FIONA REID’S WILDLIFE ENCOUNTERS
All my trips are custom-designed to provide you with the best possible encounters with wildlife that each destination can offer. Unlike many nature tours, we pay special attention to the mammals, while also enjoying all the birds, reptiles, plants and other creatures we can find.
We stay in the best places available, from beautifully situated eco-lodges to first class hotels with extensive gardens and other natural attractions. We travel in small, friendly groups that I lead with the help of local biologists and/or knowledgeable local guides.
I have been leading nature tours for 25 years, and I am taking you to the countries that I know and love. You are assured of a safe, comfortable and well organized journey, full of memorable wildlife experiences. I hope you can join me.
