Amazon Camping Trip with GreenTracks

A Camping Trip in the remote rainforest of Peru’s Pacaya Samiria National Reserve.

The GreenTracks camping program is a unique opportunity to experience the Amazon rainforest up close and personal. This program starts with 2 days at our rainforest lodge, 4 days camping while exploring the reserve, and 1 final night at the lodge.

On the way to the lodge by boat you will stop at a 100-foot tall observation tower to see the confluence of the two rivers that come together to form the Amazon River. From the lodge there will be excursions to a small tributary and surrounding lakes to view the flora and fauna as well as rainforest hikes. Weather permitting great sunsets can be observed from the high ground in front of the lodge.

For the camping portion of the trip - accompanied by an experienced GreenTracks’ guide - you will travel by boat to the Yanayacu-Pucate River and have a chance to observe gray and pink dolphins, aquatic birds, river turtles, sloths, monkeys, parrots and macaws. Members of the staff from the lodge will be along to set up camp, cook delicious meals and attend to your needs. During your stay in the Reserve you will take day and night jungle hikes, visit lakes and search for caiman. There will also be a visit to a riverside village for a chance to learn about the local inhabitants in the Pacaya Samiria National Reserve and appreciate their dependence upon the wildlife, plants and waters of the Reserve.

The activities on the camping portion of the trip can be tailored to suit the campers' interests... photography, birding, wildlife viewing, herpetology, fishing, ethnobotany, etc.


We received the following comments from recent travelers on our Amazon Camping Trip:

"We had the absolute best (Amazon Camping) trip in the jungle. I can't tell you how wonderful it was. Segundo was incredible, full of knowledge, life and kindness to us and all the Peruvians. We knew the guide was the key to a good trip, and were so happy to have someone that fantastic. And everything else about the trip was wonderful. It was organized down to the smallest detail. We can't wait to come back to Peru and come back for another trip with you guys. And of course, if we have any friends coming to Peru, we will give them your details and explain how they would never find something better." Janan Markee
