Macaw Clay Lick Chuncho Tambopata: On most clear mornings of the year dozens of large macaws and hundreds of parrots congregate on this large river bank in a raucous and colorful spectacle which inspired a National Geographic cover story. Discretely located fifty meters from the cliff, we will observe Green-winged, Scarlet and Blue-and-gold Macaws and several species of smaller parrots descend to ingest clay. Outings are at dawn when the lick is most active.

Macaw Clay Lick Chuncho Tambopata. This tour combines three classic reserves on the Rio Tambopata—Tambopata Research Center (TRC), Posada Amazonas (APA), and Refugio Amazonas (ARA). These complementary sites include trails through a wilderness rainforest rich in monkeys and terra firme birds; the spectacular Tambopata Ccollpa de Guacamayos, or macaw clay lick; a canopy tower in Ese’eja Indian territory from which we have seen both Crested and Harpy eagles; a wonderful Hoatzin-lined oxbow lake (cocha) complete with Giant Otters and reached by a trail through rich bamboo; a boardwalk through a palm swamp with Point-tailed Palmcreepers. Together with our experienced guide, these areas will produce an astonishing variety of lowland Neotropical birds and mammals. Macaw Clay Lick Chuncho Tambopata.
