Meet Paul, our Lead Kenya Bird Guide

I grew up in the Northern region of Kenya, Laikipia, an area rich in cultural heritage and wildlife, which prepared me and brought about my passion for wildlife. 

I’m an energetic and resourceful guide with serval years of experience in guiding. My main passion is birdwatching. Since a small age, I’ve been fascinated by Kenya’s rich avifauna diversity. I’ve been bird-guiding for many clients from all over the world, and cannot wait to show you what Kenya has to offer! Karibu sana!

Paul’s favourite bird is the Kenya endemic, William’s Lark.
