The trip in detail

Today we’ll make the incredible journey – by van, plane, dugout canoe and walking a jungle trail (1.5km/.75 of a mile) – to virgin 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 caimanes (freshwater crocodiles) from a boat on a jungle waterway!

Meals: Lunch and dinner included

Accommodation: Remote jungle lodge near Lake Sandoval

Sunrise is a great time for spotting monkeys, birds and giant river otters, so we'll greet the dawn with them (or of course you can sleep in if you'd prefer to!). Then we'll paddle kayaks on a safe, calm section of the Madre de Dios River - a great, fun way to get some exercise and cool off from the jungle heat!

Later we'll paddle on an oxbow lake, spotting troops of up to 200 monkeys on the lakeshore and flocks of red-bellied macaws in the flooded palm forest.

Meals: All meals included

Accommodation: Remote jungle lodge near Lake Sandoval

Today we'll hike through the jungle to visit a woodlick where big, clever, colourful guacamayo parrots congregate in search of nutrients they can't get anywhere else. Along the way there's a good chance we'll spot sloths and monkeys going about their morning business.

This afternoon we'll taste jungle living firsthand, when we go fishing for piranha! Pan-fried piranha is delicious, and frying up and eating your own carnivorous catch as the sun sets over the Amazon Jungle is a dinner to remember.

Tonight's optional night hike gives you a last opportunity to spot tapirs, caimanes, night monkeys and tarantulas.

Meals: All meals included

Accommodation: Remote jungle lodge near Lake Sandoval

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’re here to help!

Meals: Breakfast included

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!
