Travelers obviously want to see the deservedly-famous Inca sites of Machu Picchu and Cusco, but few realize that in addition to the amazing archaeology, culture, and jaw-dropping scenery, there are wildlife gems hiding in and near the ruins. SouthWild has mapped the best concentrations of incredibly cute Viscachas (which are the very embodiment of the “tribbles” from the eponymous Star Trek episode) and blazing orange-red Andean Cocks-of-the-Rock, and can show these species to you as well as other beautiful species. Furthermore, Cusco might seem to be an unproductive site for wildlife, but in fact, a lake not far from the city has a spectacular assemblage of water birds. Therefore, SouthWild offers you the best in archaeology and hospitality along with unique locations to see and photograph attractive species of mammals and birds.
