List of Birds sighted on our field trips 5 Day Birding package for Groups

Join us on a Birding expedition. Experienced guides help you identify the birds. Travelling in small numbers with guides who cut through the hassles of arranging transportation and locating ideal bird-watching spots, bird-watchers find the trip informative, economical and time saving, but most of all, a Grrreat birding experience. Don't take our word on it, check out what some of our guests have to say... An added bonus on these trips is the abundance of butterflies and other wild life. We supply binoculars on request. Most birders are happy to settle for one of our regular itineraries. However, we do arrange special individual or group packages on request.
