Birds of the Wildebeest Camp

I flew in and out of Nairobi, and then took a bus seven hours to our field site. But while I was in Nairobi, I stayed at the Wildebeest Camp and if you are a birder, I highly recommend it. I got 25 life bird species within my first 24 hours of staying there. There is a little pond and lots of Australian trees and the birds just *love it*.

Here are some photos from the Wildebeest Camp (this is not a sponsored post, they have no idea who I am, I just love their birds).
