Lake Victoria Gems and Beyond – Welcome to Western Kenya! You’ll arrive in the morning to start exploring the much more relaxed lakeside city right by the shores of the world’s second-largest water body, Lake Victoria. 

We will begin our birding by exploring one of the nearby swamps and even venture further into the swamp on a canoe boat. Returning back to the mainland, we will enjoy the boardwalk in search of some papyrus endemics before investigating the Kavirondo escarpments for some amazing bird species.

From the lakeshore city, we’ll cross over to Rusinga Island expecting more rewards from the lakeshore species. Gwassi Hills combined with Ruma National Park will boost our birding spirit further before we proceed to Kakamega Forest for its unique species and drive to Rift Valley lakes that are well known to have some of the best birding experiences in Kenya.  Our birding experience will come to an end in Nairobi after sampling Nairobi National Park just on the outskirts of the city.

Travelling During COVID-19
We're committed to ensuring our holiday experiences remain safe for everyone — for our travelers, our Experience Leaders, and experienced guides, and the communities we visit along the way.

Oluokos Signature requires all travelers and Experience Leaders/Guides to be fully vaccinated, and we also follow recommendations from the World Health Organization and the World Travel & Tourism Council’s (WTTC) Safe Travel protocols.

Do you arrange airport transfers?
Airport transfers are not included in the price of this tour. As a way of saying thank you, once you book any holiday experience with us we will offer you a complimentary airport transfer upon your arrival and also on the day of your departure. In this case, our representative will be at the airport to greet you and also to see you off after your holiday experience. To arrange this please contact our customer service team once you have a confirmed booking.
Departure Time
On our day of departure, breakfast will be served early. Traditionally, all accommodation facilities will be serving breakfast from 06 – 10 hours. However, on request, most of the accommodation facilities will be more willing to serve your breakfast earlier. Generally, Oluokos Signature activities depart from your hotel at 0700 hours thus giving you enough time to enjoy your breakfast.
About meals and dietary needs
We will try our very best to accommodate all dietary requirements but in some out-of-the-way places, it can be very difficult to guarantee. We will let you know if there are places on your itinerary where this is the case. Please let us know at the time of booking of any food requirements or allergies and we’ll pass the information on to your leader.
Type of vehicle
This heavily depends on how far and on the conditions of the roads that we shall be undertaking. The fact is that if we’re going to move, there’s a good chance you’ll be riding on a vehicle. We will be sharing with you the final information for the specific type of transportation to be used during your activity. Please remember that we will pick you up from your hotel and transfer you back after the activity.
