Those on the pre-cruise extension added a number of additional species which were not found on the main tour with the visit to a Guianan Cock-of-the-Rock lek being a special experience with at least a dozen birds seen at very close quarters. One of the Neotropics most stunning hummingbirds, the Crimson Topaz, was also seen very well, as well as Spangled Cotinga and three additional primates including the critically endangered Pied Tamarin and gorgeous Midas Tamarin.
We are already seeing good interest in our 2024 departure of this special trip and details can be found by clicking here.
