To complete your bird watching holiday, before you go book a trip to a bird sanctuary, park or attraction where you can get up close to birds in their natural habitats and have an experienced local guide point out some of the must-see species. Many bird parks are also involved in conservation programmes so you know your admission fee is being put to good use. Making your own arrangements can often work out cheaper than booking an organised bird watching holiday. Find out more about organising your own tailor-made bird watching holiday.
