Day 1 Puerto Maldonado/Tambopata
Arrive at the Puerto Maldonado airport, meet the naturalist guide and set off on the journey to the jungle lodge. Spot wildlife en route. Before dinner, head out for a night walk around the lodge.

After a brief stop in town to store large luggage, drive to the pier and travel by covered motorized boat to the jungle lodge. En route, spot bird species typical of the local river and forest edge. The Tambopata Rainforest area holds the world record for the most bird sightings in one area. Local community members make up the majority of lodge staff, including multilingual naturalist guides. Take the opportunity to learn about the area’s rich flora and fauna and locals' extensive use of medicinal plants and other forest plant resources through traditional techniques for building, fishing, and hunting. Enjoy a welcome drink and orientation. Before dinner, head out for a night walk around the lodge grounds. (L, D)

Day 2 Tambopata
Enjoy guided excursions led by expert naturalists to spot wildlife at nearby oxbow lakes and along the jungle trails. Relax in a hammock, enjoy the local swimming hole, or visit a nearby plantation. After dinner, go on a caiman-spotting cruise.

Head out early to catch the jungle at its wildest (and coolest). Walk slowly through the forest searching for wildlife before heading out on an oxbow lake by canoe. Search for anaconda, the elusive giant river otter or black caiman. Even if you don't spot these shy creatures, there's plenty of other birds, interesting plants. and other animals about. (B, L, D)

Day 3 Tambopata
Take a boat excursion to a spectacular hidden lake. There's a chance to spot the elusive black caiman and giant otters. Return for lunch and another free afternoon for relaxing. (B, L, D)

Day 4 Tambopata/Puerto Maldonado
After breakfast, return by canoe to Puerto Maldonado and transfer to the airport for departure.

Start early for the canoe trip back to Puerto Maldonado. Search for early morning wildlife. Howler monkeys are frequently heard, as they stake out their territories. Arrive back to the port and journey by van to the lodge office to collect luggage before heading to the airport. (B)
