WILDLIFE HOLIDAYS

A wildlife holiday is a perfect combination with almost anything, whether it is beach, city or adventure, a honeymoon, family holiday or just a two week break. There are small pockets of South and Central America that are outstanding for this and certain places where you have the opportunity to see birds and mammals that are endemic to Latin America.
From the more serious birder to the local enthusiast to someone that knows nothing about them, South and Central America has such a colourful range of birds that it is hard not be impressed. The sheer brightness of reds, yellows and blues of a scarlet macaw or the variants of greens, purple and oranges of a hummingbird means your head will be turned and your camera clicked.

For the larger mammals the continent is unique; Jaguar, tapir and giant anteater to name but a few and although difficult to see the areas that are home to them offer a whole lot more. A wildlife adventure here is similar to that of an African safari with early morning drives or walks and evening excursions and each with expert guides and naturalists to guide you.

BEST Wildlife DESTINATIONS

Brazilian wildlife

Brazil is home to two of the best areas for wildlife; the Pantanal and the Amazon.  The Pantanal is best described as a small window of Africa in the heart of South America and although it does not have the ‘big five’ it does have its own unique fauna.  The Amazon is an atmospheric place where you will always hear more than you see due to the density of the foliage but where the small things take priority.

Wildlife in Belize

Belize now has more national parks than Costa Rica and in their push for a protected country they have managed to save some of the most endangered areas of forest in Central America.  This has led to an increase in numbers of both jaguar and Pumas as well as some of the smaller cats making this a wildlife destination like no other.

Wildlife in the Galapagos

A Galapagos holiday is a holiday like no other.  No-where else in the world would your guide say to you prior to departure, ‘you may not touch the wildlife, but the wildlife can touch you’.  It is a magical experience, a place where you can be nose to nose with a seal pup on the beach or swim with seals in the water as they do summersaults around you.  The wildlife is as diverse as the islands themselves and it is a destination that must be on everyone’s wish list.

NEED TO KNOW

When staying in any wildlife lodge all activities are included, unless specified otherwise.  At each place you can decide what excursions you would like to do with your guide on any given day, giving you the freedom to do what you like best.

We had a wonderful three weeks on a tailor made itinerary for just two of us. The organisation by Latin Odyssey was faultless and we have no hesitation in recommending them
