Plunge deep into the country's massive tracts of hypnotic jungle. In the pristine wilderness of the Tambopata National Reserve, stay at a charming lodge, raft rapids and hike through the pre-dawn clamour to the world's largest clay lick to spy on hundreds of feasting macaws and parrots. Or cruise through the great rivers in the utmost of luxury aboard an all inclusive houseboat, and, in between snoozes in comfy cabins, watch monkeys dance overhead and pink dolphins skim the water's surface. In the Pacaya Samiria National Reserve visit an indigenous community or take a nighttime canoe ride in search of the reptilian caimans.
