OVERVIEW

Tambopata Research Centre is the most remote lodge in the Amazon. There are no humans nearby so sightings of monkeys, macaws and other large species become more frequent. Jaguars are sometimes seen near the river bank! Tambopata Research Centre is an excellent headquarters for in depth explorations of Amazonian nature and wildlife because of its remote location in uninhabited wilderness housing stable populations of endangered wildlife, the small scale of its infrastructure and operations and the presence of researchers and naturalist guides. Choose from a range of stays from 2 nights or more. Contact us for details. 

The Rainforest Expeditions Experience

Rainforest Expeditions has three properties nestled in the Peruvian Amazon. The extensive list of expeditions offer immersion in nature and local culture exchange aimed at providing a comprehensive experience of the rainforest. By staying at one of these three properties, you can make a meaningful contribution to sustainable efforts in preserving and protecting pristine land, wildlife populations and locals. Guests benefit from knowledgeable guides who provide an in-depth understanding of life in the rainforest of Tambopata. Enjoy an open wall facing the rainforest and awake with the sounds of jungle. Properties include Refugio Amazonas, Posada Amazonas & Tambopata Research Centre. 

Highlights Include:
Two Macaw Clay Licks – A trip to the Tambopata Research Centre includes a visit to the two most important clay licks in the region: Colorado and Chuncho. Visit these special portions of river bank while macaws and parrots make a raucous and colourful spectacle which inspired a National Geographic cover story.
Jaguar Sighting – The four and half hour boat ride from Refugio Amazonas to Tambopata Research Centre is your best chance for a jaguar sighting. 
5 Distinct Pristine Habitats – Close and easy hikes to bamboo, flood plain, terra firma, palm and riverine rainforest habitats.
Macaw Research and Conservation – Much ground breaking macaw conservation research has been carried out from the Centre and you are likely to have the chance during your stay to talk with macaw biologists, ecologists and other experts staying at the Research Centre while they do fieldwork.
Canopy Tower – During your stopover at Refugio Amazonas you will be able to climb the 30 metre scaffolding tower for expansive views of the rainforest and sightings of colourful toucans and parrots against a green backdrop.
