Our expedition begins in Puerto Maldonado; we will receive you at the airport and transfer you to the WASAI Maldonado Ecolodge, where you will receive our welcome with a delicious cocktail or tropical juice. We will embark on a boat with an outboard motor and we will travel for approximately 4 hours through the Tambopata River, to the WASAI Tambopata Lodge & Research Center (Box lunch on route). During the journey we will observe the colonist farms and birds of various species; we will also have the opportunity to see on the way families of capybaras, the largest rodents in the world. Once in the Lodge we will check in and settle and, after a short rest, we will make a nocturnal visit to the forest to observe and hear insects, bats, frogs and maybe we will have an occasional encounter with other nocturnal mammals. Dinner and overnight at the Lodge.
We will get up at approximately 4:30 in the morning, have a light coffee or mate and start our 40-minute journey upstream to the "El Chuncho Macaw Clay Lick", in the "Bahuaja-Sonene" National Park. We will have the opportunity to enjoy beautiful natural scenery and wildlife on the banks of the Tambopata River. Upon our arrival, whenever the weather conditions permit, we will be able to observe one of the greatest spectacles of the wild life, since hundreds of parrots and macaws of various species descend to feed on the clay of a ravine. Afterwards, we will cross the river beach in search of animal tracks while we have a snack. At midmorning, we will return to the lodge to have breakfast and enjoy free time (2 hours approx.), either to rest, to do adventure activities such as: zip lines, tree climbing course, or simply enjoy the facilities and amenities that Wasaí offers.
At 11:00 am we will cross the river by boat (10 minutes approx.), to enjoy the "Cascadas del Gato" and take a refreshing swim in a "natural Jacuzzi". Optionally, we will try to fish some of the more than 250 species of fish that live in the area or go kayaking or canoeing in the river. After lunch, we will enter the jungle making a Ethnobotanic trek through the trails of Tambopata, learning about the plants and medicinal trees of the area, and observing the impressive ecosystem of the Amazon, where we can see walking palm trees, millenary lupunas (trees), snakes, etc. At nightfall, we will take a night boat ride in search of alligators. Dinner and overnight at WASAI Tambopata Lodge.
After breakfast we will start our return on the Tambopata River to the WASAÍ Maldonado Ecolodge, where we will leave our luggage, have lunch and rest briefly. Then we will move again by boat for 30 minutes to Lake Sandoval. We will have a 3 km walk to the shores of the lake where we will board a canoe for a rowing tour, enjoying the beauty of the landscape and observing the lake's wildlife, such as Martines Pescadores, herons, monkeys and exotic birds. With a bit of luck, we will see the family of river wolves (giant otters) that inhabit the lake. We will have the opportunity to bathe in the waters of the lake in complete safety. We will observe the transition from day to night and progressively listen to the sounds of birds and nocturnal insects, which will give way to the sounds of the night. Then we will begin the return to the Madre de Dios River and Puerto Maldonado. After dinner we can rest or walk around the city on foot or by bicycle, the rest of the night will be free to enjoy the nightlife of this cozy city. Night in WASAI Maldonado Ecolodge.
