Tambopata Candamo jungle
(4 days, 3 nights)
Flight to Puerto Maldonado. Reception and transfer from the airport to the Lodge. Short journey by road and then transfer to the Tambopata river. Travel by motor boat along the river. Snack during the trip.
During the trip we may see caiman, turtles and waterfowl, etc. After approx. 3 hours we will arrive at the lodge where we will be received with a welcome drink followed by lunch. We are now deep inside pristine rainforest and surrounded by its wonderful sounds. After a short rest we will have a short hike to enjoy a jungle sunset at Sunset Point. After returning we will have dinner, at which the Resident Naturalists (RNs) will be available
to answer questions and brief us on the Amazon rainforest.
After an early breakfast, and guided by one of our RNs, we will start a 3½ mile hike to Cocococha oxbow lake. On the way we will observe exotic plants and insects, colourful butterflies and birds, monkeys and, with luck, perhaps even some of the larger mammals. At the lake, canoes will be available for a ride around, whilst watching the wildlife on the shoreline, where we shall see Hoatzin (ancient birds) and hopefully a family of giant otters. Return to the lodge for a late lunch.
Afternoon free for relaxing or independent activities. Dinner. In the evening, we will board the canoe for a short night ride to spot caiman with flashlights on the river banks and possibly capybary, the world's largest rodent.
After breakfast, a choice of treks or canoe rides which can be coordinated with the local guides. From specific birdwatching trips to deeper river excursions; or perhaps just resting in the comfortable environs of the lodge.
After breakfast, boarding of the canoe to return to Pto. Maldonado. Transfer to the airport for the return flight back to Cuzco or Lima.
(Optional 2-day extension to the Colpa de Chuncho, the largest claylick in the world - please ask for details).
