At Tambopata Ecolodge, through our ecotourism based conservation model we conserve and protect our own Private Conservation Area, as well as inviting travelers from all over the world to our eco-lodge to enjoy the many wonders of the adjacent Tambopata National Reserve. Out of respect for the natural environment we help to protect, we do not offer fishing activities or adventure activities such as zip lining or kayaking. We want our guests to come and appreciate nature in untouched forests, where Amazon fauna and flora can live undisturbed and in complete safety.
One of the most spectacular sights in the Amazon basin 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 working in the Tambopata area have found that some macaws fly over 100 kilometers to feed on these mineral deposits essential to their diet.
Frequently seen fauna on the trails of the Tambopata National Reserve close to our eco-lodge includes saddle-back tamarinds, brown capuchins, agoutis, blue-morpho butterflies, trogons, toucans and many other bird species. We also invite our guests to venture into the forest at night, in search of nocturnal rainforest species. From the Ecolodge, in the evenings we take guests to explore part of our 37-kilometer trail system and the Tambopata River in search of caiman and the other nocturnal animals that fill the night air with their sounds.
A fascinating forest trail leads to Lake Condenado, which we invite our guests to explore by canoe. Swathed in rich tropical vegetation, forest wetlands are the best places for birdwatching and the observation of other aquatic and terrestrial fauna. 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, guests will have plenty of time to relax in a hammock or explore our clearly marked trail system independently.
In their free time, our guests can choose from a number of options, including:
