A recommended program with only one night in the jungle and visit the Tambopata National Reserve
We will start at 10:00 in the morning from our Paradise Amazon office or we will pick you up at your Hotel, we will have a 2-hour drive, the first hour on our interoceanic highway and then on a road with little traffic to reach the banks of the Tambopata river where Our boat and motorist will be waiting for us to continue along the river for approximately 30 minutes, upstream until we reach our Lodge “TAMBOPATA INN” we will have chances to see many riverside birds, capybaras, white caimans, arriving at our Lodge we will have a Welcome refreshment and a brief description of all our services during your stay with us. We will provide you with your respective room and then you can walk for a better recognition of the place. After lunch, a brief break to continue with a walk in a primary forest full of thousand-year-old trees with lots of information about the most important economic activities in our department such as “agriculture, mining, logging, the chestnut collection activity or Brazil nut and ecotourism” at the same time we will have chances to look for monkeys and other mammals in their natural habitat.
We will return at sunset to take our flashlights and go to observe alligators, capybaras and perhaps some feline that is near the river at night wanting to hunt something.
After our dinner, if you still have energy, we can take a short night walk in search of insects, arachnids, tarantulas and maybe some snake, armadillo, night monkey or tapir near the Lodge.
We will get up very early and after a delicious coffee, we will continue upstream at 5:00 am for about an hour, with all the sunrise just for us in our boat, the landscape is spectacular and why not say it… we have 20% of chances to see a jaguar or perhaps an anaconda on the shores of our Tambopata National Reserve.
Arriving at our destination, we will find a whole show of parrots and macaws and we will learn closely the reasons why these birds, and many other mammals, need the clay of this wall in their daily diet throughout the year. It is a spectacular show that entertains us from 6:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. approx. Our delicious breakfast will be in front of the Collpa Chuncho.
Having already finished our activity here, we will have a short visit to the checkpoint to learn more in a small museum that is located in this place. We will continue to our Lodge to taste our lunch and after a break we can visit the waterfall of the Mississippi ravine to take a refreshing bath and then learn about some products that are grown in this rich land of Madre de Dios.
When the afternoon begins to dawn, we will take our canoe to go 20 minutes down the river and then the truck for two hours back to Puerto Maldonado.
