Peru: Safari Activity Holiday

Mountainous terrain, vast coastal deserts and steamy, tropical rainforests

Peru's rich and varied wildlife make it an ideal place to watch nature. You can wander in the of the Amazon basin, listening to the sounds of the rainforest. Perhaps you would like to see macaws flitting through the trees, or you could watch giant Amazonian snails slither across your jungle trail? There is no shortage of National Parks and nature reserves in Peru, with over 24 protected areas covering about a tenth of the country, so the only problem you will have is choosing which ones you want to visit.

Most of the nature reserves, however are privately owned and some do not have information points or other facilities for tourists. Many of the nature reserves in Peru are in very remote areas, but even if you do not want to travel into the wild, there are some that are within reach of towns and cities. Peru is an excellent location for a safari holiday.
