Bargain Birds

These are action-packed, long-haul birding holidays offering outstanding birding and excellent value for money.

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

S. & P.H,

Throughout the trip food was varied and plentiful, even for us vegetarians. Cliff Waller was an excellent, well organised and empathetic leader. Omar was an excellent cultural guide and ambassador. He handled tricky situations with sensitivity and good humour. The driver was an amiable, patient and most obliging person who took frequent demands for ‘Stop!’ all in his stride. Finally, we enjoyed the company of the other group members. Their knowledge of birds, and sense of fun, helped to make this a memorable and enjoyable experience for us both.

I saw about 363 species during my stay, of which some 213 were new to me, and included 19 Ethiopian Endemics.

Abiy Gednee was excellent in every way. He knew his birds and their calls and was helpful and instructive in the field. I would definitely go on another trip with this guide.
