Tambopata - Headwaters of the Amazon Jungle Rafting

Reception at Juliaca. We board the truck that will be taking us across the "altiplano" over a 15,000 pass and down to the jungle, to our put-in on the edge of the Amazon Basin. (B,L,D)


Day 2 and 3: Rio Tambopata
As we leave the last traces of civilization, we enter pristine rain forest using the river as a highway, we will raft down the Tambopata River camping on sandy beaches where we will have a chance to encounter wildlife. (B,L,D).


Day 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8: Rio Tambopata
Surrounded by lush vegetation , we will run class III and IV rapids. There also is a good chance of seeing monkeys, capybaras, tapirs and giant river otters, among other animals. Our journey will take us through to the macaw lick, where we spend the night camping on the river shore. At the crack of dawn, we will see a rowdy crowd of macaws with their variegated brilliance covering the clay riverbank. Later, a dug out motor canoe will meet us at the Candamo River to take us to the frontier town of Puerto Maldonado, where we spend the night in a hotel. Here our services will end. (B,L).
