Back in 1991, we built our jungle lodge on the banks of the Tambopata River as a place where international travelers who care about nature can explore the Amazon rainforest safely, in the company of expert local guides who know where to find wildlife
Our eco-lodge is a sustainable ecotourism-based conservation project, set in our own Private Conservation Area and located on the edge of Tambopata National Reserve. It is designed for travelers seeking a way to explore in-depth the Amazon rainforest, as an all-inclusive ecotourism vacation. We meet our guests from Puerto Maldonado airport, and we include all transfers, transport, activities, excursions, meals and accommodation.
It is our location in unspoiled tropical forest, almost 70 kilometers (44 miles) from the nearest jungle town, that makes our eco-lodge such a special ecoadventure experience. And it is our guides who make every jungle excursion a special adventure for each of our guests.
While a visit to the Amazon basin is not like a safari on the African savannah, and time and patience are often needed when seeking out rainforest wildlife, our guides know where to look! And so, although you shouldn’t expect to see immediately a host of animals, the Amazon is home to more species than any other ecosystem on the planet. This means that although many of the rainforest’s creatures tend to hide from view, or to spend much of their time high up in the forest canopy, as you remain quiet on our trails and look carefully, with the help of your own naturalist guide you will begin to see the animals that inhabit the Amazon basin.
It is in undisturbed habitats like the forests we help to protect that visitors have the best chances to see and photograph unique wildlife. And as part of our all-inclusive itineraries, we encourage our guests to experience the rainforest by both day and night. By day, we take our guests to macaw clay licks and oxbow lakes, and after dark we guide them on trail walks and river excursions. The Amazon rainforest is completely different at night, a place filled with animal life which in unison creates an amazing soundtrack with an intensity not heard anywhere else in the world, outside tropical forest ecosystems.
For travelers seeking contact with the natural world that cannot be gained from a sunny beach or a hotel swimming pool, our eco-lodge experience is the perfect place to visit, and to contribute to the conservation of the Amazon rainforest.
