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 breakfast and, at daybreak, board the canoe for a four-hour journey up the Tambopata River, deep into untouched Amazon rainforest with superb wildlife sighting possibilities. On the way we pass basalt rock formations, gold panning sites, wonderful sandy beaches where one can swim, arriving finally at the macaw clay lick, a 200-meter red soil cliff where, for reasons which scientists still do not fully understand, hundreds of macaws and other parrot species converge every morning and afternoon to feed on the mineral rich clay. Once installed at the campsite we have a box lunch. After a brief rest, depending on the season, we may swim in the river and/or go for a walk before having dinner at camp. Note: Depending on weather conditions, season and other factors, the activities on the second day may be replaced by the activities scheduled for the fourth day, with the excursion to the clay lick taking just one day.

Day 3:

Early in the morning we view the macaws at the clay lick and then return by canoe to the Inn, lunching on board. We have the afternoon free. After sunset, we board the canoe again to observe caimans using torches. Back at the lodge, we have dinner with our guides and some of the Resident Naturalists.

Day 4:

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 5:

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.
