Tambopata Macaw Clay Lick – Chuncho Macaw Clay Lick

Tambopata Macaw Clay Lick – Chuncho Macaw Clay Lick

Tambopata Macaw Clay Lick is one of our exclusive tours. We have designed this to offer you a broad insight into life and traditions in the Peruvian Amazon jungle. To make this a hassle-free journey, we will transfer you from Puerto Maldonado airport or bus terminal.

The Tambopata National Reserve is home to various distinct species of plants, animals, and birds. You will see most of them on this six-day tour with our local naturalist guide. There are over 650 varieties of birds and 1500 species of butterflies in the Tambopata National Park.

There are over eight species of red and green, blue and yellow macaws, including scarlet macaws in Tambopata. The gathering of macaws at Chuncho is a must-see spectacle.

Located on the banks of the Tambopata River, 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 distinctive mineral that helps these birds to detoxify their bodies.

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

The people here rely on agriculture and hunting for their daily bread. Now, a few tourism companies like ours have started to provide them with employment opportunities. Our entire support team in Tambopata is from the Ese Eja community.

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

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