Full description
Day 1: Start the tour with pickup from Puerto Maldonado Airport. Your guide will be waiting for you right in front of the exit with a sign with your name on it so you can find them easily. After a short office visit, head to the river where a boat will be awaiting you to take you to the lodge. Check in to your bungalow then set off for your first jungle tour. Walk for about 2 kilometers through the jungle searching for monkeys, brown agoutis, and butterflies as you learn about the trees and plants which grow there. When it gets dark, begin your night adventure on the river to go in search of caimans and capybaras. Enjoy this exciting tour with the opportunity to learn all about the animals and take pictures.  Day 2: On the next day, visit Lake Sandoval which is located in the heart of Tambopata National Reserve. Here, observe the many bird species, caimans, turtles, monkeys, and giant otters that live here. Return back to your accommodation for a short rest before embarking on your next night activity. Later, head into the rainforest at night, following your guide through the dark jungle in search of night monkeys, tarantulas, frogs, insects, and other nocturnal animals.  Day 3: On day 3, embark on a kayaking adventure, heading downstream to the Monkey Island. When you land on the island, go for a walk searching for monkeys and observe them in their native environment. Enjoy the opportunity to feed and take pictures with them. After lunch, visit a local indigenous family and learn about their culture and way of life.  Day 4: Start your final day pretty early and head to the clay lick to see the parakeets, parrots and 2 species of small macaws. On the way back, search for sloths. After breakfast, your guide will take you to the perfect spot for bird watching and take you for piranha sport fishing. By around 11 AM, head back to the main office from where you will be taken to the airport or bus station and your tour concludes.

This was an incredible experience from start to finish. All the staff were friendly, knowledgable and passionate about what they do. It was an unforgettable trip with so many activities planned. The accommodation felt like you were really experiencing the jungle and you could hear the animals come to life at night. Highly recommend the tour!!

Wonderful lodge, excellent guides, food was great. It's fairly basic but the tours were outstanding, we were usually out for much longer than any of the other tour companies so we got to see more. Of course there are bugs etc but super value for money and we were very sad to leave.
