Tambopata National Reserve

The location of Tambopata Ecolodge offers easy access to the wildlife habitats of the tropical forest and the extraordinary biodiversity of Tambopata National Reserve.

 

Exploring the forest lake system by canoe or along narrow trails is a marvelous experience. Much of the area’s abundant fauna lives on or near water sources. Aside from many of the more than 500 species of birds recorded in the Reserve, lakes are home to giant otters and black caiman. Formed by over 1400 individual plant species, the forests are also home to 13 species of monkeys, 1200 species of butterflies, 60 kinds of amphibians and more than 100 types of mammals, with the solitary jaguar dominating an infinitely complex food chain.

 

Together with the adjacent Bahuaja-Sonene National Park in Peru and the Madidi National Park across the border in Bolivia, the Tambopata National Reserve forms the largest area of protected tropical forest in South America.

 

Ecosystem, fauna and flora

To the east of the Andes lies the Amazon basin, a lowland region known to biologists as subtropical humid forest, which receives less rainfall than tropical forest. The climate here is warm and humid. The driest season is from June to October, with an average of seven rainy days a month. During the rest of the year there is more rain, with January and February the rainiest months. Animals can be seen throughout the year and they often go to rivers and lakes to drink during the dry season. The fruit season is during and immediately after the rainy season, and birds and monkeys are particularly active at this time.

 

Macaw clay lick

One of the most spectacular sights in the Amazon is just a fascinating three-hour boat ride from the Ecolodge, at a bend in the river known as a macaw clay lick. Here hundreds of parrots and macaws from at least 10 species come together every day from throughout the surrounding forest to feed, creating a spectacle of color and sound like no other in the natural world.

 

Eco-friendly river transport

When traveling on rivers we use fast, non-polluting launches made from fiberglass. No ancient trees are cut down to make our boats and we are able to cover long distances and show you more of the forest during your stay.

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.
