My husband and I highly recommend Cisticola Tours in general and our guide Alex Mwangi in particular. We have been on many birding trips and this was one of the best we’ve ever had. Everything was arranged perfectly, and unfolded smoothly. Alex was a terrific guide. We really appreciated not merely his extensive knowledge of birds (as well as other wildlife), but also his patience, good humor and willingness to help us learn. All-in-all, we had a wonderful 10-day tour!

We booked an afternoon birding tour to Nairobi National Park on the first day of our recent visit to Kenya, taking advantage of a day of rest in Nairobi at the beginning of a longer safari booked with a different company. We only booked this tour with a few week's notice and we're so glad we decided to do so. Diana was an amazing guide and spotter, and in the roughly four hours we spent in the park, we saw more than 70 species, had many excellent photo opportunities, and wished we could have stayed longer. All interactions with Washington during the booking process were very friendly, fast, and professional, and the organization of the tour itself with pick-up and drop-off at our hotel went exactly as planned. I highly recommend this experience for anyone looking for a fantastic guided birding experience while in Nairobi.

We booked a 1 day birding trip to Arusha NP with Cisticola tours. Our driver and guide were Boniface and Martin. We had a wonderful experience. Martin and Boniface were extremely knowledgeable about flora and fauna. We saw many different species of birds as well as animals. The trip was well worth the cost. It was a full day of birding. Very enjoyable!!

Fantastic experience!! Hands down one of the best safari experiences I've had. From the organisation of the tour through to the tour itself everything was handed smoothly, professionally and tailored to suit. We did the Nairobi National Park excursion and saw over 60 different species in a matter of hours Special thanks to Maureen for coordinating the tour and to our guide and driver Alex who provided exceptional knowledge and insight into the birds, their calls, habitats and behaviour. Would highly recommend, the photos speak for themselves

Cisticola tours is extremely flexible and customer focused. We had a brilliant time on their 'Coastal Birding Tour' and clocked up over 400 species in 12 days as well as incredible views of mammals especially at Amboseli and Tsavo. Too many highlights to mention but the nightbirds and the Secretary Birds ranked really highly. Washington and his team go out of their way to get you the birds that you want to see. We also saw 12 lions, a Cheetah, White ands Black Rhino, tons of close up Elephants, Giraffes and Zebras and upto 1o species of dee-. Not to mention the Golden Rumped Elephant Shrew in Sokoke - a bizarre creature! I can highly recommend Cisticola tours. The accommodation can be varied to suit your price bracket and in Washington you have an extremely knowledgeable wildlife enthusiast. Probably one of Kenya's top birders.
