LOCATION

ENDEMIC COLOMBIA

THE ANCHICAYA VALLEY, WESTERN AND CENTRAL ANDES, CAUCA VALLEY, SANTA MARTA MOUNTAINS AND CARIBBEAN COAST

This tour is one of our faster paced tours and is designed to target many of Colombia’s most sought-after endemics. This program begins with a quest to find the endemics of the Pacific slope and the western and central Andes, moving on to the Holy Grail of endemics in Colombia: The Santa Marta Mountains. The highest coastal mountain on the planet has been identified as one of the most irreplaceable nature reserves on the planet, and contains the highest concentration of threatened wildlife on Earth.

HIGHLIGHTS


  • Bird the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, home to more than a quarter of the country’s endemics.
  • Ride the rails through pristine forests at the San Cipriano Reserve.
  • Visit the dry forests of mythical Guajira peninsula in Northern Colombia in search of Vermilion Cardinal, Scarlet Ibis and Tocuyo Sparrow. Enjoy the festival of tanagers in the Anchicaya Watershed, including Scarlet-and-white, Golden-chested, and Gray-and-gold.
