Today we headed out to the jungle early. We were headed to a lake to hopefully see a family of giant otters - an endangered species. We were given gumbooots for the walk as the tracks are often very muddy and hard to walk through. Once at the lake we took a canoe around to see the otters and then explored around the edge of the lake to see more wildlife. After the canoe ride we headed back to the lodge stopping to climb a 40m tower to get a view over the tree tops.
Exhausted after 5 hours stomping through muddy tracks we got to relax in hammocks at the lodge and 'enjoy' the 35° humid heat.
Later on they loaded us back into the boat in the dark for some Cayman (amazon crocodile) hunting.Read more
