Details of Deep Jungle Headquarters - Peruvian Amazon, Iquitos, Peru Hiking & Trekking Details for Deep Jungle Headquarters - Peruvian Amazon


The trip to Tapiche Ohara's Reserve is focused on experiencing spectacular scenery, learning about Amazon flora and fauna, and listening to the intricate sounds of the jungle in a remote location where few humans have traveled.

Typical Day

Suggested trip to Tapiche Ohara's Reserve:

Day 1. Travel from Iquitos to the Reserve. This day long trip is full of sightseeing in urban, exurban, and increasingly remote areas. If this is your first trip into the jungle, it may remind you of Apocolypse Now.

Day 2. Early morning hike through the cilliar forest and understory along a tract that goes inside the reserve. Return for breakfast followed by a rowing canoe ride along the Tapiche River where we will see várzea and igapo areas and encounter birds such as heron, egret, kingfisher, black birds, and seed eaters. Return for lunch. Spend the afternoon looking for humming birds, wood creepers, woodpeckers, antbirds, and tanagers in the flooded forest. Dinner.

Day 3. All day out. Early start by canoe to the springs of the Quebrada Chambira. Breakfast and lunch will be picnic style as we will be all day out. The expedition continues to the highland part of the Reserve - terra firma during dry season. Antbirds, shrikes, and wren will be the target. We will also be looking for other wildlife as there is a great concentration of mammals in the area including the rare Red Head Huakari Monkey and the Grey Spider Monkey. Also learn about medicinal plants growing in the wild along with their preparation and use. Return at sunset. Dinner.

Day 4. Another early day as we cross the Tapiche River for exploration of the Aguaje area. Breakfast and lunch will be picnic style as we will be out all day. From here we continue with canoes exploring the cochas; and as a highlight, we may have the opportunity to view the prehistoric bird the Hoazin, in addition to canopy foraging birds. Return for dinner. Spend the evening owling.

Day 5. Guided return to Iquitos or onward travel. If desired, visit a local village.

Age range, type of group

Recommended for those who enjoy rustic conditions of the outdoors and wish to venture deep into the jungle. No age restrictions, but probably not the best for small children and non-swimmers.
