Adventure Safaris - Wing Shooting Bolivia

 

About the lodges

 

We want to make sure that you feel comfortable while you stay with us, which is why we have two lodges available for you. Both are equipped with the maximum amenities to make you feel at home and enjoy what the experience is all about.

 

About the birds

 

About 15 million birds fly into Bolivia from mid April to the end of November attracted by the sweet aroma of the crops in Santa Cruz. Vast plantations of sorghum, soybean and sunflower are grown making this a very special place for these birds to stay on for the whole season. Among these birds we find mostly doves and pigeons.
