The Peruvian Amazon (south): Tambopata Research Centre

Visit Us

Tambopata Research Centre

The Tambopata Research Centre is set within the dense vegetation of the Bahuaja Sonene National Park, a short boat ride from the world's largest macaw clay lick. On clear mornings the clay lick is visited by up to six species of parrot and throngs of parakeets, which feed on the mineral rich soil, creating an agitated spectacle of colour and sound.

The lodge is made entirely of natural materials, from the bamboo walls to the palm-thatched roofs. Everything is within one single-storey structure, which makes for an intimate and friendly atmosphere. Bedrooms are completely exposed to the elements on one side, save for a wooden railing, and interior spaces are divided by cotton curtains rather than doors. 

Comforts are basic, but in many ways this enhances your appreciation of, and is in keeping with, the natural environment of the Amazon. Cold water showers and toilets are indoors but communal. There is only electricity in the main public areas at lunch and dinner times, but kerosene lamps are provided and there are candles in each room. Meals are self-service and guests eat with the guides.

With stops at the Refugio Amazonas en route, a stay here ensures a remarkable jungle experience. The secluded location in pristine, uninhabited rainforest affords excellent opportunities for wildlife viewing.
