One of the best places in South America to see wildlife

16 February 2024 (322 visits)

Situated in the Amazon rainforests of southeastern Peru, our jungle eco-lodge is one of the best places in South America to see wildlife. While many species of animals are threatened with near extinction in other parts of South America, in the rainforests surrounding our Tambopata Ecolodge they are protected.


Travelers who visit Peru and come to stay in the jungle with us at our comfortable eco-lodge home can hope to see animals including tapirs, white-lipped peccaries, caimans, anacondas, giant river otters, giant anteaters, giant armadillos, yellow-spotted side-necked turtles, marsh deer, and even the Amazon’s apex predator, the jaguar, the population of which has actually increased in recent years.


The forests we help to protect are also home to eight monkey species, and they are so abundant it’s almost impossible not to see and hear monkeys in the rainforest canopy, including the trees that shade our eco-lodge buildings.


The protected ecosystems surrounding our remote jungle lodge are composed of more than 10,000 plant species, which our naturalist guides help our guests to identify, and to understand better. In the forests, wetlands and rivers of Tambopata, scientific research projects have identified almost 170 mammal species, and more than 650 bird species. And Tambopata is home to at least 1200 species of butterflies, while its waterways are inhabited by more than 200 species of fish.  


Back in 1991, we built our eco-lodge in an area of rainforest that is now the edge of the biodiverse Tambopata National Reserve, where we operate the ecotourism itineraries we offer to our guests. And today, more than 30 years later, we continue to work to conserve and protect the Amazon forests for which we are responsible, through our ecotourism-funded conservation activities. This means that when you visit Peru and come to stay in the jungle with us, you are helping to conserve the Amazon basin for future generations of visitors.

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.
