Stay in lodge by the Tambopata River in one of the world's last accessible virgin rainforests.

The Peruvian Amazon rainforest is one of the last easily accessible virgin tropical rainforests of the world. Conservation International considers it widely unexplored and one of the global Mega Diversity Hot Spots. Toucans, macaws, parrots, tamarin monkeys, red squirrels and black alligators are among the many wildlife species to keep an eye out for as you cruise along one of its many rivers or creeks.

Most of the lodges in the Peruvian Amazon can be found along the Tambopata River, within the Tambopata National Reserve, close to the border with Bolivia. This can be easily accessed via the airport in Puerto Maldonado, which has several daily flights from Cusco and Lima. From Puerto Maldonado you are transported by motorized canoe for several hours along the river to your chosen lodge.
