The Great Jungle Adventure (4 Days)

The Great Jungle Adventure (4 Days)

Amazon Rainforest Lodge is a family lodge: children are welcome, youngsters, adults, everybody. We have two bungalows for movement impaired persons. All the walkways are on just one level so that a wheelchair can be used anywhere.

Amazon Rainforest Lodge is located on the banks of the Momon River, only a 45-minute boat trip from Iquitos City.

Just one thing: Remember that we are in Secondary rainforest so unfortunately you will not see any large animals in our area, but we do have around 60 species of birds flying around. I highly recommend the early morning (dawn) boat tour where you will see all the birds and small animals in all their glory.

Although we are a ‘jungle lodge’ we try to provide as many facilities as a good hotel would also provide (internet connection, Direct TV, etc).

Itinerary - The Great Jungle Adventure (4 Days / 3 Nights)

Daily departures from Iquitos or Lima.

 

Day 1: ... (Lima) / Iquitos / Amazon Rainforest Lodge (D)

  • Our guide collects you from the airport or your hotel; the transfer by bus from Iquitos airport to the Bellavista port is a 1/2 hour ride.

  • On the way we pass the fascinating vibrant jungle metropolis with historical roots in the rubber boom.

  • We head towards the Bellavista harbor on the Nany River to board our speedboat for a 45 minute trip up the Nanny and Momon rivers (Note: It is quite possible that you will share the boat trip with other passengers who are entering the lodge at the same time).

  • On the way we observe the Nanay and Amazon River, you will note the “meeting of the waters” a blending of the Amazon which is brown and Nanay which is black water. (Sometimes you can see the pink or gray dolphins).

  • We will appreciate our natural wonder that is the “Amazon River”

  • Visit to “Barrio Florido” - Fundo Don Pedrito a small village where you can see Victoria Regia plants, and see a collection of aligators and paiche fish.

  • On the way to the lodge we stop to visit the Serpentarium. A local Peruvian man has a fine collection of wild animals including Boa and Anaconda snakes, monkeys, jungle cats and sloths. He is happy for you to pick up the animals and take plenty of photographs. This is actually a real fun part of the whole jungle tour experience as it is the only time that you can really get up close and personal with the animals!

  • Upon arrival at the Lodge we are warmly greeted with a welcome drink made of local tropical fruits. Our Guide will explain the activities and he will give an orientation of the bungalows and the main facilities available at the Lodge.

  • We have our first taste of the delicious food in our restaurant “The Hungry Monkey”.

  • Free Afternoon: Boating, walking excursion or If you prefer, time to relax at the lodge such as the large swimming pool, the water slide, the Jacuzzi as well as going to the top of our two towers to enjoy the view or relaxing on the balcony overlooking the Momon river to watch the boats sailing by and observe the birdlife.

  • After dinner your Guide fascinates us with tales of the jungle, telling us about jungle folkore: Tales of pink dolphins that turn into humans and seduce young maidens, the whistling of the Tunchi, and the one-legged ELF known as the Chulluchuki.

 

Day 2: Amazon Rainforest Lodge (B-L-D)

  • (Optional) We rise at the crack of dawn, around 05:30 AM, for an hour long canoe ride up river to enjoy the great variety of bird life. Many bird species of the Amazon are active at this hour feeding on fruit trees and diving into the river to catch small fish. We hear their joyful singing as they fly around.

  • After breakfast: Hike through the jungle to explore the rainforest. We visit the river communities of Gen Gen and Centro Fuerte where we will learn the customs and habits of the mestizo people who live on the river banks of the Amazon region. These “River People” are humble subsistence farmers and fishermen. In their small plots they harvest manioc tuber and plantains. They use small canoes and fishing nets to harvest the abundant variety of fish in the river. We will have a game of football against the local villagers from Gen Gen or Centro Fuerte (optional).

  • Visit the Botanical Garden “Chullachaki”. The owner will give an explanation about medicinal plants growing in this beautiful garden.

  • We visit the ‘Alamas’ Indigenous Tribe. They recently moved to our area and they have built a small community with a large communal hut where they offer us a typical friendly greeting. They dance and sing and perform their traditional rituals. They offer us their home made handicrafts made out of local plants, seeds and wood from the area.

  • After the delicious evening meal we motor our way up river with our long canoe; after a while the Guide switches off the engine and in complete silence we drift downstream under the moon and stars, enjoying the chorus of nocturnal animals, fire flies, insects, frogs, birds, owls, jumping fish and other creatures of the night.

  • Overnight at Amazon Rainforest Lodge.

 

Day 3: Amazon Rainforest Lodge (B-L-D)

  • After breakfast we will travel by boat to Piranha Park a private reserve. It is a place to enjoy nature; there are five lakes, in one of them you can fish piranhas, in another other fish of the region, take a ride on a cayak; you can observe primates, a great variety of trees with long fibers and medicinal plants; you can see Victoria Regia, considered the largest water lilies; they have large round leaves measuring up to 1 meter in diameter, the flower is up to 40 cm diameter. They open from six in the evening, blooming from March to July. In this area you can find virgin forest and explore the mysteries of our jungle.

  • Afternoon: Take a hike to the Trapiche where you will see the local sugar cane maker and taste his delicious sugar cane liquor.

  • Night tour: We will go for a walk to see and hear the sounds of the night; you can find some of the insects, snails, centipedes and frogs that produce the cacophony of sounds that begin after dark. Sometime you see tarantulas!.
