Peru is a country of superlative scenery. Although the main focus is birds we will also enjoy some mammals, reptiles, poison dart frogs, butterflies and other wildlife and plants. We will visit the spectacular Gocta Falls and the important archaeological site at Kuelap in the northern Andes; also the fascinating Mummies Museum at Leymebamba.
We will travel along ancient routes and marvel at the architectural achievements of long gone civilizations. We expect to find some rare nocturnal species such as the Oilbird and the poorly known Long-whiskered Owlet; and a wide variety of hummingbirds including the Marvellous Spatuletail. We stay at comfortable lodges and hotels, some run by local communities, eat local food and experience the REAL Peru!
