Although the variety of raptors can keep one Vardziabusy for quite some time, Batumi and it's surroundings,  and Georgia in general have a whole lot more to offer! Ranging from subtropical forest in Adjara over the badlands and riparian forests in the east and from the alpine landscapes of the Caucasus to the sandstone cliffs and steppes of the south. The variety of natural landscapes and diversity of plants and wildlife in this small country is simply astonishing.
