Pacaya-Samiria Reserve

Nov 13, 2019 - Delfin II


Today we continued along the Ucayali River and reached the farthest upstream point of our trip, the Pacaya River. We departed early in the morning to observe wildlife as the sun rose above the forest. We saw hundreds of birds, several kinds of monkeys and swam with pink river dolphins – all before lunch.

In the late afternoon we explored Dorado Forest. This is a flooded forest half of the year and only in the low water season is it revealed to us. We ventured into the forest with some drizzle and had great sightings.
