What customers say about Whitehawk Birding trips


“Took a 12-day birding trip to Cuba with Whitehawk Birding. Whitehawk excelled at organizing the trip, local guides, accommodations, etc. We were able to see every single viable endemic bird in the 12 days–and 178 species in total.  Great way to explore Cuba and experience fantastically productive birding. Cannot say enough positive things about a Whitehawk Birding trip.”
Portland, Oregon

“My experience in the search for the snow leopard was more than I could have asked for. Trekking in the Himalayan mountains, discovering a vast new landscape, spending time with great people from Whitehawk Birding and the local Ladakhi people made the trip go by way too fast.”
