Feb 05, 2018 - Delfin II
Today, we started our expedition in the magnificent Upper Amazon in Peru with high spirits and expectations. Early in the morning we went for a short but amazing skiff ride on a small creek known locally as Pahuachiro Caño. We saw a lot! Many bird species and some monkeys as well. Right after breakfast we went for a hike in an area known as Casual. Prepared with rubber boots and with the company of our naturalists, plus three local native scouts from the community, we explored a “terra firme” rainforest trail. This outing was an introduction to the Neo tropical rainforests. We observed several frog species, a Goliath tarantula and several insect species as well. The icing on the cake of this morning´s outing was the spotting of a beautiful snake species, a juvenile green anaconda.
In the afternoon, after lunch, we explored the Yanayacu River by skiffs. In this area, several bird species and some three-toed sloths were spotted. The early and late hours of the day are the best ones for spotting creatures of the rainforest.
Late in the afternoon with the company of a spectacular sunset, we came back onboard with unforgettable memories of our first full day of our expedition in the Peruvian Upper Amazon aboard our home during this week’s expedition, Delfin II.
