Upcoming Tours

  • Resplendent Quetzal Honduras

Honduras, February 2023

February 21 - March 6, 2023

Honduras may still be a little known destination, but thanks to its privileged position at the heart of the Central American isthmus and its interesting geography, it has all the trumps to become the next big ecotourism destination: varied habitats, welcoming people, good infrastructure, and of course plenty of birds.

Namibia April 2023

April 8-20, 2023
$5,450 - $6,050

Located in southwestern Africa, Namibia boasts a well-developed infrastructure, some of the best tourist facilities in Africa, and an impressive list of breathtaking natural wonders: the vast Etosha National Park teeming with abundant wildlife; the petrified dunes of Windberg; and of course the Namib Desert stretching for over 2000 km along the magnificent Atlantic Coast. Namibia is an ideal destination for travelers seeking an unforgettable African experience in a uniquely beautiful untamed wilderness.

Uganda, December 2023

December 9-22, 2023
$6,500 - $7,800

Uganda is one of the most beautiful and biodiverse countries in Africa. From the papyrus-fringed Lake Victoria to the snow-capped Rwenzori Range to the extensive savannas around Murchison Falls, the “Pearl of Africa” boasts enormous habitat diversity and thus an incredible bird list! We will be guided by top female guides, thus supporting the Uganda Women Birders in their efforts to train women in nature guiding and birdwatching, teach children about nature and ecology, enhance environmental awareness among the public, and provide an avenue for women to secure sustainable employment alongside men in a traditionally male-dominated sector.
