    At the end of each day, our guides would make a clearing and pitch camp. This consisted of a mosquito net each(very necessary), Tarp for the roof and foam mattress with blanket to lie on for a bed. It was very humid and a sheet was often more than enough to sleep under.

    From Rurrenabaque you will be able to have a company tailor a trek according to your needs. There are many companies to choose from. The usual combination is 3 days in the jungle and 3 days in the Pampas. In the jungle there is a lot to learn about what is toxic and what is not. A guide is essential. I took a 6 day option and our guides took us literally off the path and we went bush bashing for 3 days and then built a raft and sailed out again. As you can see there are no tracks!

    The raft trip back down to the Rio Bene was a highlight. The peace and tranquility was welcome after the first long days of trekking. The raft wasn't all relaxation though as at various points, due to low water or rapids, we'd have to carry the raft.

    Piranha fishing is a piece of cake - or more accurately, a piece of raw meat. It's dead easy, but unfortunately they have too many bones to enjoy eating.

    There he is!
    We saw many camen during the trip, but according to our guides, we could swim where the pink fresh water dolphin were as they kept the place safe.

    Found this little fella in the middle of the jungle. Apparently tortoises live on the land whereas turtles live in the water.

    Our 3 days in the Pampas (long grass)started with an afternoon on the horses. We were lucky that the rains hadn't come yet, but this made finding the anaconda more difficult.

    Rurrenabaque is a very nice place for wild adventure tours. Don't forget to visit the Madidi National Park and Reserve. Also go for a exiting sail tour on the Yacuma river (near Sta Rosa).
