Journey Experts

Accompanying each journey is a diverse team of experts–from naturalists to regional specialists — who will share their knowledge and insights on the wildlife, landscapes and local culture.

Tropical Tree Climbing is Wildlife Conservation Society Partner

Working in alliance with the Wildlife Conservation Society, Tropical Tree Climbing also aims to leave behind a positive legacy, from supporting conservation projects in the Amazon – such as jaguar population monitoring and ecological research – to joining an international effort to safeguard the third largest cat in the world, by exploring, surveying, and establishing jungle protected areas. Our Amazon Birdwatching tour includes a direct donation of 5% to the Tropical Tree Climbing scientific research program.

Afternoon Experience

On this half-day excursion, after refreshing in the waterfall in the morning on the third day of our 4, 5 or 6-day journey, lunch is included at Presidente Figueiredo, an atmospheric local restaurant specializing in Amazonian fish. We travel on a 15-min drive from the waterfall into the Cock-of-the-Rock Municipal Park in the small town of Presidente Figueiredo to learn about one of the world’s most exciting birds of the Amazon—the Guianan Cock-of-the-Rock (Rupicola rupicola). Accompanied by an expert local guide using playback equipment, we’ll track the bird in their native habitat on an interpretive walk in the rain forest. We return to the Tropical Tree Climbing Lodge in plenty of time at a welcome dinner with our journey leader this evening.
