Tambopata (Puerto Maldonado) 5 Days

Tambopata (Puerto Maldonado) 5 Days

Seeing some of the spectacular and exotic animals that live in the rainforest is one of the main goals of every eco travel trip to the Amazon. The amazing biodiversity in the Peruvian jungle is also its principal claim to fame and folks on family green travel vacations come to the rainforest with high hopes of experiencing troops of Squirrel Monkeys running and jumping through the trees, of seeing unbelievable looking toucans as they call from the treetops, or of glimpsing a jaguar in the depths of the rainforest.


Day 1: Welcome To The Jungle

Stop At: Tambopata National Reserve, Tambopata National Reserve, Madre de Dios Region
We look forward to greeting you at Puerto Maldonado Airport and escorting you to our office. Should you be traveling with large suitcases, you are welcome to store them at our office for your convenience.

Our Amazon adventure commences with a journey of approximately one and a half hours by road to Philadelphia port. Upon arrival, we will embark on a motorized boat to our lodge. In the afternoon, we begin our exploration of the jungle with an introductory walk, offering us the opportunity to marvel at the Amazon's rich biodiversity. As evening falls, our exploration continues with a nocturnal adventure along the jungle trails, in search of nighttime wildlife including insects, birds, snakes, mammals, frogs, and more.
Duration: 10 hours

Stop At: Chuncho Macaw Clay Lick, Tambopata National Reserve 17500 Peru
We rise early for a journey to the Chuncho macaw clay lick, a 30-minute upriver excursion by motorized boat. This trip offers an exceptional chance to observe a variety of wildlife, including numerous bird species, reptiles, mammals, and the capybara, the world's largest rodent. With a bit of luck, we may even spot a jaguar (Panthera Onca). Upon reaching the Chuncho macaw clay lick, we'll find a perfect spot to enjoy breakfast while witnessing a spectacular natural display: a large congregation of macaws, parrots, and parakeets. With favorable weather, we'll be treated to the sight of hundreds of these magnificent birds in their vibrant activity. Following our visit, we'll return to our lodge. Later, we'll partake in an artisanal balsa rafting activity on the river.

In the afternoon, we'll visit a 47-meter-high observation tower, offering panoramic views of the horizon enveloped by an endless canopy of treetops. An optional activity is available at night for those interested.

Stop At: Lago Sandoval, Tambopata National Reserve Peru
After breakfast, we embark on a 45-minute hike into the jungle to visit the mammal clay lick. Active throughout the year, this site attracts a variety of mammals such as tapirs, peccaries, deer, and howler monkeys, all drawn by the essential minerals provided by the clay, integral to their diets. While the likelihood of spotting these creatures stands at around 30%, the journey itself is rewarding. We'll return to the lodge for lunch.

Our journey then takes us back to Puerto Maldonado city. Upon arrival at our office, we continue our adventure towards Sandoval Lake. We proceed to the port, where we board a motorized boat on the Madre de Dios River for approximately 30 minutes. A pleasant 3 km (2 miles) walk of about 45 minutes awaits us, during which we may encounter a diverse array of birds, mammals, reptiles, and amphibians. Upon reaching the shores, we will embark on a rowing canoe journey through the forest, navigating past water palm trees.

Day 5: Farewell

Stop At: Puerto maldonAdo, 10260, Peru
We continue our visit, this time we venture on a suspension bridge with a height of 45 meters from where we see the impressive biodiversity of the Amazon. On our way back we visit the native family, this is located on the banks of the Madre de Dios river, where we are going to share a little of their customs, their fabrics, paintings, crafts and be able to interact with them to get to know them a little more.
