Ecolodge and camping




Our Ecolodge

The remote location of our Ecolodge, 72 kilometers by river from the nearest settlement, deep in the forest and close to natural oxbow lake ecosystems, means that the most remarkable attractions of the South American rainforest can be reached easily in half-day or full-day excursions, while evenings can be spent relaxing and enjoying our hotel standard accommodation, restaurant and bar services.

 

 

Suite Rooms

Our Suite rooms are spacious (34 m2 / 366 sq. feet) and fully screened against insects. Twin rooms are equipped with two double beds, double rooms with a king size bed. All beds are fitted with mosquito nets. Rooms have private adjoining bathrooms, with hot water provided by solar energy, and are supplied with bathrobes, slippers, cold drinks and a safe deposit box. Each room’s private porch (11.5 m2 / 124 sq. feet) is furnished with chairs, a table and hammocks.

 

 

Superior Rooms

Our comfortable Superior rooms measure 24 m2 (258 sq. feet) and are fully screened. Twin rooms are equipped with two double beds, double rooms with a king size bed. All beds are fitted with mosquito nets. Rooms have private adjoining bathrooms, with hot water provided by solar energy. Each room’s private porch (10 m2 / 108 sq. feet) is furnished with chairs, a table and hammocks.

 

 

Comfort

At the Ecolodge a visit to unspoiled tropical forest habitats does not mean enduring discomfort. We offer our guests the finest lodge accommodation in the reserve, with hotel-style comfort, infrastructure, facilities and food.

 

 

Minimal negative environmental impact

The exteriors of our cabin-like rooms are designed from local materials to harmonize with their surroundings. The Ecolodge’s interiors have been created with your comfort in mind, while many of the materials employed have been imported to the zone to minimize local environmental impact, while enhancing the luxurious feel of the accommodation.

 

Rooms are spacious, well-decorated, comfortable and fully-screened against insects. Our two categories of accommodation –Superior and Suite- have private bathrooms with light and hot water provided by solar panels, and each cabin has its own porch with hammocks for relaxing between trips into the surrounding forest.

 

 

Bar and restaurant

Peru is justly famous throughout the world for its fine cuisine, and at Tambopata Ecolodge we do everything possible to honor that tradition. After spending the day in the company of our guides, or even walking part of the sign-posted 25 kilometer trail system around the lodge independently, there could be no better way to spend the evening than a fine meal in our excellent restaurant or an exotic cocktail in our well-stocked bar.

Rainforest camping excursions

The Ecolodge selects safe and appropriate riverside locations for its campsites. The equipment provided for Ecolodge guests during itineraries that include camping excursions includes tents for sleeping, mattresses, sleeping bags, sheets, pillows, towels and biodegradable soap.

 

In addition, a dining tent is provided, equipped with folding tables and chairs. Candles and lamps are used at night to light the campsite.

 

Typically, the latrine tent is erected around 30 to 40 meters from the main campsite; this is a modern, biodegradable chemical toilet tent.

 

Guests are provided with a bowl of warm water and a towel for washing in the morning.

 

All meals are cooked and served by Ecolodge staff during camping trips. A balanced diet is offered, and vegetarians and vegans can be catered for.

 

The campsites selected are located some distance from the macaw clay lick, to avoid disturbing birds and other wildlife at the lick.

 

The personnel accompanying guests on camping trips includes a bilingual guide, chief boatman, helmsman and cook.

 

All waste is returned to the Ecolodge for proper disposal.

Rainforest Alliance - Tambopata Eco Lodge

What your rainforest visit means


In Peru it is tourism that has made it possible to create national reserves and save the forests of the Amazon basin from destruction. By working to encourage travelers to visit the rainforest, we are ensuring it will be around for future generations to appreciate. Pioneering projects like Tambopata Ecolodge, which was established in 1991, provide the model that teaches local people the importance of conserving our natural heritage, by showing them that forests are worth more to us all when they are left to flourish, instead of being exploited.
