Day1. Rurrenabaque – Selva (Jungle)

At 08h30 our Tacana guide picks us up and a short walk brings us to the port where a boat will be waiting to take us to the Eco Lodge where we get installed in our typical cabañas. We then leave for a trek where our guide will teach us about the Tacanas’ traditional hunting techniques. He will explain the different types of traps and how the indigenous people hunt the jaguar, monkey, deer, tapir, and wild boar for their meat and their fur. After this introduction to hunting, we return to the lodge for lunch which will of course consist of local dishes.

After a short “siesta” we continue our visit and we walk to the indigenous Tacana community where our guide will explain the daily life in the community and about agriculture, construction techniques, local traditions and customs, religion, and handicrafts. We have the possibility to discover how to extract juice from sugar cane with a manual sugar cane press. We can return to the lodge on foot or by boat and after a delicious dinner, the evening is free.

Day2. Madidi Nationalpark

The day starts with tropical bird songs and a nice breakfast by the river and your guide will join you after to explain the day’s activities. You can stay the morning near the community and enjoy some of the many offered activities; walk to the canyon, go swimming in the natural swimming pool or go for an exploratory walks learning about the medicinal plants. If you prefer to spend more time inside the Madidi National Park you can choose to leave early after breakfast to head to the cabins inside the national park.

The cabins are located 1 ½ hour’s boat ride up the Rio Beni by way of the Tuichi River, a smaller, more intimate body of water that allows for more animal and bird sightings. Once arrived at the cabins we head out to explore the area and. From here 8 trails lead deeper into the forest, each trail varying in length and difficulty, and in coordination with your guide and the wishes of the group you can explore one of them. In the evening you have the possibility to go for a night trek.
