Butterflies of the Amazon Tour Peru
This 4-day butterflies of the Amazon tour will take you Southeast of Peru towards Tambopata. Which prides itself on a world record number of registered species for one location. You will have the opportunity to meet some of the 1200 species of butterflies of the National Reserve of Tambopata, becoming a butterfly- lovers paradise. Explorers will have the chance to look for many other wildlife species such as monkeys, macaws, and parrots, agoutis, or capybaras that surround the Brazilian Nuts rainforest at Refugio Amazonas Lodge.
Located in a 200-hectare private reserve within the buffer zone of the Tambopata National Reserve, two hours away from Puerto Maldonado city, Refugio Amazonas Lodge is a secluded, 32-bedroom jungle lodge that lies deep within the rainforest — a luxurious oasis in the wilderness.
Its wide variety of a la carte activities included brings to these butterflies tour in the Amazon the opportunity to visit the Macaw Clay Lick visit, where you are able to observe Amazonian butterflies from the river as well as many different trails around the lodge to look for butterflies specialized to living under the shadows. Visit the canopy tower and learn about the different levels of the rainforest where wildlife has adapted.
We limit our groups to approximately 8 guests per guide in order to maximize personalized photography advice. Not only is this more ecologically sound—larger groups kick up more dust that can affect the butterflies —but an intimate context is crucial to enjoying a quiet, wondrous experience with the butterflies.
During this tour to see butterflies of the Amazon, discover the night butterflies, you will be able to participate in our daily night walks and get in-deep learning of months through our Discovering New Species research and activity, belonging to our Citizen Science program Wired Amazon, where you even can contribute to science by collecting samples of possible new species. In case you discovered a new species you can name it.
