Situated in the South Atlantic, the Falkland Islands or Islas Malvinas have experienced a rather interesting recent history with several countries having staked a claim for them over the past few hundred years. Controversy aside, our Falkland Islands birding tour offers up a sumptuous wildlife spectacle and visitors can expect up-close-and-personal encounters with a variety of different species. Penguins including King, Southern Rockhopper, Gentoo and Magellanic can all be seen at close quarters. A variety of other endemics and specials will also be looked for and include Cobb’s Wren, Falkland Steamer Duck, Ruddy-headed Goose, Striated Caracara. Add to this an assortment of marine mammals such as South American Sea Lion, Commerson’s and Peale’s Dolphins, Leopard Seal and Southern Elephant Seal and you have the makings of a fabulous experience. Our Falkland Islands birding tour will visit the key sites of Sea Lion, Bleaker and Malvinas Islands where we have fabulous chances of seeing Orca close up as they pursue fur seals and sea lions close to shore. Phenomenal photographic opportunities are not to be missed.
