Red-and-green Macaws (Ara chloroptera)
Macaws! These unique birds members of the Psittacidae family are not only beautiful and colourful, but are considered amongst the scientific community as one of the most intelligent birds, highly active and extremely social. Position yourself at our hide and watch these astonishing species on a daily basis visiting our Macaw Clay Lick. This is arguably one of the best sites in the world observe in comfort more than 100 individuals consuming clay to enhance their diet.
Giant River Otter (Pteronura brasiliensis)
Otters! These beauties are considered to be one of the most fascinating mammals that the Amazon ecosystem has to offer. Usually living in families of four to eight individuals, Giant otters enjoy long swimming sessions hunting for fish and socializing with their families. Considered an apex predator in the Amazon basin, these wonderful animals find strength in groups and have been seen to overpower other water-dwelling predators such as adult caiman.
Giant Anteater (Myrmecophaga tridactyla)
This highly insectivorous mammal, natural to the wet forests of South and Central America, enjoys foraging in habitats where termites and other ant species are available. Equipped with a specialized tongue and long, sharp claws, a tubular snout and long tail, this terrestrial mammal can weight up to 110 Ibs with a life expectancy of 16 years.Giant Anteaters are excellent swimmers as well as climbers, characteristics that enable it to reach termite mounds wherever they are, even if they are far from the canopy's understorey.
Harpy Eagle (Harpia harpyja)
By far the king of the sky in South America, this raptor is one of the most respected predators in the Amazon. Equipped with sharp claws and weighing up to 10 Ib, with an average wingspan of 6ft. this bird's diet comprises not only small mammals such as Opossums, Agoutis, squirrels, raccoons, but even larger ones such as Capuchin Monkeys, Titi Monkeys, Howler Monkeys, Spider Monkeys, South American Taramandulas and even sloths! You can usually spot this fine species in the primary forests that contain large, old trees such as the Kapoks (Ceiba pentandra), which are their optimal choice for nest building.
Jaguar (Pantera onca)
Nothing stand higher in the South American food chain than Jaguars. Often seen sunbathing on the shores of the Madre de Dios river or patrolling our forest trails, this apex terrestrial predator is elusive yet can be visible in daylight. Weighing up to 211 lb, Jaguars can forage on almost any fauna available in the forest. They have even been seen to take caimans underwater as they are expert swimmers and climbers. Ask your guide to see the latest of our camera trap footage.
Red Howler Monkey (Alouatta seniculus)
The king of all monkeys, the Red Howler Monkey is amongst the loudest of primates in the rainforest. Recorded at 150 dB, this boisterous creature's calls can top even the noise from engines or chain-saws. Red Howlers have evolved their splendid cacophony in order to stake a clear claim over their trees and members of the troop, marking their territory as the alpha male in the group. Apart from these noisy monkeys, you can also enjoy viewing up-close several individuals of up to 13 different species of primates seen traversing our trails in groups, including the Dusky-titi Monkey, Capuchin Monkey, Squirrel Monkeys Spider Monkey and Emperor Tamarin.
Bradypus (Three-toed Sloth)
Weighing up to 9lb, these slow but resourceful mammals spend most of their lives hanging upside down. Although they are expert swimmers, this species rarely comes down from their favourite Cecropia trees, ideal vegetation that not only serves as habitat and protection from terrestrial predators, but also as a food source. Herbivorous by nature, this mammal feasts primarily on leaves and shrubs and can spend most of its day sleeping under the perfect camouflage of the branches that blend into the color of their fur. You can get the best views along the stretches of water that connect the Madre de Dios river with our Macaw Clay Lick. Your guide can take you to this natural hotspot by canoe.
Red-Brocket Deer (Mazama americana)
Considered the biggest species of all the brockets, larger males may weight up to 143lbs. They are elusive animals but they do appear within our flooded forests and they have been seen foraging on clay at our Macaw Clay Lick. Primarily herbivorous, this mammal enjoys to eat fruits and it lives in dense forest that provides ideal camouflage.
Horned Screamer (Anhima cornuta)
A member of a small family of birds (Anhima), the Horned Screamer is endemic to the wetlands of South America. Equipped with a horned-like tip that projects from its skull, the animal is hard to miss especially if you hear its peculiar call, a very loud, echoing sound. It is best seen on a catamaran ride to one of our oxbow lakes - in fact, the name of of Camungo Oxbow Lake was inspired by this animal. On the same boat ride you can observe many different species such as the White-throated Toucan, several herons and different Aracari individuals.
Puma (Puma concolor)
Also known as the Cougar or Mountain Lion, these animals roam southern America from the plains of Mexico down to the lower forests of Argentina. Although this species is thought to prefer open-dry habitats, many individuals have been tracked by our camera traps set along the Tocón & Machín Trails, 45 minutes away from our Lodge grounds. Just as with Jaguars, you can expect to view other wildcat species in the area as well, such as Ocelots, Margay and even the elusive Jaguarundi.

