    Amazone tour day 3

    October 16, 2018 in Peru ⋅ ☁️ 23 °C

    We leave very early and continue our journey downriver to go into the Reserve Zone on the Manu River, this zone is protected and tourism is strictly controlled.
    We are very lucky to see indigenous people who has been discovered just four years ago, these bush people haven't been in contact with the modern civilization. They live naked in the Amazon and hunt for their food.
    We see a big black caiman laying on the shore, capybaras rolling in the mud, monkeys and lots of birds. We get out of the boat to do a walk in the bush with our guide Moisés, he explains us about the termites and let us taste one.
    We take the catamaran on the lake and see piranhas!
