The Late Kevin Mlay is the founder of Natural Life Experience, a Safari/Birding Company based in Arusha. He was born on the slopes of Kilimanjaro, in the Marangu district, in 1972. Since 1995, when he first went on an East African Natural History Society bird walk, he has made dramatic progress in natural history in general. He worked as a volunteer with Kenya Museums, moving through the Entomology, Ornithology and Botany departments before pursuing his passion for Ornithology, in which he received his diploma. Since then he has been involved in many important studies including being team leader for water bird counts in the Selous Game Reserve, on behalf of the National Museum Department of Ornithology. Amongst Kevin’s many other achievements are his four year stint working for bird author Don Turner at his company, now named Origins Safaris, in Kenya. Kevin was an excellent general wildlife guide with over 15 years experience in both Kenya and Tanzania. He left his wife Ruth and his two sons Mkaro and Furaha. A highlight of his career was finding a Rose-coloured Starling, the first record for Tanzania, whilst on a birding safari.
