Forthcoming Tours

Namibia
5 - 18 February

Namibia has just become one of the very few places in Africa to be removed from the list of countries covered by the UK government travel ban on non-essential travel. This means that individual travel insurance as well as our own liability insurance would now be valid. In addition there is no longer the requirement to self-isolate when returning to the UK from Namibia. Our tour in February is still open. Namibia has everything going for it as a great wildlife destination, with stunning birds, some fantastic mammals, wonderful scenery and superb lodges.

The Solomon Islands, east of Papua New Guinea, offer one of the few remaining places on the planet where we can still well and truly get away from it all. Seemingly forgotten by time itself, many of these islands are home to tiny coastal villages, where the main mode of transport is dugout canoe, and fishing on reefs by hand is commonplace. Still very much off the tourist map, this region has long proven difficult and expensive for birders to tour…until now. This tour, with its optional extension to the islands of the Western Province, provides you with the opportunity to see some 70+ endemics and 20+ near-endemics together with a huge array of regional species unique to this tropical paradise.

 

 

 

New Short ‘Covid-aware’ Tours in the UK

We are very pleased to announce that we are teaming up with former Sunbird leader Dan Brown, who together with his wife Rachel, have formed their own company, Wild Discovery. Dan and Rachel are offering a series of short tours within the UK and these can be booked through Sunbird. These are different to our usual tours in various aspects: to help maintain social distancing, the tours will be self-drive with participants providing their own transport and choosing who they wish to travel with. Some tours will include accommodation on half board, while others have no accommodation or food included, allowing particpants to chose where they want to stay. A tour information pack will include all the information you require, including suggestions for accommodation and vehicle hire, as well as details on meeting points etc.
