Faqs Tambopata Tour 4 Days
When to travel to Tambopata?
Tambopata is slightly seasonal, although this is nothing like the drastically different seasons you probably have at home. Tambopata’s dry season runs from April to November, although there is some rain during this time. The rainiest months are January and February, but even then, travelers are rarely affected by rain.
What are the advantages of visiting in the dry season? There is very little chance that your activities will be affected by rain. Treks will generally be drier and less muddy as well.
What are the advantages of visiting in the wet season? In the wet season, many Tambopata macaws nest and visit Clay Licks (see more information about Clay Licks further down the page) much more. This gives you fantastic chances to see dozens of macaws and even see chicks and nests! If you love macaws, come between December and February when the nesting season is in full swing.
What to do in Tambopata?
No one goes to the Amazon to stay inside the lodge, so it is important to plan your main activities. Most lodge and tour providers, including our Rainforest Expeditions lodges, include activities in their nightly rates, so you get the full package. In Tambopata, you don’t wake up and pick a trail to follow (that’s for Paris). Nor do you just sit around and do nothing (that’s for Cancun). Nor do you follow a single path to reach a destination (that’s for the Inka Trail)!
Instead, in Tambopata, your lodge or tour provider offers a variety of activities from which you can choose each day. Most of them should be included in your room rate. There are tons of activities to discover in Tambopata, and you can check them all out here. But you should stay in Tambopata for at least three nights, which will give you time to experience the best sights.
The views from a canopy tower of the rainforest in Tambopata, like this one at our Posada Amazonas lodge, are not to be missed.
These are the must-do activities in Tambopata:
Visit a horseshoe lake: most of the Oxbow lakes in Tambopata have wildlife such as Hoatzin and Anhinga around the lake, palm and fig trees, and piranhas inside. Lake Tres Chimbadas (near our lodge Posada Amazonas), Lake Sandoval and Lake Cocococha also have families of giant otters living in them.
See the view from a canopy tower or suspension bridge: canopy towers and walkways are a key feature at some lodges, including our Posada Amazonas and Refugio Amazonas lodges. They really enrich your trip, giving you spectacular views of the rainforest stretching to the horizon. Canopy Towers is also incredible for bird watching, offering close-up sightings of tanagers, toucans and multicolored parrots.
Go to a clay lick: Clay licks are exposed clay riverbanks visited by many birds and mammals. At clay licks, the animals actually eat the clay, most likely getting more salt in their diets.Check to see if your lodge takes you to a parrot clay lick, macaw clay lick, parakeet clay lick, or a clay lick that attracts a variety of animals. Several lodges, including all of our Rainforest Expeditions lodges, have the most active macaw clay licks nearby, and also attract other species.
