Upcoming women's tours

Our brand-new women-only bird tours are run by a female Ornis leader working exclusively with the most talented female ground agents and local guides from Africa and Asia to Europe and Latin America. Our hope is that this initiative will help give the visibility and support these fantastic guides deserve, in a world of birding tours mostly dominated by men.


Bringing you enjoyably short and comfortable highlight birding tours to exciting countries, we can connect international groups of like-minded women birders in a safe and welcoming space. Please feel free to send our team a message if you would like any additional information or advice about this special set of bird tours by women, for women.
