Day 1: Puerto Maldonado - Posada Amazonas

Upon arrival in Puerto Maldonado, you will be met by our guides and escorted to the river port from where we will continue to Posada Amazonas by boat. During the forty-five minute trip it is possible to observe many species of birds in the forests on either side of the river. Arriving at Posada Amazonas, you will receive a short introductory presentation and a complete briefing regarding the lodge and the Eseja Ecotourism Project. In the afternoon we will go for a twenty minute walk from Posada Amazonas to the thirty meter canopy tower. The secure staircase provides safe access to the platforms above. From the top there are spectacular views of the vast expanses of forest sliced through by the Tambopata River. Toucans, parrots and macaws can be seen flying against the horizon. Colorful flocks of birds might even land on the treetop next to you!  After dinner at the lodge, there will be a lecture on ecotourism.
Overnight stay at Posada Amazonas (L/D)

Day 2: Posada Amazonas

Today you will have a very active morning. After an early breakfast we will visit the Tres Chimbadas oxbow lake and take a long, relaxed canoe ride around it. We will be looking for giant river otters, turtles, hoatzins and wading birds. Later, we will continue our exploration by visiting the parrot clay lick just a twenty minute walk from Posada Amazonas. From a strategic viewpoint located about twenty meters from the lick, you will see dozens of parrots and parakeets descend to consume the clay on the river bank. Species such as mealy and yellow- headed Amazons, blue-headed parrots and dusky-headed parakeets are frequent visitors to this clay lick. The clay lick is active at dawn, during the late mornings and in the mid-afternoon.
After returning to the lodge for lunch, in the afternoon we will take a short boat ride downriver to a trail designed by the staff of Centro Ñape. Centro Ñape is a communal organization that produces medicines from forest plants for the patients who come to their clinic. They have created a trail focused on the many medicinal (and other) uses of selected plants. After dinner at Posada Amazonas you will have the option of hiking at night, when most mammals are active but rarely seen.
