Namibia Botswana Zambia Birding

At a glance Peru simply has it all: monuments to ancient civilisations, world-leading fusion gastronomy, eclectic cultural heritage, outdoor adventures of all kinds, colourful tribal festivals, and of course wild and diverse landscapes. With over 1850 bird species Peru has one of the biggest bird lists in the world, including an incredible 107 endemic species. Peru is an extremely biodiverse country with habitats ranging from the arid plains of the Pacific coastal region in the west to the peaks of the Andes mountains vertically extending from the north to the southeast of the country to the tropical Amazon Basin rainforest in the east formed by the mighty Amazon river. Theodore Parker III, a well-known American ornithologist, once said, “Peru offers bird enthusiasts more than any other country in the world… Being here is like being a child visiting a huge store filled with new and fascinating toys.”Read more for full itinerary
