of a weekend between meetings in Nairobi andd Naivasha, and set my sights on Lake Elementatia. I foundwith Mwangi through Birding Pal and contacted him. He advised me on where to stay in order to get the most out of a very brief visit (Oasis Eco Camp). Once there, Mwangi expertly guided me through a wide range of different habitats and hepled me spot and identify an unexpected number of species in just a few short hours. Before we parted ways, he helped me get on the right matutus to reach my destination in Naivasha.
On time, on budget, on the bird!
Mwangi wa Gitu, from ConQuest Adventures sacrificed his Christmas weekend to guide my wife and I around the south shore of Lake Elementiata. Mwangi was working his home patch: he knew every song, every call, every flash of color. That end of the lake is lovely, surrounded by good acacia woodland, less developed and less visited than the more well-known Rift Valley soda lakes. We enjoyed both flamingos (dozens, not thousands) and large groups of white pelicans doing their cooperative feeding maneuvers. Life birds for me included Curlew Sandpiper, Purple Grenadier, Little Rock Thrush, Red Fronted Barbet, and Coqui Francolin.
Mwangi also shared great insights into the complex local situation with property owners, cattle herders, and resorts all competing for influence over the few enforcers of conservation regs. He was a delightful companion, an expert naturalist, punctual, and affordable. We look forward to our next outing with him.
Memorable birding experience with Conquest Adventures
My friends and I had a great birding experience at a coastal forest in Kenya thanks to Conquest Adventures. We visited Shimba hills Reserve for a week and Charles, our tour guide was very helpful. His skills in identification of birds through sight and calls was quite admirable and we learnt a lot from him. He could also point out other animals that we came across which we really appreciated. Conquest Adventures also organised our accommodation and transport from and to the airport. They are very professional in the way they handle their clients and we would definitely recommend them and seek them again in our future trips to Kenya.
Great option for visiting Nairobi National Park and David Sheldrick
I went on a tour with ConQuest Adventures to Nairobi National Park and David Sheldrick on the same day and it was a wonderful experience.
The guide and driver picked us up from our hotel early in the morning and we had an amazing safari in the national park, which lasted about 5 hours. Right after the safari we went to David Sheldrick and then lunch in a great restaurant, which by the way, was a perfect birding spot.
The guide and driver kindly dropped part of our group in the airport, and the rest of us at the hotel.
The tour price was very reasonable and completely worth it! The guide Charles Mwangi and the driver were excellent and knew a lot about the animals.
