Travel at a leisurely pace with no more than 8-10 like-minded companions ...
Travelling as part of one of our small group tours offers you a cost effective experience and a sense of camaraderie by travelling with like-minded people. The tours run on set dates and we have chosen times of the year that have the best weather or are particularly good for wildlife viewing and/or birdwatching – depending on what group tour you choose. Our tours are run at a leisurely pace, allowing you time to stop, watch and absorb your surroundings while not missing out on any activities or sights.
Our small group tours are run with no more than 8-10 people, but can be less. We use the very best local guides and for this reason, we usually don’t think it is necessary for our groups to be accompanied by a guide from the UK, which of course helps to keep the price down. However, there are exceptions to this and we will accompany groups if we feel it is necessary. The tours are well thought out and planned by us and our local agents. We have visited the hotels we recommend and have taken the tours and transfers to make sure everything is in place so that you can relax and enjoy a great experience.
