North, South and Central America offer a mouthwatering bonanza of wildlife habitats, cultures and opportunities to suit all tastes and constitutions! The Amazon, the world’s largest rainforest; the Andes, the longest mountain chain on Earth; the dramatic landscapes of Patagonia; and the wonderful wetlands of the Brazilian Pantanal — these diverse landscapes contribute to a tapestry of staggering variety and superlatives! The cultures and history of the Americas, too, are every bit as rich. During your Tailormade holiday you may choose to visit to such world-renowned sites as the Maya ruins of Tikal, Easter Island and the Inca ruins at Machu Picchu, in Peru. The region also offers a wonderful and varied selection of bases, and vary from the most of state-of-the-art rainforest and wilderness lodges, to comfortable cattle ranches, to elegant schooners, as well as more traditional hotels and motels.

 

South America, with climatic, altitudinal and geographical extremes as wide as any, holds more bird species than any other continent. Andean Cock-of-the-rock, Andean Condor and numerous hummingbirds and macaws are just some of the avian highlights you might expect to find on a Tailormade holiday to explore the High Andes, cloudforests and Amazon rainforests of Ecuador, Colombia and Peru, Guyana, the stunning Iguazú Falls and the Patagonian coastlines of Chile and Argentina. Mammal enthusiasts will be drawn to the Jaguars and other iconic mammals of the Pantanal — now more accessible than ever before — while offshore islands, such as the Falklands and the Galápagos, offer the perfect tour for the photographer and all other wildlife enthusiasts. We are also able to offer a variety of spectacular cruises to the Galápagos Islands as well as land based options for those who struggle with their sea legs. In Central America and the Caribbean, Tailormade holidays to St. Lucia, Trinidad and Tobago, Jamaica, Cuba, Panama, Mexico, Costa Rica, Honduras, Guatemala and Belize offer the chance for winter and spring sunshine and an exotic cocktail of colourful birds, butterflies and whales — perhaps the perfect place to start if you are not yet hooked on this supremely varied ‘double continent’!
