FIONA REID’S WILDLIFE ENCOUNTERS
All my trips are custom-designed to provide you with the best possible encounters with wildlife that each destination can offer. Unlike many nature tours, we pay special attention to the mammals, while also enjoying all the birds, reptiles, plants and other creatures we can find. You can go watch birds with hundreds of tour companies, but not that many specialize in mammals and nocturnal outings.
We stay in the best places available, from beautifully situated eco-lodges to first class hotels with extensive gardens and other natural attractions. We travel in small, friendly groups that I lead with the help of local biologists and/or knowledgeable local guides.
I have been leading nature tours for over 30 years (my first trip was Jamaica in 1986) and I am taking you to the countries that I know and love. You are assured of a safe, comfortable, and well organized journey, full of memorable wildlife experiences. I hope you can join me.
To sign up for one of these tours, or if you have any questions, please contact me through the website.
