We are Sustainable Birding

Established in 2016, our relentless dedication to all things birding has proudly positioned us as a pioneering birding tour company in Africa. As of 2024, we will also be offering exceptional Birding Tours across Latin America, with Asia destinations coming in the second half of the year. All our birding tours have been crafted through first-hand experience and are expertly guided by our passionate, knowledgeable and experienced tour leaders.

For all our destinations, we offer private tailor-made birding tours. From small groups to large groups, to 3 days to 30 days we have you covered. Speak to one of our experienced birding experts to design your dream birding holiday – it’s what we’ve been doing best for 8 years. We also offer small Scheduled Group Birding Tours which run annually on set dates and explore the world’s prime birding areas.

As an ecotourism company, we’ve implemented several initiatives, ranging from carbon scoring and offsetting to collaborating with sustainable properties. Additionally, we actively engage in supporting local projects that empower communities and safeguard avifauna and wildlife.


What our customers think of their birding adventures

  • We spent 15 days with Sammy in Kenya, doing nothing else than birding all day. What a great experience we’ve had! Sammy is a true jewel, knowing the Country, it’s National Parks and all the secret places where we found and photographed so many new (and even some endemic) bird species. We came home with thousands of wonderful pictures and lots of great memories! Wishing Sam and his Team all the best for the future! I am sure I will be back and I hope I will go with the sustainable birding company!

  • I just came back from a custom made 12 days bird photography tour with The Sustainable Birding Company. And what can I say? It was phantastic! Everything was great: the accommodation, the driver (Thanks to Sammy, the driver with whom I always felt safe and secure!), the very experienced bird guide Sammy (who is such a gentle man as well!) and the birds! I am sure I will be back and I hope I will go with the sustainable birding company

  • Everything about this company was excellent. I had a good correspondence with Sam, the owner, who was prompt, informative and very helpful. We did the Nakuru/Masai Mara safari with Paul, who was an outstanding guide – very knowledgeable, courteous, patient with the kids, and always smiling. The guides knew exactly where to find the birds, which is truly impressive (imagine being able to distinguish between the dozen cisticola species by sight and sound, all of which looked alike to me!).
