Bird Watching Bolivia Eastern Lowlands Tour

Birding Tour in the Eastern Bolivia Lowlands

This is an 8-day Bird Watching Bolivia Eastern Lowlands Tour, is moderately paced available on request taking in some of the most famous natural sights of eastern Bolivia while exploring a surprising variety of habitats along the way. Focus on the wildlife-rich lowlands east of the Andes for a superb introduction to Bolivia’s diverse habitats, birds, landscapes and culture.

Explore the Gran Chaco Dry Forest in South East Bolivia

Our Bird Watching Bolivia Eastern Lowlands Tour starts out, as most do, in Santa Cruz de la Sierra, but unlike most tours, we start off by heading south to the Chaco of Southern Santa Cruz department for Chaco specialized birds.

We will explore the Dry Chiquitania forests of the department of Santa Cruz, searching for such habitat distinct birds as the Red-legged Seriema, Greater Rhea, Red-billed Scythbill, Long-winged Harrier, Bicolored Seedeater, and the near endemic Bolivian Slaty-Antshrike – most birders only see this species in Bolivia.

We then travel south to the Bolivia Chaco, only shared with Paraguay and Argentina. Many of the birds in this habitat are only seen in Bolivia. The open habitat will assist us in getting some great looks, and some rare looks at Chaco Chachalaca, Black-legged Seriema, Larklike Brushrunner, Brown Cacholote, Crested Hornero, Chaco Earthcreeper, and Many-colored Chaco-Finch among others.

Explore the Beni Wetlands of North East Bolivia

From there we will travel to the north and the seasonally-flooded savannas in the Beni area (technically defined as the Llanos de Moxos habitat), where a spacious mix of grasslands, marshes, dry forest and tall gallery forest (also generally called 'pampas') await us. Trinidad is a great birding town and the surroundings offer some spectacular birding spots, not the least because of the endemic and critically endangered Blue-throated Macaw.

Until now, experiencing Bolivia's avian riches required a minimum of 3-4 weeks of exhilarating and exhausting travel. We've designed this Bolivia birdwatching tour to be more affordable than those marathon trips while experiencing the highlights of the Bolivian Lowlands and their surprising diversity.
