Kolibri Expeditions has for many years been committed to being “single use plastic” free, providing filtered water in the field as well as reusable food containers and utensils. We also, whenever and wherever possible, will give preference to our partners in the hospitality industry who provide alternatives to single-use plastic products; and actively encourage local communities to work towards a plastic-free lifestyle.

Kolibri Expeditions trains local community members as guides and conservation specialists. This is especially important in areas where deforestation is rampant and the need for conservation to promote tourism as a viable alternative to unsustainable logging and coca production. We are the lead partner in the Satipo Road/Carpish community initiative.

Kolibri Expeditions also provide financial and logistical support towards the conservation of the critically endangered Junin Grebe.

    Gunnar like a brilliant conductor orchestrated our 18 day trip of Peru. From a fantastic trip to Machu Picchu, two days in the St Eulalia valley and Marcopomacocha with the crescendo being a 10 day odyssey through central Peru. Both the driver Manuel Zamora and bird guide Carlos Altamirano were outstanding and the famous Kolibri field meals were excellent. From our close encounter with the Golden Backed Mountain Tanager to the Diademed Sandpiper-Plover, the variety of birds including many endemics, surpassed our expectations. Thanks to our experience with Kolibri our first trip to Peru will not be our last. Fiorella Williams and Bradford Decker, London

    We had a great time Birding in Peru - our first time. We would have wished a detailed Bird List at each location well ahead of the trip. Our guides were excellent and took the time to help us spot the bird and provided info about the Bird as well

    I had a great time exploring NE Peru and finally see some key target birds for me such at the Long-whispered Owlet and the Spactulatail. Gunnar also took me to the old LSU trail. Hiking in the footsteps of some of the greatest ornithologists was also a unique experience.

    The Guide Carlos Altimirano was excellent and very professional in his organisation and problem solving. Gunnar is a great guy and full of stories, humour and music prowess, and we enjoyed our pelagic trip with him. Alejandro Tello guided us on the 2 day short trip into the high Andes and looked after us very well. His birding knowledge was very good.

    Gunnar has outstanding knowledge of Peru, has decent vehicles and uses good local guides. HIs connections to local conservation are also outstanding. Kollibri can accommodate budget travelers and higher end travelers who want a good level of comfort. Their flexibility with schedules is also notable. Conditions are often quite changeable in Peru but Gunnar is expedient in resolving unforeseen problems. I've done 3 tours and will do at least one more when time permits.

    Had a fantastic trip with Kolibri in Sept 2017 - started with the fixed Manu Rd departure and Gunnar enabled me to customize around flights before and after to bird nearly every waking moment, all at very reasonable cost. Guides and drivers could not have been better. I'd bird with Kolibri again anytime.
