TAMBOPATA - CANDAMO - RESERVE

Tambopata

Situated on the banks of the the Tambopata river in the heart of the Tambopata-Candamo Reserve Zone (TCRZ), the remoteness and tranquility of our lodge makes for a richly rewarding visit to the rain forest.

The Tambopata-Candamo Reserve Zone is an immense 6,000 square kilometer protected area in the Southeastern state of Madre de Dios, Peru. Extensive surveys of the flora and fauna have been carried out up and down the Tambopata River valley revealing an incredible abundance of life forms. In fact the Southeastern rain forest of Peru is believed to be one of the most diverse ecosystems on the planet. Here it is possible to observe groups of rare animals such as the Giant Otter, Collared Peccary, Tapir, Anaconda, Jaguar, Ocelot, Horned Currasow, etc. Which still lead an otherwise undisturbed existence.

The avifauna of the reserve is particularly rich boasting an incredible 590 species more species than can be found in the whole continent of the USA!

The Tambopata Macaw Clay-Lick, the biggest of its kind in the world, is just a few hours up river from our lodge. The area is particularly interesting for bird lovers allowing close-up views of hundreds of colorful parrots and macaws. For more detailed information on the lick and the TCRZ please refer to: National Geographic Magazine, January 1994.
