If you are a passionate bird watcher you should know that we strongly emphasize finding the birds you need to increase your list. Our trips’ pace will depend on this case on how many specialties you need and on your physical condition. However, we have to confess that we are very determined at the time to find your target species, so we offer in our travels the possibility of observing more than 67 endemic bird species and over one hundred specialties.
The rhythm of our tours is relatively easy and suitable for guests of all ages. You do not have to be an expert nature traveller to travel with us, but note that Colombia is a mountainous country with a variety of climates and habitats throughout its territory. There are usually outstanding roads in some of the sites we visit, whether very cold places or ones with high temperatures. We generally do not have to walk long distances to find a bird or a special place; however some places are more difficult than others. Our customers will be informed ahead of time and in great detail about such sites. For road trips you should know that remote places in Colombia usually do not have good roads, and for that reason certain trips take more time in some sections. But do not worry; transportation is always very comfortable, with air conditioning, comfortable seats and space between them so that you can stretch your legs. We will notify when needed if we have to be on poor roads or if we have to switch vehicles to four-wheel drive or jeeps for the wildest places.
Generally and based on our experience we are in a place long enough for you to see all the birds found there, since we know how frustrating it is to leave a place without seeing all the birds due to lack of time. You should not worry that we might have to leave soon and hurry; the itineraries are planned always thinking about your satisfaction.
All activities on the tour are optional, so long as this does not affect the normal development of the tour. Our permanent goal is that our clients achieve the objectives for which they chose this trip. We will be always willing to encourage and support you. If this is the first time you’re making a nature or birdwatching trip in a foreign country or in Colombia and you have questions, don’t hesitate to contact us. We will be completely pleased to give you as much detail as possible and the best advice for you to have a enjoyable and memorable trip.
