3rd day.- We‘ll be during the whole morning on the raft. We may stop at the last point of civilization to buy some extra supplies and you can also have your last cold beers. Being on the raft is just a “ONCE IN A LIFE EXPERIENCE” The river gets wider and in the dry season we will be able to see lots of gold diggers working on the river banks. While we are on the Jungle Raft calm is just impressive, suddenly silence is broken by
bird calls, incredibly, birds seem everywhere when, minutes ago, there were none to be found. Then we will spend some more hours on the raft even in the dark if needed in order to get as far as possible down river.
During the afternoon we will visit a farm to try some fruits straight from the tree.
Camp out by the beach. (Time on the Raft: approx 7 hrs)
4th day.- It is on this day when we will get to the point where Kaka River and La Paz River join to form Beni River From this point to the end of Beni River we have 1200km but if we include all the meanders it is about 1500 km. We will sail around 150 k of this great Beni River. We will stop for lunch and for a walk in the Madidi Jungle for about 3 hours to then continue to the next camp site.
Night walk after dinner for you to feel the Jungle in the dark. (time on the raft 5-6 hrs)
5th day.-This day is mostly for navigating downstream and we will have many chances to jump in the water. On
both sides of the River there are protected areas and the Jungle you will see is pristine. Clay cliffs where Macaws are frequently seen will be there not disturbed by any noise. (time on the Raft: approx 8 hrs)
6th day.-Morning mostly for navigating downstream. However if we didn’t get too far on this day we might be
pulled by a motorised canoe in order to get to our destination. Around midday we get to the starting point of the amazing Canopy Zip Line to experience the Rainforest at the level of the tree tops. Just overwhelming! After about an hour walking we will start crossing the Jungle, this time like free birds enjoying the green. Arrive in Rurre 3 to 6 p.m. (Time on the raft: approx 4-5 hrs)
