Group tours – essentials for small groups Blue Elephant organizes tours for small groups, ranging from 4 to 8 people. To avoid disturbing birds and other animals as much as possible and to allow the guide to pay adequate personal attention to all participants. This also allows greater opportunity to meet personal needs, such as photography.
Quality and safety are paramount at Blue Elephant. All Blue Elephant tours are carefully prepared so that the entire process from start to return is as comfortable as possible. Quality also means that we do not hurry. Observing is more important than hiking or quick trips. Slowly so there is time for photography and enjoy. For air travel, we strive for direct flights. Accommodations are clean and well kept. In most countries Blue Elephant co-operates with local conservation organisations. They provide the local guide who knows exactly where we can find the birds and where to be to do best observations.
Travel guidance All group tours are accompanied by enthusiastic and knowledgeable tour guides from the beginning to the end of the journey. For individual tours a guide will accompany you only if you desire a guide. They are not only the superb bird guides, but they also like to share with you knowledge about habits and culture of their country. A bird or nature tour is purely enjoying. For that special bird or nature tours Blue Elephant has an annual programme of familiar and new destinations.
