Frequently asked questions:
What percentage of the holiday price that I pay will actually go towards conservation?
This will very much depend on the country, but it is generally between 2 – 5% of the total holiday price (per person) that we donate to a project. When multiplied by the number of people on the tour this is a significant amount going to conservation. Each tour itinerary clearly states the amount at the very top of the relevant webpage.
How can I find out what conservation work will be done in the different countries that Wise Birding Holidays visit?
Each itinerary clearly states what conservation work will benefit as a result of you joining a Wise Birding tour. To find out more about the conservation projects that we donate to, please visit the Conservation Projects section of this website.
How do I know that the contributed amount will definitely go towards active conservation work for the designated species or project and not just get forgotten?
Like you, we are keen to ensure that our donations are making a difference and as a result we will request updates on progress. These updates will in turn be added to the Conservation News section of this website or may be sent to you via an e-newsletter.

How do I reserve a place on a Wise Birding Holiday?
It is a simple three stage process that can be found here.
Why do Wise Birding Holidays not book flights?
Due to the vast choice and flexibility of the ever increasing on-line flight deals that can be found and because we do not currently have an ATOL we are unable to book flights for our customers. However, we do suggest airlines that travel to our destinations at the bottom of each itinerary webpage and we also have a contact at Trailfinders who can arrange any long haul flights for you.
If you do not book flights, how do I know where and when to meet with you ?
Once we have the minimum number of people required for the trip to run, we will send you a Tour Information Pack that will clearly state the meeting time and place. This is generally at the destination airport.
Do you have a Wise Birding Holiday brochure?
In order to keep costs to a minimum and allow us to be competitive, we do not currently have a brochure and all our holidays are only shown on-line.
