Welcome to a unique and exciting experience in the Bolivian Amazon! This combined 5-day, 4-night tour will take you to explore the Tacana Indigenous Community of San Miguel del Bala on the banks of the Madidi National Park, as well as the majestic Pampas of the Yacuma River.
On the first day, after breakfast (not included), we will pick you up from your hotel in Rurrenabaque or the airport (if you arrive on the same day of the tour before 10:30 am).
On the first day, we will start our journey by navigating a motorboat on the majestic Beni River. You will discover our Tacana indigenous community of San Miguel del Bala, a hidden gem in the jungle, where you will have the opportunity to learn about the daily life of our people and our ancestral traditions. You will learn to weave with forest materials and to extract a delicious sugarcane juice using the “trapiche”!
After a delicious meal at our eco-lodge, we will venture out to explore the spectacular San Miguel Stone Canyon. On an exciting hike, you will reach a place of unparalleled natural beauty. We also have the option of arriving at the canyon by boat, where you will enter the jungle on foot. After this incredible experience, you can enjoy a delicious dinner in your private cabin and, if you wish, take a night walk through the jungle.
On the second day, after breakfast, we will immerse ourselves in the Bolivian jungle, starting with a hike on the “Traps Trail” and the “Medicinal Plants Trail.” On this exciting hike, you will learn the ancient methods of capturing wild animals from the Tacana, and discover the wonders of the life of medicinal plants in our natural medicine-themed trail.
After a delicious lunch, we will venture to a waterfall that forms a natural pool where you can swim and relax in crystal-clear waters. At the end of this unique experience, we will return to our eco-lodge for a delicious dinner and overnight stay.
Early in the morning, we will serve you breakfast before taking you to Rurrenabaque to start a new adventure on the Pampas tour.
Once you are in Rurrenabaque, we will leave from our offices, traveling by land from Rurrenabaque, we will enter the nature of the Yacuma Pampas. We will have lunch in the beautiful town of Santa Rosa del Yacuma, and then navigate upstream by motorboat on the Yacuma River. During this trip, we will see incredible species such as birds, caimans, turtles, monkeys, capybaras, and maybe even pink dolphins!
At the end of the day, we will enjoy a beautiful sunset on the Pampas, and for those who want something more, they can join a night activity to observe the glow of the caiman’s eyes (for this activity, each person must have a flashlight).
On the fourth day, we will have a walk through the Pampas in search of the imposing anaconda and other animals (for this activity, we will provide you with rubber boots, in Bolivia we only have sizes up to 45EUR). If we are in the rainy season, we will navigate by motorboat to try to find this type of snake in the trees and spot more animals.
After lunch, we will have the unique opportunity to swim with pink dolphins in nearby backwaters. This territorial animal will keep us safe from caimans, and we can enjoy a close encounter with these beautiful creatures.
On the fifth and final day, after breakfast, we will focus on sports fishing for piranhas, a unique and exciting experience. We will have lunch and then head back to Rurrenabaque, where we will arrive around 5 pm.
