By combining cultural activities with access to natural attractions, such as oxbow lakes, parrot and macaw claylicks, primary rain forest and wildlife, their programmes in Tambopata reflect their philosophy.

Tambopata National Reserve

The Tambopata region harbours some of the most diverse lowland rain forests on the planet.

Its heart, the Tambopata National Reserve, is a 275,000 hectare conservation unit created by the Peruvian government in 1990 to protect the watersheds of the Tambopata and Candamo rivers. It is adjacent to the one million hectare Bahuaja-Sonene National Park. This area of pristine forest contains 1,300 bird species, 32 parrot species (10% of the world’s total), 200 mammal species, 1200 butterfly species, and over 10,000 species of vascular plants.

Within this context lie their three eco-lodges – Posada Amazonas, Refugio Amazonas and Tambopata Research Center. These ecolodges are a small part of the network of organisations and communities that are attempting to protect this amazing wilderness by creating and sharing the value of leaving the forest standing.   Experiencing Tambopata means easy access, fascinating nature and generous people.

Peru Jungle Tours

The suggested wildlife programmes or Peru jungle tours include activities comprising various aspects of nature and culture of the Amazon rain forest. A lecture on a specific subject rounds up the programs aimed at providing a good overview of life in the rain forest.

Further, Rainforest Expeditions offer a variety of special interest activities and Peru tours, with the aim of meeting specific expectations and interests of guests. In addition, the composition of the jungle tours can be customised by adding days, by changing activities and/or by including a specialist or private guide.

Posada Amazonas is an award-winning eco lodge managed by Rainforest Expeditions in conjunction with the local Ese-Eja community of Infierno. Situated in primary lowland rainforest in a roadless, buffer zone area of the Tambopata National Reserve, this 30 bedroom eco-lodge offers classic, superior, and premium rooms with hot water, raised boardwalks, and a wellness center, as well as opportunities for wildlife observation from a canopy tower.

Refugio Amazonas, like Posada Amazonas, is a beautiful eco-lodge built with traditional materials such as wood, clay and palm fronds. It features 32 classic and superior rooms all with hot water, set in a 200 hectares of private rainforest reserve rich with Brazil Nut trees.

The children’s rainforest trail and soft adventure activities available here make this ecolodge an excellent choice for families.  There is something for everyone!

Tambopata Research Center is a remote ecolodge which houses the research station for biologists studying one of the most biodiverse areas on the planet. Situated several hours up the Tambopata River, it is located in the heart of the Tambopata Reserve and is miles away from any roads or habitations. Jaguars are occasionally seen during the trip to and from the lodge along with a good variety of other rainforest wildlife. The lodge has 18 rooms with shared bathrooms.

Conservation

Rainforest Expeditions Conservation

Rainforest Expeditions has supported a number of conservation programmes in Tambopata, Peru since the 1990s. The company has been involved with macaw research in southeastern Peru for many years, the findings of which have aided conservation of these threatened birds in Peru, Costa Rica, and other south American countries.

In closely working with the local people, Rainforest Expeditions has also helped provide the locals with employment and funding for community projects and alternatives income to logging and hunting for the bush meat trade. The construction of Posada Amazonas also turned a local hunting area into a protected, community-owned wildlife reserve.
