Butterfly Watching Holidays
Who can fail to be delighted by butterflies – the intensity and variety of their colours, their delicate beauty and fascinating life cycles. Our tours allow butterfly watching enthusiasts to observe marvellous species all around the world. Sadly, butterflies are in decline in many regions; to help prevent the loss of these beautiful creatures, our butterfly holidays make a direct contribution to their conservation.
Our butterfly specialist recommends …
I’d recommend ‘Butterflies of South Africa’. On this butterfly holiday we look for butterflies in the Wajkkerstrom (montane grassland), which supports a wonderful diversity of species. Closer to home I’d suggest our ‘Butterflies of Hungary ’ tour, or ‘Butterflies of Croatia’ for unspoilt landscapes and a density of butterfly life rarely seen in western Europe now. - Tom Brereton

WHAT YOU'VE BEEN SAYING ABOUT OUR Butterflies HOLIDAYS
Tom McJannet was a very knowledgeable birder, he made sure that everyone spotted the birds on the walks. He was very helpful and made sure that we were all very comfortable. Karel, the local guide, was very good!! He informed us each morning of our daily agenda, helped in communications with the local staff, and made excellent arrangements for our stay in Mexico. We were a very happy cohesive group, we all got along with each other exceptionally well. Not only do I feel that the group were travelling companions, but they are also friends. I had a wonderful time and the trip met my expectations. At the end it seemed like it passed all too quickly!
I am most grateful that you gave the go-ahead to out recent butterfly trip, despite the small numbers. It was most enjoyable, with mostly good weather and good numbers of butterflies and birds seen. Martin is an excellent birder... Paul Huckle,... is very experienced and came well equipped. Distinguishing the butterflies is much harder than for birds!
I have wanted to see the Monarch Butterflies hibernation sites – one of nature’s greatest events – for many years, and this tour surpassed my expectations!
