Reserva Biologica Cordillera de Sama

The Reserva Biologica Cordillera de Sama is a wonderful combination the puna grasslands that characterize the Altiplano and deep valleys that drop into the Tarija valley.  This 108,000 hectare reserve was created in 1991 the non-goverenmental organization, PROMETA (Protection del Medio Ambiente Tarija). If you want to enter the reserve, you will need to contact their offices at Calle Alejandro del Carpio in Tarija, Tel: 663-3873. They are also responsible for handing the visitors centre on the shores of Laguna Tajzara, where you can stay overnight.  It comes equipped with a fully equipped kitchen, hot water and comfortable beds.  It is a great place to say as it makes early morning birding much easier.

It is internationally recognized as an important bird area.  One of the more spectacular places for bird watch are three brackish lakes on the eastern edge of the Altiplano—the largest of which is Laguna Tajzara.  These lakes are home to some spectacular wildlife, including all three species of Andean flamingo. However, there is a great variety of wildlife here—enough to keep any nature lover busy.<//font></><//>

To get to the reserve, take any bus going to Tupiza and Villazón.  Ask to be dropped at the village of Pasajes, about two hours outside of Tarija.  This will put you about two kilometers from Laguna Tajzara and the reserve’s  visitor center.
