We established Tambopata Ecolodge in 1991. In addition to the itineraries we offer within Tambopata National Reserve, as part of our own work to conserve the biological diversity of the Amazon basin, Tambopata Ecolodge has acquired and set aside its privately-owned land for conservation. In 2009, this process was consolidated through the georeferencing of surrounding lands, in order to determine the precise coordinates of the area of tropical forest we work to protect. Following a long process, on October 20th 2016 Peru’s Ministry of the Environment officially recognized Tambopata Ecolodge as a Private Conservation Area. Covering 1065 hectares, it is the country’s largest protected natural area in its category.
At Tambopata Ecolodge, the term “eco-” is not a marketing tool to attract visitors. We are officially certified as an Ecolodge by the Peruvian government and acknowledged as a genuinely responsible company fully committed to the conservation of tropical rainforests that exist because we exist.
Visitors who come to stay with us at Tambopata Ecolodge are contributing to the conservation of endangered species and threatened ecosystems (see our video).
