Fatbirder - linking birders worldwide... Wildlife Travellers see our sister site: WAND

Birding Tour Companies

Travel

Revised 2016

The following links are to those that cover numerous destinations. Where companies are confined to small geographical locations - single countries, vert few countries or even parts of countries, they appear on the appropriate geographical page. So, if you already know where you want to go you may want to look at those pages first and scroll down to the relevant section then scroll within that section to see the local specialists and, in the case of companies I know well, international companies that also travel there.

Better still take a look at Fatbirder's 'companion' website: Wildlife And Nature Destinations (WAND); it lists hundreds of destinations and over two hundred tour companies, as well as individual guides and ecolodges. You can search by destination etc. It' s one of the best places to trawl when organising a bird trip. But why not start by seeing what Fatbirder's own company Anytime Tours has to offer. We organise trips for individual Birders, couples and small groups and also have experience creating trips for birders with mobility problems (in conjunction with the access charity which I founded Birding For All).

Otherwise take a look at what else is on offer. There are hundreds of companies now specialising in green or eco-tourism… many are specialist birding holiday companies. They vary greatly in scope, price and skill.

For those wishing to organise your own trip why not follow some of the advice given at the Eco-travel centre?

As a traveler, you will have an impact on the environment and culture of the place you are visiting. It is our objective to provide you with the necessary information, tools, and guidelines to make this impact positive! Keep these Golden Rules in mind when you travel:

Learn about your destination before you get there.

Read guidebooks, travel article, histories, and/or novels by local authors paying particular attention to customs such as greetings, appropriate dress, eating behaviours, etc. Being aware and sensitive to these customs will increase local acceptance of you as a tourist and enrich your trip.

Follow established guidelines. Ask your ecotour operator, guide and/or the local authorities what their guidelines are for limiting tourist impact on the environment and local culture. Staying on trails, taking your litter away with you, and maintaining set distances away from wildlife are a few ways to minimize your impact in sensitive areas - Take Only Photographs, Leave Only Footprints.

Seek out and support locally-owned businesses. Support local businesses during your ecotravels to ensure maximum community and conservation benefit from your tourist dollars.

We are delighted by what seems to be success in both categories: we have a large and loyal following, many of whom have been on 5, 10, or in some cases, dozens of tours with us, and these clients, in turn, are our greatest advertising--most of our new clients come to us by word of mouth via a friend who suggested they must try a Field Guides tour.

Gallery

At the southern tip of the continent, South Africa and the neighbouring countries display an amazing wealth of climatic and ecological zones. Savanna, grassland, forest, desert, karoo scrub-land and fynbos are combined with cold Atlantic and warm Indian Oceans. This splendid diversity of landscapes is home to an incredible variety of plants and animals, including nearly 1 000 bird species. It is no wonder that this part of the world - with its well-developed infrastructure and easy travelling conditions - has become one the world`s Birding Hot Spots.
