Day 02: Parrot's Clay Lick – Amazon Adventure.

Early in the morning we will walk for about 30 minutes to visit a Parrot's Clay Lick near the Gato River. There you will see many species of parrots, macaws, and other birds and animals that live in this National Reserve.

We will then visit a native community to observe how Amazon people live and use the natural resources of the forest to survive.

After that, we will return to the Wasai Tambopata Lodge for breakfast. Should you decide, we can stop at a nice cascade on the way back where you can swim or just relax.

After a short rest we will take a ride along the Tambopata River on a wooden canoe or individual kayaks. This activity accommodates all physical conditions and ages. During this adventure activity we will enjoy amazing landscapes and watch the birds and wildlife along the river bank. And if the weather permits, we will relax and bathe on any of the beaches along the Tambopata River. Lunch

You will start the afternoon with a botanical walk to a remote swamp area and our "Amazon Adventure Site." Along the way, you will have the opportunity to experience the great biodiversity of our jungle and learn about the hidden medicinal secrets of its plants.
