Sabaki River Mouth Bird Walk

on Monday, 04 October 2010. Posted in North Coast, Environment, Travel, Wildlife, Community

I have always wanted to walk theSabaki River Mouth. I have also always believed in the old adage that if you want to get something done the best way to achieve it is to do it yourself.

The Sabaki River Mouth is where the Athi, Tsavo and Galana rivers that rise and converge in upcountry Kenya ultimately disgorge their heavily silted waters into the coral reef fringed seawater of the Indian Ocean five kilometres north of Malindi. This convergence in turn provides one of the richest feeding grounds for birds in Africa and the Sabaki River Mouth has rightly taken its place as one of the Important Bird Areas (IBA’s) in Kenya.

In October, particularly,  the recently arrived Palaearctic migrants waders congregate in their tens of thousands, some before dispersing southwards down the coast, but many are content to winter in this coastal food larder, mingling with the resident herons, egrets, gulls, terns and the numerous other species that frequent the lagoons, reed-beds, and sand-dunes adjacent to the river mouth.
