We believe the best way to plan a bird watching holiday is to do it yourself. Booking your own accommodation, flights and transfers and choosing your own itinerary means you can be flexible and can customise a holiday to your requirements.

Once you've arrived you can take your time to settle in and familiarise yourself with the local area and people before embarking on trips to see birds in their natural habitats either by yourself or with a local guide. You'll be able to do things at your own pace and if you want to spend some time visiting other tourist sites and attractions or have some downtime at the beach then you'll have the freedom to do so,

Below you'll find everything you need to plan and book your perfect bird watching holiday. If you would prefer to go an organised bird watching holiday then please take a look at our holiday directory where you can find companies who specialise in birding tours around the world.
