EXOTIC PERU AMAZON TOUR – ITINERARY

DAY 1

Flight Lima – Puerto Maldonado (LATAM LA2573 departing at 09:00 hours and arriving at 10:40 hours) or Cusco – Puerto Maldonado (LATAM LA2075 departing at 11:48 hours and arriving at 12:47 hours).

Transfer Airport to Puerto Maldonado Headquarters
Upon arrival from Lima we will welcome you at the airport and drive you five 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 for one hour to the Tambopata River Port.

Transfer Boat – Tambopata River Port to Refugio Amazonas
The hour boat ride from the Tambopata Port to Refugio Amazonas will take us past 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, who also will offer you that choose from the 22 different excursions available at the Refugio lodge.

On your first day, we recommend have a night walk
After dinner, 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.

Overnight in Refugio Amazonas Lodge.

DAY 2

Oxbow Lake Visit – recommended activity
After breakfast, we will paddle around the lake on a canoe or a catamaran, looking for lakeside wildlife such as hoatzin, caiman and hornerd screamers, hoping to see the otters which are infrequently seen here. You will also be rewarded with overhead sightings of macaws.

Canopy Tower – recommended activity
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.

Farm Visit – recommended activity
Five minutes downriver from the lodge lies a farm owned and managed by charismatic Don Manuel from the neighbouring community of Condenado. He grows a variety of popular and unknown Amazon crops – just about every plant and tree you see serves a purpose.

Ethnobotanical Tour recommended activity
Along this trail we will find a variety of plants and trees that are used by the local population with at least the same variety of purposes. We will learn about the medicinal (and other) uses of Ajo-Sacha, Yuca de Venado, Uña de Gato, Charcot-Sacha, Para-Para, among several others.

Night Lecture – recommended activity
After dinner, nightly lectures prepared by the staff of Refugio Amazonas cover conservation threats, opportunities and projects in the Tambopata National Reserve.

Overnight in Refugio Amazonas Lodge.

DAY 3

Parrot Clay Lick – recommended activity
After breakfast, a fifteen minute boat ride and sixty minute walk from Refugio Amazonas is a clay lick used both by parrots and parakeets. From a blind you will see parrots and parakeets descend on most clear days to ingest the clay on a bank. Species such as Dusky headed and Cobalt winged Parakeet descend at this clay lick. With luck we will also see some or all of the following species in the early morning rush: Mealy and Yellow-crowned Amazons, Blue-headed Pionus, Severe macaw and Orange-cheeled (Barraband`s) Parrot. We visit the lick at dawn, when parrots are most active or in midmorning or early afternoon, when they are active.

Brazil Nut Trail and Camp – recommended activity
A few minutes hike 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.

Mammal Clay Lick – recommended activity
Twenty minutes walking from Refugio Amazonas is a peccary clay lick. These wild rain forest pigs show up in herds of five to twenty individuals to eat clay in the late morning. Chances of spotting them are around 15%, but well worth the short hike. Other wildlife also shows up including deer, guan and parakeets.

Evening free.

Overnight in Refugio Amazonas Lodge.
