Note from the authors:
Guiding naturalists for over 15 years made us take note and think differently. We’ve noticed that people come to Poland for a few days of their holiday to enjoy wildlife and are often left struggling around on their own.
Precise information is invaluable. That’s what this Site Guide is all about. In this book, we share all our local knowledge on where to find, all year round, the rare birds and large mammals of the Białowieża Forest.
We hope you enjoy reading this new edition as much as we enjoyed researching and making it. We wish you many unforgettable wildlife sightings, that you see everything you wanted and a lot more!

The Białowieża forest is one of my most favourite areas in Europe. The authors, who know the area like the back of their hands, have done an excellent and authoritative job with this handy and comprehensive guide. The fine detail for so many sites make it an outstanding and near perfect companion, bettered only if you can persuade the authors to guide you personally. I urge you to take it to Białowieża as soon as you can, and stay awhile – you won’t regret a moment. Some of my most fond memories from the past 16 years come from Białowieża at dawn or dusk. Enjoy the magic – while you can.

Thanks again for all your advice & help. I’ve read & re-read your book from cover to cover. It’s one of the most informative & useful guides I’ve come across. We’ll really put it to the test for the woodpeckers next month! Good birding

With this amazing book you’ll find all the greatest spots. It is a priceless source of information. The information was correct and we had many great sightings thanks to this book. It includes a map of the area.
Further subsections treat different parts of the area more in detail. For each subsection a range of foot and bike trails are suggested. The GPS coordinates to the start of the trails are also included. There is information on time needed for all the trails, which shoes to wear, when to go (in the year and in the day)… More importantly there is also a list included on common, less common and rare species which you may encounter (mainly birds, but also lots of info on mammals).
For each trail there is a detailed colour map with numbers which indicate where to keep an extra eye open for which species. A description of the trail (in English – just in case you were wondering) gives extra directions and information on species sightings. The whole is illustrated with nice pictures.
The book also included extra general information on the history of the area and the animals, where to stay and eat, how to behave when meeting officials, … I feel like I’m selling the thing by now but it is just a great book which is very easy to use, attractive to look at and which gives fantastic information! No more extra preparation needed with this one!
For our trip report, I mainly use the numbers of the trails used in the Site guide. As this book was such a great help to us, it seems rather unfair to spread all the info we got from it just like that. Who wants to have the exact spots for sightings should better spend a few euros and purchase it from the authors, that clearly put a lot of effort in writing it.
