Giant River Otter
A powerful and playful otter that can reach 1.80m high and a weight of 80 kilos. It feeds on around 5 kilos of fish per day and hunts in family groups, using its whiskers to detect the fishes' movements. Each lake sustains only one family.
Scarlet Macaw
A species of bird belonging to the family of psittacines. It is one of the nine existing species of the Ara genus and reaches 90cm in length and 1kg in weight. It is distinguished from other macaws by its colorful plumage, which is mainly bright red but fringed by blue and yellow feathers.
White Cayman
This is a reptile that lives in fresh water in swamps in the northwest of South America. The males measure between 1.8m and 2.5m in length, and the females 1.4m. They feed on crustaceans, fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds and small to medium-sized mammals.
Harpy Eagle
This is a neotropical species of eagle, the largest and most powerful raptor found in the rainforest. It usually inhabits tropical lowland rainforests in the emergent canopy layer. Destruction of its natural habitat has caused it to vanish from many parts of its former range.
Anaconda
This impressive snake is found in tropical South America. Four species are currently recognized but the name is often used to refer only to one species in particular, the Common or Green Anaconda which is the largest snake in the world by weight and the second longest (from 6m to 13m).
Capybara
This is a semiaquatic mammal of Central and South America. It resembles the Cavy and the Guinea Pig of the family Caviidae. South American capybaras can be 1.25m long and weigh 66kg. They are short-haired brownish rodents with blunt snouts, short legs, small ears, and almost no tail.
Sloth
These arboreal mammals are noted for their slowness and for spending their lives hanging upside down in rainforest trees in South America. They are divided into two families: Two-toed Sloths and Three-toed Sloths. Their behaviour and lifestyle are evolutionary adaptations to their low-energy supplying diet of leaves and the need to avoid detection by predatory hawks and cats.
Hoatzin
This bird is also known as the Reptile Bird or Stinkbird and is a tropical species found in swamps and mangroves of the Amazon and the Orinoco basins in South America. It is notable for having chicks that have claws on two of their wing digits and the fact that it feeds on leaves.
Red Howler Monkey
Males range from 49cm–72cm and females from 46cm–57cm long. The males weigh 5.4kg-9kg, while females weigh 4.2kg–7kg. This monkey has a prehensile tail of 49cm–75cm in length, which allows it to grip branches.
Jaguar
This wild cat is the only extant member of the genus Panthera native to the Americas and the biggest cat species in South America. It is listed as Threatened on the IUCN Red List and its numbers are declining due to loss and fragmentation of habitat.

The original research program that began at Explorer’s Inn led on to the founding of the RAINFOR Organization that currently conducts many studies into the rainforest, right across South and Central America. A network of plots around the lodge are still being studied, more than 40 years after they were established, and are contributing valuable data and observations into the botany of Amazonia. It is also helping to develop new generations of Amazon ecologists. The work of RAINFOR is currently supported by funding agencies in Brazil, Colombia, the UK and the EU.

    It was excellent to have a local guide. Bring along and wear thick gloves (garden or ski) if you lose your balance when walking in your boots in deep mud. If you fall into the mud, you have the option of sinking into the mud or hugging/grabbing onto the next tree, which may be full with unpleasant surprises such as scorpions. The second option allows you to grab onto something and protect yourself while also improving your grip. A face mosquito net is also a good idea. Take pleasure in the unknown world of surprises and the unexpected, but be ready :)

    Our Intrepid tour brought us here. It was a fantastic adventure. Christian and Ivan, our tour guides, were fantastic. To learn more about the local flora and animals, we went on day and night hikes. Christian had an uncanny ability to recognize animals. When we were there, the lodge was evidently under new management, and they were building new rooms. We stayed in a newer lodge room, which was fantastic. The beds were quite comfortable. Rainwater showers are still chilly at the present, but hot showers are on the way. The dinner was delicious, and they took excellent care of us. If you want to kick a soccer ball around, there is a soccer pitch nearby.

    It was my first visit to a rain forest in South America. For two nights, my trip companions and I slept at Explorer Inn. The location was excellent. We went on numerous trips with knowledgeable local guides. In the forest, we had night and day walking trips. We spent the entire day and night exploring the river and its wildlife. Our rooms had limited electricity, which is to be expected. The room was large enough for three people, although it was a touch filthy, and we were told that the rooms had just been painted before we arrived, so it smelled like paint. The eating setting was lovely, and the meal was delicious. Overall, I'd say we had a fantastic experience there. Yomi was our guide, and I want to thank him again for showing us around the Amazon.

    Our Intrepid Tour included a stop at this resort. With an open dining and communal sitting space, the lodge has a lovely rustic vibe. The beds were really comfy, and there were mosquito nets available. Be ready for some chilly showers. We observed a variety of animals, including otters, piranhas, monkeys, lizzards, butterflies, and snakes, thanks to the wonderful activities and guides. I'm not sure how the guides found them! The Guides also made us laugh with their stories and liked talking to us about our backgrounds... as well as learning English and Australian slang. The food was delicious, with plenty of vegetarian and gluten-free alternatives.

    We only stayed at Explorer's Inn for three days. The staff is nice and goes above and beyond to make your stay as pleasant as possible. The rooms are clean, with mosquito nets and solar-powered lamps (since some rooms don't have electricity and you'll need these to get between the dining area and your room at night); some rooms have hot water, but the majority have cold water only. You can watch the sunset from a vantage point along the water's edge, or walk up a canopy tower. The guides were knowledgeable, and there was enough of time to explore during the days before dining at the hotel.

    I stayed at Explorer's Inn for two days and had a great time in the jungle. The rooms were pretty nice and just what one would expect for a rainforest visit, despite the lodge's rustic nature. Coming from a huge city, falling asleep to the sounds of the jungle rather than traffic was a nice change. Mosquito netting and candles were provided in the rooms for usage outside of the hours when the generator generated energy (this was only for around 4 hours per night). The food was plenty and delicious. It takes a bit to get there from Puerto Maldonaldo (a 45-minute drive followed by an hour on the river), but that's all part of the fun.
