Central Lowlands Tour
2600

6-day birding tour to the region of the country that supports the highest biodiversity.  Lodging will be in the town of Gamboa, which sits adjacent to the Panama Canal and is nestled within the boundaries of Soberania National Park. Birding trips to local birding hotspots will be supplemented with a day trip to an extinct volcano to experience the avifauna at higher elevations. This is the perfect introduction to Panama and its birds.

    We had never been birding outside the U.S. before but after hearing Dr. Clarkson speak so enthusiastically about birding in Panama I really wanted to go. We were nervous about the whole idea but Dr. Clarkson made all the arrangements so we had nothing to worry about. Charles is an amazing guide with a phenomenal knowledge of the birds, wildlife and culture of Panama. The group size was small allowing for individual attention and Dr. Clarkson was able to make sure we all saw every bird he found. We had a great, fun trip and in fact are going again. We highly recommend Antbird Tours

    Charles knows more about birds than anyone I have ever met. Our trip to Panama was amazing. We went in April and it was hot, fortunately we were out of the sun during the hottest part of the day. The bird's were plentiful, but Charles could identify the birds by their calls, many of which we did not see. The accommodations were nice. We had AC and good home cooked meals. The company was delightful.

    I have traveled to Panama with Antbird Tours three times for the Central Lowlands tour. Yes, it is that good! Dr. Charles Clarkson is an amazing tour guide and a fantastic ornithologist. He expertly manages every detail while traveling and the group size is always small, allowing each client to receive a lot of personal attention. I cannot even begin to describe the amount of birding you can accomplish with Charles as your guide. He has a wealth of knowledge and shares it in a way that keeps things fun and highly informative. While on a trip with Antbird Tours, Charles will literally bird 14 hours a day for those that want to see it all, yet he has always has plenty of "outs" lined up for those that prefer to bird part of the day and relax the other part of the day. The energy, vibe, and quality of this tour keeps me coming back again and again. Two thumbs up!

    My partner and I went on the Central Lowlands tour, and it exceeded all of our expectations. Within only a couple of hours of arriving in Gamboa, we began to take the amazing variety of birds for granted, and this is all due to the fact that Dr. Charles Clarkson is not simply taking you birdwatching - he is immersing you in the rhythm of the ecosystem of central Panama. For beginning birders, he is incredibly helpful: finding and pointing out birds quickly and clearly, identifying them by ear and by eye. He is able to explain their behaviors, their habitats, and their interaction with the whole world of flora and fauna. The tour was completely suitable for all kinds of people - those who want to be active, and those who are happier taking things at a slower pace. The lodging in Gamboa was a perfect, comfortable homebase for all the excursions, and the hosts (Ivan and Gladys) are so warm and welcoming. Every piece of the tour was carefully planned out, and that means that participants just get to revel in the beauty of Panama and its wildlife.

    Antbird Tours has developed several amazing "standard" trips in Panama(https://www.antbirdtours.com/). From my experience, Antbird will customize yours to fit your interests. Chief Guide and founder Charles Clarkson, with his extensive expertise in all things Neotropical, is a fantastic leader and birder, freely sharing his wealth knowledge about birds and their ecology. He has the unique gift of paying attention to the needs of everyone in the group, and makes individual adjustments on the fly if needed. I participated in the Antbird Tour's inaugural trip to the Central Lowlands of Panama (Pipeline Road and environs), and that experience convinced me to join the Panama Western Highlands tour in 2019. The "Energizer Bunny of Birding" gives you a wonderful trip experience, whether you are a die-hard global "lister" like me, or are more casual in your birding interests. Want a company who will give your personalized attention, a lot of fun, and almost guaranteed success at finding the birds you want to see? Then book with Antbird Tours. I did, and will continue to do so.
