After a short rest, our guide will take you on a deep jungle walk of 3 hours. He will explain everything there is to know about the Cuyabeno. This interesting information will give you new insights about living in the jungle. After this wonderful walk, we will return to Waita lodge to enjoy a nice lunch.

In the afternoon at 4:30 pm, we will again take our rowing canoe to the forest flooded by black water. This is a unique place to see microscopic animals and many species of birds. We will then row to a narrow white water river where we can observe birds that can’t be found on the big rivers of the Cuyabeno. When the night begins to fall, we will head back to Waita lodge. However, on our venture downstream, we will take the opportunity to search for caimans and other nocturnal animals such as fishing bats, tree boas, and birds.
