The Bolivian Amazon is actually better known as the Yungas.  This is where the Andean mountains meet the Amazon and steep low lying hills are covered in the jungle canopy. The main area of interest is the Madidi National Parklocated 4 hours by motorised canoe up the Beni River. Here you will find; caiman crocodile, anacondas, pink dolphins, capybaras, monkeys, giant ant-eaters, toucans, and many other bird species.

OUR FAVOURITE THINGS TO DO IN THE YUNGAS

BOAT TRIPS

Just getting to places like the Madidi National Park will involve lengthy boat rides. However, surrounding the lodges are small lakes ideal for boat trips.

BIRDING

Generally it is hard to spot birds in the dense rain forest, but the area has wide rivers as well as lakes which break the canopy, allowing you to see a lot more than usual.

WALKING

There are a number of paths throughout the region, some up steep slopes offering superb views over the canopy, others are proper jungle treks.
