Wildlife holidays in Georgia
The Republic of Georgia is a sovereign state situated in the Caucasus region of Eurasia, at the junction of eastern Europe and western Asia. It was a member state of the Soviet Union until independence in 1991.
The imposing Caucasus Mountains form a natural frontier between the vast Russian Federation to the north, and Georgia.
The Caucasus Mountains sweep from the Black Sea to the Caspian Sea, while the central region of Georgia is characterised by a distinctive steppe habitat. Forest, marsh-forest and swamp are among the country’s other habitats. It has a very diverse climate.
Our Georgia specialist recommends...
"I recommend our ‘Birds of Georgia’s Steppes & Caucasus Mountains’ for the special montane species of the high Caucasus Mountains and the lowland birds of Georgia’s steppe habitats."
