DAY 01

Reserva nacional del tambopata

ENCOUNTER WITH THE GUACAMAYOS

PROGRAM

NATIONAL RESERVE OF TAMBOPATA


Introduction:


Your flight to Puerto Maldonado will offer you a panoramic view of the winding Madre de Dios River and the lush canopy of jungle trees that characterizes the southern basin of the Amazon. Visit the Tambopata National Reserve and its impressive biodiversity of wildlife and plants. This protected area still has indigenous tribes that do not communicate with strangers. In the virgin jungle outside of Puerto Maldonado, your private cabin in the charming Eco-Spirit Lodge will be a comfortable refuge that also brings you closer to nature. Enjoy fresh local meals in the restaurant, including guided excursions to places like Collpa Chuncho, where you can see large concentrations of macaws and parrots. Travel by motorboat while watching the sunrise and try to see birds, alligators, capybaras and tapirs on the riverbank. Find unusual insects, incredibly large trees and maybe some monkeys along the shaded trails of the jungle. After your excursions, relax at Eco-Spirit Lodge with a cocktail at the bar while listening to the sounds of the wildlife that surrounds you.


Encuentro Guacamayo


  • Your adventure in the jungle begins when your official tourist guide Eco-Spirit Lodge receives you at the Puerto Maldonado airport. Your guide will guide you in all activities during the duration of your trip. Enjoy a little relief from the heat in our air-conditioned truck or truck. You'll travel a short way to the office for a brief 10-minute stop to drop off any extra luggage you do not need for a short trip in the jungle. We will stop to pick up your lunches in boxes, then we will go through fields and farms for 90 minutes until we reach the port community of Philadelphia. Then, enjoy a relaxing 20-minute boat ride on the Tambopata River. On the way, you can see local people working along the riverbank.

  • When you arrive at Eco-Spirit Lodge, your guide will take you to the main house, Casa del Curaca, for check-in. The manager will welcome you with a cold drink made with local fruits and mineral water. After check-in, you will be taken to your private cabin, which is named after a local indigenous tribe, where you can relax and unpack. All meals and drinks at the Eco-Spirit Lodge are made with fresh fruits and vegetables from the garden, as well as other local ingredients.

  • Introduction to the jungle: This afternoon, your guide will introduce you to the jungle. Enjoy a botanical walk through the jungle trails to discover ancient trees, monkeys and other wild animals. Learn to tour the area.

  • Night walk through the jungle:  Before dinner, your specialist jungle guide will guide you on a night walk through the trails of the jungle where you can experience the sounds of nature and try to detect nocturnal insects. Lanterns will be provided.

  • Return to the Casa del Curaca restaurant for a dinner that characterizes the local cuisine. From the bar, you may want to select some Peruvian beer, wine or an exotic cocktail made especially for you. Then return to your cabin and sleep with the music of the jungle around you.

DAY 02

Collpa de guacamayos y loros

Collpa Chuncho Macaw and Parrot Clay Lick, Tambopata National Reserve


(This location offers excellent opportunities for photography.)


  • Wake up early and join your guide for a 45-minute boat ride to the Macaw and Parrot Lick. Watch the sunrise on the Tambopata River from your boat. After a quick check-in at the ranger station, try to detect alligators and birds, as well as mammals such as tapirs, capybaras and monkeys along the riverbank. In the clay lick, you will observe a great concentration of several species of macaws, parrots and parakeets. You can see some toucans and other bird species. Enjoy your breakfast in a box surrounded by nature.

  • Walk in the jungle: Then, join your specialist jungle guide for a walk through the primary and secondary forest. Under the canopy of the treetops, there are trees such as Ceiba, iron, garlic and many other tree species. These are some of the largest trees found in the Amazon. Look for large termite nests and small parades of armed ants and leaf cutter ants. Your guide will also discuss the medicinal plants of the region and the critical importance of the jungle within the ecosystem. NOTE: Depending on the time of your departure flight or bus schedule, the itinerary and time of departure may change. The details will be discussed with you before booking the tour.
