Wildlife Holidays in Panama

Tell me about Panama …

Panama forms the narrowest part of the Mesoamerican Isthmus, which is not only of huge historical importance linking the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans by rail and canal, but also of considerable biogeographical importance as the land bridge between North and South America.

It is the southernmost country of Central America. It has a tropical climate and inland its most dominant feature is its central spine of mountains.

The customs, language and culture of the Panamanians are mainly Caribbean and Spanish. Many of the country’s musical and artistic traditions reflect a blending of Native American, African and European cultures. It has one unique art form, ‘molas’ – attractive and fascinating embroidered panels made by the Kuna tribe.

What’s special about its wildlife?

Panama offers some of the best bird watching in Central America. It is home to nearly one thousand bird species in an area covering just 80,000 square kilometres! Many South American as well as North American species are found here.

It has prime locations at which to witness spectacular spring and autumn bird migrations. Panama also contains large tracts of avian-rich tropical rainforest, of which the Soberania National Park extends right down to the suburbs of Panama City and the famous Panama Canal.

Panama is home to over 200 species of mammal – from sloths and anteaters to tapirs and Kinkajous.

Naturetrek tours to Panama

Naturetrek offers two wildlife holidays to Panama: a bargain bird watching holiday and a bargain mammal tour. These are both based in the rainforests of Soberania National Park and the famous Canopy Tower, where the main observation deck offers superb 360° views over the canopy and a chance to see otherwise elusive species.

  • Mammals such as Mantled Howler Monkey, Nine-banded Long-nosed Armadillo, White-nosed Coati, grisons, soledons & bats that make tents!
