 Amboro Trips To Ichilo

Amboro park Ichilo tours

Amboro Trips To Ichilo  were trips to a beutiful aerea  inside Amboro park, it was posible to visit a cave used as dorm for Oilbirds (Steatornis caripensis) Amboro Tours was about the only tour operator  that used to run tours to this specific detonation in the north side of Amboro National park, but due to reasons that can not be written on this website most tours have  stopped going to Ichilo. These reasons involved the inhabitants of these communities that are migrants from the highlands of Bolivia.

Amboro National park


Amboro National park

Amboro National Park is big land adjacent to Cerro Amboro. it was officially declared a protected area on the 23rd December 1973. But it was not until August 1984 that was legally given the status of National park (ANP) and received some protection from immigrants campesinos, hunters and logging companies. In october 1991 the park triangular area of 400.000 acres was enlarged to 1.500.000 acres by Supreme Decree. In october 1995 Amboro National Park was reduced to1.000.000 acres when its peripheral third was downgraded to an integrated management

Our Amboro Trips To Ichilo iused to be one the most far way entrance to  Amboro park. It is  on the border with Carrasco National park 

Amboro National park is a large wilderness of one and a half million acres that straddles the eastern foothills of the Andean mountains in the Department of Santa Cruz, Bolivia.I lies edactly at the point where the Andean cordllera turns abruptly north-west, and continues towards southern Peru. After having run 3,000 miles due north from Tierra del Fuego. This elbow and its low-lying hiterland is the meeting point of four very different geographical zones, the southern rim of the Amazona basin (with its humid tropical forest) the western edge of the brasilian shield (with its sub-tropical deciduous forest) limit of the temperate woodland ofh the Chaco and the very diverse subtropical and temparate forest of the Andean mountains themselves. It is not surprising then to find that the park contains eleven Holdridge Life Zones (the same as the whole of Costa Rica) from the warn humid foret of the lowlands to the cactus deserts adn cloud forestof the uplands

This mosaic of ecosystems shelters a correspondingly rich diversity of plants and animals and Amboro´s unique position - lying as it does on the elbow of the Andes - is a major thoroughfare (a bottleneck if you like) around wich many migranting species have to pass to reach their wintering grounds
