We are very pleased to be working with tour leader Matt Collis, for this short break to South Devon. Matt was born and raised in Devon, so he is very familiar with the areas to be visited during the tour and passionate about sharing the wildlife of his home county.

The celebrated ancient forests and wetlands of Belarus are now more easily accessible after the relaxation of visa restrictions.

Belarus is one of the least developed countries in Europe and a paradise for naturalists. The country is home to tracts of primeval forest that once stretched across the European Plain and with many lakes, meadows and waterways this sparsely populated land supports such iconic mammal species as Bison, Elk, Wolf, Lynx, Wild Boar and Beaver.
