On the way you can see the changes in vegetation, from colonized and deforested areas to the virgin forest. Upon arrival you will have a welcome drink and you will meet the rest of the staff. In the afternoon an introductory walk to “mainland” will take place in the forest located behind the Tambopata Eco Lodge (Trail 2), dominated by the giant chestnut trees and the Chihuahuaco trees. The mammals that are seen more frequently in this trail are the pichico monkey or leoncillo and the brown capuchino or Mono Martín; besides agutis, pacas, morpho blue butterflies, trogons, toucans and many other species of birds. After dinner there will be a nocturnal walk, where you can find animals and nocturnal insects, which can be located by the brightness of their eyes when they are illuminated with a flashlight; approximately 50% of the animals in the jungle are nocturnal.
