In the heart of the Amazon, the world’s oldest jungle dates back 75 million years. Peru’s Tambopata National Reserve consists of 3.7 million acres of jungle.
Home to over 1,000 species of butterflies, more than 100 species of mammals, around 600 species of birds, this is one of the most biodiverse places on the planet
Tambopata National Reserve was protected in 1990 by the national government, working in conjunction with local and international conservation groups. Today there are a range of luxury and authentic jungle lodges to expore the wonders of the Amazon rainforest. Thanks to direct flights to Puerto Maldonado from Cusco and Lima, access to the best lodges in the reserve is easy. You really don’t have to travel far to be stood under towering trees and spot birds from treetop canopy walkways. Those who venture deeper into the Amazon can stay at Tambopata Research Center – the most remote lodge in the area.
