InkaNatura Travels offers discerning nature travellers a variety of wildlife experiences (including bird watching tours) from a number of eco-lodges in Peru we own and manage. Located in Tambopata is the Sandoval Lake Lodge and Heath River Wildlife Center. In Manu, there is the Manu Wildlife Center, Cock of the Rock Lodge and Manu Park Wildlife Center.
These ecolodges provide ideal Tambopata Tours or bases to appreciate over 600 bird species including endemic and near-endemic, as well as a variety of other exotic Peruvian wildlife.
Ecolodge Peru experiences with InkaNatura Travel will include birding tours, however, we recommend to be active and include hiking trails through the rainforest to maximise your wildlife experience. Depending on which wildlife or birdwatching tour you choose, you can admire wildlife along the trails in the remote Amazonian jungle, and perhaps view the mammal clay lick and the elusive Tapir, the largest mammal in the Amazon.
Wildlife enthusiasts can visit the area where they will see a lake, inside the Bahuaja Sonene National Park, abundant with bird species, possible monkey sightings and the family of giant river otters (Pteronura brasiliensis). There is amazing diversity of environments that can be experienced in the short walk from the river to the Pampas of Heath; a trip that passes through a nesting place for the Blue and Yellow Macaw.
InkaNatura Travel is part of Peru Verde’s overall conservation strategy to protect the country’s unique cultural and biological diversity. InkaNatura Travel contributes heavily to the maintenance of national parks, reserves, and archaeological sites within Peru.
Peru Verde is experimenting with different ecotourism business models business including lodges which are 100% owned by nonprofit conservation groups to mixed ventures between nonprofit and local clans or families though marketed by Peru Verde’s travel agencies.
Inkanatura Travel is the only nonprofit group in Peru that owns for-profit travel agencies or tour operators like InkaNatura Travel. The only conservation object of these agencies is to generate wildlife tourism to Peru. All of Peru Verde’s profits from these eco-lodges are used entirely in conservation work.
InkaNatura’s mission is to provide the best-customised wildlife experience in Peru. Inkanatura Travel guarantees professional and personalised customer care by our highly motivated team.
Inkanatura Travel also has a macaw clay lick project in Manu Wildlife Center. This specific project consists of placing artificial nests in areas affected by deforestation and illegal logging, therefore, compensating the lack of natural spaces for nesting. For several years this work has been performed with very successful results. Currently, field monitoring allows InkaNatura Travel to evidence the repeated use of these nests by different couples of macaws.
The population of Scarlet Macaw is recovering by hanging artificial nests, and enabling a wall of the earth so the future will become a Macaw clay lick. Tourists can see what is done in this Project at MWC.
