Book now for the next RFCG EcoTour to Africa

11 Dec

Seeing Africa’s wonderful Weavers, Widows and Whydahs is our plan for the next RFCG EcoTour to Southern Africa. This tailor made tour will allow finch enthusiasts to admire these eclipse birds in full colour plumage of which nearly all are endemic to the African continent. These finches belong to the Ploceidae and Viduanae family of finches. The 22 day trip will be from 23 November to 14 December 2013, so book now and avoid disappointment.

Guests will travel in comfort to the world famous Kruger National Park, Zimbabwe and Botswana before heading back to Johannesburg and Pretoria to visit some of the best aviculturial facilities in South Africa. Accommodation will be clean and comfortable and every effort will be made by your hosts Russell Kingston and Eelco Meyjes to ensure that this will be an experience of a lifetime.

For more information contact Russell Kingston at indruss@bigpond.com or Eelco Meyjes at editor@avitalk.co.za. All profits are donated to the Rare Finch Conservation Group which is registered as a non-profit organisation. The RFCG is currently raising funds to support its planned phase 3 field initiative in Uganda to try and find one of Africa’s rarest finches the threatened and elusive Shelley’s crimsonwing.

This will be our last blog for the year so we would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank all our valued donors, sponsors and friends for their ongoing support and wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Prosperous New Year.
