      Wildlife spotting in the Gran Chiquitania and Parc Nacional Bolivia
      A very well organised trip that allowed us to spot many wildlife species in Bolivia across two different biospheres - the Gran Chiquitania and the Amazon Basin. Hugo (guide), Cesar (driver) and Natalie (cook) was the team for our 3 days in the Gran Chiquitania. The food was delicious. And Hugo and Cesar really did go all out for the sighting of the jaguar. Am very impressed by Cesar's eyesight and how he could spot and identify wildlife from afar. Hugo also impressed with his knowledge of the animal species. For our 3 days in Parc Nacional Madidi, Nelson was our guide. He also ensured that we had a fulfilling experience by bringing us to the areas where we are more likely to spot different wildlife species. The highlight for this part of the tripwould have been piranha fishing in the lake. Overall, a well organised customised trip where we learnt a lot about the biodiversity of Bolivia

      Excellent experience on the Jaguarland tour
      With the right expectations, this is a terrific trip. We did two nights to Jaguarland to experience Bolivian wildlife. We experienced tons of it (no jaguars, unfortunately but Mother Nature is her own boss). We were really happy with Nick's: 1. Quick replies to email inquiries and planning emails in advance of the trip. 2. Complete professionals. They were on time for our pick-up, they had a good quality vehicle with working A/C, the guide's English was completely fluent, the cook carefully followed our food protocols (accommodating some unusual allergies and a vegetarian), the driver was attentive to the road and drove safely. 3. The privacy of the property where you view wildlife is incredible--we had all the wildlife to ourselves. 4. Shared the amazing wildlife photos that the guide took with us since our camera was not nearly as nice as his. 5. The food was amazing and abundant. We felt so well cared for by our cook. She made amazing meals for us. I am a vegetarian who doesn't like eggs--about every time I take a trip and explain this, someone still tries to feed me eggs but never ONCE did that happen this trip. They were also very careful about my spouse's unusual allegies. All the food was cooked fresh and the cook cleaned up the kitchen and used hygienic practices to keep things sanitary. 6. Our guide was both passionate about wildlife and knowledgeable about it. He was attentive to our needs and comfort and kept us informed about the schedule and plans. His English was as good as if it were his primary language. We saw all the species of monkeys in the area, a variety of macaws, capybaras, Jabiru storks, rheas, a jagarundi(!), foxes, coati, all three types of deer (swamp, red brocket, gray brocket), peccaries, sloth, agouti, cayman, burrowing owls, tons more kinds of birds, a snake of some sort (common--gray with a yellow belly) and some huge toads. Manage your expectations: 1. You are camping. It's hot in the tents on a mattress and the facilities are basic (there is a flush toilet and a shower). 2. Nature doesn't have a schedule--you see what you see, there's no baiting to coax out the animals and no guarantees of any sightings. 3. Mosquitos. Plan to be completely covered and use a spray. Completely covered we still got bites on our hands and faces. There are times when it feels like there is a cloud of mosquitos in the vehicle with you (certain times each morning and evening). 4. No cell service or wifi (mostly--my spouse was able to go to the working encampment and get a enough signal to work a bit). 5. This is not like an African safari game drive--while you will see a lot, the animals don't lounge around and they don't let you get very close. If you want photos, your cell phone won't cut it. 6. You spend a lot of time driving and that is really the only activity. It's too hot to walk around at midday--if you can manage to take a nap in the heat, that's about all you can do. (The property would be greatly enhanced if they added some shaded outdoor areas for hammocks/chairs to relax during this hot time of day). The main complaints I see people making is about the cost. If you read the above, you can decide if it's worth it to you. It is very expensive for Bolivia, yes. For us, it was worth it completely. A unique, private experience with a professional company.

      Incredibly passionate
      I went with Nick's Adventures on a 3Days/2nights trip to KAA-IYA (the park is highly recommended, I've written a seperate review). Their communication is fast, friendly and clear, every member of their team was incredibly nice and professional and the level of comfort they were able to provide at such a remote place was far above my expectations but what makes travelling with them really special is their love and passion for what they do. I could feel that they were as excited about the trip as I was and combined with their experience and know-how turned this into the greatest wildlife experience I've ever had.

      Above and beyond, conservatorship, great tours from an amazing human being...
      Nick and company are perhaps the best way to experience the Amazon and its amazing wildlife. I have lived in Bolivia for over 10 years and have sent many clients to Nick's Adventures Bolivia and have never heard a complaint. Nick's passion for wildlife goes beyond his business. Nick has passionately worked on conservation projects in Bolivia for many years and has raised awareness of the threats facing the Bolivian Amazon among his clients and locals alike. If you are in Santa Cruz, give Nick a call, and head out to the jungle for an adventure.

