My tour offers - are aimed at tourists, birdwatchers, photographers, videographers and nature lovers who are interested in the flora and fauna of the Republic of Cyprus.
As your personal companion, I'll bring you to the latest hotspots and also give insight into to my just running recording projects with certain bird species. My location is the municipality of Pegeia - Agios Georgios directly on the Cape Drepanum and at the entrance to the Akamas Natura 2000 protected area.
As a vehicle I use a Land Rover Freelander 4W Drive for my tours. In many situations, the car is also the best hiding place for birdwatching and bird photography. Usually I take a maximum of 1 - 3 people on tour, otherwise it will be uncomfortable.
When touring with photographers, I attach great importance to personal care, therefore only individuals or a maximum of 2 people if they know each other and have the same photographic goals.
Info - where is what to see:
Around Paphos you can find about 70% of all bird species that can be found in Cyprus during the year are the birdwatch in spring - January to the end of May and in autumn August to December. In the period from April to August, many migratory birds are also dedicated to the island's breeding business. In June there are also a large number of wall sailors who have their ancestor breeding grounds in the Old Town areas in Paphos.
Limassol, Akrotiri Salt Lake, Zakaki Marsh, Akrotiri Gravel Pit and Akrotiri (Fasouri) Marsh.
Here you can find ducks, cranes, divers, waders, herons, flamingos, birds of bird with wasp-bush in a bird train, worms, Kings, eleonora of hawks, barrels and meadows, bee eaters and of course many singing birds living in wet and reed areas.
Larnaca Salt Lake, Meneou and Pikni Beach with the smaller salt lakes behind the airport, Oroklini Lake, ducks, divers, waders, herons, flamingos, Seagulls, fish eagle and much more are found around the Salt Lake and the Oroklini Lake, the breeding areas of the Black-winged Stilt and Spur-winged Lapwings and many other species. Note: Oroklini Lake is a well-implemented Natura 2000 Projekt, in which many species of birds can also be used during the winter period.

Endemic species such as the Cypriot Jay, Tannenmeise, Forest Tree runner and spruce cross, Cypernstein, Amsel, mister throttle, juniper rossel, singer throttle, finch and many more in a uniquely beautiful landscape in the highest mountain region of the island. Unique nature with rare protected grassy areas and ancient trees up to 1000 years old. The temperatures above in the mountains are very different from the beach areas. Snow and frost in the winter months are normal. A 4-chair lift for skiers in winter is available and more and more hiking trails are opened.
