If birders needed one single reason for considering wildlife tours in Bolivia it would surely be to search for the country’s 12 different species of macaw. Bolivia has the greatest diversity of these colourful parrots found in any country. It also boasts an impressive 1,437 bird species, making it the sixth most bird-rich country in the world.
A wildlife tour in Bolivia can take you to the snow-clad peaks and high-altitude deserts of the Andean mountain range. Or it could be an exploration of the Amazon rainforest, the sprawling grasslands of the Bolivian steppes, or the world’s largest salt flats. Each unique habitat hosts animal life that is perfectly adapted to its surroundings. Tours can be in organised groups or custom-made and there are specific photography tours available.
You don’t have to be an ardent birder to find Bolivia a compelling place to visit for a wildlife tour. There are also 319 recorded mammal species in Bolivia, a third of all South American mammalian fauna. Many of these are rare, for instance the Pink Dolphins of the Amazon River and its tributaries, or the Andean Flamingos that inhabit the Laguna Colorado salt flats.
Other must-see Bolivian mammals include the Spectacled Bear, Jaguar, Puma, Two- and Three-toed Sloths, Giant Otters, Tapirs and Chinchillas. For fans of bats, there are a staggering 106 known species in this fascinating country and scientists are discovering new ones at the rate of three a year.
The list of reptiles and amphibians is no less impressive, with Anaconda, Dwarf, Smooth-fronted and Black Caimen, several species of tree iguanas, and lizards such as the Bolivian Lightbulb to admire.
