Colombia has quickly risen to stardom as the number one birding destination in South America. With its 1900+ species of birds, it holds more than any other country in the world.

Following this we will head to Agra and the incomparable Taj Mahal before reaching the Chambal River with its Indian Skimmers, and finally the birding mecca of Bharatpur. As well as the amazing wildlife, we will, of course, focus on the wealth of birdlife on offer.
