Location
Accessible only by waterway, the 1540 hectare Reserve is situated 404 km up river from Iquitos, Peru. The day long journey into the jungle takes you through increasingly remote areas, away from touristic centers, and into territory seldom traveled by outsiders. The trip from Iquitos to the Reserve includes navigating up the Amazon, Ucayali, and Tapiche Rivers

Typical Day


 - Tapiche Reserve Real Jungle Experience
Day 1. The journey to the reserve begins early in the morning, traveling 3 hours up past the Amazon River to the Ucayali River, arriving in Requena for lunch. Then we navigate up the Tapiche River for another 4 hours. The Tapiche is a narrow river with a unique landscape, giving us the chance to observe wildlife on the river side, such as herons, several species of toucans, macaws, egrets, wild ducks, storks, grey dolphins (Sotalia fluviatilis) and pink dolphins (Inia geoffrensis). Click to learn more about location.

Day 2. Light breakfast at 05:00, then embark on a 10km trek through the terra fime forest deep into the Reserve, where we will marvel at gigantic centenary huimba (Ceiba pentandra) trees. We may encounter South American coati (Nasua nasua), saddleback tamarin (saguinusfuscicollis), common squirrel monkeys (saimiri sciureus sciureus), and other land mammals. Second breakfast will be picnic style around 09:00, providing the fuel we will need to complete the trek and return to the lodge for hot lunch around 13:00.

After our long morning hike, you can relax in a canoe that your guide will row silently along the edge of the jungle, looking for animals that come to the water to catch the warmth of the last sunlight. Return to lodge for hot dinner.

Day 3. Light breakfast at 5am followed by a 12 km trek along the Chambira creek, where the giant otters (Pteroneura brasiliensis) make their home during the dry season. The hike will take us deep into a different side of the Reserve through an amazing ciliar forest. Second breakfast will again be picnic style. There is a great concentration of mammals in the area, including the rare red uakari monkey (Cacajao calvus rubicundus) and red howler monkeys (Alouatta seniculus). Along the way, we will also discuss medicinal plants growing in the wild and learn about their preparation and use. Return for hot lunch at the lodge around 1pm.

In the afternoon we will take the canoe again along the Tapiche River to what we call "dolphin corner", a spot where the pink dolphins (Inia geoffrensis) and gray dolphins (Sotalia fluviatilis) come every afternoon to hunt. Return to the lodge for hot dinner.

Day 4. All day out. Light breakfast at 05:00. We will travel by canoe along stunning primary Gallery forest to arrive at the Garza Lagoon. Second breakfast is picnic style. On the Lagoon it is possible to observe the great black caiman (Melanosuchus niger) in broad daylight. We will fish for our lunch, which is often red-bellied piranha (Pygocentrus nattereri) grilled fresh over an open fire. After enjoying views of the expansive lagoon with lunch, we will continue canoeing into the swampy areas of the reserve, which is the territory of more black caiman, dusky titis (Callicebus moloch), large groups of red howler monkeys, and all kinds of eye-catching jungle birds. Return at sunset for hot dinner at the lodge.

Day 5. Full breakfast at the lodge. Guided return to Iquitos.

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.

Sleeping and meals


Upon your arrival to Iquitos, we will pick you up at the airport and take you to the Green Track Hostel for the first night. Hostel accommodation is free for those traveling to Tapiche Reserve (breakfast included, free Wifi, cable tv, bunkbeds, private rooms, shared kitchen and bathrooms). A paid trip to the Reserve includes, transport, meals, lodging, and guided activities.

Policies & Restrictions


How we do it
Imagem
Our groups are maximum of 6 plus native and naturalist bilingual guide to maximize wild life viewing and reduce the environmental impact.

We design our sightseeing programs to cover several types of habitats within a short distance. Guided activities have been developed to allow you to see as much as possible during your visit. While experiencing ayahuasca is a popular touristic activity in the Peruvian Amazon, we do not perform ayahuasca ceremonies at the Reserve. Our goal is to share nature, wild life, and local knowledge of the jungle.

Other Information


The Reserve is located in primary rain forest, and it is our mission to coexist with the jungle environment without disturbing its natural processes. We have ongoing efforts to save a species of river turtle known locally as taricaya (Podocnemis unifilis), which can live to 60 years of age and plays a crucial part in the region's ecosystem. We have also been monitoring our populations of red uakari monkey (Cacajao calvus), which is nearly extinct in Peru due to hunting and the destruction of its habitat.

By choosing to visit the jungle with us, you are directly helping us maintain and protect these projects, the Reserve and the local people. Your presence on the trails and in the creeks shows local hunters and loggers that we are watching and patrolling the property. Your financial contribution pays for lodge and boat maintenance and the local people's salaries. Quite frankly, the area's (and Peru's, for that matter) conservation laws are few and weak. Those that do exist are not enforced, making them equal to non-existent. To add insult to injury, the government continues to pass laws that protect business interests over the environment, effectively turning the rainforest into a combination lumber yard and oil well. We don't get support from any other organization, government nor private, local nor international. You absolutely make a difference.
We'd like to highlight two main areas of concern with regards to conservation in our area: the illegal animal trade and the illegal logging trade. Both are booming business sectors that have been deeply entrenched in the local psyche and economy for years. Yet, like all businesses, they are driven by demand. And who is doing the demanding? Tourists, clients, customers, buyers...basically you. You can help change the landscape of the market simply by making conscious decisions about what you spend you spend your money on, regardless of whether you're buying experiences, food, souvenirs or furniture.
