Day 1: Arrive Puerto Maldonado and journey to the lodge
Following your early morning flight to Puerto Maldonado from Lima (1:20hours) or Cusco (25 minutes), you will be met at the airport by your naturalist guide and transferred to a motorized dugout canoe for the trip up the Tambopata River to the lodge. On the journey the vegetation changes from colonized deforested areas to virgin rain forest. A box-lunch is provided on board. On arrival you'll have a welcome drink and meet the rest of the staff. In the late afternoon you set off for an introductory walk into the "terra firme" forest behind the lodge (Trail 2), dominated by giant Brazil-nut and Dipteryx trees. Frequently seen mammals on this trail are Saddleback Tamarins, Brown Capuchins, Agoutis, Pacas, Blue-Morpho butterflies, Trogons, Toucans and many other species of birds. Night in Tambopata Jungle Lodge.

Day 2: Trip to the Macaw Clay-lick (Collpa)
After breakfast you return to the canoe to continue the journey upstream, a further 4 hrs, to an area deep within the Reserve Zone where the isolated Collpa is situated. The Collpa is actually one of the large clay cliffs lining the Tambopata River in this area. After lunch you and your guide have the afternoon to explore the trail system in the area. Camping on the beach near the Collpa.

Day 3: Full day at Collpa and exploring forest trails
A pre-dawn start is needed to get to the clay-lick before the birds. They arrive in search of minerals and salts and the digestive properties of the clay particles themselves. On average several hundred Macaws and smaller parrots visit the clay-lick daily, including Scarlet, Blue and Yellow, Red and Green, Chestnut-fronted and Blue-headed parrots, among others. This clay-lick is considered one of the largest in the world After lunch we will return to the trail system in search of some of the nine species of monkeys present in the area, including Spider monkeys, Squirrel monkeys and Dusky titi monkeys as well as the elusive large mammals like Tapir, White-lipped peccaries and Jaguar. Camping on the beach near the Collpa.

Day 4: Visit the Collpa and return to Tambopata Jungle Lodge
A second opportunity to witness the wonders at the lick. You will return to the Tambopata Jungle Lodge in the early afternoon in time for lunch. After dark you will go searching for Caiman (alligators) and other nocturnal animals by canoe along the Tambopata River. Night in Tambopata Jungle Lodge

Day 5: Return to Puerto Maldonado

A dawn start is required for the canoe trip back to Puerto Maldonado giving memorable views of the sun rise over the river.
