Mon
May 11, 2015 – Pucate River
The Pucate River is one of the three main rivers in the reserve. Aboard the skiffs and kayaks, you’ll explore this black water stream, looking for parrots, macaws and perhaps monkeys, such as the monk saki with its gray and black body, naked face and long shaggy tail. You might also see the saddle-back tamarin whose high chirping notes can easily be confused with those of a flock of birds.
Tue
May 12 , 2015 – Amazon River and Sapuena Village
Today, you’ll see terra firma, a distinct ecosystem within the Amazon. Hike, or travel by skiff, to see the vegetation and wildlife noticeably different from the seasonally flooded forests. Reaching an important junction of the Amazon headwaters, you’ll see where the Ucayali & Marañon rivers merge to form the mighty Amazon River. You’ll also visit the Sapuena Village to learn about the life of the ribereños—those who live on the riverbanks.
Wed
May 13, 2015 – El Dorado River
Explore the river to find the giant Amazonian water lily Victoria regia. This beautiful aquatic plant grows in small lagoons known as cochas. Hike a trail with excellent bird watching, and learn about caciques and oropendolas. At the junction of the El Dorado River, look for dolphins, see abundant birdlife or look for iguanas lazing in the sun and sloths hanging in the upper canopy. Also, keep watch for squirrel monkeys. Tonight, return to the boat after sunset and explore nocturnal wildlife with a spotlight!
Thu
May 14, 2015 – Atun Poza
Today, explore Atun Poza by skiff, looking for lagoon birds such as egrets, herons, jacamars, ringed kingfishers and various raptors. Continue up the Pacaya River to Yanayacu lagoon, where the waters of this lake originate in the very heart of the Pacaya-Samiria National Reserve. This rainforest is home to red howler and capuchin monkeys, three-toed sloths and numerous species of parrots. Today, with luck, you may swim in the vicinity of Amazonian pink river dolphins!
Fri
May 15, 2015 – Yabauacu Lagoon
You’ll continue exploring by kayak and skiff today, seeing the flowering and fruiting of plants and trees that coincides with the floods of standing water. This is a great time to see the many fish, including piranhas, swim around the trees to feed on the fallen fruit!
