Day 2 - Pampa
Day 3 - Pampa – Rurrenabaque
Day 4 - Rurrenabaque – Jungle Zip-Line
Day 5 - Jungle – Rurrenabaque – La Paz
We fly early from La Paz and leave Rurrenabaque around 09h to the pampas in the natural reserve of Santa Rosa de Yacuma. After a 3-hour drive we reach the river Yacuma where we board a small boat which will take us up the river to the lodge where we can have a rest in the hammocks and have lunch. In the afternoon we go for a boat ride on the river watching animals and birds that live in and around the river such as caimans, turtles, capybaras, pink river dolphins and various species of monkeys. We return to the lodge where we will have dinner and spend the night.
Day 2: Pampa
We get up at sunrise to admire the splendour of the Pampa at dawn. After breakfast we leave on foot across the Pampa to observe the mammals and reptiles of the area, including the Anaconda and alligators (depending on the season). We return to the lodge for lunch, and in the afternoon we go for another boat ride in order to observe the pink river dolphins and swim with them (depending on the season – usually January to March), and we can also fish for piranha. After dinner we go for a nightly boat ride in order to observe the animals at night.
Day 3: Pampa – Rurrenabaque
In the morning we sail on the river Yacuma in order to observe the yellow monkeys and other animals. After lunch at the lodge we return to Rurrenabaque by car and we estimate to arrive around 17h00.
Day 4: Rurrenabaque – Jungle Zip-Line
We leave Rurrenabaque around 08h30 by boat on the Beni river to reach Villa Alcira and we continue with a one hour hike through the tropical forest. This part of the forest is filled with fruit trees and exotic vegetation and we’ll be flying right above the lush forest! The fantastic zip-line (or canopy) is the longest of Bolivia and has nine platforms which offer breath-taking views of the Bolivian Amazon and the Madidi National Park. After this unique experience we return to the community for lunch and after a short rest we hike to a natural swimming pool in the forest where we can go for a refreshing swim. You can either choose to return to the community and spend the night in a cabin or overnight in a tent near the natural pool.
Day 5: Jungle – Rurrenabaque – La Paz
After breakfast we leave for a long trek through the rainforest and our guide will share with us his knowledge of the trees, medicinal plants and animals that live in the area. With some luck we might see wild boars, tapirs, monkeys, snakes etc. After lunch we return to Rurrenabaque and fly back to La Paz.
