Additionally, this excursion presents an excellent opportunity to spot monkeys and other mammals thriving in their natural habitats.
As the sun begins to set, we will return to the lodge to retrieve our flashlights, preparing for an evening adventure. We will venture out to observe alligators, capybaras, and perhaps even catch a glimpse of a feline predator prowling near the riverside in search of prey.
Following a satisfying dinner, for those still energized and interested, we can embark on a short nocturnal hike. This excursion will provide the chance to discover insects, arachnids, tarantulas, and potentially encounter creatures such as snakes, armadillos, night monkeys, or even tapirs in close proximity to the lodge.
We will get up very early and after a delicious coffee, we will continue upstream at 4:30 am for about an hour, with all the sunrise just for us in our boat, the landscape is spectacular and why not say it… we have 20% of chances to see a jaguar or perhaps an anaconda on the shores of our Tambopata National Reserve.
Arriving at our destination, we will find a whole show of parrots and macaws and we will learn closely the reasons why these birds, and many other mammals, need the clay of this wall in their daily diet throughout the year. It is a spectacular show that entertains us from 6:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. approx. Our delicious breakfast will be in front of the Collpa Chuncho.
Having already finished our activity here, we will have a short visit to the checkpoint to learn more in a small museum that is located in this place.
