If you want to travel to the Amazon rainforest, visit the Amazon jungle, and see one of the best places to visit in South America, then the Tambopata forests, rivers and lakes we help to protect are perfect for you.
The biological diversity of the Amazon rainforest is unparalleled. This tropical rainforest covers around 40% of South America, stretching for more than 2.5 million square miles and spanning nine countries (Brazil, Peru, Colombia, Venezuela, Ecuador, Bolivia, Guyana, Suriname & French Guiana).
Recent years have seen some of the highest rates of exploitation and deforestation the Amazon rainforest has ever experienced. All of us who are responsible travelers and nature lovers understand that the forests of the Amazon are the “lungs of the Earth”, and that this earthly paradise is almost uniquely vulnerable to the worst effects of climate change and human intervention.
At Tambopata Ecolodge, we believe that ecotourism is one way to protect the magical beauty of the rainforest, and we have been working for more than thirty years to achieve that goal. The form of responsible travel that we have pioneered in Peru aims to conserve the environment, while seeking to benefit local communities and avert irreversible destruction, through education and improved standards of living.
So, if you are looking to travel to South America, and to see and experience one of the best protected and most accessible areas of rainforest in the world, we have the perfect destination for you: our rainforest eco-lodge home, private conservation area, and our vast neighbor, the Tambopata National Reserve. With us, you can enjoy, in comfort and safety, and in the company of your family or other loved ones, an Amazonian adventure that combines exploration, conservation and benefits for the local economy.
At Tambopata Ecolodge, we are located in protected, primary rainforest, close to Peru’s borders with Brazil and Bolivia, in a part of the Amazon uniquely accessible from Peru’s most famous and most visited tourist attractions: Cusco and Machu Picchu.
This means our guests can get to really experience the Amazon rainforest as part of their Peru vacation, in a 3- or 4-day stay at our jungle eco-lodge. And during their stay, they can experience the wildlife of the rainforest with one of our naturalist guides during the day, and enjoy the comforts and good food we offer at our lodge in their free time and in the evenings.
We offer a selection of tour options for eco-conscious travelers at affordable prices, and our jungle excursions are perfect for couples, families, groups of friends or colleagues, and for travelers of all ages, as long as they share our spirit of adventure and love and respect for the natural world!
