The Wonderful Wildlife of the Colombian Llanos and Ecuador’s Galapagos Islands
This unforgettable natural history holiday combines two of South America’s ‘must-see’ wildlife destinations: Colombia’s Los Llanos Orientales and the Galapagos Islands, Darwin’s Enchanted Isles found far off Ecuador’s Pacific coast.
Begin in Bogota, Colombia’s capital, before flying to Los Llanos Orientales (the eastern plains), a vast expanse of tropical savanna, gallery forest, seasonally flooded wetlands and small hillocks. Unfeasibly large giant anacondas are found here, as are Orinoco crocodile, giant anteater, puma, jaguar, flocks of scarlet ibis, jabiri storks and a multitude of other fauna. Then enjoy a sensational seven-night voyage around the iconic Galapagos Islands for dramatic volcanic landscapes, fascinating human culture and a plethora of specially adapted wildlife, both on land and underwater.
