SAS Travel Peru

Overview

The Matsigenka are an indigenous or native people belonging to the Arawak linguistic family. Part of its cultural identity is the close relationship with the territory, which is considered a source of life since it provides various means for subsistence, as well as all the beings that inhabit it are important.
---
The inhabitant of the Amazonian basin does not want civilization, because he does not need it and it is onerous for him, the dress makes him sick; he has plenty of food: he has absolute freedom, how chaining a man with needs, when he has plenty. Padre Gerardo Fernandez.

Transport

VERY IMPORTANT: because the transfer from the office in the city of Puerto Maldonado to the lodge is done in river boats we invite the passengers to repack and carry in a smaller backpack or suitcase only what goes to need during your stay at the lodge. Large suitcases will stay in the office. In this way the weight of the boat will not exceed the maximum allowed and we will facilitate the transfer to the lodge.

Program Itinerary

Day 1: Reception at Padre Almirez International airport.

Here your professional guide will await you. He will accompany you throughout your stay. From there we will go to our office to obtain the official waterway permits (you can also guard luggage you won’t need during your stay). Meanwhile you can visit the town’s main square and also take some photos of the beautiful scenery overlooking the confluence of the rivers Madre de Dios and Tambopata from Grau square.

Embarkation will be at Capitania Port, the destination being our lodge. We will navigate approximately 40 minutes on the Madre de Dios River in a typical Amazonian boat.

Arrival at the Corto Maltes Amazonia Lodge. Here we will have a welcome cocktail. Afterwards you will be handed over the keys to your bungalow and we will have lunch. The kitchen of our Lodge stands out for the beautiful presentation and the exquisite tastes of the dishes prepared by our French chef.

After that you will have some free time to get comfortable in your bungalow, or take a refreshing dip in our pool.

3:30pm: It gets time to have some first contact with the jungle. On this trek you will see a large variety of tropical trees, medicinal plants, insects, butterflies and other animals. Upon return we will make a small stop at a lookout. Here you can observe toucans, macaws and other species of birds upon your return for sunset. (Duration: between 2,5 and 3 hours)

Returning to the lodge you can take a refreshing dip in the pool or have an exotic cocktail in our terrace- bar. You could also watch the sunset in the relaxing, tranquility of palm and mango trees at our port.

7pm: Before dinner we will go on a nightly boat trip, a little safari trying to spot the white caiman (caiman crocodilus) that lives in the river banks.

8pm: After the delicious dinner, those who wish can have some Smalltalk in our reclining seats or have some fun and make friends with other travelers in the bar. Another option is to take a bath in the pool (with bar) under the shining Amazon sky and marvel at the Cross of the South.

Day 2: “Monkey Island” and Sandoval Lake excursion.

At 5:30am we will go on a trek of about 20 min until we arrive at the parrot clay- lick. Here a minimum of five different species feeds on special clay, vital to their metabolism. It’s a truly marvelous, multicolored spectacle.

8am: Breakfast and free time to explore the splendid gardens of Corto Maltes Amazonia. We have dozens of varieties of exotic plants and flowering trees.

10:30am: Again we will navigate the Madre de Dios River. This time on an expedition destined to “Monkey Island” where some species of these interesting and entertaining animals live in freedom. Following another boat ride of 30 min we will enter the territory of the Tambopata- Candamo National Reserve. We will trek 5km through the dense vegetation of the tropical rainforest. Giant trees, snakes, monkeys, birds and sometimes even the illusive jaguar can be observed here

Our destination is heavenly Sandoval Lake. Its privileged settings are shared by numerous species of animals: Birds (in particular Hoatzins, Kingfisher, and Cormorants), different species of monkeys (Squirrel monkeys, Howler monkeys, Capuchin monkeys). At the lake itself we can enjoy the spectacle of Giant River Otters. Black Caimans and Piranhas (sometimes we can even observe anacondas in the areas covered by reed). This is also the habitat of the giant Arapaima, a fish of more than 2,5m, weighing in at +200kg. Traveling by canoe, the sunset in the lake is a spectacular unforgettable sight. On our return to the river we might be able to spot some nocturnal animals.

8pm: The body demands rest and food after an active day in the jungle. You will enjoy the exotic tastes of our meals, especially our desserts. If you still have energy left you can share moments of music and conversation in the bar whilst having a cocktail or enjoy the sounds of the rainforest surrounding you from your hammock.

