Puerto Maldonado - Jungle Adventure (4 Days / 3 Nights)

Tambopata Jaguar

Tambopata is a river, a national reserve and a province in Madre de Dios state, southeastern Peru.It harbors some of the most biodiverse rainforest in the country,huge protected areas, and is home to several thousand people. Remote, wild, but still easily accessible, this contrasting combination has helped it to become one of the global hotspots for ecotourism.

 

Itinerary

Day 1:

Reception at the airport and transfer to the dock located in the native community of Infierno from where we board our canoe and start a one-and-a-half hour journey to the Explorer's Inn. During the trip we have a lunch on board and may see caimans, turtles and capybaras, among other animals. We are received at the Inn with a welcome drink. After resting, we take a short night-hike to see nocturnal rainforest animals. Back at the lodge we have dinner with our guide and some of the Resident Naturalists who are available to answer questions or brief us about the Amazon rainforest and the Tambopata National Reserve.

Day 2:

We rise early and walk with our guide approximately three-and-a-half miles to see the giant otters at Cocococha oxbow lake. On the way we observe plants, insects, butterflies, birds, monkeys and, if we are lucky, possibly larger mammals. At the lake we occupy a strategic hiding place and wait for the otters. Afterwards we take a short canoe ride around the lake watching the wildlife on the shoreline. Back at the lodge we have a late lunch and in the afternoon you can either rest or visit our new 42 meters high canopy tower. At dusk we take a brief walk to Sunset Point to watch night fall in the Amazon. We then board the canoes again to watch caimans with torches.

Day 3:

Another early start to visit a small clay lick about 10 minutes from the lodge by boat. Here macaws and other parrot species gather every morning to feed from the mineral rich soil, an unforgettable spectacle. We return to the lodge on foot, taking in the flora and fauna of the rainforest. After breakfast we visit the chacra (small family farm) of a local family where we see how they sustainably grow crops in the rainforest and use medicinal plants. Back at the lodge we have a late lunch and have the rest of the afternoon free.

Day 4:

We again wake early to have breakfast and board the canoe to return to Puerto Maldonado. On the way we watch the day dawn over the Tambopata River. Once in Puerto Maldonado we are transferred to the airport to take our return flight.
