NatureScape Tours takes birders and naturalists around the world to enjoy the sights and sounds of nature, while at the same time experiencing the cultural specialties of the area. We lead clients not only locally and within the United States but also to Mexico, South Africa, Central and South America, Canada, and more. Tours can be custom designed for that special trip of a lifetime!
Our various tours meet the needs of birders with different levels of experience and enthusiasm. From the beginner to the experienced world traveler our customized tours will suit your personal style assuring arewarding birding experience. We can arrange tours for birders who have limited exposure in a region, and who would like to spend more time in one area learning about the new families of birds. At the other extreme, on some of our more intense trips we can show you some of the planet’s rarest and most difficult species.
We began leading birding tours more than 25 years ago and our approach has always been to concentrate on finding the endemic, impressive, rare, local or difficult to see birds. Spending more time in quality habitat searching for unusual species insures that the more common species are easily encountered along the way. Although birding is always first and foremost on our trips, we can usually offer a variety of other nature-based activities along the way.
While many companies profess to offer custom tours, few are able to efficiently arrange a trip around your personal target list of birds as effectively as NatureScape Tours.
As owner and primary Tour leader, Kim Risen has been guiding birders since he was in high school. His many years of experience and dedication to learning about birds shows in his ability to find birds and show them to each of his clients. His vast array of knowledge is obvious as he describes and points out key features of the birds, animals, butterflies and plants during his tours. Travelers, whether a beginner or seasoned birder will all come away with new appreciation of the world around them through traveling with NatureScape Tours.
