The Ultimate In Birding Tours

János Oláh

János Oláh lives in Debrecen, Hungary with his partner Gabriella and daughter Enikö. A keen birder from the age of 10, János (pronounced ‘Yanosh’) speaks fluent English (his grasp of idiom is remarkable), has a degree in Ecology from the University of Debrecen and is now doing post-graduate research on the ecology of aquatic birds (especially shorebirds, on which he has published a number of scientific papers).

He has (with Zoltán Ecsedi) produced a handbook to the birds of the Hortobágy and has carried out a survey of the avifauna of the entire Carpathian range. He is a member of the Hungarian rarities committee and the operator of the Hungarian Birdline.

János is a highly accomplished bird tour leader who guides groups both in his native Hungary (and adjacent Slovakia and Romania), where his knowledge is unsurpassed, and across the globe.

János has travelled very extensively in search of birds on all seven continents, building up a remarkable level of expertise in a series of countries and regions, including large parts of South America, (and in particular Peru, Brazil and Bolivia), Central America and Mexico, swathes of Asia from Mongolia, Japan and China south to the Indian subcontinent and Indonesia, West Africa, Ethiopia, East Africa, South Africa, Namibia, the Indian Ocean islands, Australia, New Guinea and many of the Pacific islands.
