UPCOMING TOURS IN 2016
October 5 - October 23
with extension to Machu Picchu to Oct 26
I am very excited to offer a NEW revised tour to Manu Peru that will visit spend more time (than previous trips) along the famous Manu Road. We will have three nights at Wayquecha Lodge, then three nights at San Pedro (Paradise Lodge), and three nights along the lower Manu road at new lodge Villa Carmen. We follow this with a SIX night stay at wonderful Manu Wildlife Center! This revised itinerary will be more relaxing, yet more comprehansive! There will be an extension to wonderful Machu Picchu immediately following the Manu trip.
October 29 - November 15, 2016
Southern Ecuador has become my most successful trip in recent years - my trip in October/November 2015 saw more than 600 species, including rarities such as Jocotoco Antpitta, Orange-throated Tanager, Long-wattled Umbrellabird, El Oro Parakeet, and many Tumbesian endemics! My trip in 2016 will be a repeat, and we plan again to visit the Cuenca region, especially Yungilla in search of the re-discovered Pale-headed Brush-Finch. Sign up soon, as this tour has been very popular!
