Here with the help of locals we construct a sturdy raft and set off down the Rio Tuichi where we spend ten days floating through the Bolivian Amazon. The Rio Tuichi is the most exciting river in Bolivia as there are no other white water rivers this size and in such a remote location in the country. During this exciting adventure we will make excursions into the pristine forests to see the impressive trees and flowers as well as try to spot wild life such as jaguars, giant anteaters and anacondas. This style of raft is not your typical inflatable raft. It is a sturdy raft made out of truck tubes. Normally 8 to 10 tubes per raft, depending on the size of the group. They are held together with slender tree trunks which are tied together with rope, which is called a ‘balsa de goma’. Equipment is tied to the raft and the luggage is used as sits. A class 4 white water is no problem for this style of raft. This style was first used by the local people living in the Amazon. It was original used to transport wood cut down in the forest. Another style of raft used to float down the river is the balsa log raft. This is a more traditional style but much slower as some of the larger rapids cannot be rafted because of large rocks in the river.
