After a scheduled flight and road transfer, it is a remarkable experience to find oneself suddenly in a boat, journeying upriver through a rainforest teeming with biological diversity (23 km by vehicle, 45 km by boat). After this remarkable experience you will arrive at the Ecolodge, where you will have a chance to relax before being invited to explore the surrounding forest.
The next day, we will spend the morning on the trails and waters of Lake Condenado, in search of typical forest fauna, before boarding our boat in the afternoon for a 2-3 hour ride between forested banks to the remote Chuncho macaw clay lick, where we will explore the surrounding forest and spend the night in our excellently equipped campsite.
The following day will begin before dawn for us, as we position ourselves to witness the scenes at the clay lick. Surrounded by typical rainforest flora, this river bank is visited by parakeets, monkeys, deer, tapir and peccaries, but it is the colors and sounds of the different species of parrots and macaws which make this such a dramatic spectacle. In the late morning we will return to the Ecolodge for lunch, and that evening we will search for nocturnal species along the river. (Read more about macaw clay licks here).
Today the river will once again serve as our highway as we travel back to the town for our return flight to the outside world.
