Madidi National Park
5, 8, 10 day tours
Madidi National park is the last uninhabited, undisturbed area of rainforest remaining in the entire Amazon Basin.
The tours begin in the small jungle town of Rurrenabaque, you'll travel by river using motorized dugout boats to gain access deep into the heart of the Madidi National Park, far beyond the usual tourist stops, and into the home of Tapir, Caimen, Capybara, Jaguar, monkeys, Macaws, Toucans, and more. Jaguarundi, Collared Peccary, River otter, Giant Armadillo, and Giant Anteater may also be seen in addition to the exceptionally abundant birdlife. Some other Amazon favorites inhabit the rivers such as Piranha, freshwater Stingrays and, in some areas, the rare freshwater Pink Dolphin.
This is only a small sample since 44% of all New World mammal species, 38% of tropical amphibian species and more than 1100 avian species are represented here in the Madidi National Park. Day hikes will allow you to truly experience the lush rainforest and learn a few of it's many secrets.
Sleeping in either hammocks or in mosquito net tents on the ground, you'll awaken at dawn to the primeval roar of the Howler monkeys, then travel through constantly changing scenery by day as we move into more remote and smaller rivers, and then drift off to sleep at night watching a fantasy scene as fireflies flitter through the black jungle canopy. The magical, mystical jungle with sounds, sights and smells like nowhere else.
The trips end with a visit to one of the most striking Macaw saltlicks to be found anywhere
Group size is limited to four people. This creates less pressure on our campsites, and greatly improves the wildlife viewing.
If you really want to experience the rainforest on it's own terms, sharing the forest and rivers with the wildlife as it truly lives, then leave the eco-lodges behind and join us deep in the Bolivian jungles.

All jungle tours can be combined with any scheduled or custom tour.
