Tour Pace & Walking
Our Family tours are dedicated to the enjoyment and appreciation of specific bird families. Whilst we will certainly not ignore other bird families and species, we will not be going out of our way to find them. These tours are slower paced, allowing for as much time as appropriate to be spent in hides, feeders or similar such sites. There are rarely early starts or late finishes to the day. These tours are suitable for all birding interests and experience levels, avid photographers and in some cases can accommodate those with mobility or health challenges.
Ease of Birding
