Starting from Wasai Puerto Maldonado a boat drove us and some other guests to the Tambopata Lodge surrounded by jungle. On the way we saw turtles, capibaras and many birds. Only my friend and I booked the long tour (5 d / 4 n) which meant we had our private guide Manuel who turned out to be an extraorinary good... More

Firstly, if you come to this place expecting any common luxury, don't. It's not for you. This is an eco-lodge and that's exactly how you'll live when spending your time in Tampopata. Running water is a luxury here and you'll be sleeping under a mosquito net. Occasionally you may have an uninvited guest in your room. Ours happened to be... More

The lodge and activities was a great once-in-a-lifetime experience. About a 3 hour boat ride from Puerto Maldonaldo. The lodge is very close to jungle with the associated wildlife sharing - Agouti, snakes, spiders, armadillos...the works. The huts have bedding with mosquito nets, no fans and no power. The lights are solar and there is no hot water at all... More

It was a good jungle tour, but the price was too high for this place. There was no hot water, the food included was very, very basic. If you want something to dring, it is not included and you must wait a lot to receive it. Also the practice to ask full payment in advance by bank transfer was strange.... More

This expedition to the Amazon was a great adventure! They organized to pick us up and take us back to the Puerto Maldonado airport to the lodge for free. They then took us by boat to the lodge that was 4 hours down the Tambopata River. Our tour was led by Chemo who was very knowledgable and kind. He made... More

Up the river, in the heart of the Tambopata Candamo National Reserve, surrounded by National parks There are 20km of protected forest trails around the lodge, which enhances possibilities to see amazon wildlife.
