Nature & Wildlife Activities Bolivia | Bolivian Life

Nature & Wildlife

An ecological masterpiece, abundant in wildlife and teaming with precious plant species, Bolivia is one of the few places left in the world where travelers can experience mother nature at her finest.

A staggering 40% of the earth’s animal and plant life can be found in Bolivia’s well preserved national parks, making it one of the best destinations in the world to go wildlife watching. Nature lovers will appreciate observing exotic creatures thriving in their natural habitat, an increasingly rare occurrence in today’s diminishing ecosystems.

Whilst there’s nothing more thrilling than spotting an animal in the wild, there are a handful of wildlife refuges and conservation parks throughout the country providing a safe haven for some of Bolivia’s most vulnerable creatures. Travellers have the unique opportunity to volunteer as caregivers, bonding with animals as they help to rehabilitate and release them back into the wild.

From elusive jaguars to pink river dolphins, Bolivia’s parks and jungles are famed not only for their rich flora and fauna, but also for their remote indigenous communities and diverse landscapes. An unparalleled adventure for nature lovers, exploring Bolivia’s remote and largely untouched locations is a wonderful way to experience the types of sights, smells and sounds so rarely encountered in today’s developed world.
