We did a pampas tour with flecha tours Touroffice: they said be at the office at 8, we left at 930 and picked up others at the hostel. The guy with the piercing in his Chin is one of the worst office guys unfriendly and over-confident, he forgot a stamp when we where at a crossing point (15 minutes away... More

The Pampas Tour with Indigena was amazing. The tour guide Domingo spoke great english, was very knowledgable and a good laugh. The Lodge was comfortable, food was great and you get to see a huge variety of unique wildlife. Would thoroughly recommend to everyone considering a pampas tour.

We enjoy a boat ride in the middle of the greatest diversity of animals in South America, a few meters (or cms. From you) from them. We took a boat and the guide we could enjoy with the whole family to be very close to alligators, caimans, river turtles, capybaras, dozens of birds, pink dolphins, snakes and an incredible amount...

We did the pampas tour with Indigena tours. We loved it. Our guide, Domingo, was amazing. He did such a good job at keeping us happy and showing and telling us everything. The lodge was good. Beds were clean and comfy and the mosquito nets worked. The staff were always friendly. The food was always good! There were lots of... More

This July I had a great Pampas tour of River Yacuma, Flecha lodge. I loved being on the boat and watching the beautiful sceneries and animals, especially during sunrise and sunset. Our guide Toto was very friendly, pleasant, organised, very knowledgeable, a good animal spotter, and environmentally-friendly. After visiting similar places in other parts of the world, I was not...

Had a great trip to the pampas. We couldn't really feel the difference between this company or any of the others while on the tour. They really highlight their eco friendliness, but it didn't really seem to be any different from the other companies. Our guide was very pleasant and a good animal spotter. He took us on an extra...

Besides most animals and birds mentioned in other reviews, I was fortunate to also see a Rhea which is similar to an ostrich but a native of South America. Look out for one or ask your guide to show you one. Norman of Madidi Tours used his keen hearing and spotting to find one for me. I have done another... More

If you can only do the jungle OR the pampas tour, I'd say go with the Pampas if you want to see a lot of animals and go with the jungle tour if you want to learn about plants, but be prepared to not see any animals in the jungle. We only saw a snake in the jungle in 3... More

My boyfriend and I did a 3-day tour to the Yacuma Pampas in early June and loved it. The amount of animals we saw there was incredible, e.g. yellow squirrel monkeys, red howler monkeys, kingfishers, capybaras, sloths, a porcupine, hoatzins, caimans, piranhas, not to even mention the pink river dolphins. The latter were the reason we decided for going to... More
