Natural Encounters is devoted to bringing you to the best the birds of the world have to offer.Whether it’s a breeding colony of thousands of shore birds or the feeding spots favored by elusive hummingbirds in the highlands, ornithologist and naturalist Greg R. Homel can get you there–and get the birds into your sights.
And it’s about more than birds. Birds “guide” the tour, but you’ll experience the full spectrum of wildfauna–and flora–that the world has to offer. From ruffed lemurs to whale sharks, Natural Encounters offers the adventurous traveler exciting opportunities to witness ecosystems and species in landscapes increasingly endangered by the intrusion of human habitation and industry.
Small groups of typically no more than six participants ensure that everyone will share in each expedition discovery and have the full attention of Greg and an expert local guide. If photography is your passion, bring your gear and let Greg tutor you in the art and science of wildlife photography.
Adventure doesn’t have to mean roughing it. First-class accommodations and meals will help to maintain your energy for each vigorous day, no matter where in the world Natural Encounters guides you.
All of this is made possible by Greg’s personal, knowledgeable leadership and his hand-picked team. Greg has been showing birders the best the natural world has to offer for more than 20 years. Let him share his expertise and enthusiasm with you on your next vacation!
