Seeing the lynx on our last day was a highight, as was the remarkable birdlife, exploring the scenery and learning about the local wildlife from our two remarkable guides.

Julie H went to Spain, Europe in February 2019

Excellent guides and a congenial group. Nick was exceptionally good at finding and identifying wildlife, with good sightings of Ethiopian wolves and turacos.

Martin B went to Ethiopia, Africa in February 2019

147 bird species was beyond expectation, mainly due to Gabor's top class knowledge and hard work. 40,000 cranes going to roost is a real spectacle.
