Itinerary

Day 1: Bosque de Pomac and Chaparri Reserve
From Chiclayo we drive north to access the Bosque de Pomac, this location is very good for to find some rare endemics of the Northern Peru such as the Tumbes Tyrant, Tumbes Swallow, Peruvian Plantcutter, Cinereous Finch, Rufous Flycatcher and will try to find the Peruvian Thick-knee. There is more than pleny to be seen as we get to the Chaparri Reserve where Chaparri Lodge is located facing a dry forest and steep Andean foothills. This area is also well-know for supporting efforts to conserve and recover healtly habitat for the Andean Bear Chaparri Lodge is by far the best place to see the iconic White-winged Guan, a successful story of a nearly exctinct species achieved in the 80s. Birding before dinner may be a good chance to find Scrub Nightjar, Collared Warbling-Finch, Short-tailed Field Tyrant, Sulfur-throated Finch, and Parrot-billed Seedeater.(L,D)

Testimonials

  • A month ago we visited Tambopata, thanks to the recommendation of David, because his experience working for many years in this area, convinced us to know the jungle of Puerto Maldonado and we do not regret it. It was a unique and wonderful experience. The whole organization was perfect for us, we felt very safe with our specialized guide and traveling by boat. Thank you for the incredible moment visiting Tambopata!
