Tambopata Wildlife

sunrise cruising

As mentioned in my last post, my camera’s zoom is pretty weak so most of the animals are just tiny dots in my pictures. But thanks to my tourmate Norbert and his fancy Sony zoom lens, I was able to use his Nat-Geo-worthy photos to add to the blog!

Not pictured but we also saw red howler monkeys, brown capuchin monkeys, woodpeckers, giant river otters, flying sardines, and we definitely heard lots of wild boars and a huge tapir bathing in the distance.
