KAZAKHSTAN

Kazakhstan is the ninth largest country in the world and is completely landlocked. It is a country famous for its vast steppes and deserts, these lands combined with attractive large wetlands and picturesque snowcapped mountains offer many interesting habitats for birders and nature enthusiasts. The country is very intriguing for birdwatchers during spring migration when enormous numbers of birds migrate north to their breeding grounds in Russia – Siberia. Kazakhstan is also a wonderful destination during the summer months when immense numbers of butterflies and flowering plants dominate the dazzling landscapes. We offer several tours visiting most parts of the country, please enjoy our trips here below.

KIRGHIZIA

Kirghizia or sometimes called Kyrgyzstan, is centrally located in Central Asia and is rather unknown to the outside world. It is a gorgeous mountainous country that is easily compared to a known European nation like Switzerland. It is very popular amongst hikers and climbers but along with some fantastic landscapes it also has some very interesting wildlife. The best months to visit are June till September when the valleys are green and when the mountains passes are free from snow. As Kirghizia is lacking large steppe areas that are ideal for birds, we decided to focus on this country mainly on butterflies, botany and photography tours for which it is excellent. Kirghizia has a very mild winter compared to its surrounding nations and the winter is a good time to visit the country for its famous Golden Eagle Hunting traditions. We organize a new photo trip visiting the local Berkutshi, as they are called, of south Yssyk Kol.

MONGOLIA

Mongolia is a known land of open spaces and gorgeous steppes, acclaimed for its outstanding lights and excellent photographical options. Our tours focus mainly on the western side of the country in the renowned Mongolian Altai. In this mountainous terrain we are in search of the most sought-after mammal on this planet, the Snow Leopard. Furthermore, the avifauna is stunning and offers great birding during the migration periods in May-June and August-September. As mentioned before the lights are stunning and we are preparing a photographical journey that soon shall be represented on this page. Please enjoy our trips here below.

RUSSIA

Russia is the largest country on our planet and it offers a great wealth of natural treasures. We at RBT are focusing mainly on tours and expeditions to Siberia. We are organizing endeavors from the wonderful Altay Mountains in the west to the wetlands in the Amur. The north offers great possibilities to find appealing species such as Ross’s Gull, Great Knot and Siberian Crane. We are planning more scouting trips in north east Russia in search for Spoon-billed Sandpipers and Amur Tigers. Our tours visit most parts of Siberia, please enjoy our trips here below.

TURKMENISTAN

UZBEKISTAN

Uzbekistan is rather different then its surrounding neighbors, the neighbors were nomads and Uzbekistan’s culture was based on several large city states with Khans (emperors) whom ruled the lands surrounding the cities. The ancient Silk Road was a major trading route passing by these city states. The states developed and grew into centers of trade, science and wealth. With pleasure we will take you on a road of discovery to the ancient cities Bukhara, Samarqand and Tashkent. The wildlife in Uzbekistan is as well unique with many bird species occurring only here such as Finch’s Wheatear, Yellow-breasted Azure Tit and the magical Pander’s Ground Jay. Our tours focus on the culture and the special species of Uzbekistan. Naturally we also focus on photography tours in these wonderful lands full of culture and beauty!
