This 9-day specific photography tour examines the amazing biodiversity of South-Eastern Peruvian Amazonia at a slow pace, offering great opportunities for wildlife photography. Tambopata National Reserve covers an area of 274,690 hectares (1,060.6 square miles) of lowland Amazonian rainforest, riverine forest, and oxbow lakes near the Malinowski, Tambopata, and Madre de Dios Rivers, in southeastern Peru. The large area of biodiverse habitats protected in the reserve play host to well over 1,000 species of butterflies, more than 100 species of mammals, around 600 species of birds, and hundreds of species of trees and plants.
First, the group will stay at the wonderful Posada Amazonas for 2 nights, exploring terra firme forests and a owbox lake with Giant River Otters and Caimans. From the canopy tower you will have great chances to photograph a huge diversity of birds.
Then we will move to the delightful Tambopata Research Center lodge, where the bird diversity is just amazing. We will visit the canopy tower, the macaw clay lick (the largest macaw clay lick known in Peru), and oxbow lake with chances to see anacondas, jaguars and tapirs.
On our way back to Puerto Maldonado we stay one night at Refugio Amazonas lodge, if we get lucky here, we could spot and photograph a Harpy Eagle.
