Day 1: Rurrenabaque – Pampa
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: La Paz - Rurrenabaque – Jungle
We fly early from La Paz and leave Rurrenabaque around 08h30 by boat on the Beni river to the indigenous community Tacana. If you are interested in the life in the community we are welcome to visit and have lunch or even stay the entire day and night. In this case we can go fishing and catch dinner. Maybe you even have the chance to participate in a party, a birthday or a traditional event in the community – you will be welcomed with open arms. If you prefer to continue your trek we will be going directly into the tropical forest where we discover the endemic flora and fauna. In the evening we will choose a suitable location to set up our camp and have dinner. Later we can go for a night walk to enjoy the sounds of the jungle and observe the nocturnal animals.
Day 5: Jungle
After breakfast we leave for a long trek through the tropical forest and our guide will share his knowledge of the trees, medicinal plants, the birds and the animals. With a little bit of luck we might see wild boars, tapirs, monkeys, snakes and more. We have lunch and relax before continuing our trek. We also might have the possibility to swim in a natural swimming pool. During dinner we have the chance to share with our guide his experience of the fascinating environment and the different legends of the people of the forest.
Day 6 : Jungle - Rurrenabaque - La Paz
After breakfast we leave to observe the birds and other animals before packing our bags and return to Rurrenabaque. By mid-afternoon we arrive at the banks of the Beni river where a boat will be waiting to bring us to back to Rurrenabaque and from there we fly to La Paz.
