An outstanding bird watching itinerary, based at luxurious Anse Chastenet Resort
St Lucia is an exciting birding destination and this is an outstanding itinerary, based at the lovely Anse Chastenet Resort, where you will have many opportunities for birdwatching all around the resort’s 600 acre estate, bordering two soft sand beaches. This is especially true in the Anse Mamin plantation part of the estate, where the guides are also trained in birdwatching. Not only do you get a World Heritage Site anchored by the twin peaks on land, the resort’s two crystal-clear bays are part of a designated marine reserve protecting miles of colourful coral reefs teeming with tropical fish.
On this relaxed tour you will have plenty of opportunity to look for St Lucia’s endemic birds, St Lucia Parrot, St Lucia Oriole, St Lucia Black Finch, St Lucia Warbler and St Lucia Pewee, as well as countless other Antillean specialities and near endemics such as St. Lucia Nightjar, Antillean Bullfinch, Purple-throated Carib, Green-throated Carib, Antillean Crested Hummingbird, White-breasted Thrasher, Scaly-breasted Thrasher, Pearly-eyed Thrasher, Gray Trembler, Antillean Euphonia, Lesser Antillean Flycatcher and Lesser Antillean Saltator.
This is not a group tour and therefore can be tailor-made to exactly suit your requirements. If you would prefer to stay at another hotel, have more or less free time or combine this tour with a stay on another island – we can happily arrange this for you.
