    Ask the experts

    I’m booked to stay at an Amazon lodge next month close to Puerto Maldonado in Peru, part of a 3-month trip so I really need to pack as light as possible. How do I pack the right things without going over the weight allowance?!

    Asked by Tim



    No need to panic, all Amazon lodges that we book will have an office at the airport so your guide will take you there to drop off any excess luggage – obviously it's a good idea to take another bag so you can separate the luggage you need to take with you from the items you want to leave behind. If for any reason the lodge does not have a luggage hold at the airport or an office nearby, you should be able to leave your belongings in a locker at your arrival hotel in Lima.

    I’ve stayed in most Amazon lodges in Peru and Ecuador, so I'd be more than happy to share my packing tips with you. For an Amazon stay you will find the following items invaluable:

    • Light, quick drying trousers
    • Light, long-sleeved tops
    • Insect repellent
    • A head torch (for night walks and lodges without electricity) is much better than a standard torch as it leaves both your hands free
    • Zip lock bags for equipment such as cameras should you be caught in a downpour
    • Sandals or flip flops to wear around the lodge. The lodge should provide wellington boots for muddy walks.
    • Light fleece, surprisingly – at certain times of the year the jungle can experience colder fronts that last a couple of days, so it’s not always hot and humid
    • Spare battery for cameras (although some lodges provide electricity, only a few points will be available and you will be using valuable power from the solar panels or generators)
    • Cash for bar drinks and tips for staff & guides
    • Binoculars (although many lodges may have one pair to loan per group, it's always good to have your own so you don’t miss out on any wildlife spotting)
    • Antibacterial hand wash
    • In many cases the lodges provide environmentally friendly toiletries so you don’t even need to bring those
    • And finally an adventurous appetite so you can try some local delicacies!
