Nature Trip Endemic Peru “…Everything was fine and I had a wonderful day. The food was all I needed. I had the chance to have two guides”

Brisson Jacques

“We LOVED our tour with David and Ceero! David was very knowledgeable of the birds in all locations and we felt quite comfortable with our driver, Ceero. The breakfast, snacks, and lunch provided were delicious and the locations we went to were awesome. We had a chance to learn about other wildlife (wild guinea pigs!) and interact with local Peruvians on our tour through the mountains.This trip was not just a great bird tour, but a chance to see a different way of life and experience the Andes” 

Amanda Shafer

 "David, our guide, was excellent, and his expertise shows as we saw 54 bird species!!  Breakfast and lunch were tasty and kept us very happy throughout the day!  I would not hesitate to recommend Endemic Peru to my friends when traveling to Peru!  Thank you so much for everything!  I cannot tell you how happy we were!  :)"

Birding Abra Malaga 02 Days

Day 01: Cusco – Abra Malaga (A prívate Polylepis forest )


We leave very early direct to Malaga Polylepis forest which is located over the 4200 m.a.s.l. in order to see some birds such as the endemic White browed tit-spinetail (Leptasthenura xenothorax); Royal Cinclodes (Cinclodes aricomae); Blue Mantled Thorbill (Chalcostigma stanleyi); Tawny Tit-spinetail (Leptasthenura yanacensis); Stripe Headed Antpitta (Grallaria andicolus); and so many more. The place that we have just mentioned is two hours and a half from Cusco, on the way we will have box lunch and keep walking down through Polylepis forest then we will get the pavement road and birding by the valley toward Ollantaytambo where we will spend one night.


Day 02: Ollantaytambo – Carrizales


This second day we visit Carrizales stop where we will start to go all the way down by the road to the jungle close to Machupiccchu.

A perfect birding site for birders, especially for Tanagers lovers, which is mostly cloud forest where we will have many chances to see Tanagers, flycatchers, ovenbirds, and many more birds of cloud forest. This is a place that you may come back or recommend to someone for watching birds in Peru.