Although it does not belong to us, the Amazon is our home and our mission here never ceases. We are focussed on minimizing the impact that our operations have on the environment.

Through positive relationships with native communities and other companies that share our vision on conservation, Tambo Blanquillo is committed to environmental sustainability work, prioritizing the creation of ties with communities, educational institutions and foundations.

Located just 5km from the Tambo Blanquillo facilities is an area designated for scientific research. Here there are numerous ecosystems, hundreds of species of birds, mammals, reptiles, amphibians, insects, plants and trees native to primary forests.

    As part of our "vacation of a lifetime" in Peru, we booked a 5 night stay in Tambo Blanquillo. We did a lot of research before booking and all the huts deep in the jungle are very expensive. Even so, we continue to move forward because we really want to enter the forest and have a good opportunity to see all kinds of wild animals. This is the best decision in our trip. From beginning to end, the care and attention of all employees is amazing. Our guide David came to the hotel the night before the trip to meet us and accompany us on our trip, all the excursions in the jungle and most of the return trip (we returned to the afternoon, not Cusco). He is very knowledgeable and can always find something interesting to point out to us, whether it's day or night hikes, river cruises, or even buses. He is also very considerate. Our youngest son suffers from motion sickness. He understands that and bought him some rehydration medicine. During the hike, he perfectly adapted to our interests and different age groups. As for the hotel itself, we stayed in a bungalow and they were very nice, better than we expected given the remote location. Nice hot shower, comfortable bed and pillows etc. The food is very good, sometimes served according to our preferences and presented with care and skill. In fact, even though my football skills are poor, all the staff are great! Everything is clean and efficient. We have always felt very petted (to be taken care of). The hotel has land with 3 lakes and clay, so it is inevitable to see wild animals. Time flies, watching the macaws gradually descend to the clay lick, and it's great to sit on the mammal's clay lick after dark (it's a bit scary when two tapirs are standing). I hope we do this every night.

    The hotel is family owned and borders Manu National Park. Therefore, when you are not in the park, you can see pristine rainforest, wildlife (the highlight is the clay lick that attracts hundreds of colorful parrots), other birds and mammals, caiman, and a large number of Breathtakingly beautiful rainforest. An excellent guide will take you paddling along the sidewalks and catamarans into the rainforest. Another highlight is the big tree tower 140 feet above the ground. The hotel is also very comfortable, the food is great, the staff is very friendly and the atmosphere is great. You can enjoy a cold beer and surf the Internet in a very remote place. highly recommended.

    The best choice for nature lovers, with some money to spend! We booked 3N / 4D Manu Express and regretted that we did not choose to stay longer at Tambo Blanquillo. Our guide Saturnino and all the staff are very friendly and have endless knowledge about nature and wildlife. We are really lucky to have the opportunity to see jaguars, monkeys, macaws, giant otters, caiman and snakes, etc... The private bungalows are great and provide the best comfort you can get in the rainforest. The best part of our vacation in Peru! This rubbish is worth every penny.

Great location in the middle of the jungle. Tambo Blanquillo nearby wildlife viewing spots are very close, which means we have a lot of places to see, and there is a lot of time to relax. A very special place to stay.
