Bolivia is something akin to the “Andean Frontier” as far as birding tours are concerned. While new birds are certainly being discovered in Colombia and Peru, Bolivia remains the least-accessible of all the Andean nations. Lucky for us, this is changing! Our Mega birding tour covers it all: Yungas, Savanna, Chaco, Arid Montane Valleys and the Amazon Rainforest. We target almost all the Bolivian endemics in a single tour, featuring perhaps the two most iconic endangered endemics in the whole country: Red-fronted and Blue-throated Macaw! Those aside, Masked Antpitta, Red-tailed Comet, Berlepsch’s Canastero, Black-masked Finch, Cochabamba Mountain Finch, Scimitar-winged Piha, Hooded Mountain Tanager, Bolivian Earthcreeper, Black-hooded Sunbeam, Slaty Gnateater, Blue-tufted Starthroat, Blue-capped Puffleg, Titicaca Grebe, Bolivian Warbling Finch, Chestnut-crested Cotinga – the list of amazing Bolivian birds is endless! Yet birds alone are not the only allure to this culturally-intact and aware country. Amazing scenery in the High Andes puna, dramatic Andean canyons and vast savannas are the backdrop for a vibrant cultural diversity, which makes our experience in Bolivia’s remote wilderness all the more memorable. We look forward to having you join us on this ground-breaking tour.

Tour Pace & Walking
Our Mega tours are very fast-paced birding adventures designed for the dedicated lister and serious birder. The focus of the tour is to see as many of the endemics and area specials as possible in our given time. In order to cover the necessary route to maximise the species list we tend to spend a single night at most sites and travel large distances. There is very little down time aside from that spent driving from one site to the next. These tours are not suitable for dedicated or avid photographers; inexperienced or new birders; as well as anyone with serious mobility or health challenges.
