For years we have explored different places in Latin America, including the most remote and inaccessible areas, constantly searching for new, better locations in which to carry out our activities. We continue to motivate more and more people towards the creation and growth of new reserves, supporting local birdwatchers and involving the community in such a way that the services offered to our clients are constantly improving. We have selected a team of biologists and guides with experience in birds and wildlife who work 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, travelling around the country and who have, over the course of years, developed the abilities necessary to offer an incredible experience whilst demonstrating their professionalism and charisma in the field. As a Colombian company, we have the ability to offer the itinerary and logistics that match your needs. We adapt to the requirements of each group, with the capability and flexibility to be able to offer personalized service, meaning that a tour in the hands of Manakin Nature Tours goes smoothly.
