A paradise for birders, Colombia has the highest bird species count of any country in the world, with well over 1900 species. The diverse topography includes three Andean Cordilleras, two inter-Andean valleys, the Amazon and Orinoco Rivers, the Pacific and Caribbean Coasts, and the rich Chocó biogeographical region, which all add up to one of the most complicated topographies in South America!
We return to the Central Andes where we are sure to find many endemic birds, as well as some familiar species from other Andean countries. Our trip will include the Upper Anchicaya Valley, Otún Quimbaya Sanctuary, the Río Blanco cloud forest reserve, stunning Los Nevados National Park, the lovely town of Jardín, and Cauca Valley, and ending at famous Las Tángaras Reserve (a tanager paradise!). Trip begins in Cali and will finish in Medellín.
If you have a life list, a delight in traveling off the beaten path, early morning starts, and long days filled with challenging birding: this is the trip for you!
