Honeyguide holiday calendar

There will not be a Honeyguide brochure for 2021 on account of the coronavirus pandemic, which both limits overseas travel and adds uncertainties that make planning difficult: a brochure is likely to be out of date very quickly.

Holidays and UK breaks will instead be promoted through this website. Keep an eye out for updates; the rest of this page gives a guide to plans for recent and coming months.

Weekly Honeyguide walks are being run in Norfolk when rule-of-six applies, with information emailed to Honeyguiders and a few others in this area. Highlights of walks to date are on the Honeyguide blog. Please ask if you'd like to be added to the circulation list.

Below you can see our holiday calendar in one place, check availability and click through to our holiday pages. For prices, look under the 'holiday details' for each holiday. For general booking information, click here. Last updated January 2021.

UK breaks

These are the three UK breaks set up for autumn 2020, which are kept here as these are frameworks for breaks that may be run if conditions allow.

Norfolk break x 4 with Honeyguide, September 2020. Four breaks successfully completed.
North Norfolk with Rob Lucking 13-15 November 2020 was fully booked, now cancelled because of coronavirus lockdown
Wild Essex with Chris Gibson 17–19 November 2020 was fully booked, now cancelled because of Essex being put into tier two (high Covid alert level) and later coronavirus lockdown.

Overseas, 2020

The Gambia, 4-15 December cancelled, coronavirus.

2021

Below are the dates for overseas holidays that were mostly planned before the coronavirus epidemic, in some cases now rolled forward to 2022, which will probably happen with more holidays.

Expressions of interest in holidays are very welcome, though we are not yet taking formal bookings for any of these as travel overseas is not possible at the moment. Other overseas holidays e.g. for autumn 2021 will be planned later.

If travel overseas remains difficult, we expect to run more holidays/breaks in the UK in 2021.

Below are links to friends and partners overseas, namely Geoff Crane in South Africa and Pau Lucio in Spain. We have run many holidays with both Geoff and Pau and they also run their own holidays. These links were on the Honeyguide 'home page' but they are here for now while the FCO is discouraging non-essential travel to South Africa and Spain.

Group holidays / archive

Additional group holidays or UK breaks (subject to the 'rule of six') can be arranged.

Destinations from previous years we keep on the website in the archive section.

They may be available for group bookings and others may return in a future programme – especially if we receive requests for them.

Gullivers Natural History Holidays

For two years, 2009 and 2010, we sent Honeyguide brochures to those on the former Gullivers mailing list. We continue to do so to those who have been in touch and are now on the main Honeyguide mailing list.

If you were with Gullivers, aren't getting the Honeyguide brochure but would like to, please contact us.
