Travel & Leisure

As well as wildlife watching, a binocular, monocular or scope can bring a new dimension to your travel experience or leisure activity. For that once in a lifetime safari, make sure to travel light with a compact or mid-sized binocular. If space allows, a travelscope will give even better views. Specialist hobbies such as plane spotting are catered for by models from our binocular and spotting scope ranges. If you are water borne but want an optic to take with you just in case, a waterproof monocular is a good choice.

    Wildlife Holidays

    For some people a safari holiday is a once in a lifetime experience. Even if you go on safari regularly, the fleeting moments of observation that wild animals sometimes allow need to be made the most of. A lightweight, small-sized binocular or a travelscope won't hit your luggage allowance too hard but will get you closer to the action.

    Walking & Hiking

    By definition being outdoors puts us close to nature - even in a city there are birds to be observed! Whether your preference is a gentle stroll through the local park, some strenuous hill walking or a long hike across the moors, a binocular or monocular will ensure that you get a good view of any wildlife that joins you on your journey.

    Water Sports

    Paddling your canoe along a slow-moving river will often bring you into sight of bank-side birds or mammals. If your choice of water is the sea, then sea birds or cetaceans may be your companions. A waterproof monocular can be operated one-handed, allowing you to hang on tight to your paddle whilst taking in the view.

    Sporting Events

    An essential item when packing to go to a horse race meeting is a compact binocular. Don't rely on the big screens around the track to show your horse - with your own optics, you can follow the animal you backed all the way. With sports stadia getting ever larger, even a small monocular can be useful if the action is on the other side of the pitch.

    Plane Spotting

    Whether you are at an air display or standing by your car at the end of a runway, using a binocular or spottingscope will help you get the most out of your hobby. A straight-body spottingscope used with a suitable tripod is perfect for reading identification marks. Binoculars are a good choice for tracking fast-moving aircraft displaying at a show.
