Tour Considerations

What to expect on a 4 nights birdwatching tour at Posada Amazonas?

Although all of our guides have basic bird identification skills, only a handful truly qualify as birding guides – able to identify hundreds of species by sound and sight. Our birdwatching expeditions not only have an especially designed program but also a trained birding guide. Explore different habitats from the road’s secondary forest along the way to the lodge, search for birds from the river banks, watch macaws or toucans from the canopy tower, look for endemics birds at the bamboo forest, visit a parrot clay lick, explore the oxbow lake and do a birding night walk.
