Honeyguide holiday calendar

There is no Honeyguide brochure for 2021 or 2022 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which both limits overseas travel and adds uncertainties that make planning difficult: a brochure is likely to be out of date very quickly.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 coming months.

Regular Honeyguide walks in Norfolk are running, 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.

We could also run walks in north Essex and south Suffolk with Honeyguide's Chris Gibson, if enough we can find several people who'd be interested. Please contact us if that might be you.

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, relating mostly to overseas holidays, click here. Last updated September 2021.

UK breaks and holidays, autumn 2021

Our first UK breaks were initially set up for autumn 2020, then again in spring 2021 (holiday reports here).
These will now be running in autumn 2021:

Norfolk break with Chris Durdin, 6 - 10 September 2021 (break successfully completed)
North Norfolk with Rob Lucking, 11 - 15 October 2021 (fully booked)
North Norfolk with Rob Lucking, 1 - 5 November 2021 (places available, subject to checking that there is hotel availability)
Wild Essex with Chris Gibson, 4 - 8 October 2021 (places available, subject to checking that there is hotel availability)

The Lizard, Cornwall, with David Collins 27 September – 4 October 2021 (fully booked).

If these become fully booked, we may run additional breaks. These and others may also be running in spring/summer 2022; expressions of interest are always welcome.

A Honeyguide wildlife guide may be available if you are visiting Norfolk: this already happens from time to time, dependent on diaries.


The return of international travel now looks likely, following the simplification of rules for overseas travel announced on 17 September. Many overseas holidays previously planned are carried forward to 2022.

We are now taking soundings to see if enough people are prepared to go on either of these two autumn holidays. We are not taking formal bookings for any of these until we are certain we can run a group.

Links in this section may be to holiday pages yet to be updated.

Autumn: these we can run if it's practical and there is interest:
Menorca 6 — 13 October

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 Foreign Office is discouraging non-essential travel to South Africa and Spain.

Group holidays / archive

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

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.
