Explore the Amazon in Peru, visiting the  Tambopata National Reserve. You will be able to see species such as;  monkeys, black Caymans, chances of seeing Giant Otter, Macaws, different species of birds, romantic and relax excursions around the lake.  The most spectacular clay-lick of the world definitely the best combination to enjoy the jungle with active comfortable and successful excursions

Lodging and Activities.

We only use lodges that have the best location of the Tambopata River, bordering the Tambopata National Reserve, easy to access to two oxbow lakes (oxbow lakes are the best areas to see wildlife in the Amazon). Condenado lake is close to the lodge and Sachavacayoc is deep in the jungle where night walks looking for tapir and other interesting and nice creatures,  macaws and monkeys and at night large Caymans.

Number of People for Ideal on Amazon Tour

We always have a maximum of 8 people per group standard its 4-6 people in order to maximize the experience. This means a much higher standard operational service and for performing an ideal Amazon Tour in Peru.

Safety while traveling in the Amazon in Peru – Tambopata

Despite all the stories rainforest are relatively safe to be in, especially when compared with traffic in the big cities in Peru, nevertheless its necessary to be aware of the dangers. Just as you know that crossing the road without attention. Believe it or not many more people get killed by falling branches and seed-pots than by all the dangerous animals together. Be aware of that especially when its windy and during heavy rains. On top of that, its worth mentioning the major risk while exploring the Amazon Rainforest in Peru.

Mosquitos (Malaria, Leishmania, Botflies, dengue)

Prevention its the keyword, always wear long-sleeved shirts and long trousers. Use insect repellent if mosquitoes are seen or heard (or always). Sleep under the mosquito net provided repellent on shirt and trousers is good advice. Be aware of long term effects even a month later.

Peccaries

Forest pigs, shortsighted and that is why they might be dangerous if you hear, smell or see them, leave them alone and don’t talk much until they go away.

Jaguars

They are very rare and avoid noisy tourist, you are lucky if you see one. Don’t run away because that may provoke an attack, just observe or if you are scared, scream loudly, move your arms and slowly move backs. The Jaguars will look at you in surprise, raise his shoulders, decide that you are crazy and slowly walk away.

Chiggers

Mite larvae, they live in clearings, at forest borders and soccer fields.  Their saliva causes strong reactions in humans within a day they have left you, but their presence will be noticed for days or even days later. They don’t transmit any disease but cause a lot of scratching, tug your trousers into your socks

Spiders

Not a big deal, fatal spiders live in deserts, tarantulas rarely attack, and if so, are not fatal, their hairs might cause and allergic reaction.

While Swimming

Small  Caymans are not likely to attacks but never try to hold them, white caymans have the reputation to be more aggressive (2 cases of Black Caimans have been reported within Manu along the years).

Piranhas

Piranhas are not a problem, don’t pee in the water while swimming though. You seldom attract the small candiru fish and they might mistake your body openings for the gill openings of a big catfish. Always makes your guides swim first to prove that it is really safe.

Snakes

Scary if seen, but snakes are rare and there are about six fatal species in the region, coral snakes are not likely to attack, especially not because their fangs are not big enough for it (between your toes is the most likely the place so don’t walk on sandals along the trails).

Bushmasters

Bushmasters might be aggressive, they are territorial and nocturnal and will strike for the heat, just above boots, don’t lower your bumps in the bushes without checking them.

Radio – collared bushmasters have been reported to sleep within half a meter from a trail where tourists walked by without noticing the snake, so don’t walk off the trails without guidance.

Fer de lance Snakes

Fer de lance snakes are more often seen, they love to check clearings and under buildings for rodents and amphibians, they are aggressive and easily attack if disturbed.

Be aware specially when walking around the buildings at night always bring your flashlights.  If you bitten  it is not likely the snake has injected all its venom that would be silly because it might take 2 weeks  to the snake to produce  new supply of venom and humans are not their prey , try to relax , don’t panic , don’t try to suck the venom out by yourself  , don’t cut into the flesh ,these practices does not help much.

You will be assisted by our guides that carry anti-venom as soon as possible or being evacuated to the local hospitals,  in general, to keep your distance from snakes.

Anacondas

The 1997 movie ¨Anaconda¨was a blessing for the rainforest, it scared people, and it is people who threaten nature, the funny thing about this movie is that it gives people what they already know or what they already think they know.  All preconceptions show up, obviously, the filmmakers did not care about facts of the real world.
