From the several members of the office staff to the actual tour itself, I have nothing but high praise for my Rockjumper experience. This was my first tour with Rockjumper, but I hope it won’t be my last. Alison and Sarah were tremendously helpful. Rob Williams is as good a leader as I have ever experienced. He not only knows the birds, but he made sure that we all got to see them, showing patience way beyond what I thought necessary. When one of our participants lost his passport, Rob bent over backwards to help this hapless person, never complaining while doing so. Rob always told us what the plan was for the next day. When Plan A didn’t pan out, he had Plan B ready. If something went askew, he handled it with aplomb, always keeping his sense of humour. Did I mention he showed us wonderful birds? Oh, we saw some beautiful ones!
Colombia Birding Tours
Colombia has more bird species than any other country on Earth! A staggering 1900+ species have been recorded, of which 89 are endemic. This massive diversity results from the equally diverse range of habitats; these include three Andean Cordilleras, two inter-Andean valleys, the lowland forests of the Amazon and Orinoco regions, the isolated snow-capped Santa Marta Mountains, as well as coastlines, deserts and lakes.
