Lycian Wildlife Trek in Turkey

A unique look at the magnificent wildnerness of Lycia through the eyes of our guide, Christian Kollinsky, a trained biologist and local wildlife expert. The programme involves several walks, some quite long, all based at a very comfortable mountain lodge located in Beycik village at an altitude of 800m below the precipitous south face of Mt Olympos – Tahtali 2365m. Lycia has the highest biodiversity in the Middle East.

Rwenzori Mountains

The Rwenzoris – also known as the fabled “Mountains of the Moon” – lie in Western Uganda along the Congo border. Their snow-capped equatorial peaks rise to a height of 5,109m, while lower slopes are blanketed in moorland and rich montane forest. Most of the Park is accessible only to hikers although the magnificent scenery and 19 Albertine Rift endemics would be ample reward for bird lovers.
