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.

Day 2 Tambopata
Enjoy guided excursions led by expert naturalists to spot wildlife at nearby oxbow lakes and along jungle trails. Head upriver for an unforgettable camping experience.
After a morning excursion, return to the lodge for an early lunch and to pack an overnight bag for camping. Take a canoe upriver to the National Reserve and the area of Collpa de Guacamayos, the bird and mammal clay licks, in the hope of spotting dozens of colourful macaws and peccaries feeding. A team of naturalists, a boat crew, and chefs will set up camp. Go for a hike around the area and opt for a refreshing dip in the cool river. Feast on a delicious meal by candlelight before turning in early for a pre-dawn start. (B, L, D)
Day 3 Tambopata
Rise early to get in place at the clay lick before the birds arrive. Witness the sights and sounds of the macaws and parrots feeding on the minerals and salts of the clay. Head back to the lodge after breakfast for a free afternoon. Spot caimans on the shore after dinner.
After what is sure to be a thrilling experience spotting the birds on the clay lick, head back to the campsite for another delicious breakfast. Pack up camp, head back down river, and arrive back to the lodge before lunch. The afternoon is free with options to sit on hammocks, take a dip in the cool swimming hole, or spend time at a nearby working plantation. In the evening, head out looking for caiman (alligators) by boat before dinner. (B, L, D)
