Rurrenabaque – Selva (Jungle) – Rurrenabaque
Our survival adventure treks are based on the principle of pure adventure. In small groups, accompanied by an experienced local guide, you will experience the tropical jungle far from the crowds. Equipped with a GPS and a satellite phone (optional) you go where no other tourist has gone before. Prior to departure, you will have prepared your own itinerary, in accordance with your guide of course. Because of the lack of proper trails and the rugged landscape as well as the climate, these treks are reserved for experienced trekkers. Each participant carries his own equipment as well as part of the food and the collective camping equipment (it is possible to hire a porter). Under no circumstances should you luggage weigh more than 15kg/33lb.
We would like to inform you that the following program description is an example. In accordance with your guide you will decide on your itinerary, depending on the season, the climate, the migration of the animals or simply your interests and wants. You decide how many hours you wish to trek per day, at your own rhythm. The program is completely unconstrained! You also have several choices for the location of the camps; you can either walk all day, to get as deep as possible in the jungle, and install your camp in the evening or trek in the morning, put down your bags at a chosen campsite and walk from the camp in the afternoon, returning to the same place to spend the night. Due to the extreme conditions of the trek, there will be a briefing the night before the trek with the guide in the office of Lipiko Tours.
1. Rurrenabaque – Selva (Jungle)
We leave Rurrenabaque around 08h30 by boat on the Beni river to the indigenous community Tacana. If you are interested by life in the community we are welcome to visit and have lunch or even stay the entire day and spend the night. In this case we can go fishing to see if we can 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 continue by 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 nightly walk to enjoy the sounds of the jungle and observe the nocturnal animals.
2. Selva (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 us. With a little bit of luck we might see wild pigs, tapirs, monkeys, snakes etc. We have lunch and relax before continuing our trek. We 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.
4-14. Selva (Jungle)
After a hearty breakfast we continue our trek deeper into the jungle to observe the flora and fauna and enjoy this fascinating environment. Because this part of the jungle is more remote and therefore little visited the chances of hearing and seeing animals are greater. The vastness of the jungle offers plenty possibilities for a variety of routes.
15. Selva (Jungle) – Rurrenabaque
After breakfast we leave to observe the birds and other animal species of the jungle before packing our bags to 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 Rurrenabaque where the rest of the evening is free. End of our services.
