Client comment

"Great overall experience. Best features were the gorillas and Chimpanzees and our guides, Terry Stevenson and Jay VanderGaast. To me, one of the most memorable events was the lack of unpleasant moments. Field Guides' guides always do their best to avoid them in every respect. It gives the participant a sense of security and the possibility of complete relaxation while birding. Looking forward to my next trip!"

TERRY STEVENSON: Field Guides Leader

Terry Stevenson, originally from England, has made Kenya his home since 1977. He is the senior author of the Field Guide to the Birds of East Africa: Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi -- the only guide in the region to have a text and maps opposite plates format; it has recently been released as an app, with the added advantage of making it possible to hear many of the calls. He is also co-author of Birds of the Horn of Africa: Ethiopia, Eritrea, Djibouti, Somalia and Socotra. Published in 2009, this acclaimed guide is the only one to this region. He is a member/advisor to the Bird Committee of Nature Kenya and the East African Rarities Committee. On November 30, 1986, he set a new World Big Day record with 330 species seen in one day in Kenya; the record stands today.

One of Africa's and India's foremost bird-tour guides, Terry has led numerous Field Guides tours across the African continent, in Madagascar, and in India. He is currently living in a mud-and-cow-dung mansion near Mt. Kenya. Terry's tours include East Africa (Kenya and Tanzania), Namibia and Botswana, South Africa, and Ethiopia. He'll also make a couple of favored detours to India as well as Hungary and Romania.
