May 2021 - Post Covid-19 Tours - Travel remains problematical due to Covid-19 but vaccinations will hopefully make travel safer and more feasible in the coming months. Even so, our destination countries are lagging behind with vaccinations and the virus remains an issue. Many countries continue to restrict entry, typically by requiring PCR tests prior to entry, and return flights to the US currently also require negative tests prior to departure. The situation is fluid and will hopefully improve in coming months. We hope that tours will again be feasible by 2022 at the latest. Meanwhile we are monitoring the feasility of conducting a few tours in the fall of 2021. These will depend on how conditions on the ground transpire over coming months.
September 2020 - Post Covid-19 Tours - 2020 has been a difficult year for everyone, especially guides, drivers, and birding lodges in our destination countries. Most tours have been canceled due to Covid-19 since March of this year. As a result, there will be pent-up demand for tours in 2021. For this reason anyone wanting to do a tour in 2021 should book early to ensure guide and accommodation availability. This is especially true for departures beginning in August or later.
