Photo Diary: Bolivia

Perhaps most famous for the Salar de Uyuni, the world’s largest salt flat, Bolivia is a beautiful and dynamic country that offers wonderfully diverse landscapes that feel almost crafted just for photography. From the salt flat that mirrors the sky to large lakes that appear perfectly pink thanks to the thousands of flamingoes they home, we love visiting this landlocked South American country every year.

Salar de Uyuni, amid the Andes in southwest Bolivia, is the world’s largest salt flat. It’s the legacy of a prehistoric lake that went dry, leaving behind a desertlike, nearly 11,000-sq.-km. landscape of bright-white salt, rock formations and cacti-studded islands.

Wildlife is rare in this unique ecosystem, but it harbours many pink flamingos. It is in fact, a breeding ground for not one, but 3 different species.

Our tour to Bolivia departs 13 December 2019. You can view the full itinerary here.
