Welcome!

Located in the coastal hills of Andalucía just outside the picturesque Spanish town of Tarifa, the Inglorious Bustards are based right at the epicentre of birding in The Straits of Gibraltar. And from a migrating raptor’s point of view, we must surely also be at the centre of the world!

Inglorious Bustards are birders, conservationists, travellers, and all-around Nature-lovers. We love to marvel at the hundreds of thousands of birds that pass overhead, and to follow them on their migratory journey, exploring the whole range of fascinating and varied terrains they traverse each year.

And we love to share our adventures with you!  As well as our home in southern Spain, we take pride in bringing you the best of birding in Andalucía and other migration spectacles along the East Atlantic Flyway journey, through Europe and North Africa, right down to the steamy wintering grounds of many of our nomads, south of the Sahara.

If like us,  you enjoy amazing wildlife spectacles where adventure meets relaxation, fun, sustainability and flyway conservation then you have found the right place!

We’re more than just a birding and nature tour company. We care about the wildlife we showcase, the local communities we visit and the opportunities for education through exploration. That’s why we’re excited to announce that we’re a Top Ethical Birding Ecotour company 2019, 2020 and now 2021!

We have turned traditional so-called “eco-tourism” on its head, putting conservation action and education at the very heart of what we do, not just as a guilt-assuaging afterthought to our trips. #FlywayPromise
