Wildlife holidays in Bolivia

South America is an immensely varied continent, comprising extremes of climate and topography. There are certain images that most people associate as being typical of South America and many of these are realised in Bolivia.

Landlocked between Peru, Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay and Chile, the country has some stunning Andean scenery and some of the highest peaks in the Americas.

Over half the human population lives in the altiplano, a windswept plateau between two ranges of mountains, and many of the native peoples living here still speak the ancient Aymara language which dates back to a pre-Inca civilisation.

Our Bolivia specialist recommends..

"Our 12 day tour of the Bolivian highlands is a high altitude birdwatching tour, visiting the temperate forests of Cochabamba and the spectacular mountains and altiplano of La Paz and Lake Titicaca. This can be combined with our Bolivia – Lowlands holiday."

Nowhere else in South America are the national ethnic roots so pronounced as Bolivia. The Llama herders driving their animals down from high level grazing pastures live a lifestyle that has barely changed in centuries.

Although the high mountains are the most dominant feature of the country, Bolivia also embraces a remarkable diversity of other habitats including Grand Chaco, Yungus cloudforest, tracts of unique Polylepis forest and sultry Amazonian jungle.

What’s special about the wildlife?

All but two of the Neotropical bird families are represented in the national bird list of over 1,350 species, which is one of the largest in the world and includes 18 endemic birds plus many other rarities.

Nick was outstanding, not only a brilliantly knowledgeable birder, but a man passionately in love with Bolivia with an encyclopaedic knowledge of the culture, language and politics.
A very enjoyable birdwatching holiday made so much better by our very good guide, he was a mine of information on everything, and he could mimic all the bird calls - an excellent leader.
I would like to praise the driver who was polite, professional and helpful at all times during the tour.
