Tambopata Jungle Tours 5D/4N – Macaw Bank jungle lodge



Posada Amazonas Guiding Service Our guides are tourism professionals, or community members. Unless noted otherwise, our guides speak English.
We assign guides at 10:1 ratio in Posada Amazonas. This means groups smaller than 10 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. Boxed Lunch Transfer Boat – Tambopata River Port to Posada Amazonas The forty-five-minute boat ride from the Tambopata Port to Posada Amazonas will take us into the Community´s Primary Forest Private Reserve. Orientation Upon arrival, the lodge manager will welcome you and brief you with important navigation and security tips. Canopy Tower A twenty minute walk from Posada Amazonas leads to the 30-meter scaffolding canopy tower.
A bannistered staircase running through the middle provides safe access to the platforms above. From atop you obtain spectacular views of the vast expanses of standing forest cut by the Tambopata River winding through the middle.
Now and then toucans, parrots or macaws are seen flying against the horizon, or mixed species canopy flocks land in the treetop next to you. Dinner Ecotourism Lecture A daily presentation on the Infierno ecotourism project is available every night from a staff member.
Classic at Posada Amazonas – Overnight


Breakfast Tres Chimbadas Oxbow Lake Tres Chimbadas is thirty minutes by boat and forty five minutes hiking from Posada Amazonas.
Once there you will paddle around the lake in a catamaran, searching for the resident family of nine giant river otters (seen by 60% of our lake visitors) and other lakeside wildlife such as caiman, hoatzin and horned screamers.
Otters are most active from dawn to eight or nine AM. Lunch Ethnobotanical Tour A twenty minute boat drive downriver leads you to a trail designed by the staff of the Centro Ñape.
The Centro Ñape is a communal organization that produces medicines out of forest plants and administers them to patients who choose their little clinic.
They have produced a trail which explains the different medicinal (and other) uses of selected plants.
Dinner 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.
Classic at Posada Amazonas – Overnight


Breakfast Parrot Clay Lick This clay lick is only a twenty-minute walk from Posada Amazonas.
From a blind located about twenty meters away, you will see dozens of parrots and parakeets descend on most clear mornings to ingest the clay on a river bank.
Species such as Mealy and Yellow-headed Amazon, Blue-headed Parrot and Dusky headed Parakeet descend at this clay lick.
The clay lick is active at dawn, during the late mornings and mid-afternoon.
Ceiba Trail Hike We leave from the lobby at Posada Amazonas and embark on a two-hour hike crowned by the largest tree in the vicinity: a giant ceiba tree.
During the hike, we will focus on the natural history of the rainforest and its principal taxonomic groups.
Lunch Farm Visit A thirty minute boat drive downriver takes us to the most complete farm in the community of Infierno.
The owner grows a diverse variety of popular and unknown Amazon crops.
In his garden, just about every plant and tree serves a purpose.
Dinner Classic at Posada Amazonas – Overnight


Breakfast Brazil Nut Trail and Camp A few minutes hikes from the lodge is a beautiful old growth patch of Brazil Nut forest that has been harvested for decades (if not centuries) where the precarious remains of a camp used two months a year by Brazil Nut gatherers can still be experienced.
We will be demonstrating the whole process of the rain forest’s only sustainably harvested product from collection through transportation to drying.
Lunch Overlook Walk This 2 km trail will bring us along the Tambopata River.
We will be able to clearly separate a Terra Firme Forest from a Secondary Forest after this walk, as the trail crosses both habitats.
Resting on the benches we can witness the Tambopata on its unhurried journey across the lowland rainforest.
