About Inglorious Bustards
Here at the Inglorious Bustards, experiencing the powerful event of bird migration has led to a life-long fascination with avian migration and #FlywayBirding. It’s no accident that we have chosen our base to be here in the Straits of Gibraltar. Our location between Gibraltar and Tarifa puts us right at the epicentre of birding in the Straits and for you an ideal location to join us for a day trip

Where to start. Firstly I cannot recommend 'bustards' highly enough. I have not long been back from my 3rd trip, which was supposed to be a weekend but I ended up staying an extra 2 days it was that good, and it certainly won't be my last. Both Simon and Niki are excellent guides, knowledgeable, fun, passionate about their work including commendable efforts towards conservation. Each trip is 'fluid', Simon uses the day's weather conditions to make sure full use will be made as far as sightings are concerned. Nothing is rushed and very much geared towards the guests requirements, whether ylu are, like myself as a photographer, I like time to get those photo 'keepers', or a keen birder. Accommodation is excellent as is the food which is all home grown and non GM wherever possible, and there's always a ready supply of beers etc at the end of a long hot day. Their knowledge of the area is also second to none so there's always a surprise in store on each trip. Until next time guys....🍺🦅🦅👍 Alan J. Derby, U.K.. (you can call me Al😉).

Thanks for your very kind review Al! Just to clarify (hope you don't mind) all the food we provide is totally non-GM and about 80% organic, local and extensively produced wherever we can. We like to work with local farmers who we know offering fresh seasonal produce from the natural park and whose actions actually benefit nature and the wider environment. I love your photos! they bring back some really happy memories and some brilliant nature, birding and photography and a lot of fun!! (call me Betty!) Saludos Simon

Just go if you can. Everything is done to make your birding dreams come true. Variety, colloquial knowledge, scientific knowledge... Niki and Simon are your guides. Beautiful part of the world, with coffee stops, delicious picnics, all show casing the wonderful food of the area. Feels right to support the locals and give something back and these guys make sure you do that. True eco tourism where it’s a win win all round.

Simon and Niki are clearly award-winning experts in the birding world, with hard-earned local knowledge and practical experience to boot, but all this is delivered with such joy, great storytelling and contagious passion for the wildlife that everyone from seasoned birders to first-time rookies can't fail to have a fantastic day out! I will never forget first seeing a griffon vulture so close that I could see the wind in her feathers. Thanks guys! What an unforgettable experience!

A full day (11hrs) out to see some of the birds that can be hard to connect with. The local knowledge and years of experience in the area paid off big time for us. Very good value and you also know that not only are you supporting a small local business you are also helping fund and support some great wildlife conservation in the area. Inglorious Bustards also have a great commitment to green tourism and are a rare example of where this is 'baked in' to all they do. They are also great company and supply some fine local food and wine. Highlights of the day were little swift, rufous bushchat, gull billed tern, slender billed gulls and many more.
