Bolivia Birding: Lowlands to Highlands

Itineraries: Brief and Detailed


Trip Description

Brief Itinerary

This trip will take you on an expedition through many of the major birding hotspots in Bolivia. From volcanoes to jungles to high altitude forests, you will cover a large variety of habitats to maximize the number of birds seen. Most trips find over 400 species in two weeks and 500 species with the extension trip. Bolivian endemics and regional endemics (shared with bordering Peru and Argentina) make this an endemic rich and worthwhile trip. No one will forget Red-fronted Macaws in flight, the stunning Black-hooded Sunbeam and other hummingbirds, and more fantastic tropical birding. These trips are offered several times per year. Great guides include Lelis Navarrete and Willy Perez who will assure good communication and productive birding.
