Peru and within that the Manu National Park in the Amazon is surely one of the top destinations for birding & wildlife. If we just make a short list what we had there even on our recce tour, you will know why it is a dream destination for any nature enthusiast: we witnessed an Ocelot catching a Mealy Parrot for breakfast and a Harpy Eagle chasing Red & Green Macaws! All this sitting comfortably in front of a clay-click, sipping coffee. A giant Canopy Tower on a Ceiba tree produced such birds just on that tree like: Magpie-, Green-and-Gold & Paradise Tanager, Plum-throated and Spangled Cotinga, Tui Parakeet, Green & Blue Macaw and many more.
We also had Hoatzin, Horned Screamer, Ladder-tailed Nightjar, Purus Jacamar, Razor-billed Curassow, Swallow-wing, Blue-crowned Trogon, Pale-winged Trumpeter plus loads of Parrots, Parakeets & Macaws everyday.
During an extension or post-tour:
At the Colca Canyon we almost touched an Andean Condor & a Black-chested Buzzard-Eagle, saw Andean Flamingo and lot of local high elevation species.
Add Machu Picchu, Sacred Valley & Cusco with its stunning mix of Nature & Culture, plus tropical butterflies & loads of endemics like Bearded Mountaineer and you will end up with an unforgettable tour for sure!
