As we delve deeper in the countries we operate in, we are delighted to offer you a number of specialist trips, depending on your interests.

As well as our general wildlife holidays, we are delighted to offer you some more specific birding itineraries which provide you with a true local birding expert and a perfectly designed itinerary to allow you to see as many of the endemic bird species in an area.  We have also partnered up with award winning travel photographer Mathew Williams Ellis who leads our photography trips, with itineraries designed to develop your photography knowledge, awareness and skills.

We visit some of the most colourful and wildlife rich destinations across the world – with every destination offering something completely exclusive compared to the next. No one trip is the same as the other, and no interest or experience is portrayed to you in the same way…

As with all Pioneer trips we care about the places we visit and communities within them, we work with small locally sourced operators and design trips to ensure they are sustainable.
