About Our Main Guide
Born and brought up in Nairobi, the capital city of Kenya at the proximity of the World`s City Park, Nairobi National Park, Peter Wairasho is a renowned safari guide in the region. His frequent visits to this park, local museums and various leadership roles in school Wildlife Clubs, triggered his passion for nature at a tender age. He is a trained Safari / Bird Guide, whose engagement in several ornithological research and safaris under freelance capacity has earned him intimate knowledge of the African wilderness, be it the Flora or Fauna including the Big 5, Small 5, Avian World, among others. His devotion to the avian world always puts him on the front line of the Bi-annual Waterfowl counts.
The tours that Peter is conducting:
- Moreover he engages in Bird Ringing/Banding with the Nairobi Ringing Group and in Tsavo West National Park with other International Bird ringers. He is part of the Raptor Road Survey Team under the Peregrine Fund and the Raptor Working Group of Nature Kenya. He has served as the Kenya Bird Map Project Assistant, a project that is mapping the distributions of Kenya’s bird species since the year 2013, and he continues to contribute data and administrative support to the project to date. He has also helped run the Fundamentals of Ornithology course, in the past, which trains both amateur and professional birders from Kenya and other African countries. As an all rounded naturalist, he’s enriched his knowledge by taking several courses on Ethnography, Natural History, Prehistory, Herpetology, Ornithology, among others. He is a Co-author of ‘Being A Bird’ and currently holds a Bronze level badge with the Kenya Professional Safari Guides Association
Our conservation Ethos
- We are committed to ensuring that our safaris support wildlife and biodiversity conservation. Our guides have been involved in various conservation initiatives in Kenya including the annual water bird census conducted by the National Museums of Kenya, Nature Kenya and the Kenya Wildlife Service. Some of our lead guides like Peter Wairasho was the vice chairman of the Youth Committee of Nature Kenya (the East Africa Natural History Society) from 2007 to 2011.
As the climate crisis deepens, businesses and consumers are joining nonprofit groups and governments in a global tree planting boom. Last year saw billions of trees planted in scores of countries around the world. These efforts can be a triple win, providing livelihoods, absorbing and locking away planet-warming carbon dioxide, and improving the health of ecosystems.
But when done poorly, the projects can worsen the very problems they were meant to solve. Planting the wrong trees in the wrong place can actually reduce biodiversity, speeding extinctions and making ecosystems far less resilient.
