I have just come back from the Tapiche reserve. What an amazing experience. Its a days trip to the reserve. Via motortaxi, minibus, fast boat then small boat with an outboard motor for the final leg. This you may think is a lot of travelling but boy is it worth it. You are in the jungle proper no small trip away from iquitos. Our guide was Hector an ex hunter turned guide using his hunting skills to find the animals and his jungle knowledge to find fresh water and some tasty some not so tasty fruits in the jungle.
A day consists of moving through the jungle by canoe and/or foot. Occasionaly wading in water over your welly boots (supplied) surprisingly refreshing. Now the important thing animals. We saw monkeys, sloth, caymen, giant frogs, snakes, bats and too many birds and insects to mention. I really think this is down to the fact you are deep in the jungle on a reserve where hunting isnt allowed.
Im travelling for a year around south america and this will definetly be a highlight!
Tip - bring sun cream, insect repellent a hat, waterproof coat and two changes of clothes one for the jungle and the other dry for the lodge.
