Welcome to the homepage of Spanish Nature
The Company for Quality Birding Holidays
Spanish Nature are different from other Companies offering birding Holidays on the following important points:
High quality and comfort of accommodation, food, transport and all other aspects of the tour are as important to us as the birding itself.
We provide alternative programs. Spanish Nature understands that when a couple travel together, sometimes one has less interest in the actual birding and prefers to enjoy other aspects of the visited holiday destination.
Travelling together as friends, this is our philosophy, because we want to enjoy the tour as much as you and we also want to be an integral part of the group.
Our birding guides are of an extremely high standard, maybe this is not necessary to say, but of course we want to assure you, that you will really see all possible birds.
"Recce-trip"- Amazonia de Ecuador
Covering approximately 12 million hectares the major area of the Ecuadorian Amazonia support exuberant vegetation that is typical of humid tropical forests, its western limit is the Andes Mountains Range, Peru lies to the south and Colombia to the north. The temperature varies between 23 C and 26 C and between 300 to 400 cm of rainfall are distributed more or less equally throughout the year, although December through February are the drier months.
The forests consists mainly of Cinnamon, Silk cotton, Jacaranda and several leguminous trees up to almost 50 m in height. The alluvial plains support great concentrations of Palm trees.The principal artery for visitors is the Napo River (the one we are taking), 1400 km long and in some places almost 5 km wide. The 130 small Islands in the Napo river are covered with young forests, which provides refuge and nesting sites for a multitude of bird species, many of them migratory.
The Amazon’s rivers, lakes, streams and marshland’s support over 600 species of fish and more than 250 species of amphibians and reptiles. The lagoons of the Napo and Aquarico river basins are home to colonies of two species of Caymans that crow to over 4 m in length. Typical South American mammals include Armadillos, Honey Bears and Sloths, Tapirs, Monkeys and Jaguar. Birds are the richest group of vertebrates, and approximately 1000 species live in a variety of forest habitats, lagoons and open areas. Familiar sightings will be parrots, macaws and tanagers.
