Tour Itinerary

Day 1 Puerto Maldonado/Tambopata (1L, 1D)

After a brief stop in town to store large luggage, drive to the pier and travel by covered motorized boat to the jungle lodge. En route, spot bird species typical of the local river and forest edge. The Tambopata Rainforest holds the world record for the most bird sightings in one area. Local community members make up the majority of lodge staff, including multilingual naturalist guides. Take the opportunity to learn about the area’s rich flora and fauna and locals' extensive use of medicinal plants and other forest resources through traditional techniques for building, fishing, and hunting. Enjoy a welcome drink and orientation. Before dinner, head out for a night walk around the lodge grounds. Additional Notes: Please note that you need to arrive into Puerto Maldonado by 13:00 at the latest in order to catch a transfer to the lodge. The lodge itself combines native architectural style and materials with low-impact, eco-friendly technology. Rooms are simple but comfortable, with mosquito netting for individual beds, flush toilets, showers (with solar-heated hot water), and candles for lighting (no electricity).

After a morning excursion, return to the lodge for an early lunch and to pack an overnight bag for camping. Take a canoe upriver to the National Reserve and the area of Collpa de Guacamayos, the bird and mammal clay licks, in the hopes of spotting dozens of colourful macaws and peccaries feeding. The team of naturalists, boat crew and chefs will set up camp while you hike around the area and opt for a refreshing dip in the cool river.
