Macaw clay lick

One of the most spectacular sights in the Amazon is just a fascinating three-hour boat ride from Tambopata Ecolodge. Here hundreds of parrots and macaws from at least 10 species come together every day to feed, creating a spectacle of color and sound like no other in the natural world.  Biologists have found that some macaws fly over 100 kilometers to feed on the mineral deposits essential to their diet. (Read more about avian clay licks here).

 

Forest trails

Frequently seen fauna on the trails of the Tambopata National Reserve close to the Ecolodge includes saddle-back tamarinds, brown capuchins, agoutis, blue-morpho butterflies, trogons, toucans and many other bird species. We will also venture into the forest at night, in search of nocturnal rainforest species.

 

Nocturnal fauna

From the Ecolodge, in the evenings we can explore part of our 25 kilometer trail system and the Tambopata River in search of caiman and the other nocturnal rainforest species that fill the night air with their sounds.

 

Lake Condenado

A fascinating forest trail leads to Lake Condenado, which we can explore by canoe. Swathed in rich tropical vegetation, forest wetlands are the best places for bird watching and the observation of other aquatic and terrestrial fauna.

 

Lake Sachavacayoc

Hiking deep into the forest we will visit the wetland system around Lake Sachavacayoc. The forests around this beautiful lake teem with birdlife, and the waters are home to black caiman and giant river otters. Back at the Ecolodge in the afternoon, you will have plenty of time to relax in a hammock or explore our clearly marked trail system independently.

 

Mammal and bird clay lick

Surrounded by typical rainforest flora, this clay lick is visited by parakeets, monkeys, deer, tapirs and peccaries, and the colors and sounds of different species of parrots and macaws make this an especially dramatic spectacle.

 

Ecolodge and nearby attractions

In their free time, guests can choose from a number of options, including:

What your rainforest visit means

In Peru ecotourism has helped make it possible to create national reserves and save the forests of the Amazon basin from destruction. By implementing our ecotourism-based conservation model (see our video), we are ensuring the forests will be around for future generations to appreciate. Pioneering projects like Tambopata Ecolodge, which was established in 1991, serve as a conservation model, by showing how responsible ecotourism can support conservation initiatives.
