07 Days / 06 Nights


Day 01:

Guests are met at the airport by their specialist guide, and taken to the office, where you will be able to repack and leave in storage anything that you will not be needing on this part of your trip. We then continue on to the port in the native community of Infierno, at about 45 minutes from the city of Puerto Maldonado.

During this journey we may make some stops in order to make sightings of the Great Pootoo, Purus Jacamar and White-Throated Jacamar. Once at the port, while we are waiting to embark, we have a chance to see species of oropendolas, tanagers and flycatchers, etc.

During our boat trip up to Explorer’s Inn guests will receive a boxed lunch, and we will also have the opportunity to see riverine birds such as the Cocoi Heron and Capped Heron; as well as some parrots and macaws in flight. There is the chance to see a variety of bird species during this journey, with luck we may even spot a flock of Sand-Colored Nighthawks, or other rare species.

Upon arrival guests will be greeted by the lodge manager, who will give useful recommendations and information to ensure an enjoyable stay.

After a short rest we will make a short introductory walk to search for some nocturnal species, such as the Tawny-Bellied Screech-Owl, and with some luck we may observe the Great Horned Owl.



Day 02:

There will be a very early breakfast before visiting the parrot claylick, located at a 10 minute boat ride from the main lodge, after which we will return on foot.

At the claylick we may see Yellow-Crowned Parrot, Orange-Cheeked Parrot, Chestnut-Fronted Macaw, Blue-Headed Parrot and on occasion we may even get to see Scarlet Macaws.

During the walk back we will be searching for some specialist varieties of birds that inhabit the surrounding areas, such as bamboo forest, primary forest, high forest and stream areas. Some of the species to be found include Striated Antbird, Pectoral Sparrow, Rufous-Fronted Antthrush, Pale-Winged Trumpeter, Blue-Crowned Motmot and Musician Wren, among others.


We will visit Lake Chica at a 20 minute walk from the lodge, to look for species of toucans and aracaries. We will also have the chance to spot other species such as Black-Capped Donacobius and Little Cuckoo.

Upon our return we will attempt to sight some species of owls.



Day 03:

We have an early breakfast before embarking on a full-day hike, complete with boxed lunch, exploring the primary and secondary forests found on our trails “Main” and “Taipir”. We will be walking approximately 6 km in total, in order to search for the largest variety of species possible, hopefully including some mixed flocks which could include Semicollared Puffbird, White-Winged Shrike-Tanager, Red-Crowned Ant-Tanager, Pavonine Quetzal, Round-Tailed Manakin, Scale-Backed Antbird, White-Throated Antbird, Blue-Crowned Trogon, Curl-Crested Aracari, Golden-Collared Toucanet, and many others.

The return to the lodge will be around 4pm, in order to rest before dinner.


Day 04:

We will have an early breakfast before visiting the 42 meter high tower, in order to view canopy birds. Some species which can be observed include Gilded Barbet, Amazonian Pygmy-Owl, Purple-Throated Fruit Crow, White-Necked Puffbird, Paradise Tanager, Turquoise Tanager, Green and Gold Tanager, as well as the chance of seeing species of macaws, parrots, toucans and aracaries, and with a lot of luck the extremely endangered Harpy Eagle.

We will then return to the lodge, looking for understory and ground-level birds on the way.


We will embark on a walk of the Lake Chica trail, entering Big Tree trail and leaving from La Torre trail. This walk will pass through various distinct forest types, allowing us the chance to see perhaps the Blue-Throated Piping Guan, Black-Spotted Bare-Eye, Pale-Legged Hornero, Band-Tailed Manakin, Fiery-Capped Manakin, Cream-Collared Woodpecker and many other species.



Day 05:

An early breakfast where we will also be given boxed lunches for the day.
We walk directly to Lake Cocococha, a 5 ½ km hike, which we will attempt to make as early as possible in order to enjoy birdwatching during the sunrise, where we may see Horned Screamer, Hoatzin, Anhinga and various types of jacanas, kingfishers,  and perhaps Red-Bellied Macaw and Blue and Yellow Macaws. With luck we may see the rare Agami Heron, Point-Tailed Palmcreeper and Long-Billed Woodcreeper. There are various other specialist lake birds that may accompany us, as well as the chance of seeing endangered Giant River Otters.
After a couple of hours rowing around the lake we will return to the lodge, exploring the forest on the way for new species.
We will arrive to the lodge at around 4 pm for a rest before dinner.

*After dinner there is the option of a boat ride on the river for caiman spotting, with the possibility of seeing species of nocturnal birds such as Ladder-Tailed Nightjar, Common Pootoo and Tropical Screech-Owl.


Day 06:

We will make the most of this last chance to walk the trails in order to search for species that have not yet been seen, explore some of the different areas of the forest, or perhaps repeat any of the activities that guests would like to experience again.

Either before or after dinner we will embark on a nightwalk to search for owls and other nocturnal species.


Day 07:

We have an early breakfast and get ready for our departure from the lodge.
The time of departure is programmed according to the flight times for guests finishing their tour on the same day.

Guests are taken from the port to our Puerto Maldonado office, and then on to the airport.

In order to avoid delays in Puerto Maldonado and unnecessary annoyance of customers interested in visiting the Explorer’s Inn, the following notes have to be kept in mind by all clients interested in visiting the Explorer’s Inn

·         Passenger list: It is necessary that we receive as early as possible a list with the following details:  Full name, sex, age, citizenship and passport number of all our passengers or members of a group. This list must be reported   to the marine authorities 24 hours in advanced in order to issue the sailing permit for every boat leaving the docks with tourists. Not to apply in advance for the permit   can delay the departure by at least 2 or 3 hours. It would be very helpful if we know in advanced of any physical limitation and/or health or food restriction.

·         Luggage: We can’t avoid that your customers bring with them all their luggage, but it is very important that they are instructed in advanced that due to limited space in our canoes, they can only take with them one (1) small suitcase or rucksack.(maximum 50 pounds). The excess of luggage can be left in our Puerto Maldonado office. Customers often get very angry when they are informed about this the same day of arrival. It is also important that they bring a small suitcase ready for the trip with them so our departure is not again unnecessarily delayed.

·         Clothing: Guests should arrive to Puerto Maldonado duly dressed for the trip and they should not start getting dressed at our office, what has also been a cause for delays and annoyance to the other passengers. It is also necessary to remind them to bring some warm clothing for chilly nights and mornings which are not frequent even in the Amazon rainforest.  

·         Rubber boots in large sizes: We normally have at the Explorer’s Inn regular size boots available for most of our guests but big sizes such as # 11 + are often impossible to find locally.

·         Boats to and from the Explorer’s Inn: Normally  the airline’s  flights  to and from Puerto Maldonado do not arrive and depart with much time  difference , guests should be clearly informed that, as not being our services private, only one boat a day will do the trip to the lodge either way. Because of this they cannot claim that Peruvian Safaris provides an extra boat if, for any reason, one of the flights is delayed and they have to wait in town until the second flight arrives or, if they have to get up and leave the lodge earlier than necessary to take their return flight.   

·      Responsibility: Peruvian Safaris S.A., while providing our services we will not be responsible for any damages, losses, additional expenses due to delays or any cause however if the person or property in connection with any service result directly or indirectly injured from acts of God or  major force we will assist them.

Peruvian Safaris S.A. reserves the right to modify or withdraw any tour arrangements when deemed necessary in the best interest of our customers. The right is reserved also to accept, retain or refuse any person as member of the tour.
