After 35 hugely enjoyable and successful years in the bird tour business, Chris & Barbara Kightley, partners of Limosa Holidays, are sad to announce that they have taken the decision to wind down Limosa this autumn due to the impact the ongoing coronavirus crisis is having on world travel. We will not be operating any more tours.

If you have a forward booking with Limosa, then you should already have received a written communication from us, informing you of our decision to retire and advising that we are in the process of making refunds to all customers in respect of payments made to Limosa for holidays not yet taken.

[If you have a holiday booked with Limosa and did not recently receive a letter or email from us, then please contact our office via:]

In closing, we should like to express our heartfelt thanks to all Limosa customers - past and present - for travelling with us over the years and for sharing our passion for birds and birdwatching the world over. From our humble beginnings in Norfolk back in autumn 1985, Limosa is proud to have gone on to become recognised as one of the world’s leading specialist operators of birding and wildlife tours.

It’s been quite a journey - and undeniably hard work, often involving long and unsociable hours - but also with an immense amount of fun and laughter along the way.

So it’s a huge THANK YOU to everyone: from our wonderful loyal customers and friends, to our network of first-class agents and suppliers around the world - and not forgetting, of course, our own great team of dedicated, experienced, hard-working and fun-loving Limosa guides, to whom we owe an enormous and particular debt of gratitude. We couldn’t have done any of this without any of you!

Many thanks for your support. We wish you all well, good health and many more years of good birding... wherever it may be and whoever you may choose to travel with!

Take care all, and with our warmest wishes

Chris & Barbara
