Many people know of the immense Brazilian Amazon with its astonishing biodiversity. But very few people are aware of the cerrado: a fascinating biome of vast grasslands, lightly wooded savannas, and ribbons of gallery forest growing along winding rivers. By birding this spectacular landscape we hope to encounter a large selection of its special avifauna.
Ecuador has the highest bird species diversity per square kilometer on the planet and offers some of the best birding of South America. Due to the short distances to drive, good tourist infrastructure, and wonderful lodges and other facilities for birders, Ecuador is perhaps the obligatory destination on the continent!
This short, standalone tour, or extension to our Birding Tour Bhutan: Bhutan in Spring and our Birding Tour Bhutan: Bhutan in Fall goes to the Indian state of Assam, home to two magnificent national parks for us to visit.
The Kingdom of Bhutan, known as “a Kingdom in the Clouds” and “the Land of the Thunder Dragon”, is a quaint, quiet, and scenically spectacular country with a strong conservation ethic rooted in ancient Buddhist traditions.