      Central Bolivia Birding Trip
      We were on a 12-day birding trip with Nick's Adventure Bolivia and it was absolutely amazing. Nick worked with us patiently to create a customized birding route to fit our needs and budget. Our guide, Saul Arias, was an outstanding expert bird guide. He was able to identify many hard-to-see/identify species by ear and sight. We saw nearly 300 species in 12 days, 140 of them being new birds to us. We cannot wait to be back in Bolivia with Nick!!! Thank you! Jun & Noel Brooklyn, U.S.A.

      Touring Bolivia
      Nick's Adventure planned a wonderful trip for my friend and myself. We chose Nick mainly for the jaguarland experience. They ended up planning our entire Bolivia trip. We toured Santa Cruz, La Paz, Trinidad, and Uyini. They organized different tour companies for us in each place we visited. They followed through on all of our flights and were very attentive to our needs. The only tour company we used that we did not really like was in Trinidad. We were only there for one day, and that was mainly to go on the Amazon River to see the pink dolphins. We did see the dolphins with our eyes, but very difficult to photograph as they only surfaced for a few seconds at a time. If going to Uyini, realize that it is at the top of the Andes mountains, (very high altitude.) I got really sick with a rapid heart beat for 36 hours, and that was with taking altitude pills. We wanted to go to a lower altitude, but the flights to Uyini are very limited. I did survive, but it was very scary.

      Excellent Tour Operator in Bolivia
      Nick's is the ONLY tour agency I would consider touring Bolivia with. Communications were prompt and helpful. Arrangements were thorough, well thought out and completed with everything as promised. But most importantly, if things go wrong, Nick's agency is the one you want to cover your back. When EcoJet cancelled our internal flights, TWICE, Nick went to bat for us. Through his knowledge of systems in Bolivia, after the first flight was cancelled, he was able to make knowledgeable recommendations for how to proceed and then arranged alternative transportation and accommodations for us. When EcoJet then cancelled our next flight, for no reason, Nick literally drove to their office and worked hard to get us again booked onto the flight. He also devised an alternative plan in case the flight was again cancelled. We always felt supported and confident that whatever happened, Nick was there to ensure we would be able to resume the trip as best as possible and also ensure that we would return to La Paz in time for our international flight departure. In addition to his expertise, Nick has an excellent team that handled payments efficiently and also helped with arrangements. His entire team was prompt and kind in their communications. I would totally trust his agency and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone wishing to tour Bolivia.

      Fantastic trip to Kya-Iya National Park Bolivia
      Had a fantastic trip to Kaa-Iya National Park with Nick's Adventures Bolivia. Amazing animal sightings - we got close to a lot of Tapir, and our final night drive we had extended views of a Puma and a Jaguar. Also Geoffroy's cat, foxes, Armadillo, deer, peccaries, Toucans and lots of raptors and other birds. We were lucky enough to have Nick as our guide, and he worked incredibly hard to make sure that we had the best chance of seeing wildlife. Nick is an expert on wildlife and conservation in Bolivia and more widely, and he was very generous and entertaining in sharing his knowledge. Facilities at the lodge are basic but fine, and Nick and team (driver Jose and cook Yetsi) kept us well-fed and comfortable. Kaa-Iya is an incredibly pristine park, harsh but beautiful. With the delayed rains and heat, conditions for the wildlife are very difficult, and it was inspiring to see the team making water drops in some areas and arranging to do more.

      Stunning Amboro National Park
      Amboro National Park has stunningly beautiful landscape in every direction you look. The accommodation is set at the base of the valley, incircled by towering rock formations and a beautiful stream with waterfalls by the eating area. Lots of options for beautiful walks on forest trails, swimming in plunge pools, panoramic views and bird watching. My guide through Nicks Adventures was Jorge- such great company- genuinely enthusiastic about everything we saw, from bizarre catepillars to beautiful mackaws but could also sit in quite contemplation with me. I could happily of stayed a few more nights. The food was incredibly delicious and varied and there were lots of hammocks and sitting areas to relax. This experience far exceeded my expectations, Amboro is incredibly beautiful.

      Unique and Brilliant Wildlife Adventure
      San Carlos Reserve was an absolute unique and brilliant wildlife adventure. I saw 22 mammal species, 6 reptiles and an astounding 146 bird species thanks to my bird genius guide, Hugo. As the first tourist in 3 years, I felt everyone was working really hard to make this an outstanding experience- I had a guide, driver, cook and one or 2 farm hands that knew the land intimately. So many different habitats to explore. A highlight was seeing a giant anteater during a night spotlighting. I was so close to spotting a jaguar-we could hear it calling and getting closer and closer until a cough I'd been holding in came out and it moved away. There was definitely a 'wild west'vibe and cowboys would report in puma and Jaguar sightings and footprints to optimise our chances. Accommodation was rustic but comfortable and the food (I'm vegetarian) was creative and delicious- thanks Oscar. If you love a completely non touristy, wildlife rich adventure, heat, dust and bumpy roads, sitting on a wooden chair in the back of a truck spotlighting, walking and driving through several types of forest and wetlands... this is a fabulous choice. You also genuinely contribute to conservation- lots of farmers kill Jaguar because they kill their cattle- on this farm about 60 a year - but ecotourism gives an alternative. Everything was very well organised, Nick was great at helping me put together a diverse itinerary ( I also went to Jaguarland and Amboro National Park), promptly replied to emails and was genuinely passionate about the wildlife of Bolivia. I have nothing but praise and have lots of priceless memories!!!

