Why birding Peru with Kolibri Expeditions?

Birding Peru with Kolibri Expeditions gives you the best value and MORE BIRDS. Apart from birdwatching holidays in Peru we also organize bird photography and nature-watching trips to Peru, South America and worldwide. Peru birdwatching tours can be customized to all comfort levels, as well as to previous birding experience. Fixed departures in our calendar have lower prices. For some tours such as Manu road or North Peru there is tiered pricing depending on level of comfort in lodging and the services you choose. This way you can choose a budget for your pocket.
Use the category menue or the calendar to find a trip that suits your needs in content or in your time frame. Also check tour length to find a trip of preferred length of time. For those with very limited time we recommend to check our 5 day tours covering the major birding areas of Peru.
Recently we have started offering trips outside of Peru. Check our short Winter Japan tour for example.

Our clients choose us because:

  • of our ....Environment, Conservation and Community commitments.
  • of our....Excellent breakfasts and lunches in the field with fresh-brewed coffee and fresh pressed orange-juice, which allows our more birding time than sit-down meals.
  • We deliver MORE BIRDS - Our Motto!
  • We provide free completely safe treated drinking water and this way avoid plastic disposable bottles. The use of disposable plastic bottles in much of South America where there is lack of recycling and garbage treatment is a huge environmental problem. Furthermore bottled water is a waste of natural resources and energy period. Water is filtered and treated with micropor.
  • We involve and train local guides.
  • We have pioneered into new birding areas some that have become part of the regular birding circuit today
  • We have the longest track record of organizing Pelagics in Peru.
  • Our drivers and guides are legendary
  • We provide birding for everyone at every level. We provide deluxe trips as well as budget trips, and even self-guided trips, if you want only some of the logistics taken care of. And we provide every level of comfort and pace. Your requirements is our guideline. We can pair you up with others who have interest in the same type of trip.
  • We love Hard Core Birding - with Big Days, specific target species and attempts to reach 500-1000 species
  • We love Soft Core Birding where nature, birding and culture often are combined
  • We absolutely adore bird photography trips helping you to get the best shots.
  • Other combinations are possible too. Butterflies, Orchids, Plants, Runnning, Food, Archeology.
  • We provide the Best Value!

  • Once again: Our mottos are:
  • MORE BIRDS!
  • WHY PAY MORE, WHY SEE LESS

Marvelous Spatuletail by Max WaughThe 2017 birdwatching tour and bird photography in Peru program is now rolling out in the tour calendar with lots of interesting tours with birding in Peru and elsewhere. We are for instance doing a three week trip to Mexico in January, which can be split into three different sections, covering San Blas the first week, a week in Yucatan and finally a week in Chiapas where the major part is on the famous Triunfo trail. We are also doing a Birding Japan tour in February.  Both these trips are almost full, except for one-two spots. Photo: Max Waugh
