A visit to one of the region's many clay licks is one of the most eagerly anticipated activities for visitors to this part of the Ecuadorian Amazon. Given the sheer size and scale of the rainforest, animal sightings can sometimes be a challenge. That does not apply to the clay licks however, where flocks of brightly-coloured macaws, parrots and parakeets descend to feed on the soil, extracting vital minerals to help them digest the fruit and seeds found in the jungle. A clay lick can be accessed from all of our lodges in this part of the Amazon basin. At some, sightings have also been reported of tapirs, ocelots, owls and others animals.
