Overview

Our tour of north east Argentina focusses predominantly on the province of Misiones. Here we will search the last remnants of San Pedro’s native Araucaria forest and visit one of the most spectacular natural wonders of the world, the gargantuan Cataratas del Iguazú (Iguazú Falls)! We conclude our tour with some remarkable wetland birding on the Esteros del Iberá, one of the largest marshland ecosystems in the country. Amongst the many fine birds we will be seeking are such sought-after and localised species as Strange-tailed Tyrant, Araucaria Tit-Spinetail, Black-fronted Piping Guan and Helmeted Woodpecker.

2023 Tour price is an estimate and will change. Tour dates could be adjusted.

The ability of our guide, Rich Lindie, to locate the birds from the faintest movement or call under difficult and trying conditions was outstanding.

I am not a twitcher or even a knowledgeable birdwatcher, but I am always keen to see new things. Our ranger André had a huge knowledge of birds. He shared this and more about all the flora and fauna that we came across. He explained about insects and trees as we passed them and didn't fail to answer a question.

Rockjumper's office staff continue with their excellent high level of client services. Prompt, concise and courteous replies are a trade-mark of the Rockjumper staff.

The game drives were fantastic, André’s knowledge and attention to detail could certainly be used as the benchmark for all lodges. We were often stopping to wipe away the tears of laughter and the times spent on the drives with André will certainly be remembered. Hats off to you André, you really made our trip!!!

André our game ranger for the third time once again is impeccable! His eyesight is actually too good for words!
