PS03 - Jungle Adventure - 2 nights at the EI
Day 1. Reception at the airport, transfer
to PS's office to prepare for the river trip and boarding
of our motorized dugout canoes. On occasions, if the weather
permits it, we will be driven in the bus for 30 minutes to
an indian community where we will board the canoe, saving
2 hours of the boat ride. Depending of the hour we will have
either a box lunch on the boat or lunch at arrival to the
EI. During the trip we may see caymans, turtles and waterfowl,
etc. After approx. 3 hours we will arrive at the EI lodge
where we will be received with a welcome drink. We are now
deep inside pristine rainforest and surrounded by its sounds.
After a short rest we will have a short hike to a small lagoon
and return in time to enjoy a jungle sunset at Sunset Point.
After returning to the lodge we will board again the canoe
for a short night ride to spot with flashlights caymans on
the river banks. After returning we will have dinner, at which
the Resident Naturalists (RNs) will be available
to answer questions or brief us on the Amazon rainforest.
Day 2. After an early breakfast, guided
by one of our RNs, we will start a 3 ½ miles hike to
Cocococha oxbow lake. On the way we will
observe exotic plants and insects, colorful butterflies and
birds, monkeys and, with luck, perhaps even some of the large
mammals. At the lake canoes will be available for a ride around
it watching the giant river otters and wildlife on the shoreline.
Return to the EI for a late lunch. Afternoon free for relaxing
or independent activities. Dinner.
Day 3. Very early wake up and breakfast.
Boarding of the canoe to return to Pto. Maldonado
watching an unforgettable dawn on the Tambopata river.
Transfer to the airport for return flight. End of services.
