In this age traveling becomes more and more important to people around the globe. To keep an eye on nature and to balance tourism and nature conservation, BirdsConTour initiated the “Travel gives Wings” division.
By traveling directly with BirdsConTour or making use of a guide from BirdsConTour you support bird conservation and create an economic platform for local livelihoods. Sometimes travelers also participate in another BirdsConTour project. To say THANK YOU, every tour participant receives a Bird & Birder Friendly Award at the end of the tour.
36 German-speaking guests were rewarded with one penguin-rated Bird & Birder Friendly Awards:
Two separate tours with members of the Carmina Burana & Africana choir, one to the Onjala Lodge and N/a’an ku se wildlife sanctuary and one to Sun Karros Daan Viljoen, both guided by BirdsConTour, took place on the
11th of March and the 13th of March 2014.
