This really is an amazing visit to the rainforest as this is the only lodge inside the park and they are the custodians of the park.
Three to six days spent in the jungle. Here we give just an example of the trips available. It is also possible to volunteer in the centre.
Ask about opportunites for graduates to volunteer for 3 months in the jungle, a real learning experience.
Tambopata National Reserve
Day 1. Introduction to the Jungle
Reception at the airport and transfer to the dock located in the native community of Infierno from where we board our canoe and start a one-and-a-half hour journey to the Explorer`s Inn. During the trip we have a box lunch on board and may see caimans, turtles and capybaras, among other animals. We are received at the Inn with a welcome drink. After resting, we take a short night-hike to see nocturnal rainforest animals. Back at the lodge we have dinner with our guide and some of the Resident Naturalists who are available to answer questions or brief us about the Amazon rainforest and the Tambopata National Reserve.
Day 2. Giant Otters
We rise early and walk with our guide approximately three-and-a-half miles to see the giant otters at Cocococha oxbow lake. On the way we observe plants, insects, butterflies, birds, monkeys and, if we are lucky, possibly larger mammals. At the lake we occupy a strategic hiding place and wait for the otters. Afterwards we take a short canoe ride around the lake watching the wildlife on the shoreline. Back at the lodge we have a late lunch and in the afternoon you can either rest or visit our new 40 meters high canopy tower. At dusk we take a brief walk to Sunset Point to watch night fall in the Amazon. We then board the canoes again to watch caimans with torches.
Day 3. Last day
We will be woken up very early to have breakfast and board the canoe to return to Puerto Maldonado. On the way we will watch the unforgettable jungle dawn on the Tambopata River. Once in Puerto Maldonado we will be transferred to the airport to take our return flight.
