Tambopata & Photography Tour
This 9-day birding Peru photography tour examines the amazing biodiversity of South-Eastern Peruvian Amazonia.
Our “Southern Peru Birding Tour: Amazonian Lowlands and Tambopata River” offers a fantastic and unique opportunity for birdwatching in Amazonia. Manu and Tambopata are probably two of the best birding experiences in the neo-tropics. When birding the Amazonian lowlands, you will have the chance to see/hear more than 1000 bird species between the Manu and the Tambopata areas.
After flying from Lima to Puerto Maldonado, we will take a boat up the Río Madre de Dios to Los Amigos Biological Station (also known as CICRA) for birding the Amazonian lowlands. The fabulous trail system at Los Amigos allows visiting different kinds of habitats like terra firme and varzea forests, palm swamps, and bamboo patches. The diversity of wildlife in this area is just astonishing (birds, monkeys, frogs, snakes). Los Amigos is probably the best area in Peru for raptors and monkeys.
Then we will go back to Puerto Maldonado to take another boat to the Tambopata National Reserve. Inside the reserve, we stay at three different lodges: Posada Amazonas, Tambopata Research Center, and Refugio Amazonas. In Tambopata, we plan to stay most of our time at Tambopata Research Center, where bird diversity is just amazing. We will visit the canopy tower, the macaw clay lick (the largest macaw clay lick known in Peru), oxbow lakes with Giant River Otters and Caimans. Also, there is a good chance we will see anacondas, jaguars and tapirs.
The Southern Peru Birding Tour ends in the city of Puerto Maldonado, where we will take a flight back to Lima. Birding Manu and Tambopata will be the birding experience of your lifetime.
