Tambopata Macaw Clay Lick – Chuncho Macaw Clay Lick

Tambopata Macaw Clay Lick – Chuncho Macaw Clay Lick

Tambopata Macaw Clay Lick is one of our signature tours. We have designed this to offer you an extensive insight into the life and traditions in the Peruvian Amazon Rainforest. To make this a hassle free trip, we will be transferring you from Puerto Maldonado airport or bus terminal.

Tambopata National Reserve is home to several distinct species of plants, animals and birds. You will be spotting most of them on this six day tour with our local naturalist tour guide. There are over 650 varieties of birds and 1500 species of butterflies in Tambopata National park.

There are over eight species of red and green, blue and yellow Macaws including Scarlet Macaws in Tambopata. The Macaws gathering in Chuncho is an unmissable sight.

Nestled on the Tambopata river bank, Chuncho is the world’s largest Macaw Clay Lick. Different Macaws and Parrots gather to eat the clay from the cliff. The clay has a distinct mineral that helps these birds to flush toxins from their bodies.

Tambopata is also home to the Ese Eja indigenous groups. Ese Eja is a term in Quechua for people. They are untouched by modernity and maintain their age-old traditions and customs. Infierno, Palma Real and Sonene are three communities of Ese Eja in Tambopata.

People here rely on farming and hunting to win their daily bread. Now few tour companies like ours have started giving them employment opportunities. All our support crew in Tambopata are from the Ese Eja community.

Our tour guides are also locals from the region. They are born and raised in the region and have extensive knowledge about the life of flora and fauna here.

Join us in groups, as couples or as a solo traveler to experience the best of the Amazon Rainforest. This is our exclusive six day tour with an English speaking local tour guide.
