Welcome to Honeyguide

Welcome to Honeyguide Wildlife Holidays, now in our 29th season. If you are looking for a quality natural history holiday, this is a great place to start.

Click on any of our destinations for late 2018 and 2019 on the left hand side. For prices, look under 'holiday details' towards the bottom of the page. If you would like a Honeyguide Wildlife Holidays brochure, please contact us.

Our calendar has a summary of dates and availability.

Windmills, La Mancha scarce swallowtail brown bear
Windmills, La Mancha; scarce swallowtail, Crete; brown bear (Ivan Nethercoat), Estonia.

We are pleased to help with group holidays – even a holiday for half a dozen friends. Please browse our nature notes too.

Some holidays run in the past are in our archive section, and many of these will return to the programme in a future year.

The Honeyguide Wildlife Charitable Trust goes from strength to strength. There is a conservation contribution with each holiday of £40, which goes through the Honeyguide Wildlife Charitable Trust. This idea, still surprisingly rarely copied, remains a simple and effective way of helping to protect the wildlife we enjoy.

Donations to conservation projects linked to our holidays in 2017 totalled £7,443, and our running total since 1991 is £125,490 (to November 2018). Through the Honeyguide Charity, the taxman tops up our contributions.

Holidays give the typical flights we use, but where practical we arrange flights from airports near to where you live, or help with other arrangements. Carbon offsets are part of each holiday’s price.

Rules about selling travel insurance mean if you want Honeyguide’s insurance you need to go straight to our broker rather than buying a policy directly from Honeyguide. Details are on our booking page and there is also help here on how to book parking and hotels at airports.

I hope you’ll want to find out more by exploring this website further.
