Leio De Souza and Jennifer De Souza
More details about this Trip:
Leio De Souza
With more than fifteen years experience in leading bird tours for leading international tour companies as well as countless private groups and individuals, both birders and photographers, he is widely acknowledged as among the leading bird guides/tour leaders in India today.
Leio guides extensively in Goa and throughout India as the primary tour leader for our fixed departure tours. His extensive knowledge of the avifauna of the Indian region, long experience of guiding and easy rapport with local guides and service providers combine with an infectious enthusiasm for the natural world, natural leadership qualities, easy-going nature and ever-present sense of humour to ensure rewarding tours and an enjoyable on-tour atmosphere.
Originally from England, Jennifer began birding at a very young age and pursued a BSc (Hons) in Natural Sciences at Durham University before moving permanently to India in 2004. Since then she has developed an extensive knowledge of the avifauna of the Indian region and butterflies of southern India, and puts this to good use handling enquiries and as tour co-leader when office work permits. Jennifer is also a keen wildlife photographer, currently developing a database of photographs of the butterflies of Goa.
