Description

At the edge of the Amazon Basin on Bolivian territory you will find the endless jungle and pampas department of Beni. From here expands a wide and rich system of rivers, lakes and primary forest which Bolivia shares with Brazil in the north. Reaching the small town of Trinidad, capital of the Beni department, we will be welcomed by the heat of the tropical and humid climate, as well as by the exuberant vegetation of the evergreen tropical forest. Arriving at the riverside of the majestic Mamore River, a purely unique experience will wait for us: On a riverboat downstream to the Amazon, along the biggest tributary of the Amazon on Bolivian territory, following its meanders and passing confluences of small rivers, indigenous settlements on the river banks, and secret places where we will meet the gorgeous pink sweet water dolpin: Bufeo or Inia boliviensis, playing in the shallow waters and accompanying our boat for while. Within this remote and unspoiled natural paradise the riverboat combines at the same time expeditions and animal watching by canoe, on a horseback or on foot, with all comfort of western civilization: Imagine having a warm shower and a comfy mattress after a long and exhausting jungle walk. Or enjoying an ice cold beer sitting on the terrace of the boat in the upper level having the most extensive botanical garden of our planet just in front of you – the Bolivian Amazonia.
