Naturally, we spend most of our time in the field but this does vary with each tour. In East Africa, birds are most active from dawn till mid-day and in the early evening hours till dusk, hence we start birding at this time. We usually arrange coffee or tea before going out and come back mid-morning for brunch. We return to birding late afternoon when bird activity starts again. To balance early starts we try to return earlier in the evening. Before dinner, we have drinks and go through the daily log of birds observed.
We endeavor to stay in hotels, lodges, and family homes as close as possible to areas of birding interest. Wherever possible, we stay in accommodation reflecting the character and atmosphere of the country we are visiting. Rooms have private facilities unless otherwise stated. In some locations without a tourist infrastructure, facilities may be shared.
Hotels around the world are phasing out single rooms and accommodating clients in double/twin rooms. This has, in effect, pushed up the price of a single room quite considerably. If you have a ticked twin-bedded room on your holiday booking form but we are unable to find you a suitable roommate, a single room supplement will apply.
Food is important to our clients and is on a half-board basis of breakfast and evening meals with a packed lunch in the field. We try to ensure food is based upon the cuisine of the country we are visiting.
We offer holidays in Uganda, Rwanda, Kenya, and Tanzania. Please contact us for your custom holiday trip.