      Brilliant introduction to Bolivia’s natural treasures
      Nick provided the trip of a lifetime. Our tour of Jaguarland and Kaa-Iya offered unparalleled wildlife sightings, including jaguar, puma, ocelot, jaguarundi, river dolphins, sloth, capybara, many species of primate and so much more. Nick has a professional, congenial and incredibly hardworking staff, and the food was first-rate. Travel in Bolivia requires a sense of adventure and plenty of improvisation, and an appreciation of biodiversity, even when it can get a little close to home. But there’s nothing like having a national park, and all its natural treasures, to yourself.

      Authentic and diverse Bolivia
      For the second time we visited the amazing country Bolivia. And for the second time we choose for Nick's Adventure to organize the trip. This time we went together with Nick to Jaguarland, a working farm with beautifull scenery and with big chances to see big cats. We managed to see 2 jaguars :D. However this tour is not easy (long driving), we enjoyed it a lot. Lot of birds and smaller animals, like monkey, deer, rea's etc. We stayed in comfortable tents, but they have a little building with kitchen, shower, toilet. The cook prepared great food. Not a luxury destination, but camping was very comfortable like this. We also visited Toro-Toro (a hidden gem!), Titicaca lake and Madidi. All places are very authentic and different. This is what makes Bolivia such a great travel destination. And with Nick's Adventure you are in good hands and will travel relaxed. Nick and his team know the best places to go and keep in touch when needed during the trip.

      Great adventure in Kaa-Iya
      We did the 4 day/3 nights Kaa-Iya tour with Nick's adventures and had a great time here! Everything was organized really well. Nick replied quickly to all e-mails we sent, we had enthusiastic and knowledgeable guides (Ramon and Cesar) that could spot animals already from hundreds of meters away, and we had a great cook (Aldo) that prepared delicious meals. The tour was expensive, but worth the money, even though we did not spot the jaguar. It was an unique experience to follow an ocelot by foot and being surrounded by a huge group of peccaries.

      Great way to manage your Amboro trip
      Did the 2x night/3x day stay at Refugio los Volcanes. It's true that organizing through Nick's Adventures was extremely expensive by Bolivian standards, and I guess I could have cobbled the whole thing together on my own and on the fly, but for the price not only did I have all the information I needed in advance to prepare, and a frictionless fantastic stay at the incredible Refugio in Amboro with door-to-door pickup and drop-off, but I also had the full time insight and expertise of my assigned guide, Ramon, to draw from, who immeasurably added to the experience with his sharp eye and extensive knowledge and insights into the flora and fauna of the jungle, and culture and politics of the country, as we trekked around one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen on earth. We also made a stop on the outbound trip at a wildlife preserve in Santa Cruz where we were able to get extremely close to four different kinds of monkey and a three-toed sloth. Given this was my first trip to Bolivia, and I had a packed itinerary, it was definitely worth it to pay the extra amount to have such a well-managed and well-delivered experience. You can find my separate review of the Refugio itself here: https://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowUserReviews-g303189-d1788691-r910061696-Refugio_Los_Volcanes-Samaipata_Santa_Cruz_Department.html

    We went to Bolivia over Thanksgiving, after much debate whether we should cancel the trip due to the state department travel warning. Eventually we opted to skip visiting La Paz, and just transiting in the airport to fly to Uyuni to see the Salt Flat, and then fly to Santa Cruz and stay for a day before leaving Bolivia. We contacted Nick on ideas for what to do in Santa Cruz, as we were worried about the protest situation and did not really want to explore an unfamiliar city on our own. Nick responded promptly with several day option tours, and assured us Santa Cruz was safe.

    On the other hand, there were more news of violence, roadblocks, food and gas shortages etc in La Paz, and we could not really make up our mind till the last minute. Nick kept us informed all the time as the situation developed. But we still did not confirm the half day sloth and wildlife tour till we were in Bolivia.

