More Details About this Trip:
This trip has the potential to provide opportunities to see over 500 species. Our last group found 429 species during the first 13 days of birding, and then 72 more on the extension.
As the name of the trip implies, we cover a range of
habitats from the lowlands of Bolivia from Santa Cruz up
into the highlands into La Paz. The extension trip reaches
even higher elevation. Each change in elevaton and
habitat seems to bring new bird watching opportunities.
Over a dozen Bolivian endemics will likely be seen. All will be thrilled with marvelous views of the endangered Red- fronted Macaw, Black-hooded Sunbeam, Cochabamba Mountain-Finch and the Rufous-faced Antpitta.
Pricing: $4,190 US Dollars or £2,875 GBP for 14 Days and 13 Nights
