The rainforest of the Peruvian amazon has the largest number of species in the world. Peru has created reserves and national parks to protect these areas and provide places for scientists to study and persons interested in travel to visit. Among the reserves set aside for these purposes is the Pacaya-Samiria Nature Reserve. The Pacaya-Samiria Reserve is located in the jungles of northern Peru in the Department of Loreto. The Reserve is the largest in Peru and lies between the Marañon and Ucayali rivers. The Pacaya-Samiria Reserve can be reached from Tarapoto by a one hour flight in 8 passenger plane contracted specifically for our guests or for small groups we will hire a motorboat to travel from the city of Yurimaguas on the Huallaga river.

On arrival at the entrance to the Pacaya-Samiria Reserve you will be accompanied by one or more local guides who paddle the dugout native canoes, giving you the opportunity to observe the incredible quantity of wildlife. The guides know the Pacaya-Samiria reserve like the palm of their hand and can point out the numerous species of animals found there. The best time to visit the rainforest is during the dry season from June to October to see the greatest variety of mammals but the Pacaya-Samiria Reserve can be visited at any time of the year.

Among the species that can be found there are: several species of monkeys, sloth, ocelot, jaguar, tapir, fresh water dolphins and hundreds of varieties of birds. Los Chancas Expeditions offers the visitor the opportunity to visit this area by native dugout canoe accompanied by English speaking guide with the option of a professional biologist expert in the amazon rainforest.
