Here we will present to you some of the world’s most spectacular birding tours around the world. Our trips are for small groups of only 6-8 participants. Quality is of paramount importance to us; we prefer to use superior accommodation (where available at the top birding sites) and vehicles. Despite our focus on small groups and the fact that we err on the side of superior quality, our prices are competitive. We are passionate about birding and also about leaving a legacy – by genuinely helping people and conserving birds – for generations to come.
Monday – Sunday : 08:00 AM – 09:30 AM

Please kindly refer to our bird tour preparation blog for recommendation on what to pack for one of our birding tours.
Birding is something you can do in your own back yard (it’s a natural habitat too). Your local park. Anywhere you travel. Or on trips you take specifically to see birds that live in a certain environment, such as on a native prairie in North Dakota, or in the old-growth forest of the Pacific Northwest.
We usually use clean and comfortable accommodation with en suite bath/shower/toilet, hot water, and electricity, but in some countries this is not always possible. Please ask us about the accommodation for a specific tour – for example, in South Africa the accommodations are comfortable but in Ghana they are not! Typically, the accommodation and vehicles we use are a little more comfortable than what the average birding tour operator uses, but our prices are in the middle/average, meaning that you typically get excellent value on Birding Ecotours trips. But we also feel it is better to be in the middle of the best birding area, even if the accommodation standard is not as good as in a town that is further away from where the birds are.
While we try to find comfortable accommodation wherever we go, this is not always possible in all countries, and also we do not use overly luxurious accommodation, as most birders feel that would be a waste of money. But, on a private tour, you can dictate to us whatever you want – from camping to 5-star.
