Our boat will be waiting for us to take us 25 minutes up the Tambopata river to get to our Lodge near to Chuncho Clay Lick, we will have good chances to spot capybaras and many shorebirds along the riverbank, getting to the lodge we will get a welcome drink and the manager will explain us all we need to know about our lodge and its around. After lunch, we will go for an introductory walk in first in a secondary growth forest and then in a primary forest full of huge trees and lianas and vines, at the same time, we will talk about the most important economic activities in this region. Chances to spot some Brown capuchin monkeys and squirrel monkeys will be always possible. When it is getting dark we will come back to our lodge to get our torch and go to our boat and we will do one of the most exciting activities… it will be the Cayman spotting, we will go to look for White and black Caymans along the river bank with a big spotlight, we might see more capybaras and we always have good chances to spot and ocelot or a jaguar by the river too.

We will have all the sunrise just for us in the boat, and we will have really good chances to spot shorebirds, capybaras, White caimans, and why not to mention … A jaguar or an anaconda, I like to say it, we have a 20 % of probabilities to see one of these guys by the river bank.

Getting to our destination, we will get a show at the Chuncho Clay Lick, parrots and macaws Green, red, blue and yellow birds all around us, flying and making loud noises, it will be spectacular this behavior of this birds. We will explain to you the reason why every day the

At the end of this activity, in our way downriver to the lodge we will make a short stop in the checkpoint to learn more about the small museum that there is here, after this, we will continue toward our lodge to get unforgettable swimming in the stream or maybe in the Tambopata River.

We will get our lunch and then we will go for a walk to know more about the most important things about the medicinal plants, the quinine “good for the malaria”, the cats claw, the dragons blood, and the AYAHUASCA “the master plant for the shamans”   are only a few plants that we will find during this interesting walk just in the back of our lodge, in the real jungle.

We will go back to our lodge and then at night before dinner or after dinner we will have a short night walk, the sounds at night, the insects, spider, tarantulas, frogs and maybe snakes will make this night hike something difficult to forget.

    From beginning to end this tour is amazing. Luis was super helpful from my first email until we got to Tambopata, He organized our tour to exactly what we wanted to see and everything was set up and ready to go when we arrived. Our guide, Ricardo was the man. He knew about every single animal we saw and was amazing at spotting them. I don't think we'd have seen 1/4 of what we did if it hadn't been for his keen eye. You can tell he loves wildlife and the area. It was by far the best part of our trip to Peru

    I highly ecommend this tour operator! Truly experienced guides and experts finding elusive animals, knowing every bird by song, flight pattern or sight and by finding you the big stuff, Cayman, Deer, Giant Otters, Monkeys and Capybaras to name but a few. The hikes were fun. The lodging was perfect and the food varied and delicious. I wish that I could have gone on a longer trip.
