Steering clear of the city, Wild Colombia takes you off the beaten track to immerse yourself in the spectacular nature of this verdant country.
With more bird species than any other country in the world and a host of radically contrasting eco-systems boasting populations of emblematic Latin American mammals, Colombia’s wildlife credentials are often overlooked in favour of city-hopping itineraries. Beginning in the tropical savannahs of the Eastern Llanos, you will participate in nature activities at luxury safari-style tented camp with the local llanero cowboys and keep your eyes peeled for giant anteaters, Orinoco crocodiles, marsh deer, anaconda and flocks of scarlet ibis. After a brief stop in the capital city, you will fly south to the Amazon and explore the river channels of the remote Amacayacu National Park. Exploring the natural delights of the Coffee Region comes next – diving into the páramo eco-system of the Los Nevados National Park, before flying to Santa Marta to finish your trip with a seaside stay in the biodiverse rainforests of the Caribbean Coast.
