Book your Amazon rainforest tour in the Tambopata National Reserve, one of the world’s most biologically diverse areas. The reserve is located in the Peruvian Amazon close to Bolivia and is within relatively easy reach if you are visiting Machu Picchu and Cuzco before or after.
According to current estimates, the area is home to 160 species of mammals, at least 650 bird species, 1,200 butterfly species, over 150 species of amphibians and reptiles and approximately 100 fish species, as well as over 10,000 species of plants. Browse our wildlife section for information about some of the most emblematic species or read more about the Reserve itself.
In this area there are various Amazon rainforest lodges that offer their guests fascinating tours of the jungle, including trips around beautiful oxbow lakes to see amongst other wildlife, the endangered Giant River Otters that live here, visits to its world-famous parrot and macaw clay licks where hundreds of these beautiful birds flock every day, jungle expeditions, canopy tours and much, much more.
Bookings at these lodges include tours, accommodation, all meals and road and river transfers to and from the nearest airport in Puerto Maldonado:
