The verdant Amazon, replete with a diversity of avifauna rivaled nowhere else on our planet, forms the focus of our post-tour Amazon Rainforest Birding Extension. As a base we have selected a wonderful lodge that boasts well over 500 species, and offers 20 km of well-maintained trails and a high platform that exposes you to the hidden world of the forest canopy. Whilst on trail we will look for the likes of Cryptic Forest Falcon, nunlets, jacamars and a horde of antbirds, antpittas, antwrens and ant-thrushes! The mammals here are not neglected, and we may encounter lethargic sloths, Lesser Anteater and primates including the endemic Red-nosed Spider and Bearded Saki Monkey.
