From our remote location in the heart of southeastern Peru’s Amazon forests, we want to share our love and respect for nature with travelers from all over the world. That is why we created our eco-lodge and the Private Conservation Area that the Peruvian government has authorized us to manage on behalf of all those who love the natural world.
Since 1991, we have been working to conserve this part of the Peruvian Amazon, and we are proud to be recognized by the Peruvian state as the guardians of the Tambopata Ecolodge Private Conservation Area, the largest protected natural area in its category in Peru, and of the other Conservation Concessions that we have been granted.
While they come to have a great time and to experience one of the most biologically diverse places on Earth, by helping to support us in our ecotourism-based conservation initiative, the visitors who come to stay with us at our jungle lodge are also contributing to the conservation of endangered species and threatened ecosystems.
Out of respect for the natural environment we help to protect, we don’t 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 harmony and safety.
But that doesn’t mean that our ecotourism packages are not exciting! After all, what could be more thrilling than seeing the most iconic and representative species of the Amazon basin’s flora and fauna, thriving in peace thanks to their protected status in the forests where we share the responsibility for their conservation?
The forests of Tambopata where we live and work are home to more than 650 species of birds, helping to make Peru one of the world’s best destinations for birdwatchers. Dominated by rivers, lakes and wetlands, our ecosystems are also a refuge for 1200 butterfly species, 103 amphibians, 180 kinds of fish, 103 reptiles and 169 mammals. Pumas, ocelots and jaguars hunt in our forests, and high in the rainforest canopy several species of monkeys live out their lives, often without ever setting foot on the forest floor where we take our guests on professionally guided trail walks.
Other big mammal species found with the Tambopata National Reserve include the South American tapir, white-lipped peccary, red brocket deer and gray deer, as well as both two-toed and three-toed sloths.
Together with our area’s world-famous macaw clay licks, these and countless other species of trees, plants, insects and animals make the forests that flank the Tambopata River, where our comfortable eco-lodge is located, among the very best places in South America for true ecotourism, through the observation, photographing and simple appreciation of an incredible variety of life forms.
