This is a vast country with few inhabitants, and nowhere is this more noticeable than in the Chaco. For many, this Infierno Verde (Green Hell) is the major attraction of the country, and in fact Paraguay offers the only realistic chance of seeing all the endemic Chaco birds on one single trip. Birds aside, Paraguay is also one of the best mammal watching countries in all of South and Central America. Where else do you stand decent chances of Jaguar, Puma and Geoffroy’s Cat in a single nation? Add the re-discovered Chaco Peccary, Lowland Tapir, Maned Wolf, Giant Anteater, a host of armadillos, monkeys and remarkable rodents, and you might double your Neotropical mammal list in just a single trip here! And speaking of mammals, here in Guacho country, we’ll have ample opportunity to enjoy typical asado (BBQ), just as the Paraguayans do.

Paraguay appeals as a wonderful introduction to Neotropical birding, as well as a vital clean-up operation for the experienced traveler. Add together some incredibly range-restricted or rare species such as White-winged and Sickle-winged Nightjar, Helmeted Woodpecker, Giant Snipe, Russet-winged Spadebill, Saffron-cowled Blackbird and Cock-tailed Tyrant, plus great mammals and unique habitats, and you have yourself a thrilling and enriching tour to South America.
