Why Birding Peru with Kolibri Expeditions?

MORE BIRDS!
An ecotourism experience that fits your time constraints, budget, skills and fitness level. DON’T PAY MORE TO SEE LESS.

Don't pay more to see less. Apart from bird watching holidays in Peru we also organize bird photography and eco-tourism trips to Peru, South America and Worldwide.

Peru bird watching tours can be customized to fit all comfort levels. Our expert guides take into account your birding experience and help you reach a Higher Skill Level.

Fixed departures in our calendar have lower prices. For some tours such as the 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 price that fits your budget.

Use the category menu or the calendar to find a trip that suits your needs in content and time frame. Check tour length to find a trip of preferred length of time. For those with very limited time we recommend look at 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 in the field meal services, which allows more birding time than sit-down meals.
  • We provide free, completely safe treated drinking water and this way avoid plastic disposable bottles. Doing our part to combat plastic pollution in South America where there is lack of recycling and garbage treatment. Furthermore bottled water is a waste of natural resources and energy. Water is filtered and treated with micro pore systems.
  • We involve and train local guides.
  • We have pioneered new birding areas some that have become part of the regular birding circuit today.
  • We have the longest track record of organizing Pelagic Trips 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. Even self-guided trips, if you want only some of the logistics taken care of. And we provide for every level of comfort and pace. Your requirements are our guideline. We can pair you up with others who are interested 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 Relaxed Birding where nature, birding and culture often are combined.
  • We love Bird Photography trips, helping you to get the best shots.
  • Also other Fauna, rare plant and orchid trips.

  • MORE BIRDS!

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 Birding Japan tour in February and we continue promoting our 5 day tours with several departures scheduled already for 2017.  Also check our updated longer tours to Manu and North Peru, which have tiered pricing. Tiered pricing means that you can save money by chosing more basic lodging or you could pay more for more comfort and some perks.  Another new feature this year is that our scheduled tours save you money. The scheduled tours come with $20/day discount.  Check the calendar to see our scheduled tours to make a reservation straight away.
