Tambopata Eco-Lodges and Wildlife Tours
Rainforest Expeditions has three Tambopata Eco-Lodges. The Posada Amazonas and the Refugio Amazonas are located adjacent to the Tambopata National Reserve, and the Tambopata Research Center, within it and directly next to the uninhabited and pristine Bahuaja-Sonene National Park.

At Rainforest Expeditions we are passionate about wildlife and nature. We are committed to our guests and hosts, the Amazonian people, and we strive to connect the income of the former to the needs of the later, engaging them with the Amazon rainforest.
By combining cultural activities with access to natural attractions, such as oxbow lakes, parrot and macaw clay licks, primary forest and wildlife, our Tambopata programs reflect our philosophy. The Tambopata region is home to some of the most diverse lowland wetland 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 river basins of the Tambopata and Candamo rivers. It is adjacent to the Bahuaja-Sonene national park of one million hectares. This pristine forest area contains 1,300 species of birds, 32 species of parrots (10% of the world total), 200 species of mammals, 1200 species of butterflies and more than 10,000 species of vascular plants.

Rainforest Expeditions has supported several conservation programs in Tambopata, Peru, since the 1990s. The company has been involved in the research of macaws in southeastern Peru for many years, whose findings have helped the conservation of these threatened birds in Peru, Costa Rica and other countries in South America.
By working closely with local people, Rainforest Expeditions has also helped provide locals with employment and financing for community projects and alternative income to logging and hunting from the bushmeat trade. The construction of Posada Amazonas also turned a local hunting area into a protected wildlife reserve and community property.
Rainforest Expeditions is committed to technology and is developing an innovative citizen science program with projects that focus on the investigation of jaguar populations and the discovery of new species of tiger moths.
