On a trip around Colombia you want to see as much of its natural treasures as possible. You are spoilt with choices in a country that tops the diversity hit lists on all levels: people, wildlife, birds, ecosystems, culture. Where to begin? Well, that's up to you. All we say is that technically you can reach a place where you'll see hundreds of capybaras, caimans, deer, exotic birds and even more exotic fauna such as anacondas and pumas in their natural habitat within ONE DAY from Bogotá. A no-brainer if you are looking to organize a jam-packed itinerary across the country. Beware though, this isn't your usual tourist hotspot - it's an off-beat adventure to remember!

The Pipra Filicauda, more commonly known as the wire-tailed manakin, is a small stunner. Only about 25 km from Yopal we operate tours across a private gallery forest that has revealed itself to us as a "manakin hotspot" with guaranteed sightings of this colouful species. Whether you are into birdwatching or not, observing this little tricoloured "moonwalker" won't leave you indifferent.
Birdwatching in Colombia is a diverse, colourful and interesting experience for birdwatchers and novices alike. Recently we came to love nocturnal birdwatching. When it gets dark, a different world opens its doors to the birdwatcher: owls, nighthawks, nightjars, potoos and night-herons along with grasshoppers and frogs cater for an impressive, mystical and fascinating soundscape. Here is our Nocturnal Birding List for a night out in Los Llanos!
Colombia is the world’s number one in bird diversity and thus a top destination for bird watching. While Casanare probably is one of Colombia’s best kept birding secrets.
From lush Andean foothills to vast prairies (‘Los Llanos’) leading right into the Orinoco region with its rivers, mangrove swamps and savannah forests, this department boasts with an abundance and richness in birds – from familiar to exotic. Here comes the ultimate sample list.
