Located along with Napo River, this is one of the most accessible licks in the Amazon. Hundreds of parrots visit this lick each day. This is a very popular stop for guests of Sacha Lodge

Parrots use the clay to help with digestion of different toxins found in the nuts/fruits they eat. In other words, these birds of discovered nature's solution to tummy troubles!
