4-day Tambopata Ecolodge Rainforest Journey Tour
Enjoy four days based at our Tambopata Ecolodge, including the chance to experience one night at a riverside camp on a journey upriver to the world’s largest known macaw and parrot clay lick. A fascinating boat ride will take us to our camp deep inside Tambopata National Reserve, where in addition to visiting the macaw clay lick, we will explore the forests in search of species of fauna including troops of monkeys. The itinerary includes all transport, accommodation, meals, and guided excursions.
Day 1: River journey to Tambopata Ecolodge
After arriving at the Ecolodge via a fascinating 68-kilometer journey (23 km by vehicle, 45 km by boat), you will be free to settle into your excellent accommodation before being invited to enter the forest for the first time in the company of one of our naturalist guides.
Day 2: Monkeys, birdlife and other fauna
Our first full day in the National Reserve will begin with a 4-6 hour boat ride even deeper into the forest to Colorado, the world’s largest known macaw clay lick, where, after exploring the forests in the afternoon in search of species of fauna including troops of monkeys, we will camp in expectation of the scenes awaiting us the next morning.
Day 3: A mass of birdlife
A macaw clay-lick in the first few hours after dawn is an incredible sight. As soon as the morning sun begins to shine on the sheer riverbank, hundreds of parrots and macaws belonging to ten or more species arrive and perch in nearby trees. They come in pairs or in flocks hundreds strong, depending on the species. Then, with a flapping of wings and ear-splitting squawks, they begin landing on the face of the cliff to consume small portions of clay, creating a unique spectacle of color and sound. Back at the Ecolodge, we will once again enjoy the comforts of our cabins, the restaurant and bar, as well as venturing onto the river at night in search of caimans.
Day 4: Early morning river journey
Our stay in the Amazonian forest ends today with an early morning boat ride to Puerto Maldonado. This is one of the best times to be on the river, as the wildlife begins to stir.
