TAHUAYO CROSSING EXPEDITION 7 DAYS: Just like the rest of our Tahuayo Crossing Expeditions, the more days this territory is explored, the farther our team will be able to lead visitors in order to achieve greater opportunities for wildlife encounters. On this full-week expedition, we will explore multiple remote lagoon and primary jungle areas where we typically find tracks of some of the most difficult to find felines, such as pumas and jaguars. With chances to also find other species of primates and caimans. Additionally, visitors will navigate 3 major rivers and 2 small affluent rivers including the Amazon river at the end.
As an initial introduction on this expedition, we'll be conducting a 3 Days Jungle Trek through primary jungle until we reach our first destination "The AMAZON EXPEDITIONERS Jungle Survival School / Guest House". During this hike our nights as well as the rest of the nights ahead, we'll be moving like nomads, always sleeping in different jungle sites, exploring and conducting at the same time a variety of jungle survival activities.
HIGHLIGHT: Only when the water level of the Tahuayo River is at an average height, the navigation access upstream will open and give visitors an additional exploring opportunity in their itinerary allowing them to reach a place of highland jungle. This exploration trip in small wooden canoes followed by a jungle hike, all together will easily last 2 days total going and returning. The purpose of this excursion will be to reach a "Clay Lick" or best known as "Collpas" by the locals. The word “Colpa” derives from the "Quechua" Inca dialect, which means "Salty Land", where all different species of animals gather to lick and feed on its minerals (macaws, parrots, and mammals).
