HIMA TO HIMA: a tailored luxury bird tour

Through reviving the Hima concept, we work on preserving the balance between nature and the diversity of species, while empowering the local community. Each Hima offers a specific biodiversity: in Anjar for example, we act to prevent the extinction of the S. Serin – Serinus Syriacus; in Hammana, you can experience the joys of watching iconic migratory species such as storks, pelicans, raptors, Egyptian vultures… We’ll visit exceptionally bird-rich hima’s or known for their endemic species.

We propose a one-of-a-kind trip dedicated to small groups of only 6-8 participants because quality is of paramount importance to us; and we prefer to use superior accommodation and vehicles. We propose sites where at least some of the following birds are possible to be seen – Syrian Serin, Sombre Tit, Eastern Orphean Warbler, Syrian Woodpecker, Cretzchmar’s Bunting, Mourning Wheatear, Yelkouan Shearwater, and depending on the timing a whole range of migrants flying during migration time.
