Which is the best country to visit the Amazon rainforest?

28 January 2023 (84 visits)

From high elfin forest and cloud forest, to the vast expanse of lowland rainforest, the Amazon basin crosses the territory of nine nations, covering around 40% of South America. Most of this natural wonder is located in Brazil and Peru.


When you plan your Amazon rainforest tour, the most important decision is your choice of eco-lodge or cruise ship, and the standard of service, comfort, as well as local knowledge and expertise, you expect as part of the best experience possible.


Unless you feel more inclined to opt for a luxury cruise on the Amazon River itself, the best way to explore the Amazon basin is to stay at a specially designed jungle lodge. With an eco-lodge stay, you can kick back, enjoy comfort and good food, and venture into the rainforest on excursions with an expert jungle guide, to experience for yourself the most biodiverse region on Earth.


For travelers with this in mind, there are some very good eco-lodges across South America. However, while any one of these can offer a great experience, there are significant differences between the areas visited by tourists.


In Peru, in addition to unspoiled primary forests and record-breaking biodiversity, our Tambopata Private Conservation Area and the neighboring Tambopata National Reserve offer something not all rainforest destinations can boast: accessibility. Our eco-lodge is situated in virgin forest, on the edge of the National Reserve, in a remote part of the Amazon bordered by both Brazil and Bolivia. But in spite of the remoteness that ensures our guests can enjoy an authentic Amazon experience, we are easy to reach!


Getting to our eco-lodge is simple: All our guests need to do is take a scheduled flight from Lima or Cusco, and we will pick them up from the airport in the jungle town of Puerto Maldonado. And for those guests who choose to take a bus from Cusco, our team will be on hand to meet them at the bus station in Puerto Maldonado.


After visiting our office in the town, and storing with our help the luggage they won’t be needing at our Tambopata Ecolodge, we take our guests by private vehicle to the river port, to board one of our boats for the journey to our jungle home, deep into the Amazon forest.


Wildlife in the forests we help to protect is at carrying capacity for a healthy rainforest habitat. This means that our guests can expect to see an extraordinary variety of Amazon fauna and flora, with the help of our expert naturalist guides. And as an added bonus, Tambopata is home to the highest known concentration of macaw and parrot clay licks, where these colorful and noisy birds gather en masse to feed on the mineral deposits essential to their diet!

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.
