Do you long for travel to a true frontier with large areas of pristine land and where mysteries of nature are yet to be solved? Eagle Optics and Zeiss Sport Optics team up to offer an exciting and adventure-filled trip to the Peruvian Amazon. Set for March 11-19, 2017, Wildside Nature Tours leads the Amazon Riverboat Photo & Birding Adventure. You will be provided with the Zeiss Victory SF binocular to use during the trip and opportunity to purchase it at a discount when the trip ends.

A 165-foot, deluxe riverboat serves as your home for the journey along with daily talks about birds, wildlife, photography, and local culture. Multiple river excursions by motorized skiff occur at different times of the day with trips ashore to explore the rain forest and provide opportunities to see an extensive variety of birds, monkeys, sloths, and pink dolphins—just to name a few.

Highlights include:

  • Pacaya Samiria National Reserve: Stay alert as you visit Peru’s largest national park. Recording over 300 bird species and 10 primate species here, your binoculars are sure to get a workout.
  • Night Excursions: Look for owls, potoos, bats, caiman, frogs, and a lot more as you take a boat ride with spot lights.
  • Piranha Fishing: A dietary staple for many Amazon rain forest natives, and you get to catch one!

As you embark on these exploits and others, you have by your side a renowned group of leaders.

South America’s premier birding guide, Edison Buenaño, bird photographer and Wildside Nature Tour owner, Kevin Loughlin, field sketching and watercolor artist and instructor, Catherine Hamilton, top point-and-shoot photography instructor, and Stephen Ingraham of Zeiss Sport Optics, join you for these incredible experiences. Add two of the top local naturalist guides and you are sure to come away with an invaluable wealth of knowledge and memories surrounding this untamed land and its complex biodiversity.
