Central Peru Butterfly
Central Peru has some of the country’s best butterflying destinations, and on this tour we hit a few of our favourites.
Pampa Hermosa, Satipo and Yanachaga Chemillen National Park are perhaps the crown jewel of the route with its amazing concentration of firetips, while the road above Pozuzo has an excellent variety of habitats and overwhelming diversity of species from all families.
For high-elevation fanatics (a.k.a. satyr-lovers!) Bosque Shollet is an excellent destination. Although we do not visit any true lowland sites on this trip, we expect a great variety of butterflies and wonderful photography opportunities. Our basic layout for this – and other butterfly – tours is to spend several days at each site, rather than rush around in the typical birder’s fashion.
First of all, you can’t try to clean-up on “target” species by playing tape (though we will be putting out bait to attract bugs), and besides, with butterflies you’re always finding new species even after several days in the same area. Please contact Us!! for Detailed itinerary, Pricing.
