In Peru, responsible 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, we are ensuring that the forests will still be around long into the future.
Pioneering projects like our eco-lodge, which we established back in 1991, serve as a conservation model by showing how responsible travel can encourage, support and finance grassroots conservation initiatives. The forests we help to protect exist today, along with the animals they shelter, because we exist to protect them.
Our Amazon eco-lodge is designed to be a wildlife refuge. Its unsurpassed location on the banks of the Tambopata River, with the vast Tambopata National Reserve as our backyard, means that the travelers who come to stay with us in our beautiful and peaceful home can enjoy an authentic experience, surrounded by nature in its purest state.
Our environmentally conscious lodge is located strategically on the edge Tambopata National Reserve, far enough from the town of Puerto Maldonado, where we meet our guests from their flight or bus journey, to place us in pristine, unspoiled rainforest. This means we can guarantee our guests some of the best wildlife observation opportunities in South America, in tropical forests they can access as part of a Peru vacation that includes Cusco, Machu Picchu and the famous Inca Trail.
Since 1991, we have been committed to the conservation of the Amazon rainforest, and to empowering local communities, so that they can turn away from activities harmful to the natural world, and embrace more environmentally aware, eco-travel based ways to earn a good living.
At Tambopata Ecolodge, we offer experiences that connect our guests with nature in its purest form during every moment of their stay with us. And at the same time, the travelers who come to our eco-lodge can be sure that they will leave a significant positive impact on the forest and our local communities, by contributing with their presence to the protection of the rainforest while they have a great time, and returning to their home countries as new ambassadors for the Peruvian Amazon as a whole, and our own Tambopata forests in particular.
