NEW **Special Photography tour – winter 2011/2012


In this special new tour photography is the main focal point.

A photography tour is very different from a standard birding tour, and from our experience birders and photographers don't work well together on a group.

We have fine tuned an itinerary that covers most of Israel's hotspots from a photographer point of view. The tour focuses on raptors and water birds in the Hula valley and the Golan Heights, special wintering species in Israel's southern deserts      (up to 4 species of Sandgrouse, desert residents and rare winterers) and endangered  species like White-headed Duck, Sociable Plover and more.

We will practice cautious approach to birds, learn about the advantages and problems of strong light and exposure, and take the time to get the perfect shot. We already ran two tours of this nature and they were a great success.


These are only several examples of tours we are already running, the programs are flexible and we can fine tune any tour for your specific birding needs.

Whether you are into listing, specific bird families, specific species or specific regions we will custom build a program especially for you, for an unforgettable birding holiday.
