More than ever before, travelers throughout the world are searching for ways to experience contact with nature, and the growing concern among people everywhere regarding conservation issues is not their only motive.
During the past two years, across the world millions of us experienced lockdown. Not only were we unable to travel, very often it became impossible to enjoy any contact at all with the natural world.
Now, as the world begins to emerge from such restrictions, travelers are looking for ways to get back into the great outdoors. And at Tambopata Ecolodge, that is exactly what we offer: just as we have done for more than 30 years, we want to share our love and respect for nature with those travelers from all over the world who choose to come and visit us!
In the two decades before the pandemic, the world saw rapid growth in ecotourism and nature-based travel. More and more people chose to venture into the planet’s remotest and wildest corners –places like our own Private Conservation Area- in search of a sense of contact with the natural world that they had lost in their own urban environments.
As a pioneering ecotourism-based conservation area, at Tambopata Ecolodge we have shown that the desire on the part of travelers to explore faraway places -rather than opting to lie on a beach somewhere for two weeks each year- can lead to tangible benefits in terms of nature conservation.
Ecotourism initiatives like our own have led to an exponential growth in the number and size of protected natural areas across the globe, particularly in developing countries like Peru, where –when correctly managed- a positive impact on the environment through nature tourism can also lead to positive impacts upon local and national economies.
With our 3-, 4- and 5-day fully escorted and guided ecoadventure itineraries in the unspoiled Amazon forests of southeastern Peru, we are able to offer travelers the opportunity to contribute to conservation simply by coming to our eco-lodge, enjoying our hospitality, and exploring the natural world in our company.
At Tambopata Ecolodge, we do not use the term “ecotourism” as a marketing tool. As an officially certified eco-lodge, it is our life’s work to provide a way for people to experience and learn more about nature. And this means that the visitors who come to stay with us at Tambopata Ecolodge are contributing to the conservation of endangered species and threatened ecosystems, because by their presence they are helping us to continue with our work!
