The photographer is a special breed of traveler. Enticed by objects and scenery that others may overlook, travel photographers search for that special place where they can find one amazing sight after another. The Peruvian Amazon is that special place. Be accompanied by a professional photographer eager to show you how to get pro shots in workshops that will teach you how to use our top quality equipment, and in the jungle for hands on instruction.

This 7 day / 6 night trip allows the photographer to visit all three of our jungle lodges located along the Tambopata river in Madre de Dios, Peru including the Tambopata Research Center. You also get the chance to photograph Macaws and Parrots as congregate at the worlds largest clay lick.

HIGHLIGHTS

Macaw Clay Lick

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 hundred 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. If the river is not swollen, thereby reducing the effective beach area, photographers should have plenty of opportunities to shoot the typical clay lick photographs from distances of 50-100 meters.

30 Meter Look-out Tower

A thirty minute walk through the jungle takes us to this 30 meter tall tower, which will add a whole new dimension to our Amazon birding experience: the forest canopy. We will wait for a canopy mixed flock to appear.

The mixed flock is mostly all about tanagers:
  • Paradise Tanager
  • Green-and-gold Tanager
  • Flame-crested Tanager
  • Turqoise Tanager
  • Opal- rumped
  • Tanager
  • and others

The tower also offers good opportunity for:
  • Cream-colored Woodpecker
  • Gilded Barbet
  • Plum-throated Cotinga
  • Striolated Puffbird.

Macaws and toucans are seen flying against the horizon, including:
  • Chestnut-eared
  • Lettered
  • Emerald
  • Curl-crested
  • Brown-mandibled Aracaries

We will see lonely raptors riding the thermals. This is your best chance for hawk-eagles and maybe even harpy!

Tres Chimbadas Ox Bow Lake

Tres Chimbadas is thirty minutes by boat and forty five minutes hiking from our Posada Amazonas lodge. Once there we will explore the lake in a catamaran. We will have the chance to see:
  • The resident family of nine giant river otters (seen by 60% of our lake visitors)
  • Caiman
  • Hoatzin birds
  • Horned screamers

Night Photography

Our night walks are great for photographing insects and frogs. We may be able to find:
  • Leaf mimicking grasshoppers
  • Shiny green tree frogs
  • Bizarre horned frogs
  • Praying mantis
  • Huge toads
  • Tarantula
  • Scorpion spiders
  • Cicadas

MiniPhotoWorkshops:

Photo review sessions are held and images are constructively complemented and critiqued so that each traveler takes home the best shots possible. At the end of your tour, your instructor will show you how to use Photoshop and bookmaking software to create and print your very own coffee table book filled with the photographs that you took during the tour.

Highlights include:
  • Learn how science, nature and technology are combined to make art
  • Professional photography equipment included
