Description:

OUTBACK WASHO’S TOURS & EXPEDITIONS!

Be different... Do a community tour with the locals
Situated in the Peruvian rainforest, in the Amazon basin in Iquitos, Loreto-Peru.
If you are looking for a local guide born and raised with the jungle then you found it!
Local guides are native to the area and trained to deliver high quality information and services.

They are dedicated, responsible people who will bring you the real experience of enjoying and learning about the amazon wilderness and its ways inside out.
Our commitment is to involve local communities with guiding and services, combine quality with the local culture, and to take you away from the beaten track with dynamic programs combining boating, canoeing, hiking, fishing, bird-watching and night excursions.
We also offer Camping out, custom expeditions, days trips…educative walks learning about the local natural history and ecology.
We dont recommend camping for those who are short on time, because with these expeditions one has to stop early afternoon to set up camp and prepare food and early in the morning prepare breakfast, pack up. Most activity in the jungle is early morning or late afternoon so all this takes several valuable minutes that one could be out observing and learning about the wildlife…

Enjoying regional food and hospitality and sleeping in a hammock and mosquito net might be one of the highlights of your amazon visit!
We invite you to know more of the rurals parts of the Peruvian Amazon basin, a real experience in the jungle and with its inhabitants, where you will see mountain ranges, indigenous villages and incredible biodiversity.
Many people from the west are coming for medicine too.
Ayahuasca is one of the traditional medicines of amazonian indian communities.
Those who take it become dizzy (without loss of consciousness), have visions, vomit, defecate, shiver, sweat or sometimes does not produce effects in participants.

Description

I have been on 3 excursions, each a week long, with Walter and every trip was an amazing adventure. We traveled throughout the Iquitos Amazon region by small motor boat and dugout canoe. We slept in the huts of villagers and in the jungle in hammocks with mosquito nets. We fished and ate fish we caught from the rivers and lakes. We saw amazing varieties of wildlife, learned about making medicine from jungle plants and participated in shaman ceremonies at night. Each trip was the experience of a lifetime.

Best bits: Real high-adventure travel experience
Worst bits: River transportation can sometimes be unreliable
