My tour offers for bird photographers-bird watchers

My offer is aimed at bird photographers and bird watchers who want to discover or photograph the bird life of Cyprus during their family holiday on the island. When I come into contact with bird photographers, I am always interested in what lenses and cameras are brought along and also how to imagine the bird photography here on the island. So I can tell you some tips and suggestions before the trip starts.
It is not to be forgotten that we have on the island on the left and the hotspots are usually not easy to find and also not easily accessible.

My offer therefore: as your personal guide and nature photographer I bring you to the hotspots in selected tours. My location is Paphos – Pegeia at Cape Drepanum, entrance to the Akamas protected area. I use a Land Rover Freelander 4w drive for the tours. In most cases, the car is also the best place to hide for bird photography. I usually take a maximum of 1-2 photographers on tour.

If you have booked your accommodation within 40 km of my location, I will pick you up from your hotel in the early morning (approx. 5:00 pm), so that the destination is always reached before sunrise. In the afternoon at 15:00 o'clock we go back again. Depending on the tour, it is also advisable to arrange a meeting point from which the tour starts.
