Holidays for groups

As well as our main programme of holidays, Honeyguide is very happy to look after groups from natural history societies, RSPB local groups and other groups with an interest in wildlife.

The benefits for group organisers include:

  • the work involved is running a group holiday is shared, tailored to your needs
  • bookings go through a recognised tour operator with ATOL protection, offering financial security and so taking away this risk from the organiser or local society
  • Honeyguide can supply wildlife leaders, information and a holiday report

The style of Honeyguide Wildlife Holidays is particularly suited to many local groups, as we do much more than just birdwatching. Yes, we offer expert bird leaders, but also attention to flowers, butterflies and other natural history – see our holiday reports – with nice places to stay, good food and a relaxed pace.

We have been pleased to run holidays for RSPB local groups in Cambridge, Richmond & Twickenham and Woodbridge, for the Colchester Natural History Society, the U3A Cambridge bird club and the Ancient Tree Forum, plus some 18 holidays for the Salisbury & District Natural History Society.

But a 'group' could equally easily be just a group of friends: for example in the Spanish Pyrenees in spring 2011 and spring 2013, Bulgaria in June 2012, and the Dordogne in May 2013. Where to? The well-rehearsed options for us are our current and previous destinations (see our archive section for past destinations), but we like trail-blazers too ... where would you like to go?

Another option is through Your South Africa, a way of putting together a wildlife holiday that suits you. Ideal if you'd like to enjoy South Africa's natural riches, including Namibia. Click on the pictures for more.
