Wild Colombia

Expedition Highlights

  • Look for over 300 species of birds found in Manizales, Colombia’s mountainous coffee-growing region.
  • Explore Lake Tarapoto and its surrounding forest to search for primates, birds, and pink and gray river dolphins.
  • Search for a variety of large mammals in the Llanos region—giant anteaters, capybaras, howler monkeys, white-tailed deer, and elusive jaguars and pumas.
  • Explore charming Cartagena to discover elegant colonial architecture, white-sand beaches, world-class cuisine, and a vibrant night-life; and view the artifacts of ancient pre-Hispanic cultures at Bogotá’s exquisite Gold Museum.
