We are an Amazon basin ecotourism destination officially classed as an eco-lodge by the Peruvian government, located in the Buffer Zone of Tambopata National Reserve, around 68 kilometers from the jungle town of Puerto Maldonado. Our beautiful and isolated location is surrounded by primary forest and flanked by the Tambopata River. Our Tambopata Ecolodge is reached via a short journey by plane and boat, or by road and river, from the city of Cusco.
We have been working since 1991 in the conservation of our corner of the Peruvian Amazon, and to support the local economy and the people who live in the jungles of southeastern Peru. We are proud to be recognized by the Peruvian state as the guardians of the Tambopata Ecolodge Private Conservation Area, the largest protected natural area in its category in Peru, and of the other Conservation Concessions that we have been granted.
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 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 slogan to attract visitors. We are officially certified as an Ecolodge by the Peruvian government and acknowledged as a genuinely responsible ecotourism 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).
