We are now receiving bookings for the festival in October 2012. Our preferred way to manage these is by online booking but if this is a problem for you please contact us for other arrangements.
Bookings are separated into two forms.
1. Bookings for Birdwatching Tours and Walks - these bookings will be managed by Inala Nature Tours.
2. Bookings for the social events, cultural activities, market and talks - these bookings will be managed by BIEN.
You can access both booking forms from this page.
Register early for the events and tours.
Please be sure to read the full program information before proceeding to registering for events and booking for tours. Register and pay early to be sure of your place.* see cancellation policy below.

Please note that for cancellations by you after 11th October, 2012 or if you do not show up for a booked tour, fees are not refundable. Cancellations prior to 11th October 2012 (must be in writing and will be deemed to take effect on the date of receipt by us) will be refunded in full (less any bank or credit cards fees).
