    Canary Islands logistics

    Thanks for the info. I was wondering if doing 3 islands means a lot of time in airports, on planes and picking up hire cars?

    Canary Islands logistics

    Hi I'm planning a trip for May 2018. The plan is to do Tenerife and Feutureventura and clean up the endemics. We hoped to ferry between islands but there doesn't seem to be many options for taking a car and leaving it on a different island (plan is to fly into Tenerife and fly out of...

    Collins Birds Guide App.

    The company doing the Collins Bird Guide isn't the same company that did The Birds of East Africa. Bad news for Android users is that they have no plans for an Android version, although they say they haven't ruled it out for the future.
