PERU AMAZON TOUR ITINERARY

DAY 1

Flight Lima – Puerto Maldonado (departing at 08:05 and arriving at 10:45).

Arrival & Reception by the tour guides who are biologists, tourism professionals, or community members. Transfer from the Airport to Puerto Maldonado Headquarters. While enjoying your first taste of the rainforest, the guides will ask you to pack the necessary gear for your next few days. You’ll leave the rest in a safe storage room. This helps keep the boats and cargo light.

Transfer from Puerto Maldonado Headquarters to the Tambopata River Port Skirting Puerto Maldonado (20 minutes). You’ll enter the Native Community of Infierno, as the port is a communal business.  Afterwards, take a 45-minute boat ride from the Tambopata Port to the Posada Amazonas lodge. The boat ride will take you into the Community’s Primary Forest Private Reserve.

Canopy Tower
After a brief orientation, prepare to experience amazing views of the rainforest from 30 meters above (approx. 100 ft.). A twenty minute walk from the lodge leads to the scaffolding canopy tower. A banister staircase running through the middle provides safe access to the platforms above. From atop you’ll enjoy spectacular views of the vast expanses of the forest cut by the Tambopata River winding through the middle. Now and then toucans, parrots or macaws are seen flying against the horizon. If you’re lucky, mixed species of canopy flocks will land in the treetop next to you.

Ecotourism Lecture
A daily presentation on the Infierno ecotourism project is available every night from a staff member.

Overnight at Posada Amazonas Lodge

DAY 2

Tres Chimbadas Oxbow Lake – Giant River Otter Watching
The Tres Chimbadas Lake is thirty minutes by boat and forty five minutes on foot from the lodge. Once you arrive, you will travel in a catamaran, and search for the resident family of nine giant river otters (seen by 60% of lake visitors) and other lakeside wildlife such as caimans, hoatzins and horned screamers. Otters are most active from dawn to 08:00 or 09:00.

Parrot Clay Lick
This clay lick is only a twenty minute walk from the lodge. From a blind located about twenty meters away, you will see dozens of parrots and parakeets descend on most clear mornings to ingest the clay on a river bank. Species such as the Mealy, Yellow-headed Amazon, Blue-headed Parrot and Dusky headed Parakeet descend on this clay lick. It is most active at dawn, during the late mornings and mid-afternoons.

Ethnobotanical Tour
A twenty-minute boat ride downriver leads to a trail designed by the staff of the Centro Ñape. The Centro Ñape is a communal organization that produces medicine from forest plants and administers them to patients. They have created a nature trail that explains the different medicinal (and other) uses of selected plants.

Night Walk
You will have the opportunity to go on a night walk, when most of the mammals are active but rarely seen. For example, it is much easier to find frogs with shapes and sounds as bizarre as their natural histories.
