Disnaring Patrols

In the beginning of this year 2012 lumo together with David Sheldrick have incorporated their efforts towards the disnaring programme. The team of rangers has been able to remove some shares which have caused a lot of harm to wild animals.

Ornithological Walk

With over 1,070 species of birds, Kenya has the second-highest country bird list in Africa, while the area around Tsavo West boasts 600 recorded species. Ranging from giant herons to tiny sunbirds, the diversity of African birdlife is startling in its colour and vibrancy. Additionally, the Lions Bluff area boasts a number of endemic species, such as the globally threatened Taita Thrush, Taita White-eye, Taita Apalis, Abbott's starling and the Southern Banded Snake Eagle.

Highlights of the birdlife include those of the semi-arid zone, such as ostrich and golden pipit, while perhaps the most conspicuous are the white-headed buffalo weaver and the brilliantly plumaged golden-breasted starling. Raucous hornbills are also prevalent as are such hole-nesting birds as parrot, barbet and roller.

For the amateur and serious ornithologist alike, we offer a range of half or full day outings which can be custom-tailored to the interests of your ornithological party. The services of a professional ranger and up-to-date bird checklists are included, and picnics, bush lunches, camp suppers and sundowners can be scheduled to suit your needs.
