Singita Grumeti Reserves boasts an exceptional selection of bird life. There are enough eagles, vultures and other large birds to keep the novice birders interested and an excellent array of smaller birds for the expert birders.

If you’ve seen a Bateleur eagle fly you’ll know that this name perfectly suits its unsteady flying style. The eagles always manage to look slightly unbalanced, just like a tightrope walker.
