From Tropical Birding

We’re Not Your Average Tour Company

A level of expertise is not needed to join our trips, but enthusiasm is

Our goal is to have as many people getting as much joy out of birding as possible. Although our guides can hold their own anywhere in the world, you will never feel intimidated by our guides or other clients. They all understand that the trip is about seeing birds and having a great time, not by showing how great we are to others.

Most of our trips are in the tropics

The world is filled with incredible birding destinations, so we have decided to concentrate on those areas that can be tricky for most people to visit alone. The tropics support 80% of the world’s bird species, and the diversity and numbers of birds can at times be overwhelming. Birding can be tough with many similar species in the same flock, and with others so secretive that they can only be located by voice. We have built up a storehouse of knowledge on where to find some of the world’s rarest birds, and our tours offer the finest birding on the planet. You will finish your trip not only with plenty of birds, but also with a real understanding for the areas you have visited. We also do many trips to other areas outside the tropics, but all these sites are ones where we think that we can really add value to your birding experience.

We are the company that actively supports bird conservation

We do not just give lip-service to protecting the threatened birds our livelihoods depend on; we are active in all aspects of bird conservation. This not only involves generation of funds for purchase of endangered habitats, but also includes consulting for conservation organizations, training guides, and establishing the avitourism industry in developing nations. One project that some of our staff members are near fanatical about is getting more people into casual birding. There are no short term payoffs to our guides for this, but we believe to our very core that getting more people into birding is the ultimate way to get more people to preserve these creatures.

We offer the best value birding tours on the market

We have managed to strike a balance by providing world-class tours without charging outrageous prices. While this is not the means by which we differentiate ourselves from the other operators, it is a pleasant side-effect of being the most efficient operator in our target destinations. A quick comparison with other companies will show that while we still stay at the best lodges and have top guides, we retain our more competitive prices.

Birding Tours

Tropical Birding has been operating birding tours since our inception in 2001, and we offer a wide range of trips to destinations all over the globe. Our trips are led by expert guides who are themselves passionate birders and naturalists. Some of our tours are fast-paced trips that target every possible endemic, whereas others are more relaxed-pace trips with a stronger focus on other types of wildlife or cultural activities.

Custom Tours

Please contact us, and we will be happy to design an itinerary to suit your needs. If you can get a few friends or family members to come with you, you might be surprised at how inexpensive these tours are, and they offer you the flexibility of choosing when, where and with whom you travel.

Photography Tours

Tropical Birding offers a series of Photo Journeys to the best destinations on the planet for bird and wildlife photography. On these trips we get you to where the animals are, and we do whatever we can to get the animals to you. The objective of these trips is not to instruct on how to use a camera, and much of the photography is opportunistic. We’ll always be out at the best times of day for photography, but will not necessarily stop shooting just because conditions are not optimal.
