The trip in detail

Today we’ll make the incredible journey – by van, plane, and dugout canoe – to pristine Amazon rainforest outside Puerto Maldonado. The irrepressible life all around you, with buzzing insects, flocks of birds and monkeys, and plants growing so fast you can almost see it happening, lets you know immediately that you’ve come to a very different world. The feeling that you’ve stepped into another dimension is enhanced when you find yourself spending the evening spotting caimans (freshwater crocodiles) from a boat on a jungle waterway!

Meals: Lunch and dinner included

Accommodation: Remote lodge in the Amazon jungle

We’ll spend the morning at Collpa Chuncho, the biggest macaw clay lick in the world! Up to 100 big, clever, guacamayos (macaws) congregate here each morning, eating clay which provides nutrients they can’t get anywhere else. Along the way there and back, there’s a good chance we’ll spot sloths and monkeys going about their morning business.

After lunch at the lodge, we’ll hike (about 1.5 hours) to an oxbow lake, where we’ll paddle around spotting dozens of different bird species in the shallows, troops of monkeys on the lakeshore, and flocks of red-bellied macaws in the flooded palm forest.

Both tonight and tomorrow, optional guided night hikes give you the opportunity to spot tapirs, night monkeys and tarantulas, and to sink into the incredible soundtrack of the jungle after dark.

Meals: All meals included

Accommodation: Remote lodge in the Amazon jungle

This morning we’ll journey by land and water to Tres Chimbadas Lake, where we’ll have as good a chance as anywhere in the world of spotting two elusive giants – our guests often spot both giant river otters and giant anacondas here! If you like, you can fish for piranha from the boat, and our cooks back at the lodge are happy to fry up your carnivorous catch for lunch!

This afternoon we’ll paddle kayaks on a safe, calm section of the Tambopata River – a great way to cool off from the jungle heat. Tonight's optional night hike gives you a last opportunity to spot tapirs, caimans, night monkeys and tarantulas.

Meals: All meals included

Accommodation: Remote lodge in the Amazon jungle

Today we’ll retrace our journey back to Puerto Maldonado airport. It’s a good idea to book your flight out for the afternoon, so as not to have to get up too early. If you would like assistance with your domestic flights or other onward arrangements, we’d be more than happy to help!

Accommodations

In the Amazon Jungle, we stay in airy bungalows at a remote jungle lodge. These are comfortable but not luxurious. You’ll have private bathroom for sure, and probably hot water... but you’ll need to live without wi-fi! We will do everything we can to accommodate rooming preferences, but please note double beds are not always available.


Oscar, Aspiring Adventures jungle guide, says:

I grew up swimming, climbing, playing and exploring in the jungle. And now I get to do this for a job! I love sharing my home with our guests - telling adults about the birds, animals and plants that make the Amazon so interesting, and having fun with kids!
