In this age traveling becomes more and more important to people around the globe. To keep an eye on nature and to balance tourism and nature conservation, BirdsConTour initiated the “Travel gives Wings” division.
By traveling directly with BirdsConTour or making use of a guide from BirdsConTour you support bird conservation and create an economic platform for local livelihoods. Sometimes travelers also participate in another BirdsConTour project. To say THANK YOU, every tour participant receives a Bird & Birder Friendly Award at the end of the tour.
Cleaning sessions during the tour are part of the "BirdsConTour for a cleaner Bird Habitat" project. This time the corner of the C24 and MR47 road (Namibia) was cleaned from litter.
Twelve German-speaking guests were rewarded with one penguin-rated Bird & Birder Friendly Awards:
Gilbisch Petra & Rudolf
Heinz Carmen & Jürgen
Heutling Sylvia & Hans-Jürgen
Madl Ute & Herbert
Winkelmann Daniela & Dr. Daniel
This Caprivi Tour, organized by Pack Safari and Chamäleon Reisen, took place from the 07 th of October until the 19th of October 2013.
