The Tambopata Eco Lodge in the Peruvian Amazon is one of the most established eco-tourism lodges on the banks of the Tambopata River. With a capacity of just 59, it is also one of the smallest lodges, which is how the lodge intends to keep it. Smaller groups, they believe, contribute to a more fulfilling visit and reduce the impact on the many species of fauna that abound in the surrounding forest.
You’ll spend 2 to 3 nights or more at the Tambopata Lodge, with canoe or walking day-trips led by local naturalist guides to explore the richness and diversity of the Amazon rainforest. You'll learn all about the flora, insects, birds, butterflies, mammals, and more that co-exist in this amazing, elegant, and beautifully balanced interconnected ecosystem.
The Tambopata Eco Lodge employs around 20 Peruvian staff, the majority of whom are residents in Puerto Maldonado. In addition, there are a number of naturalist guides, both from Peru and abroad, who are at your service throughout your stay. As well as guiding and introducing visitors to the many marvels of the forest, a number are undertaking research projects, thereby contributing to a greater ecological understanding of the area.
