Your guide will be
waiting at the airport and / or bus terminal and take you to our office located about 5 minutes away from the city of Puerto Maldonado. Here we will record and do some last minute shopping for
things we could have forgotten such as batteries or poncho. Then we drive to the pier from where we take our motorboat to
travel 4 hours, lunch on board.
We travel for 3 rivers Madre de Dios, stones and Pariamanu, this river is one of the most beautiful rivers where you can see the forest on both sides of the boat, we can see during our trip,
native families, logging activities
and mining, then in the evening we arrive to our camp where we will camp for the night, then to accommodate our tents, take the boat to see alligators that become visible in the dark with the
help of our flashlights, then spend the night in our comfortable camp.
We will leave very early before breakfast to be able to see the first show, the arrival of parrots and parakeets, these usually arrive earlier than the macaws, after seeing these little parrots and seeing the macaws arrive, we will have our breakfast observed the arrival of the macaws that begin to arrive in pairs and are posing in the trees near the clay lick, then when there is already a fairly large group of around 100 to 200 macaws they will go down to eat the clay a multicolored show of flights and screams this is a show you will never forget.
The Pariamanu clay lick is an approximately ten meter high bank of a lateral arm of the Pariamanu River, where various species of parrots and macaws gather in a magical display. The most famous visitor is the red and green macaw. These birds have to gather every morning to feed on the clay before flying in search of fruits and seeds in the jungle. This show lasts between one and three hours and follows a specific order. Small species such as parakeets and parrotlets arrive first, later parrots appear to be eventually followed by significantly larger macaws bringing this exceptional explosion of color and sound to a dignified end. Back to our camp we will have lunch, after lunch, return to Puerto Maldonado, from there to travel along the Madre de Dios river, in a trip of approximately 15 minutes, then we will arrive at our next lodge "Amazon Lodge Tambopata" where we We will accommodate in our comfortable rooms, then we will do a night walk to see species that are only visible at night in the Amazon, return to the lodge for dinner, we will spend the night in our comfortable lodge.
After breakfast we will travel a motorized boat for 15 minutes along the Madre de Dios River, until we reach the shores of Lake Sandoval. From there we will enter the National Reserve (TAMBOPATA CANDAMO) in a walk of approximately one hour and we will arrive at the Lodge where we will settle in our comfortable rooms very close to Lake Sandoval. The hostel has private bathrooms and is located within the Tambopata National Reserve which makes it different from other hostels where we guarantee that you will see more flora and fauna and be in contact with nature. After settling down we will visit Lake Sandoval taking a rowing canoe along the lake, where it is possible to see the giant otter (river wolf), black caiman, shanshos, herons, cormorants, Kingfishers, etc. Return to the lodge for dinner, after dinner we will visit the lake again in the canoe with our flashlights or lamps to be able to see the alligators, they usually marry at night, where we will show and explain them and then we will return to our comfortable lodge to spend the night.
We will get up very early to leave the tambopata reserve and go to see the palm clay lick this is a special place within the reserve where different species of macaws and parrots gather to eat the dry palm trees that are rich in mineral salts such as: calcium , sodium, potassium, etc. Which is very important for the digestion of these birds. Then we will visit the island of the monkeys. And an indigenous family that lives nearby. Return to our lodge for lunch, after lunch we will do the adventure circuit, here we have 3 options but given the time we can only do 2 options. We have: kayak, suspension bridge and zip lines. This must choose with the guide only 2 activities. Return to the lodge to pack and back to Puerto Maldonado, and from there the bus terminal.
