DAY 1: MOCAGUA + JUNGLE CAMP (-/L/D)

We will pick you up from the airport and take a boat to Mocagua, where we will be received by a local guide. We will have lunch in the community before starting our hike through the Amazon rainforest for approximately 3 to 4 hours. During high water season we will have to take a boat for about half the way before we will be able to hike for around 2 hours. We will arrive at the base camp, where we will organize lunch, explore the environment listen to the monkeys. In the evening you will learn more about how to spot wildlife and about the rituals of the Amazonian people, such as “asking permission to of the jungle” which, according to local beliefs, is essential towards safely making the rainforest your temporary home. After dinner, we will try and implement what we have learnt and spot wildlife.

Accommodation is in the jungle in hammocks

DAY 2: WILDLIFE HIKE (B/L/D)

Life in the jungle begins very early, so we will wake up almost at dawn, to have a big breakfast giving us the energy and strength essential for this physically very demanding day. We will walk for 8 hours around 15km through the heart of the jungle (depending on the physical condition of each person, the routes can be adjusted). The necessary breaks and a longer stop for food will be made. We will learn about the rivers, plants and their medicinal uses, survival strategies, find water, and get in contact with the wild. We will teach you about the flora and fauna, but main attention will be paid to the sighting of monkeys. We return to base camp just in time for dinner.