After a long day full of activity you will enjoy the comfort of you bungalows hammocks. You can also recover with a massage by the lodges’ qualified masseurs.

Day 3: Visit a native community.

8am: Breakfast and free time to have a bath in the pool or maybe buy some exclusive Amazon handicrafts and jewelry in our shop.

10am: We will follow the course of the river for approximately 1,5 hours in order to visit a native community. Occasionally we can see monkeys, river turtles, caimans and various birds in the dense vegetation of the riverbanks. We will also see some medicinal plants. (Sangre de Grado, Oje, Capirona)

The “Project for the Rescue of Cultural Values” supports the local native community “Palma Real”. It is the biggest with approximately 200 families of the Ese’eja tribe.

This project, located at Gamitada island works together with two families that will introduce us to the cultural values of their ancestors, their language, their customs, their garments and their dances. In an era where globalization rapidly changes traditional societies this is a great opportunity to have direct contact with this tribe of ancient warriors and hunters. As well as a chance to support them economically with the purchase of some of their handmade products

1pm: Circumnavigating the Gamatida Island we can occasionally see animals escaping the human presence. Afterwards we will visit a chakra (local term for farm). We will get to know a variety of tropical fruits and other local products (Cocoa, bananas, café, cocona). Here we will also have lunch consisting of a typical Amazon dish.

The chacarero(farmer) will also let us taste some of the fruits that will later be taken to the city of Puerto Maldonado for consumption.

Upon return to the lodge you will surely enjoy a bath in our swimming pool; maybe with a cocktail that might also serve as an aperitif for dinner.

8pm: Dinner is served. After dinner you can retire to our bar to have some tropical cocktails, relax chit-chatting in our reclining seats at the central terrace or have a bath in the pool underneath the shining Amazon sky.

Day 4: Visit to Taricaya centre

At 8am: Breakfast and free time.
At 10.30am: Boat ride of approximately 90 min to the “Taricaya Biological Centre” (headquartered in the UK) This centre can count on the collaboration of universities from around the globe who send volunteers helping to guard and reintroduce hurt or confiscated animal s into their natural habitat. We will have sufficient time to see the animals and visit the facilities accompanied by a volunteer of the centre.
The name of the centre “Taricaya” goes back to a conservation project for the river turtles or “tarikayas” that collects, and incubates the eggs and returns the offspring back to the Madre de Dios River upon birth.(unfortunately there is a black market who is responsible for adding this animal to the list of the species in danger of extinction)
There are lots of animals to be seen: Jaguars, various monkeys, tapirs, peccaries and exotic birds such as the Pale-Winged Trumpeter.
Hurt or sick animals captured on the black market or brought from the jungle are nursed and later on returned to their natural environment. The Centre has also constructed a Canopy Walk (Suspension bridge at a height of 42m with a length of 90m, mainly for bird watching).
At 1pm: Lunch, afterwards 30min of free time you might want to use to talk to the resident volunteers.

At 2:30pm: 30min trek through primary rainforest to the Canopy Walk

At 3pm: After climbing the first tower of 14m we will ascend to a platform (height 42m) via the suspension bridge. Here we have an extraordinary panoramic view of the jungle. The trees seen from above, the sounds of the jungle emerging from underneath our feet and the overwhelming green for as far as the eye can see. Few times will you have the chance to experience the jungle in this unique way.

At 4pm: Return to the boat. Throughout the journey back to Corto Maltes Amazonia you can marvel at the sunset showing off shades of gold, pink, yellow and green creating an almost magical atmosphere. Upon return to the lodge you can refresh yourself at the pool or slow down in the hammocks. Alternatively a massage by the lodges’ qualified personnel might just make your stay with us unforgettable.

At 8pm: Every dinner is a chance to taste new dishes at Corto Maltes Amazonia. The imagination of our French chef will fascinate you with every dish and his desserts made of tropical fruits.

The night comes alive with animal sounds. You can enjoy this concert in our bar with a cocktail or maybe a cup of tea. The starry night sky is spectacular, especially in moonless nights when the jungle is even more mysterious.

Day 5: Good Bye Corto Maltes

After breakfast its time to say goodbye to the setting and staff of Corto Maltes Amazonia. Your guide will accompany you on your way back to the city. We will pass by our office again to recollect the baggage left. Following that we will visit the local market to show you agricultural products of the region; especially fruits of the Amazon. Afterwards our personnel will accompany you to the airport wishing that your stay was as pleasant for you as it was for us to show you this beautiful corner of Peru.
