The tropical islands of Trinidad and Tobago in the southern Caribbean are situated just off the coast of North-eastern Venezuela. It is this archipelago’s unique position, combined with a mixed terrain ranging from coastal plains to mountains, which make this such a superb birding destination. Our tour covers the important sites of these beautiful islands utilising fantastic accommodations in prime birding habitat, including the world-renowned Asa Wright Nature Centre. This is birding at its best, and a perfect introduction to the Neotropics for those new to the region, combined with everything the seasoned birder could want. Some of the many resident specialties we can anticipate on this adventure include a breeding colony of prehistoric-looking Oilbirds, Bearded Bellbird, the breathtaking Scarlet Ibis, Tufted Coquette and the Critically Endangered endemic Trinidad Piping Guan. Photographers should also come prepared to be overwhelmed, since not only do these islands offer an impressive diversity of colourful birds in the form of macaws, toucans, tanagers, motmots and hummingbirds, but many of the views are simply spectacular and photographic opportunities abound!

The tour price is however fixed only in US$, and the actual cost in the other currencies listed will be adjusted according to prevailing exchange rates at the time of final invoicing (usually 4 months before the tour.) The same applies to approximate flight and single supplement rates, which are also quoted in the respective fixed currency.
- Rates are based upon group tariffs; if the tour does not have sufficient registration a small party supplement will have to be charged.
- Furthermore, these costs are subject to unforeseen increases in tour related costs and may have to be adjusted as a result.
- Lastly, we may be forced to change or alter the itinerary and / or the designated tour leader/s at short or no notice due to unforeseen circumstances; please be aware that we will attempt to adhere as close to the original program as possible.
