SPECIAL NOTICE: DUE TO SAFETY CONCERNS FOR FOREIGNERS TRAVELING OUTSIDE OF MAJOR CITIES, OUR BOLIVIAN PARTNERS, DRIVERS ETC. HAVE ADVISED US TO NOT OPERATE NATURE TOURS UNTIL THE SITUATION CHANGES.
Bolivia is a biological & cultural treasure nestled between Brazil, Peru, Chile and Paraguay. It is the poorest and least developed country in South America, and at the same time one of the biologically and culturally richest, safest and friendliest.
The eastern lowlands are a mixture of Chaco, Pantanal wetlands and Amazon rainforest. These lowland tropics occupy 70% of the total area of Bolivia, but are home to only 20% of the population. As you move west into the foothills of the Andes the habitat changes to dry forests with impressive cliffs to heavily forested slopes, Polylepis forests and finally Puna grasslands and marshes in the Altiplano at around 12,000 feet. Above that Paramo grasslands lead up to the edge of the permanently snow covered peaks soaring to over 19,700 feet.
There are few places in the world where you can drive through high altitude Paramo grasslands, drop a few hundred feet to the Puna biome, continue down to elfin forests, cloud forests, deciduous forests, subtropical rainforests and at the end of exhilarating day be at a nice lodge in the Amazon.
Bolivia is also known for its colorful people and fascinating history. Today, a full two-thirds of Bolivia's populace are Indians, descendants of the Incas and Aymars. The colorful, traditional dress of the Indian women with their rounded hats is one vision most easily identified with Bolivia.
