Rurrenabaque- Serere Ecological Reserve
At about 9am we will go from the Andes foothills to the Floodplain forest on the edge of the Amazon basin. Along this journey we will see the last Bolivian nomads and evidence of mining and extraction of fine woods from these incredible biodiverse forest. You may also see animals from the region, such as capybara, lizards, turtles, sloths and a big variety of birds. Then, you will hike for 2 hours until you get to the cabins learning about the forest and finding interesting insects, vegetation and wildlife. We will meet in Casa Grande (main lodge) to have a briefing of the lodge and the trip, where we will also see some of the rescued animals, now in re-insertion process like Squirrel Monkeys, Capybara, Tapir and others.
Enjoy the sunset from San Fernando pier and observe the birds returning to their nests with the sounds of the jungle. After dinner, we will have a tour around the lodge to spot different insects, amphibians and more nocturnal animals. Dinner in comfortable wooden cabins with private bathrooms at Casa Grande Lodge.
