Macaw Clay – Stay deep Natural Reserve Sandoval 5 Days

Every morning at dawn, the macaws, parrots and other species of birds perform their fluttering ceremony before starting the colpeo, which consists of ingesting clay from the clay lick for a period of 25 to 30 minutes. The precise reason why they perform this spectacular behavior is still under debate and is the object of investigation, making it one of the most fascinating spectacles of nature. Visitors can explore the trails, rivers to see as much as posible wildlife on a Tambopata 4 day tour

In case you have large luggage, we suggest that you repack and bring what is required in the Amazon rainforest. Then, transfer in a 4X4 vehicle for approximately 2 hours to reach the Tambopata River.In this part of the trip, we took a motorboat to the lodge. After settling in the ecolodge we will have lunch followed by a walk through the jungle to see and learn. We will have the opportunity to see animals in their natural habitat such as, for example, amphibians, mammals, reptiles and wonderful insects. On dinner, we will have a short briefing about next day activity

We will make a trip of 1 hour and a half by motorboat, during the trip we will have the opportunity to see some animals such as, for example, capybaras, tapirs and it is even possible to see the largest cat in South America, the jaguar.Many travelers are witnesses and bring photographic evidence of encounters with many of these wild animals.After arriving at the macaw clay lick, we will first observe the arrival of large groups of parrots and parrots of different species, which arrive before the macaws to eat the mud located next to the clay wall on the river bank.We will find a camouflaged place as close as possible to better see the clay lick from our chairs to await the start of one of the most beautiful bird watching views on the planet.In a day of normal activity in the macaw clay lick, you will notice a great selection of these wonderful animals flying over you becoming an unforgettable experience.Back to our ecolodge, we will have breakfast and rest after an exhausting activity. Then we will walk through the botanical garden where you can see some fruits, timber trees, and medicinal plants.After lunch we will prepare for transport back to Puerto Maldonado, exactly the same route, we will return to the Puerto Maldonado office to go to a second ecolodge located around the accommodation on the island of the monkeys.After accommodating in, we go before dinner to look for alligators (Alligators 3 species of them) in a motorboat in the darkness of the night along the Madre de Dios river.

You will feel the air flow in your face as you cross the suspension bridge, which leads to a platform wrapped around the huge trunk of a tree, one of the thickest and strongest trees found in the rainforest.Orchids and other aerial plants that grow between tall branches are usually seen closely as the nests of many birds.We return by the bridge of the canopy and climb to the high platform that marks the beginning of the zipline cable, almost 200 m long, that we fly through the air flow like eagles towards a platform.The views are exceptional only harmonized by the enjoyment of overcoming our fears and the adrenaline that flows through us.The footbridge of 200 m long, which hangs on the ground, leaves this system; an act of balance takes us to the platform at the beginning of the second Zip line, flies back to the tower that goes down to the forest floor.After lunch, we go to the river to practice kayaking, well protected with high quality life vests, and followed by a motorboat that guarantees greater security; This activity is quiet and accessible to everyone.Going down the river, or against the flow of the river, we can easily see the countless birds that inhabit this areaBefore dinner, we will make a night walk through the lodge to appreciate the diversity of insects, amphibians, reptiles and other nocturnal animals. then night in the jungle lodge
