South America wildlife holidays

The wildlife of South America is as varied as it is colourful and abundant, and it's waiting for you to discover on your holiday.

It is a vast continent of contrasts and seemingly impossible juxtapositions. You can spot penguins in Antarctica - and also near the Equator, in the natural paradise of the Galapagos Islands.

There are big cats, with pumas ranging around Chile's National Park and jaguars throughout the jungle areas, particularly in Guyana.

Then there is the Amazon rainforest, home to many thousands of animals, birds and insects, some known, many not. And how can we not mention the Southern Right whales off Peninsula Valdes or the coast of Colombia and the amazing birding opportunities in thehighlands, cloud forests and Amazon lowlands.

Andean Condor

The iconic condor soars over much of the South American Andes, an awe-inspiring sight as they float on the thermals and gaze down, looking for their next meal.

We have also seen the incredibly shy spectacled bear on our treks, as well as flamingoes, vicuñas, the iconic llamas and the list goes on.
