Bargain Bird Watching Holidays
Our bargain bird watching tours suit keen birders who want an active, fast-paced birding holiday with a dedicated focus on searching for birds rather than on looking at the area’s other wildlife or cultural highlights. We offer a wide selection of long-haul holidays to many destinations in South America, Africa, Asia, Australia and elsewhere.
Our birding specialist recommends …
I’d recommend our ‘Nepal’ holiday visiting Chitwan National Park and Koshi Tappu Reserve, and ‘India – Bharatpur & Chambal’ within Asia. Try ‘Ecuador – Cock-of-the-rock’ for a superb introduction to Andean birding, while, if you want a bit of luxury, the accommodation we use on our ‘Zambia’s South Luangwa National Park’ tour is top class. - Paul Stanbury

WHAT YOU'VE BEEN SAYING ABOUT OUR Bargain Birds HOLIDAYS
The accommodation was far better than I had expected - there was always running water, the meals were good too with a good choice always available. The staff at the Awash campsite did an excellent job, they were all friendly and helpful. We thought that the itinerary was well thought out ... the information provided before departure was good too.
Great trip to a little known country. Reg very good/excellent. All went smoothly. Final night in hotel worked very well. Excellent list of new birds.
Andy was superb, one of the best leaders I've met. I was lucky to be in a very congenial group with a similar degree of interest and experience in birding, and Andy was great at finding birds for us, and doing his best to get us on to them. And there were no extreme listers who had to see everything, so the atmosphere remained friendly and civilised throughout. On top of that, the logistics all worked well, the lodge and food were very good, and even the weather played its part, with virtually no rain and no excessive heat! And we saw loads of great birds.