    And what a great tour this was ! Hugo was our guide for the tour. We drove to the Jardin Botanical Garden about 45 minutes from the city. And Hugo unloaded all kinds of equipment from the car, a big tripod, telescope, binoculars, etc. And we immediately knew we were in for a treat. One could explore the park on his own, but you do need a guide and the right spotting equipment to really appreciate the wildlife the park has to offer. The set up easily costs couple thousand dollars ! We saw many kinds of birds through the telescope, and Hugo patiently explained the different species. He also took pictures and videos with his camera mounted onto the telescope, and we got the most amazing videos of the birds, monkeys, alligators, turtles, etc. We also saw a sloth, which undoubtedly was the most popular attraction of the day.

    Hugo was so knowledgeable and passionate about the wildlife, we felt like we just earned a degree in Biology the afternoon we were with Hugo ! He also showed us some videos of a jaguar he took on his other trips, and explained how he waited the whole day for the jaguar to come out ! We knew we had to come back to Bolivia, and of course ask for Hugo to be our Jaquar spotting guide !

    Thank you Nick and Hugo, for an amazing time in Santa Cruz.

    Bolivia:wildlife tours.It's probably not your first choice for this type of holiday.Well it should be.The tour I took to Jaguarland with nicksadventuresbolivia.com is right up there with the best in the world.As the name implies, the main attraction is for a sighting of a jaguar.But it's so much more than this.You should see a variety of many other species of mammals, birds and reptiles.The guides and the support staff were superb.They went out of their way and spent many hours on the lookout for wildlife.The food was excellent and the bed was comfortable.His office staff even sorted out a boarding pass for my flight.The tour was very well organised.If you book one of his tours I don't think you'll be disappointed.Frank Lockwood,UK.

    Great AM sloth tour! Nick's team had great communication by email around the time of the local strikes and fortunately we were able to schedule a tour during an in-between strikes time. Guide Iver and the driver met us promptly at our hotel in a comfortable vehicle and we went to the Botanical Gardens. He was knowledgeable about the flora and fauna, and we did get a wonderful viewing of a sloth!
    After, we went to the nearby town of Cotoca, where we saw a few more sloths in the main square, and he led us around the local Sunday market. I felt he was attentive to showing us the culture and even bought a few samples of local sweets to try. In addition, I could tell he was keeping tabs on us, making sure we were all accounted for in the busy market area. Overall a great experience and I would absolutely book with them again!

    The tour guides picked us up in the hotel and brought us safely back without issue. We asked for an English-speaking guide, and they provided that without issue. Given issues with recent fires, there was only one sloth inside the botanical gardens. Since they knew we wanted to see sloths, the guide then took us to a separate town square to find 3 more. He also led us around the local market and described different delicacies/items to us. It ended up being a very well, fun addition to the day, and they spent more time with us than advertised. Would highly recommend to others.

    I have been in Santa Cruz for 3 weeks and decided at the last minute to try to book a tour to see the sloths. Best decision I ever made!! Not only was he beyond accommodating to my tight schedule but friendly and so knowledgeable. I learned so much about the wildlife here in South America and saw sloths and so much more!! Nick is a wealth of information! In the few hours my daughter and I spent with him, we learned more about Santa Cruz than we had in the entire previous three weeks here. He recommended local establishments that were spot on! I am so grateful for the amazing day we had and can't wait to come back later this year and go see more of Boliva with these guys!!

    I cannot say enough great things about Nick and his tour. He was the most accommodating and genuinely caring tour guide. He picked us up from the airport with waters and empanadas in hand, waited for us to get settled and made sure we got our COVID tests in time. Nick and his driver, Jose took us on a fun adventure to see the the sand dunes and even found us a sloth! He took us around the city and showed us some really amazing local spots. The best part was his energy and knowledge of Bolivia. We learned so many interesting things!
    Jose was an excellent driver and even stayed with the car to watch over our things while we were out.
    Nick checked up on us even after we left to make sure we got back home safely.
    Amazing, fun tour with truly great people!

    The tour with Nick was very worth. Nick knew where the animals were. I saw many sloths, tucans, turtles, two different kinds of monkeys, many birds etc.
    Nick also gave me a lot of background information. This opens your eyes and you get closer to Bolivia 🇧🇴.
    Recommendation; book a tour with Nick 👍

    Hi So happy you enjoy both our Sloth Tour and the trip to Lomas de Arena. We are happy that you also made the most of the advice we gave you. It was dissapointing to hear from you that another agency did not want to help you unless booking a tour. We want everyone who visits Bolivia and especially Santa Cruz to have a great time regardless of booking a tour with us or not and reading this review really enforces how important this is. Wish you all the best for the future travels in Bolivia and hope to see you again one day in this amazing country Cheers Nick and the team.

    Nick was incredibly helpful and responsive over email in organising two half-day trips, tailor-made when I had limited free time in Santa Cruz. The sloth tour and Santa Cruz city tour were wonderful, I had a great guide, very knowledgeable, learnt a lot, saw a lot in the short time and got to try lots of delicious local treats!
