Get ready to walk through the pristine rainforest and navigate the unpolluted Tambopata river upstream, where you could observe interesting wildlife of the Neotropic, Capybaras grassing along the river shores, caymans basking, turtles sitting on anchored trees over the water surface, even jaguars ambushing their preys.
The highlights of these tours include a visit to the Chuncho clay lick which its world-famous known as collpa (the patch of the cliff that attracts hundreds of brightly colored macaws, parrots, and parakeets to gather clay) another spectacular activity is to explore the forest itself that holds an incredible number of monkeys and raptors
We will start in the morning time and pick you up from your hotel, we will have 1 hour by minivan. The first part of the journey will be by the highway, and the second part will be by dirt route until we get to the Tambopata River, near the limit to the reserve. Our boat will be waiting for us to take us 25 minutes up the Tambopata river to get to our Lodge near 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 to us all we need to know about our lodge and its around.
After lunch, we will go for an introductory walk 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 more than possible.
When it is getting dark we will come back to our lodge to get our torches and go to our boat and we will do one of the most exciting activities… it will be the Caiman spotting, we will go to look for White and Black Caimans 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.
