Wildlife Photography Tour in Tambopata, Peru
This 9-day Amazon wildlife photography tour is a leisurely paced trip available as a set-departure or on request. On this photo trip to the Amazon we aim to help you capture through the lens of your camera some of the amazing biodiversity of species that inhabit south-eastern Peruvian Amazonia. The varied photography tour will focus not just on mammals and birds but on insects as well.
Our Amazon wildlife photo trip visits the Tambopata National Reserve. This protected area covers 1,060.6 square miles of lowland Amazonian rain and riverine forest and takes in many oxbow lakes. It is located between the Malinowski, Tambopata, and Madre de Dios Rivers. A large number of biodiverse habitats are protected in the reserve and play host to well over 1,000 species of butterflies, more than 100 mammals, around 600 species of birds, and hundreds of different plants.
First, the group will stay at the wonderful Posada Amazonas for two nights. From there, we will explore terra firme forests and an oxbow lake with Giant River Otters, Black Caiman and even the chance of very rare Dwarf Caiman. From the canopy tower, you will have a vantage point to photograph a huge diversity of macaws, parrots, toucans and many other bird species. The trails around the lodge are good for photographing trumpeteers, manakins and motmots.
Then, our wildlife photo trip in the Amazon moves to the delightful Tambopata Research Center lodge - a paradise for birdwatching in Peruvian Amazonia. Here, the bird diversity is just amazing. We will visit the canopy tower, the macaw clay lick and an oxbow lake. We will be looking for Anacondas, Jaguars and Tapirs.
On our way back to Puerto Maldonado we will stay one night at the Refugio Amazonas lodge. If our luck is in we could spot and photograph a Harpy Eagle.
This tour is a great opportunity to take home prize-winning images of the wonderful wildlife of the Amazon.
