    You can add an extension to Machu Picchu, after your jungle program. We recommend our:

    1. DAY 1 Arrival in Puerto Maldonado, Tambopata river and Tambopata Research Center

      Flight Lima/Cusco – Puerto Maldonado (arriving before 12:30 hours – booked on your own).

      Welcome to the Amazon!
      Arrive in Puerto Maldonado, the capital of Madre de Dios, and join a 1-hour bus and a 2.5-boat journey to the lodge. Your first taste of the Amazon cuisine will be in the river, while you leave the city to enjoy the amazing jungle landscapes.

      As we cross the confluence with the Malinowski River, we will leave the final traces of human habitation behind. Within the 700,000 hectares of an uninhabited nucleus of the Tambopata National Reserve, sightings of capybara, caiman, geese, macaws, and other large species will become more frequent.

      Tambopata Research Center Awaits:
      A spacious boutique eco-lodge, with a bar, a massage center, and buffet service in the heart of the National Reserve of Tambopata, is the only lodge inside the reserve in front of the Bahuaja Sonene National Park surrounded by dozens of macaw nests belonging to the Macaw Project.

      Jungle Night Walk:
      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.

      Meals included: BL (box lunch), D

    2. DAY 2 Macaw Clay Lick, Monkey Search and Island Exploration

      Discover the Macaw Clay Lick:
      On most clear mornings of the year, dozens of large macaws and hundreds of parrots congregate on this large river bank in a raucous and colorful spectacle that inspired a National Geographic cover story. Discretely located fifty meters from the cliff, we will observe Green-winged, Scarlet, and Blue-and-gold Macaws and several species of smaller parrots descend to ingest clay. Outings are at dawn when the lick is most active.

      Monkey Search:
      This five-kilometer trail covers the prototypical rainforest with immense trees crisscrossed by creeks and ponds. Amongst the figs, ceibas, and shihuahuacos we will look for the Squirrel, Brown Capuchin, and Spider Monkeys as well as peccaries. TRC is located within this habitat.

      Island Exploration:
      Ten minutes upriver from the lodge there is a tiny pond with a platform in the middle. It is a great place to spot waterfowl such as Muscovy duck, sunbittern, and hoatzin along with the woodpeckers, oropendolas, flycatchers, and parakeets that call this pond their home.

      Night Lecture:
      After dinner, scientists will provide a night lecture, an in-depth look at the biology of macaws, their feeding habits, the theories for clay lick use, their breeding and feeding ecology, population fluctuations, and the threats to their conservation

      Meals included: B, L, D

    3. DAY 3 Exploring the Peruvian Rainforest and Sunset Cruise

      Explore the Peruvian Rainforest:
      Stepping carefully over the winding “highways” of peaceful leaf-cutter ants, the Rainforest Master Hike will leave you with unforgettable memories and a profound sense of accomplishment. Due to their years of local experience, our Tambopata Research Center guides know everything about the forest. They’ll spot the tiniest bird hiding in the canopy, the most elusive monkey, and the most spectacular plant life.

      Sunset Cruise:
      Twilight descends early in the jungle. Under the thick tree cover of the rainforest, darkness falls quickly, when the light cannot slip through the foliage any longer. Now, as afternoon slips into evening, you’re about to see one of the world’s most spectacular sunsets. The Sunset Cruise floats down the wide river, countless oranges and pinks reflecting off the water in lovely patterns.

    Camera, binoculars, light-colored & long cotton pants, long-sleeved & light-colored cotton shirts, ankle-high hiking boots and sneakers, flashlight (headlamp) with batteries, sunblock lotion, sunglasses, broad-brimmed hat, rain suit or poncho, insect repellent, small-denomination bills, small daypack, slippers or sandals to walk around the lodge (hiking shoes must be left outside the lodge).

    The lodge is run mainly through a generator. Communications are powered by solar energy and LED bulbs are used in public areas at night.

    There is electricity in common areas three times per day: From 6:00 to 8:00 a.m. / from 12:00 to 2:00 p.m. and from 5:00 to 10:00 p.m. (referential times). You will find Wi-Fi at the lodge. Please note that internet connection might vary on weather conditions and the number of guests

    The use of drones for entertainment is not allowed in the ecolodges since the fauna is quite active and the forest is quite dense. For professional use, let us know so we contact the lodge to process the required permit.

    Although it can rain at any time of the year, the Tambopata region tends to be drier from May until October. The rains start up in mid-November and continue until April. The upsides to visiting during the dry season are the trails that are not muddy, little chance of activities being affected by the rain, and more macaws and parrots on the clay licks. The downsides to visiting during the dry season are hotter weather, less bird activity on sunny days, more difficulty in finding amphibians, and more travel time on rivers due to low water levels.

    The shoulder seasons (April and November) can offer good wildlife viewing opportunities with fewer crowds.

    Your luggage is hand-carried at various stages in the trip for a long distance. We strongly recommend you limit your weight to 15 kilos (33 pounds apiece). You can leave your large luggage in the office at Puerto Maldonado. If you are visiting other destinations in Peru or South America that require different kinds of clothing, you can always pack separate bags and safely leave them at the offices in Puerto Maldonado on the first day so they won’t be carrying them around uselessly. Your bag will be waiting for you at the airport the day you leave.

    The Tambopata Research Center is a spacious boutique eco-lodge, with a bar, a massage center, and buffet service in the heart of the National Reserve of Tambopata. It is the only lodge inside the reserve in front of the Bahuaja Sonene National Park surrounded by dozens of macaw nests belonging to the Macaw Project.

    Its rooms from 21 m2 to 83 m2 feature a private bathroom and an open window facing the forest.

    Your stay includes three meals daily, tea, coffee, guided excursions and activities, refreshments upon arriving, and transfers to and from the airport. Guides for small groups (6 people) are assigned.

    Tambopata is undoubtedly one of the best places to foster a love for nature in the youngest explorers. However, being a remote place, these are our recommendations:

    Children under 3 years old – Due to the weather conditions, location, and orientation of the activities, we do not suggest traveling with children under 3 years of age. The activities are in group service. Private service is available at an additional cost.

    From 3 to 7 years old – For little adventurers, we recommend Posada Amazonas or Refugio Amazonas. These ecolodges have a playground and activities designed for children. Take note that there are some activities that require getting up early.

    From 8 to more – If your child is adventurous and is used to taking walks for more than 1 hour, the Tambopata Research Center is ideal.
