Tambopata: Among the world’s most sustainable travel destinations

13 October 2021 (63 visits)

Great news for travelers looking for ways to get away from their daily routine and experience nature! Nine tourist destinations in Peru have been included in the "Top 100 Sustainable Destinations", a globally recognized list that acknowledges those tourism destinations that are most respectful towards natural ecosystems, with minimal impact on the environment, as well as upon local culture.

 

The list was announced this month in Amsterdam by Green Destinations, an organization accredited by the Global Sustainable Tourism Council (GSTC).  Among the nine Peru travel destinations recognized by the 2021 list, which includes Lake Titicaca and Colca Canyon, is Tambopata National Reserve, where from our Tambopata Ecolodge we operate many of our sustainable ecotourism packages.

 

Thanks to this recognition, Tambopata joins an international group of destinations committed to sustainability and recommended by eco-friendly travel professionals across the globe, including the renowned world travel website “Good Travel Guide”.

 

At our own Tambopata Ecolodge, we have been working for a sustainable future for more than 30 years, while offering international travelers responsible holiday options in the form of our full-board, all-inclusive Amazon ecotourism programs.

 

Inclusion in the "Top 100 Sustainable Destinations List" is a boost to the work that we have been doing for more than three decades to position Tambopata as a travel destination that promises unique experiences through contact with nature. It also comes at an important time for us, as we reactivate our ecotourism activities with all the measures required by the Safe Travels seal, and invite travelers once more to share time with us at our remote jungle eco-lodge.

 

At Tambopata Ecolodge, we combine our conservation work with ecotourism, inviting guests to take time out from their everyday lives, see the work we are doing to protect our corner of the Amazon basin, and venture out into forests and onto rivers in the company of our expert naturalist guides, in search of wildlife!

 

The forests we help to protect are home to a variety of rainforest ecosystems that shelter extraordinary biological diversity. Within Tambopata National Reserve, the presence has been recorded of more than 600 species of birds, 1200 butterfly species, 103 amphibians, 200 kinds of fish, 103 reptiles and 169 mammals.

 

The reserve’s lake systems and forests provide the perfect habitat for endangered Amazon mammals, including the giant river otter, the neo-tropical otter, the eyra cat, the puma, ocelot, and jaguar.


Primate species found in Tambopata include spider monkeysbrown-mantled tamarins, howler monkeys, black-headed night monkeys, brown woolly monkeys, and squirrel monkeys


Other major species of mammals found with the Tambopata National Reserve include the South American tapir, white-lipped peccary, red brocket deer, gray deer, and two-toed and three-toed sloths.

 

The remote location of our ecofriendly Tambopata Ecolodge, deep in the forest, 68 kilometers by land and river from the nearest town, means that the most incredible natural attractions of the South American rainforest can be reached easily in half-day or full-day guided ecotourism excursions, while evenings can be spent relaxing and enjoying our comfortable eco-lodge facilities. So what are you waiting for? Write to us now and let us help you plan your own Amazon adventure!

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.
