Rainforest Nature Walk in Soberania National Park, and Pipeline Road
The visit to Soberania National Park includes a professional certified nature guide that will help you to spot wildlife, and provide you with information about the natural history of the park and trails. There will also be an interpretative explanation about the different interactions that take place in the rainforest ecosystem.
Soberania National Park offers an incredible glance at the local biodiversity of flora and fauna, being a refuge of almost 50% of all the bird and mammal species found in Panama; including toucans, motmots and trogons; an array of mammals such as monkeys, agoutis, and two and three-toed sloths; unique insects, amphibians, trees, and plants.
In order to increase the possibilities of seeing wildlife on the walk, your guide will pick you up early. On your way to the park, you will also have the opportunity to stop briefly at a market. At the park, we will make a quick stop to view bird species that inhabit a local pond. Then it’s jungle time! The walk will take roughly 3.5 hours along the Pipeline road, with a break along the way.
