Birding at Ilkeliani Camp will be rewarding for both amateurs and experts. An early morning will quickly reveal White-browed Robin-Chat, African Paradise Flycatchers, Slate-coloured Boubou and Grey-backed Camaroptera, all of which are common around the tented accommodation.
Along the Talek River in front of the camp, it is common to find the Golden Weaver, Common Sandpiper, African Pied Wagtail, Grey-headed Malachite and Woodland Kingfishers. The ubiquitous Egyptian Geese are also sure to make an appearance. Look up and try to pick out Little and White-rumped Swifts, Brown-throated and Banded Martins, Mosque and Lesser Striped Swallows and then Black and White-headed Saw-wings.
