Bolivia is the best country in the world to see macaws. Bolivia has twelve species of macaw, the highest diversity of macaws in the wild. Compare to Costa Rica which has three species of macaws. Bird Bolivia is developing the first and only mega-macaw tour where you will have high probabilties to see nine species of macaw (nothing in nature is 100% guaranteed, but we are pretty close). From the large Red-and-green, and Blue-and-yellow Macaw, to the medium Blue-throated and Red-fronted Macaw- both threatened with extinction and only found in Bolivia. Bird Bolivia has the best spots to take frequent and long looks at these magnificent creatures.
We will start the tour near Santa Cruz with our first macaw, the Chestnut-fronted Macaw (Severe Macaw). From there we travel to see the massive Hyacinth Macaw in Bolivia's Pantanal. Then on to the rainforest to enjoy Red-and-green Macaws at the new Sadiri Jungle lodge. Next is the Red-bellied Macaw, where we will visit a popular breeding area for this attractive macaw. Then in the Beni Savannas of the Barba Azul Nature Reserve we will observe the normally ridiculously rare Blue-throated Macaw, but only here on the reserve remains the last large group, plus Blue-and-yellow Macaw, Yellow or Golden-collared Macaw, and possibly more Red-shouldered and Red-bellied Macaws. Then the trip climbs out of the hot humid tropics towards the dry Andean valleys to visit the fantastic Red-fronted Macaw lodge and witness a remarkable spectacle of nature as the Red-fronted Macaws visit and breed in a massive rocky cliff. The trip will include around twenty other parrot species. We should see such species as Mitred Parakeet, Blue-crowned Parakeet, the endemic Cliff Parakeet, Green-cheeked Parakeet, Gtray-hooded Parakeet, Blue-winged Parrotlet, Yellow-chevroned Parakeet, Blue-headed Parrot, Blue-fronted Parrot, and Mealy Parrot (and a few others if we get really lucky). We will also enjoy some of the tropical oddballs as the Jabiru, Maguari Stork, Toco Toucan, and Andean Condor.
Bird Bolivia is in the process of creating a tour to make the most of this unique diversity. We are waiting on appropriate lodging with plans to start the tours in 2011. We have created a waiting list for this tour, so please write to us if you are interested.
