These tours can be to virtually anywhere in the world and can include accommodation, vehicle hire (with drivers where required), best birding sites (reports from previous tours), routes (maps, etc.), books (best field guides), local guides or leaders from the UK (from day trips to whole tours), flights and sailings, information (visas, health and security) and every other aspect. Birdfinders has already organised successful group tours to a variety of destinations (e.g. Israel, Lesvos, Texas, The Gambia, the French Lakes, Norfolk and the Isles of Scilly) for a number of RSPB groups and ornithological societies. Birdfinders can also supply articles, including photographs, for your magazine or newsletter to advertise your tour. For further information, please contact us.

Choose any accommodation from The Gambia Experience brochure and Birdfinders will book it as agents at no cost to you. If you do not book your accommodation/flight through Birdfinders we regret that we have to charge a nominal fee of £25 per person to cover the considerable cost of telephone calls and faxes to The Gambia. Day trips are available for £25 per person with a minimum of £80 per vehicle per day and a three-night/four-day up-river trip available for £150 per person with a minimum of £400 per vehicle. Additional days up-river are available at £50 per person per day with a minimum of £100 per vehicle. All trips include reliable transport and an expert local bird-guide but not food or entrance fees. The up-river trip also includes accommodation for participants, guide and driver but not food, ferries or pirogue trips that must all be paid locally.
