What customers say about Gayuin Birding Tours ?

Our highly targeted custom birding trip in southern Morocco was absolutely outstanding. My wife and I are world birders with large life lists and needed some 30 birds in the region. Based on our success in previous tours with major birding companies, we figured we might get 23 of them. But the incredibly precise knowledge of Brahim Mezane about the birds and their habitats in this area resulted in us getting good views of 31 lifers! And we got excellent photographs of many of them, including the Pharaoh “Gayuin” Eagle-owl, the Thick-billed Lark and the critically endangered Waldrapp, or Northern Bald Ibis. Brahim also made sure we had excellent accommodations and food (Moroccan food cannot be beat!), and he arranged for us to get some interesting insights into the Berber Bedouin culture from which he comes.
We highly recommend that any birder looking for a superb trip anywhere in Morocco contact Brahim and his company, Gayuin Birding Tours / www.gayuin.com

Wir waren vom 31. Oktober bis 11. November 2016 mit Brahim Mezane von Gayuin Birding Tours im südlichen Marokko unterwegs.
Es war eine wirklich phantastische Tour: Alle Wunscharten gut bis perfekt gesehen (bis auf die Rennvögel, die aber zu der Jahreszeit offenbar weiter im Süden sind), erstklassiges Guiding (Brahim weib, worauf es ankommt), sichere Fahrten mit einem Kleinbus, schöne Unterkünfte, wunderbare Küche – es passte einfach alles!
Wer Marokko und seine aufregenden Vögel erleben will, dem kann man Gayuin Birding Tours nur warmstens ans Herz legen. www.gayuin.com

We booked the desert day trip during our birdwatching trip to Morocco since, unfortunately, we did not have a lot of time around Merzouga. During the well-organised tour Hamid of Gayuin Birding Tours was able to show as all “key bird species” as well as many more and we enjoyed a fantastic day in wonderful company. Thanks again!

We look forward to birding with you. Gayuin Birding Tours Team !!!
