The rainforest of the amazon jungle has the largest number of species of fauna in the world. Peru has created reserves and national parks to protect these areas and provide places for scientists to study the plants and animals of the rainforest and persons interested in travel in the jungle 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 have lived in the rainforest jungle all their lives and 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 area 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 in the Pacaya-Samiria Reserve are: sloth, ocelot, jaguar, tapir, fresh water dolphins and hundreds of varieties of birds. One of the best attractions of the reserve is the different species of monkeys such as: howler, saddleback tamarin, capuchin, squirrel and spider monkeys. Los Chancas Expeditions offers the visitor the opportunity to visit this area of the Peruvian amazon by native dugout canoe accompanied by English speaking guide with the option of a professional biologist expert in amazon rainforest fauna.
