How to visit Tambopata National Reserve

15 May 2022 (101 visits)

Our neighbor, Tambopata National Reserve, where we operate our ecotourism activities, is located south of the Madre de Dios River in the Tambopata and Inambari districts of the Tambopata province, in Madre de Dios department, southeastern Peru. Easily accessible from Cusco or Lima, its combination of eight tropical forest ecosystems helps to make it one of the most biodiverse travel destinations on the planet.


Among the most visited locations within the Reserve are its rainforest lakes. For relaxing moments filled with peace and contact with nature, these beautiful lakes are hard to beat. And for those travelers hoping to see typical Amazon wildlife, lakes are among the best places in the forest to see a variety of aquatic and terrestrial fauna, including abundant birdlife.


Tambopata is particularly famous for its populations of parrots and macaws. Our forests are particularly attractive to these most colorful of bird species because we have something that parrots, macaws and many other Amazon basin animals need: we have clay licks, where rainforest creatures can find the minerals and salts they require as part of their diet.


As part of our ecoadventure activities, we offer our guests the chance to see these extraordinary clay licks, and to experience mass gatherings of parrots and macaws from several species, on excursions that also offer the chance to camp in the forest, fully immersed in nature!


In fact, at Tambopata Ecolodge we offer eco-travel programs designed to appeal to all types of travelers: specialized nature tourism, family experiences that both adults and children can enjoy, trail walks, river and lake boat trips, and rainforest camping. And in their free time, when they’re not out in the forest with one of our expert naturalist guides, our guests can enjoy the comforts of our eco-lodge. These include our spacious and airy cabin-style rooms, our high-roofed bar and lounge, and of course the excellent meals that we serve in our dining room, and which are included as part of the hospitality we offer our visitors.


The Reserve offers everything nature lovers and adventurers dream of experiencing as part of a Peru vacation. And at Tambopata Ecolodge we pride ourselves on ensuring that our guests enjoy a vacation that is both memorable and ecofriendly. Because travel to the Amazon with the right company means enjoying a spectacular experience, while contributing to keeping the Reserve sustainable and protected.

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.
