Bolivia: The Bolivian Amazon

Visit Us

Most people know about the country’s Andean bowler hats and llamas but a third of Bolivia lies within the Amazon basin, albeit 1,000km from the river itself. Cut off from the highlands for centuries the frontier-feel settlements, savannah, swamps and rainforest have more in common physically and culturally with its neighbour, Brazil. Remote, scarcely populated and rarely visited it’s a region for real adventurers with some of the most bio-diverse rainforest on the planet.

It’s little known that the region has been the theatre for huge chapters of human drama, the vestiges of which remain. Wild tribes – fabled to have founded a sophisticated civilisation - repelled the conquistadores only to be subdued by Jesuit missionaries; later the rubber boom brought immense riches and sophisticated towns. Nowadays abandoned missions, railways, mansions and mills lie alongside vast cattle ranches; the cocaine business brought new prosperity for a few and now eco-tourism has spurred a revival.

What our experts say

The Bolivian Amazon region is still mostly only visited by adventurous backpackers, so few remote are the lodges accepting visitors. But this is not a bad thing: although loggers are now encroaching illegally on some of the pristine rainforest, it is still pretty much undisturbed as you venture further in, with an excellent chance of spotting wildlife on guided explorations. I'm off there in June 2015, so watch this space for an update..
