NOTE

Check. Birds, Plants – Monkeys and Macaws.
Check. Caimans -Jaguars- Good Luck.

Peru’s Wildlife jungle regions have some of the greatest recorded biodiversity and species of plants and animals on earth. However, you may be disappointed if you go expecting a daily episode of Wild Kingdom. An expedition to the rainforest is not like a safari to the African savanna. Many mammals are extremely difficult to see in the thick

jungle vegetation, and though the best tour operators employ guides skilled in ferreting them out, there are no guar- antees. Even in the most virgin sections, after devoting several patient days to the exercise, you are unlikely to see a huge number of mammals, especially the rare large species such as tapirs, jaguars, and giant river otters.

If you spot a single one of these prized mammals, your jungle expedition can be considered a roaring success. (Your best shot at seeing jaguars is in rainforest during the  months of May and June.) However, in both peruvian wildlife  you are very likely to see a wealth of jungle birds (including the region’s famous and fabulous macaws), several species of monkeys, black caimans, butterflies, and insects.
