Malia Tours

Birding in Sulawesi, Halmahera, and beyond

Malia Birding is a department under Malia Tours specializing in handling birding trips in Sulawesi, Halmahera, and beyond.

Malia Birding specializes in arranging birdwatching trips & wildlife photography tours throughout the islands of Indonesia. We focus on sites where experienced local birding guides can help our customers find endemic and other sought-after birds, explore wild areas and share experiences.

We are based in Palu, Central Sulawesi, the gateway to Lore Lindu National Park. Aside from the fabulous birding on Sulawesi, we can arrange birdwatching trips to Halmahera, Ambon and Maluku, West Papua, Kalimantan (Borneo), Sumatra, Java, Bali and the Lesser Sundas through our network of guides.

Malia is taken from the name of an endemic medium-sized (approximately 29 cm long) babbler-like passerine bird from Indonesiarestricted to the montane forests of Sulawesi.

Birding Package for Teenagers

You are a birdwatcher, But you play sports and play a game on a Computer! That’s crazy!”
Our passion for teenagers who are still getting to know the world of birds: Don’t let other people’s opinions get to you! The critics don’t count—in school, in sports, or in birding. If you know your stuff, they’ll have nothing to talk about. Build your knowledge by asking questions of those more experienced. Then, pass that insight on to those who aren’t fully fledged. It gives teenage birders confidence in what they do and is also rewarding and fun.

If you’re always on your phone, you’ve already got a head start on birding. Social media is an excellent tool for finding and sharing sightings, photos, or opinions so that you never feel isolated. You love using Facebook and Twitter to tell your stories, and Instagram and Snapchat to drop highlights from the field. Any way you use these options, We can help birders and non-birders understand what you’re up to. Hopefully, the excitement will be contagious!
