The jungle town of Puerto Maldonado is the starting point for this four-day stay in the rainforest. Our staff will meet you at the airport and escort you for the 72-kilometer river journey. Our launch will take us to the Ecolodge in three hours, while minimizing negative impact with its high fuel efficiency and fiberglass (rather than wooden) hull. This river journey serves as our first introduction to the rainforest, and upon arrival –after time to relax and enjoy the atmosphere of the Ecolodge- you will be invited to enter the forest you saw from the boat in the company of a naturalist guide.
Your first full day in the rainforest will be spent on the trail system leading to Lake Condenado and on the waters of the lake in one of our canoes as we search for local birdlife and other native fauna. Forest lake systems are the best places to spot birds and other wildlife.
The next day we will go much further into the forest to visit the wetland system around Lake Sachavacayoc. The forests around this beautiful lake teem with birdlife, and the waters are home to black caiman (read more about caimans here). and giant river otters (read more about giant river otters here). Back at the Ecolodge in the afternoon, you will have time to relax in a hammock or explore our clearly marked trail system independently.
We will leave the Ecolodge early in the morning for the return by river to Puerto Maldonado
