Tambopata Macaw Clay Lick 3 days, we will leave at 9:30 am from our hostel in the city of Puerto Maldonado, we will have 2 hours by car, the first part will be by paved road and the second part will be by dirt road until we reach the Tambopata River near the border of the reserve. Our boat will be waiting for us to take us 25 minutes up the river until we arrive to our lodge “Colpas Tambopata Inn”, we will have good chances of spotting capybaras and many shorebirds along the river bank, arriving at the lodge we will get a welcome drink.
After lunch we will hike, first in a secondary forest and then in a primary forest full of huge trees and lianas, at the same time we will talk about the most important economic activities of this region. Chances to see some brown capuchin monkeys and squirrel monkeys are always possible. At the end of the hike, we will climb the highest Canopy tower in Tambopata, this is a great place to see the Amazon basin and what better to see the sunset from here.
In the evening hours we will take our flashlights and next to the boat we will do one of the most exciting activities… caiman spotting at night, we will go looking for white and black caimans along the river bank with a big flashlight, we will also see more Capybaras (capybaras) and if there is a chance to see an ocelot or a jaguar by the river.
