DAY 1: NATAMU (-/L/D)

After welcoming you at the airport or hotel we head by boat to the Natamu Nature Reserve in Peru, home of the indigenous Chinería community who live along the banks of the river with the same name. At Natamu, we will go on an ecological walk, if the water level permits it. If the water level is too high we will explore the tropical rainforest by canoe or kayak. If the water level permits it we might be able to visit a waterfall nearby too. We will visit the indigenous community, go fishing if you like and simple relax and soak in the beauty of the rainforest.

After dinner we can go on a nature walk to explore this part of the jungle at night and we can see if we can spot Caymans on a night boat trip.

Accommodation is in cabañas (huts)
