Noel Kempff Mercado National Park
The National Park is one of the largest (1,523,000 ha) and most intact parks in the Amazon Basin. With an altitudinal range of 200 m to nearly 1,000 m, it is the site of a rich mosaic of habitat types from Cerrado savannah and forest to upland evergreen Amazonian forests. The park boasts an evolutionary history dating back over a billion years to the Precambrian period. An estimated 4,000 species of flora as well as over 600 bird species and viable populations of many globally endangered or threatened vertebrate species live in the park.
My wife and I travelled to Park Noel Kempff in April 2007. We had a great time. It was the highlight of our Bolivia tour. With a chartered airplane we first flew over pristine ranforest and the big plateau Caparu before we landed at the airstrip at Flor de Oro. We spent 3 days visiting the beautiful waterfalls Arco Iris and Ahlfeld. We saw lots of wildlife like tapirs, macaws, caimans, river dolphins, boas, different species of monkeys, toucans etc etc. We also took a dive in christal clear water.
The service of the staff is very good and the food is the best!
I strongly recommend to visit this place. You wont be disappointed.
I took a vacation trip with my sister to this, pretty much unheard place, only to find a place that exceeds any expectations. An excelent management of this park probably give us the option to see the forest almost untouched, or destroyed, by men. Only some indigenous tribes, park rangers and the administrative staff live inside the park. You can get there only by plane from the city of santa Cruz, cabins for visitors are very confortable, really good food, for being on the middle of a tropical forest, and voila, everything is just beatiful, from the very dawn, you 'll see the birds, or take a boat on the river trying to see these craetures, pink dolphins swimming in the deep and slow flowing rivers, wildlife blooming everywhere, going to these magnificent waterfalls. I feel it's that kind of experiences you have only once in a lifetime.
Go and check by yourself, it is worth.
