A comprehensive sweep through diverse habitats from arid coasts to Amazon rainforest, from Humboldt penguins on the Pacific coast to tropical cloud forest in the Andean foothills.

He will also discuss his favourite bird, the cuckoo (of which Peru boasts 16 species).

The tour culminates with five nights in the Tambopata National Reserve, an area of pristine rainforest covering over 275,000 hectares, home to the world's largest macaw clay lick and a record number of animal species including the rare harpy eagle.
