Visiting Tambopata National Reserve

08 June 2024 (268 visits)

If you want to truly experience the Amazon rainforest as part of your Peru vacation, and you only have a couple of weeks of your annual break to visit Peru, then the choice is easy: Skip Iquitos and Manu, and visit us in the Tambopata rainforests of southeastern Peru, at our comfortable Tambopata Ecolodge.


Few people visit the most remote parts of the Amazon basin. And if you ask those who have, many will say that they have visited Iquitos, in northeastern Peru. Iquitos is certainly among the most popular Amazon jungle destinations in South America. But, today mass tourism, coupled with the growing urban population of the city of Iquitos itself, can make it more difficult than ever to find an “authentic” Amazon experience starting in Iquitos. Instead of searching unspoiled jungle for wildlife, many travelers can find themselves at lodges in disturbed, secondary forest where few animals continue to live, or at so-called “traditional” indigenous ceremonies, staged for their benefit.


But happily, in Peru there are other options for visiting the Amazon and perhaps the very best is Tambopata National Reserve, which borders our own Private Conservation Area, and is the setting for our guided trips into the rainforest.


Tambopata offers a much more low-key and authentic Amazon jungle trip for travelers who want to see the rainforest after their visit to Cusco and Machu Picchu. And because we are just a short flight or a bus ride away from Cusco, a trip to stay with us at our jungle lodge in Tambopata is the perfect add-on to a Peru vacation that includes Cusco, Machu Picchu, the Inca Trail, and other major tourism attractions in Peru, such as Lake Titicaca.


Contact us as you plan your Peru vacation, and we’ll help you with your plans to include the perfect jungle eco-lodge stay in Peru!

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.
