Kaa Iya National Park

The Kaa Iya del Gran Chaco National Park, located in south-eastern Bolivia, is the country’s largest protected area (3.5 million hectares) and is the best conserved of this type of ecosystem in South America. It is home to 330 bird species, 108 mammal species, 43 amphibian species, 72 reptile species and 880 (registered) plant species and an infinite number of insects!

Wildlife Safari

The park is one of the best places on the continent to see large mammals and so we have prepared a safari (the only one of its kind in South America) to see native wildlife in their own habitat. You will ride in comfortable 4x4s to discover hiding places and pools where you can watch and photograph large mammals going about their daily business.

The wildlife in the park follow wide trails to gather round water holes where, in some cases, observation towers have been built for you to observe the animals from.

Animals everywere

The singular characteristics of this region give you a good chance of spotting a jaguar (Panthera onca), a puma (Felis concolor), along with other large animals, such as the tapir (Tapirus terrestres), the giant anteater (Myrmecophaga tridactyla), deer (Mazama gouazoubira), peccaries (Tayassuidae), the endemic endangered Chacoan Peccary (Catagonus wagneri), along with a wealth of other animals.

The Kaa Iya del Gran Chaco National Park is the highlight of this tour, where we will stay for around three full days going out during the day and at night to observe the most iconic animals with a very good chance of ticking off each one on your list.

On the way to the park we will stop off in the town of San José de Chiquitos to visit the church, one of the Jesuit Missions in the region, declared a cultural heritage site by UNESCO.
