Tambopata Tours | Tambopata Research Center 4D/3N

Puerto Maldonado Tours 4D/3N – Macaw Bank jungle Experience

Itinerary

DAY 1

Arrival & Reception by Guide
Our guides are tourism professionals or community members. Unless noted otherwise, our guides speak English.
We assign guides at 6:1 ratio in Tambopata Research Center.
This means smaller groups than 6 people will be merged with other groups under one guide.
If you would like a private guide or a guide in a language other than English please let us know.
Transfer Airport to Puerto Maldonado Headquarters.
Upon arrival from Lima or Cusco, we will welcome you at the airport and drive you ten minutes to our Puerto Maldonado headquarters.
While enjoying your first taste of the forest in our gardens we will ask you to pack only the necessary gear for your next few days, and leave the rest at our safe deposit.
This helps us keep the boats and cargo light.
Transfer Pto Maldonado Headquarters to Tambopata River Port
Skirting Puerto Maldonado, we drive 20 kilometers to the Tambopata River Port, entering the Native community of Infierno.
The port is a communal business.
Transfer Boat – Tambopata River Port to Refugio Amazonas
The two and a half hour boat ride from the Tambopata Port to Refugio Amazonas will take us past the Community of Infierno and the Tambopata National Reserve´s checkpoint and into the buffer zone of this 1.3 million hectare conservation unit.
Orientation
Upon arrival, the lodge manager will welcome you and brief you with important navigation and security tips.
Night walk
You will have the option of hiking out at night when most of the mammals are active but difficult to see. Easier to find are frogs with shapes and sounds as bizarre as their natural histories.
Refugio Amazonas – Overnight Meals: Boxed lunch & Dinner

DAY 2

Canopy Tower A thirty minute walk from Refugio Amazonas leads to the 25-meter scaffolding canopy tower.
A bannistered staircase running through the middle provides safe access to the platforms above.
The tower has been built upon high ground, therefore increasing your horizon of the continuous primary forest extending out towards the Tambopata National Reserve.
From here views of mixed species canopy flocks as well as toucans, macaws, and raptors are likely.
Transfer Boat – Refugio Amazonas to TRC Four and half hours by boat from Refugio Amazonas, in the pristine heart of the reserve, lies the Tambopata Research Center.
One and half hours into our boat journey, as we cross the confluence with the Malinowski River, we will leave the final traces of human habitation behind.
Within the 700,000 hectares uninhabited nucleus of the reserve, sightings of capybara, caiman, geese, macaws and other large species will become more frequent.
Chuncho Clay Lick Two hours from Refugio Amazonas, deep in the Tambopata National Reserve we will stop at the Chuncho clay lick.
After a brief walk (~5 minutes) we will have the chance to see dozens of large macaws feeding on the special sodium-rich clays of the riverbank.
The Chuncho clay lick probably attracts more large macaws than any other clay lick in the world and the sight of dozens of macaws taking flight is truly unforgettable.
The details of our stopover will depend on the weather and the amount of macaw activity, as the birds don’t visit the clay lick when it is raining.
Orientation Upon arrival, the lodge manager will welcome you and brief you with important navigation and security tips. Overlook Trail A three to five-kilometer hike will lead us to overlooks commanding magnificent views of the Tambopata winding its way into the lowlands.
The forest on this trail, regenerating on an old bamboo forest, is good for Howler Monkey and Dusky Titi Monkey.
Macaw Project Lectures After dinner scientists will provide an in-depth look at the biology of macaws, their feeding habits, the theories for clay lick use, their breeding and feeding ecology, population fluctuations and the threats to their conservation.
Tambopata Research Center – Overnight Meals: Breakfast, Lunch Dinner

DAY 3

Macaw Clay Lick On most clear mornings of the year dozens of large macaws and hundreds of parrots congregate on this large river bank in a raucous and colorful spectacle which inspired a National Geographic cover story.
Discretely located fifty meters from the cliff, we will observe Green-winged, Scarlet and Blue-and-gold Macaws and several species of smaller parrots descend to ingest clay.
Outings are at dawn when the lick is most active. Floodplain Trail This five-kilometer trail covers the prototypical rain forest with immense trees criss-crossed by creeks and ponds.
Amongst the figs, ceibas and shihuahuacos we will look for Squirrel, Brown Capuchin, and Spider Monkeys as well as peccaries. TRC is located within this habitat. Pond Platform Ten minutes upriver from the lodge is a tiny pond with a platform in the middle.
It is a great place to spot waterfowl such as Muscovy duck, sunbittern, and hoatzin along with the woodpeckers, oropendolas, flycatchers, and parakeets that call this pond their home.
Night walk You will have the option of hiking out at night when most of the mammals are active but rarely seen. Much easier to find are frogs with shapes and sounds as bizarre as their natural histories.
