About Us

SWALLOW BIRDING is a Birdwatching and Wildlife holiday company based near The Saltmarsh Coast in East Anglia.

ATOL - Government Guaranteed Protection
ATOL is a licensing scheme for travel companies which is operated by the UK's Civil Aviation Authority.

It provides financial protection to over 28 million consumers who book air holidays and flights with tour operators and travel organisers each year.

Peace of mind because you can book with confidence
ATOL regularly carries out financial checks on the travel companies it licenses every year.

If the company you choose to travel with is ATOL protected, it means the money you pay for the holiday is safe. If the travel company fails, ATOL will provide a refund or allow you to complete your holiday and bring you home. There are no extra charges for this protection.

All the flight-inclusive holidays on this website are financially protected by the ATOL scheme. When you pay you will be supplied with an ATOL Certificate. Please check it to ensure that everything you booked (flights, hotels and other services) is listed on it. Please see our booking conditions for further information or for more information about financial protection and the ATOL Certificate go to www.atol.org.uk/ATOLCertificate.

As it is difficult for us to obtain accurate quotes for airfares, our prices are broken down into two elements. The first being the basic ground price of the tour which includes everything except flights and the second element is the flight price which will be our best estimate of the airfare when we cost the tour.

After booking the flights we will send you your final invoice for the tour, charging you the exact airfare and hoping it to be near the price quoted on our website.

We use regional airports including London Stansted, London Heathrow, London Luton and London Gatwick which offer a great selection of flights.

Group Size
Our ethos of having small groups means that everyone gets the chance to see all the birds and wildlife whilst having a great experience.

Group size varies from 8 to 14 clients and when over 8 clients we have 2 leaders so not to compromise on personal attention.

Trip Length
Our tours offer clients a great choice of destinations with a variety of tour lengths from 2 nights through to 10 nights which offers something for everyone!
