Southern Peru

Rating

Another amazing birding destination within Peru is the southern part of the country, mainly the Cuzco area. Our Southern Peru trips had been design to show you both, culture and birds. For instance, you can have plenty of time inside Machu Picchu for photographs and enjoy the local birds like Inca Wren, Cusco Brush-Finch, or Tricolored Brush-Finch; or you can walk the trails in the cloud forests along the road to Manu National Park, and even watch a lek of Andean Cock-of-the-Rock from a comfortable seat. Manu National Park and Tambopata Reserve are fantastic places for birding, with several species of Parrots and Macaws attending the clay licks and more than 60 species of Antbirds. Also, the Amazonian lowlands are good for other wildlife like Tapirs and Jaguars.
