A highly recommended program, a destination for nature lovers.
We will start the tours at 10:00 in the morning from our office or we will pick you up at your Hotel, we will have a 2-hour tour, 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 hostel “TAMBOPATA INN” on the way we will have chances to see many riverside birds, also capybaras, white caimans, arriving at At our Lodge we will have a welcome drink 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 rest to continue with a walk in a primary forest full of ancient trees and medicinal plants. You will have a lot of information about the most important economic activities of our department such as “agriculture, mining, logging, the chestnut or Brazil nut harvesting activity 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.
We will get up very early and after a delicious coffee, we will continue upstream at 5:00 a.m. 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 am to 11:00 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 hostel to taste our lunch and after a break we can visit the waterfall of the Quebrada el Gato to take a bath and kayak in the Tambopata river and then learn about some products that are grown in this rich land of Mother of God.
When the afternoon begins to dawn, we will take our canoe to go 30 minutes upriver to our Lodge to take our flashlights and go on a night walk in search of insects, arachnids, tarantulas and perhaps a snake, armadillo, night monkey or tapir near the Lodge.
We will wake up to the sounds of birds and probably howler monkeys, receive our breakfast and then we will go 30 minutes down the river to go for a morning of fishing in the Gato stream, there are always hungry piranhas waiting for a little meat that would be our fight, the walk to get to the fishing spots, big trees, some of the monkeys always around will be part of this activity. The stream is a very good place to swim too after we catch some piranhas, it’s an unforgettable experience. Briefly we will walk to explain a little about the local farm.
In the afternoon, we will walk to the Mammal Clay Lick, probably we will have better chances to find howler monkeys, deer, wild pigs, and some other mammals have fed in this place, at the same time, we will explain the different techniques about the forms of hunting that exist in this area. In the evening, after dinner, we can go to the river bank and make a little fire to talk about your time in the jungle, maybe answer some of the questions you may have, and if you want your guide to help you. We can tell you about local stories about the Tambopata jungle.
We will rest until we have breakfast and then take a 2-hour walk on a trail full of medicinal plants where we can talk about the different survival techniques with so many diseases transmitted by insects and the same climate. We will also be able to do some sport fishing in our stream where we will use local bait to be more successful in catching some Tambopata fish and then be able to taste it at our lunch, if they wish.
After our lunch, having already enjoyed our stay in Alto Tambopata, we will re-pack, we will take our boat 20 minutes down the river and then the van for our return to Puerto Maldonado, either your Hotel or the Airport or bus terminal if so requested. prefer.
