Pampas Caracoles eco lodge, group tour or private tour

You will leave at nine o'clock in 4x4 Jeep on dirt roads via Reyes until you reach Santa Rosa del Yacuma. Here you will change the car for a boat to sail on the River Yacuma to the Caracoles Lodge. Here you will have lunch and a short rest.
In the afternoon you will sail the river and go to the Pampas to see the wildlife. The animals are quite easy to find and to photograph.
The best season to visit the Pampas is in the dry season when many capybaras, turtles, black caiman and maybe an anaconda are warming up in the sun or are hunting.
You will see the river dolphin, the black caiman, monkeys and many bird species. You will enjoy your dinner at the lodge and in the evening you can listen to the sounds of the pampas by night.

Directly after breakfast on the second day you will go hiking for three to four hours through wetlands to search for the giant anaconda.
The guide can also point out the white and black caiman.
Lunch will be at the lodge again and in the afternoon you will go for a boat ride on the River Yacuma to search for piranhas and to swim with river dolphins.
In the evening you go out by boat again to spot the glistering eyes of the caiman. You might see some night birds as well.

On the third day after breakfast there is another boat ride waiting for you. This time you will see squirrel monkeys in big groups running through the trees. The pampas are also the habitat of the brown and the black howler monkeys.
After lunch you will go back to Santa Rosa by boat.
There a 4x4 Jeep is waiting to take you to Rurrenabaque where you will arrive late afternoon.
