Not far from Manguo Swamp is Limuru Swamp. This swamp is not on the Nairobi-Naivasha highway, but you need to drive through Limuru town after which you come to the swamp. Here you get to see species like Black-winged Stilt, Red-billed Teal, Sacred / Hadada Ibis, Little Stint (Aug-May), Ruff (Aug-May), Green Sandpiper (Aug-early April), Wood Sandpiper (Aug-early May) and Bronze / Golden-winged Sunbird.

My name is Shailesh Kumar Patel, I was born and brought up in Kenya and started birdwatching in 1996. I have 12 years experience and because of this experience, as a guide, I can locate difficult species such as Sharpe’s Longclaw, a Kenyan endemic. To learn more about species present tryAfrican Bird Club .

If you would like to know more about me and my fees go to Our Explorer testimonials and view clients comments. I guided Bram Piot (Switzerland) twice, and in Nairobi National Park on one day we recorded 107 species. Another client Andrew (South Africa) has also placed comments about my guiding at Kenya Bird Watching .
