Overview

Peru is one of the leading South American destinations in which to enjoy tropical Amazon rainforest. Our time in Iquitos will be divided between Allpahuayo Mishana, Explornapo and Muyuna Lodge. With an area species list of over 600 species, we shall certainly have our hands full with an amazing volume of new species. While quite impossible to mention all the possible highlights, some of the major target species include the range-restricted Ancient Antwren, endemic Allpahuayo Antbird, endemic Iquitos Gnatcatcher, critically endangered Wattled Curassow, bizarre Nocturnal Curassow, enigmatic Rufous and White-winged Potoos, showy Pompadour Cotinga, mind-numbing Black-necked Red Cotinga, and a slew of other fabulous amazonian icons such as Amazonian Umbrellabird, Pavonine Quetzal and Crested Eagle.

The tour was fantastic. Forrest Rowland, did a terrific job spotting birds, giving us clear directions to actually sight the birds and displayed plenty of patience in the process.

This was an excellent tour! We saw so many great birds, and had many delicious meals from pizza to ceviche. The time spent birding and touring Kuelap was a highlight. To top everything off, Forrest Rowland is an awesome leader. In addition to hearing, seeing and getting everyone on the birds, he told wonderful stories and kept everyone laughing. All in all, we had a terrific time.

Our guide, Rob Williams, was exceptionally well qualified, good humoured in all circumstances and remarkably diligent in accommodating all levels of birding skills within our group. He went out of his way to make sure that each member of the group realised their expectations for the trip. We would welcome the opportunity to join him on additional trips; he is a quality individual with sound values and a superb representative of Rockjumper Birding Tours.

Forrest Rowland is a terrific guide. He was incredibly knowledgeable of the birds we encountered on our trip. Further, he is very friendly, engaging and enthusiastic. I’d be quite pleased to join him again on any birding tour in the Neotropics.

It is terrific to have a bilingual guide in any country and one who knows the history and culture of the country is even better, thanks Rob! As always, terrific eyes, ears and birding skills.
