This 3-day tour will allow experiencing the best from the Amazon Wildlife such as spotting the Giant River Otters on great lakes besides a big variety of flagship species like the Macaws or the White Caymans along with the professional assistance of your Jungle Guide in a pristine forest.
Guests are received at the airport and taken to the office, where you will be able to repack and leave in storage anything that you will not be needing on this part of your trip. We then continue on to the port in the native community of Infierno, from which we will embark on an hour and a half boat ride to Explorer’s Inn Tambopata Ecolodge.
During this journey guests will receive a boxed lunch and there will be an obligatory stop the the La Torre control point to register our entrance into the Tambopata National Reserve. Upon arrival guests will be greeted by the lodge manager, who will give useful recommendations and information to ensure an enjoyable stay.
After a rest, our naturalist guide will give an informative presentation about the distinct species of caiman that can be observed in the Tambopata National Reserve, in order to allow guests to learn more about this endangered species.
We again board our boat to start the nighttime search of caimans in the Tambopata River. Our naturalist guide uses a spotlight in order to locate them on the banks of the river, so that we can observe them from a respectable distance.
We wake early to visit the parrot claylick, which is a 10 minute boat ride from the lodge. A claylick is an exposed area of clay with higher concentrations of salts and other important minerals, where parrot species converge to eat. In our case this is a small wall close to the river, allowing observation of various species of parrots and parakeets which you can see eating the clay. We will then return to the lodge walking one of our trails, where if we are lucky, we may see other animals in their natural habitat.
We visit our 42 meter high tower in order to enjoy the spectacular views of the sunset and surroundings. We have the chance to see a variety of fauna species, including types of macaws, parrots, toucans and monkeys.
Your naturalist guide will take you on a night walk to see the jungle from another perspective. This is the time to see unique insects, amphibians, owls and perhaps other species if you are lucky.
We have an early breakfast and get ready for our departure from the lodge. The time of departure is programmed according to the flight times for guests finishing their tour on the same day. Guests are taken from the port to our Puerto Maldonado office, and then on to the airport.
