If a basic bird tour will just not do it for you, then here is the perfect solution. It comes in the form of bird photography tours. You will still get the same amount of birding to take advantage of in a foreign destination but there is a photography course attached within as well. It makes sense that these 2 activities would go together as they do complement each other perfectly. The full itinerary of bird photography tours is laid out along with tour dates and destination. From here, you will get an idea of what exactly is going to happen during each and every day along with the possible birds that can be seen in each area. If you are happy with these details, then you can go ahead and book your spot. Do so quickly. It does not matter if you cannot string along someone to accompany you, and in fact it will be better this way, as you will be part of a tour group that is looking for the exact same sort of adventure that you are. Bird photography tours can take place anywhere on earth.
Book into a well-known company for all of your bird photography tours so you know that you would be in line to not just a quality trip bird wise but also get access to the better end of accommodation and meals during the trip. This way, you will also know what calibre of guide will be conducting the trip. For birding you would want someone with a vast experience in the field but also to local species in the area that you are visiting. You need their knowledge on the area so that you may bypass the search portion of birding. Of course it will still be a little search but you would have a substantially narrowed down location to deal with making for a greater chance of quickly finding the species that the area is noted for and then moving on. You must realize that you only have a limited amount of time during bird photography tours so having an expert guide along allows you to see many more species of birds than if you venture out yourself to try and find them for yourself. In certain areas, you cannot even venture out into certain prime birding locations without being under the watchful eye of a trained guide.
For photography, you want someone who has been around the block and is able to teach you all aspects of wildlife photography. With bird photography tours, it is done twofold. During the times when birding is not really productive, photography classes are conducted back at the lodge or campsite. Here the instructor will lay out the theory behind the camera itself and the many techniques. It is out in the field where these techniques are then applied, under the watchful eye of the photography guide. With a small group, they are able to give detailed and intricate advice to each member of the group, thereby accelerating the learning process. All camera equipment is provided and guests get to keep all photos that they take during bird photography tours.
