Activities at our rainforest eco-lodge

25 November 2022 (112 visits)

All the activities described in our ecotourism and ecoadventure packages are included during our guests’ stay. Each day, our guests go out by boat and on foot, in the company of their naturalist guide, to explore the rivers, lakes and forests of Tambopata, in southeastern Peru. We offer activities in the mornings and afternoons, as well as the opportunity to venture into the forest or onto the river after dark. In addition, for those guests who want to get deeper into the Amazon basin, we offer special ecoadventure itineraries that include one or two nights at our riverside campsite.


Among the attractions that have made Tambopata National Reserve famous are the clay licks believed to be the largest found anywhere in the Amazon basin. Each morning, hundreds of macaws, parrots and parakeets gather to lick the clay contained in steep riverbanks, in order to ingest the minerals that they need to regulate their digestion, and also to socialize and look for a new partner! The colors and sounds produced by this mass gathering make it one of the most dramatic spectacles found anywhere in the forests of South America.


The birds gather in a carefully observed ritual. After perching in the surrounding trees, they begin to descend upon the riverbank. Small parrots feed at the lick first, followed by the larger parrots and macaws. Your naturalist guide will help you to identify the many different species, and if you have binoculars or a telephoto lens, from our hiding place you’ll be able to fully appreciate and photograph their bright plumage.


As many as eight monkey species live in the forests surrounding our Tambopata Ecolodge. Many of our guests will have seen monkeys in their local zoo, but nothing compares to seeing troops of monkeys in their natural habitat. During the trail walks we offer as part of our packages, our guests can venture into the forest and look out for monkeys in the understory and canopy of the rainforest. Guests are sure to see troops of curious squirrel monkeys, and they’ll also have a great chance of seeing other species, including capuchin monkeys, tamarin monkeys, spider monkeys, and even howler monkeys or even the particularly elusive night monkey, the world’s only nocturnal primate!


On our trail walks and boat excursions, it is possible to see and observe rainforest fauna both large and small, from caimans to tiny hummingbirds and even tinier insects. While visitors to Tambopata will be hoping to spot a member of the area’s increasingly healthy jaguar population, all our guests find it rewarding to follow their guide’s expert gaze and focus on the many miniature worlds that are contained within the tropical forests we help to protect through our ecotourism based conservation model.

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.
