Welcome to Honeyguide

I'm delighted you've decided to visit the website of Honeyguide Wildlife Holidays – about to start our 24th season. If you are looking for a quality natural history holiday, this is a great place to start.

Our web pages have our 2014 programme: click on any of our destinations on the left hand side. For prices, look under the 'holiday details' tab for each holiday. Our calendar has a summary of dates and availability. If you would like a Honeyguide Wildlife Holidays brochure, please contact us.

We are pleased to help with group holidays – even a holiday for half a dozen friends. Please browse our Nature notes too.

The Honeyguide Wildlife Charitable Trust goes from strength to strength. There is a conservation contribution with each holiday of £40, which goes through the Honeyguide Wildlife Charitable Trust. We are maintaining what we do to support nature conservation at a time of spending cutbacks.

This idea, still surprisingly rarely copied, remains a simple and effective way of helping to protect the wildlife we enjoy. Donations to conservation projects linked to our holidays in 2013 totalled £8,413, and our running total since 1991 is £91,615 (to December 2013). Through the Honeyguide Charity, the taxman tops up our contributions.

Holidays give the typical flights we use, but increasingly we arrange flights from airports near to where you live, or help with other arrangements. Carbon offsets are, as usual, part of each holiday’s price.

Rules about selling travel insurance mean if you want Honeyguide’s insurance you need to go straight to our broker rather than buying a policy directly from Honeyguide. Details are on our booking page and there is also help here on booking parking and hotels at airports.
