Birdwatching is a great activity to do in so many countries. Even in countries where you don't expect it to be any fun, trust us, it still is. Going on a bird watching activity during you holiday it's wise to be well prepared. A good preparation goes into clothing, equipment and mind set. Read about the subject, and ask questions on your local travel agent and inform your fellow travelers as well about what to expect. Most important which goes for many countries are the i3, the Important Three. These are good walking shoes (to avoid blisters), mosquito repellent spray and of course binoculars. Make sure these are from high quality and lay well in the hand. These can be a bit on the heavy side but it's a well worth investment to buy or rent and bring on your birdwatching holiday.
Of course you have to be well prepared to go on a bird watching trip. And it's wise to do you research also on what types of birds you may expect as this fuels the interest and search. There is a difference between solely bird watching or also taking photos on a higher level. Taking photos of unique birds is a bit different from what you might be used to in your local area with more of the same birds hanging around in the same area. It's adviced to bring a list of possible birds and good equipment. A tripod could be nice, but a tripod with a 'monopod' function is more suitable as you can move around faster and easier to place it and take a quick photo. Also the lenses are important. Invest in a sharp high quality lens, but also one which is strong and can handle tough love, especially when you jump in the back of a truck.
