Escape to Bolivia's remote Amazon rainforest, exploring by canoe and on foot by day and night as you immerse yourself in the beauty of nature.
It takes time to reach the Bolivian Amazon in the north-east of the country but it’s well worth the effort. Over the course of your journey by plane, boat and on foot, you gain an impression of the remoteness of the Amazon and a sense that you are entering a very special world which it is your privilege to explore.
- Madidi magic: The Bolivian Amazon encompasses floodplains, mountains and cloud forest as well as rainforest and a wide range of animal and birdlife including capybaras, tapirs, several species of monkey, caimans, parrots, macaws and toucans. If you’re lucky you may spot a jaguar too. Madidi National Park is at the heart of this world, a jungle paradise to be explored.
- Water and land: Take to the water by boat or canoe to experience the sights and sounds of the forest, watching caiman, giant river otters and turtles in the water and monkeys and birds in the trees. Guided walks allow you to identify different plants and learn about their roles in the ecosystem as well as look for wildlife. Longer treks take you deeper into the forest and explore different habitats.
- In the dark: The jungle at night is especially magical. Set out by canoe gliding noiselessly as you look out for the glint of caimans’ eyes just above the waterline. An after-dinner walk introduces you to nocturnal creatures including amphibians, reptiles, insects and birds.
