Tambopata Clay Lick & Macaws Tour, Peru - 3 Days

Tambopata Clay Lick & Macaws Tour, Peru

Peru Macaws and Parrots Tambopata Tour

This leisurely paced 3-day Tambopata Clay Lick & Macaws Tour is available on request and based at the Explorer's Inn in southern Peru. The focus of the trip is on the wide range of  parrots, parakeets and macaws that inhabit Tambopata National Park and daily visit its famous clay lick.

The birds congregate at the Explorer’s Inn Clay Lick to ingest the red clay which cleanses their guts and also supplements their diet with minerals. The Tambopata clay lick is the ideal place to watch interesting animal activity in a way that does not disturb their natural behaviour.

But that is not all you will enjoy on this specialist Tambopata macaw tour. You will also witness the fascinating hunting techniques of the White Spectacled Cayman on the Tambopata River. And gain spectacular views of the Amazon rainforest from the vantage point of our canopy tower, 46m above the forest floor.

Another exciting activity on this Tambopata clay lick trip will be the night walk through the Amazon jungle to learn how the Peruvian night fauna lives in this complex environment.

Your stay will be at the comfortable Explorer's Inn, one of the oldest and most historic lodges in Peru, that blends hospitality with scientific research into rainforest flora and fauna, with an emphasis on conservation.

Tambopata Clay Lick & Macaws Tour highlights include:

  • A visit to the Explorer’s Inn Clay Lick to spot Red and Green Macaws, Scarlet Macaws, Chestnut-fronted Macaws, Orange-cheeked Parrots, Blue-headed Parrots, White-bellied Parrots, among others
  • Night excursion to find White Caymans on the Tambopata River banks
  • Walks through pristine Amazon rainforest to see the area's unique flora and fauna and learn about their value
