Arrival at the airport or bus station and transfer to the office for the final talk of our tour before leaving for our adventure. In case you have a lot of luggage, we suggest you repack to save the items you don't need and bring enough for the trip. Land transfer (4X4) in a truck with wheels to our destination for about 2 hours to reach the banks of the Tambopata River, if it is by river it will take more than 6 hours (information only). In this place we will take a boat to the lodge "Monte Amazonico - Tambopata". Welcome and Breakfast or lunch depending on the time of arrival. In the afternoon we will take an introductory walk to the tropical jungle where we will have the opportunity to see animals in their natural habitat such as amphibians, mammals, reptiles and wonderful insects, among others.

We get up early, at 4:30 a.m., to go to the largest macaw clay lick in the world, CHUNCHO, a trip of approximately 1:30 a.m., by boat, on the way we will have the incredible opportunity to see species such as capybara , which is the largest rodent in the world, tapirs, and you can even see the most beautiful South American feline, the jaguar, many of our clients witness with photographic evidence of encounters with these beautiful mammals. After reaching the macaw clay lick, you will see hundreds of different species of parrots that come to eat clay adjacent to the river wall. We will settle in our mounts waiting for one of the most beautiful natural bird shows in the world to begin. The parrots are followed by the 3 most colorful macaw species in America, the red and green, the blue and the yellow ones, plus they gather to eat the clay they need in their daily diet and eliminate toxins. On a good day of activity you will see hundreds of these wonderful animals flying above you. An experience for a lifetime.
