Discover Batumi's breathtaking natural beauty on a private birdwatching tour tailored exclusively for you. This unique experience offers a personal encounter with the awe-inspiring migration paths of raptors, set against the backdrop of Georgia’s lush landscapes. Expert guides, personalized service, and a thoughtfully curated itinerary ensure that your day tour to Georgia becomes more than a trip — it becomes a journey into the heart of nature itself.


Your adventure begins with an early morning pickup from your accommodation in Batumi, whisking you away in a private vehicle to the birdwatching sites, a journey of about 30 minutes (19 miles) by car and a short 10-minute walk. Nestled where the Lesser Caucasus mountains, blanketed with humid relic forests, meet the Black Sea coast, this location serves as one of Eastern Europe's most significant birdwatching bottlenecks — rivaled only by Veracruz, Mexico, and Eilat, Israel.

At this prime spot, you’ll have the opportunity to observe a vast array of bird species. Common buzzards are frequently seen, along with black kites, European honey-buzzards, and northern harriers, among others. On a good day, the skies are teeming with raptors; historical counts have recorded up to 812,000 raptors and around 3,000 non-raptor birds in a single season. The figures reached a staggering count of 1,000,000 raptor migrants and about 2,600 non-raptor migrants in another year.

Midday is marked by a hearty picnic in a scenic locale, where you can relax and enjoy the tranquility of nature. After lunch, the private tour continues to the Chorokhi River. A drive of approximately 30 km (about 19 miles) towards the Turkish border brings you to one of Adjara region’s beautiful gorges where the Chorokhi enters the Black Sea and forms a delta.

Despite some areas being impacted by human activity, the Chorokhi Delta remains an exceptional site for migratory waterfowl and passerines. Here, the blend of salt and fresh water flooding creates a unique ecosystem, supporting a diverse range of birdlife.

As the day winds down, you'll return to Batumi, filled with lasting memories of the sights and sounds of Georgia’s spectacular bird migration, a truly unparalleled private tour experience.
