The Natural History Highlights of Wild Colombia
Incorporating many of the prime wildlife habitats of Colombia, this comprehensive yet well-paced itinerary provides plenty of time to enjoy each location whilst accompanied by exceptional naturalist guides.
Lush, verdant Amazonia is complemented perfectly by the vast, flat expense of Los Llanos Orientales, while the bird-rich Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta rises above the pristine Caribbean beaches of Tayrona National Natural Park. Observe pink and river grey dolphins hunting in the mighty Amazon river; search for the cute pygmy marmoset in the pristine rainforest, focus on flocks of iridescent scarlet ibis; marvel at jabiru storks and immense giant anacondas in Los Llanos; and experience one of the world’s highest densities of endemic birds at El Dorado Reserve in the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta. Finally, descend to the Caribbean coast where warm turquoise waters lap palm-fringed beaches and forest denizens include the funky cotton top tamarin and inquisitive northern tamandua.
