Ecuador - Photo Safari

+ More details


Enjoy Ecuador's world-class biodiversity during a two-week photo safari that will take you through the mysterious cloudforests of Mindo, the lush rainforests of the Amazon, the exotic and threatened Choco, and the mighty volcanoes of the Andes. You can also join the extension to the enchanted Galápagos Islands.

Your photo safari will start in the mighty Amazon jungle, and not just any part of it. You will visit the upper Amazon basin, which is regarded as the single most biodiverse region on the planet.

Three hours drive after an inland flight and you will arrive to Mindo, the cloudforest with the greatest number of species of amphibians and reptiles (=120), and the second with the greatest number of bird species (~500).

Two hours drive from Mindo and you will arrive at the second most diverse hotspot on Earth, the Choco rainforest. The reserve you will visit protects over 400 species of birds, 300 of moths and butterflies, and 100 of amphibians and reptiles.
