Colombia Birdwatching Tour

Colombia Birdwatching Tour

Colombia has almost 1900 bird species, more birds than any other country in the world and this number is growing every year through new discoveries and range extensions, but it is not only the sheer number of species that are impressive, but also the extraordinary number of endemics found within its boundaries. Although it has not always been the case, most areas of the country are now stable and safe for birders to visit. It is still however, a very new destination and very few birders have ventured here so far. There is so much to observe and discover in Colombia, that it would be impossible to cover all the birding regions of this amazing country on one trip, so by way of introduction on this tour, we will concentrate on the most important Magdalena Valley and Santa Marta areas.

Colombia is a must for any serious birder and although you can only hope to have a glimpse of its extraordinary biodiversity in a single trip, it will be an unforgettable experience.

This a small group trip of 15 days duration from 24th March – 8th April 2018.
