German photographer Stefano Paterna

February 3rd 2017:

The German photographer Stefano Paterna visited our Ecolodge recently to add to his South American wildlife portfolio, and later spoke enthusiastically about his time in Tambopata National Reserve. “After having visited now Manu National Park, Tambopata National Reserve and Pacaya-Samiria National Park, I can honestly say that I liked Tambopata National Reserve and especially Tambopata Ecolodge the most”, said the Cologne-based photographer following his stay at the Ecolodge.

December 5th 2016:

Tambopata Ecolodge has won official recognition as a Private Conservation Area (ACP). The company obtained the certification from the Peruvian state for the protection of 1065 hectares of virgin tropical forest. The government resolution was published in the newspaper of record El Peruano on October 25th, and the certificate will be presented in a public ceremony.


Article 28 of the Political Constitution of Peru establishes the state’s obligation to promote the conservation of the nation’s biological diversity, and with this new resolution the future of the fauna and flora sheltered by the lands owned by Tambopata Ecolodge is assured. 


According to Peruvian law, a Private Conservation Area enjoys the same rights as a State-Protected Natural Area: in exchange for strict compliance with conservation measures by the Ecolodge, the Peruvian state will guarantee the legal protection of its lands against any invasive action and/or the illicit exploitation of the flora and fauna those lands are home to.

Jaguar (Panthera onca), the biggest cat in the Americas

November 6th 2016:

Last week a jaguar was spotted by our groups over a two-day period, on the banks of the Tambopata River, just one kilometer from the Ecolodge. You can see a video of a jaguar sighting, filmed by one of our guides, here. And you can read more about the Tambopata National Reserve’s jaguars here.

Green anaconda (Eunectes murinus), also known as the water boa

November 1st 2016:

During the month of October, our guides and groups enjoyed several anaconda sightings. On one particularly memorable occasion, four anacondas were spotted at Lake Sachavacayoc (see our itineraries) as unusually dry weather in the rainforest caused water levels to fall dramatically. You can read more about Tambopata National Reserve’s anacondas here.

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.
