Destination of the Month
INKATERRA, MACHU PICCHU, PERU
INKATERRA MACHU PICCHU
Immerse in the spirit of Royal Inca retreat, at Inkaterra's boutique Machu Picchu Hotel- an Andean Garden of Eden where waterfalls and streams gently cascade through acres of orchids. Hummingbirds frolic in a private cloud forest paradise, while you experience authentic barefoot luxury hotel at the foot of Machu Picchu, within an idyllic enclave of whitewashed casitas. 



Travel at twilight to an ancient petroglyph, and absorb the timeless spirit of Machu Picchu. Or search for the Andean Cock of the Rock at the river observatory. Nature activities abound, but ideal itineraries might include an Andean eucalyptus sauna, followed by massage or a star-lit plunge pool dip. A Machu Picchu citadel visit is usually a must.

Inkaterra's Machu Picchu Pueblo Hotel is the idyllic setting to explore nature and experinece the natural wonders of Peru.

Product of the Month
Nikon MONARCH 7 Binoculars

Built to satisfy the incredible needs of today's serious outdoorsmen and women, this is an entirely new level of MONARCH that not only bestows the latest in optical innovation upon the passions of its owner, but whose dynamic handling and rugged performance leave zero doubt as to its long-standing All Terrain Binocular heritage. Monarch 7
The hallmark of the MONARCH 7 is its optical system-a seamless carrier of light that utilizes Nikon's premium ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass and proprietary 
lens and prism coatings. This heart of the MONARCH 7 not only pushes resolution and brightness to extreme levels, but also further enhances your viewing experience with an amazingly wide field of view, close-focus capability and comfortable eye relief.

"This is absolutely the best value for money binocular on the market today."

James Currie, host of Nikon's Birding Adventures TV.

NIKON'S BATV - YOUR TICKET TO BIRDING THE WORLD!
Dear James Currie,

Seasons Greetings to all our wonderful Nikon's BATV fans. Its been a busy year. And we look forward to an even busier year next year as we enter Season 5. 

We have just returned from a wonderful trip to Peru, hosted by the Inkaterra family of hotels and also by PromPeru. We covered the inaugural 6-day Birding Rally Challenge, the first birding rally of its kind to take place in this bird-rich country.

PERU - ITS NOT JUST FOR THE BIRDS!
Machu Picchu
Machu Picchu, Peru.

Late November saw the kick-off of the inaugural Peru Birding Rally Challenge, the ground-breaking 6-day rally where teams from around the world compete to see the most species of birds.

The rally was a resounding success with nearly 500 species of birds recorded by the winning team, The LSU Tigrisomas from the USA. The Forest Falcons from the UK came in second place, a mere three birds behind the winning team. You can watch the full episode on the rally on the Pursuit Channel in early January 2013.

The second Peruvian Episode will feature the birds and wildlife surrounding our host hotels, Inkaterra's Reserva Amazonica and Machu Picchu Pueblo Hotel. We were very fortunate to come across some of Peru's most desirable mammals like Giant River Otters and Spectacled Bears, along with a staggering diversity of avian life from Andean Cock-of-the-rocks to Sunbitterns, Curl-crested Aracaris and Band-tailed Manakins.

For a sneak preview of some of our footage, please view the below video.
