Amazon ToursEnjoy your rainforest travel experience by walking the banks of the meandering Madre de Dios River. Wake to a symphony of tropical birdsong, end your days by lantern light and fall asleep to the gentle sounds of the Amazon rainforest. Exotic yet accessible, Reserva Amazonica Lodge is situated in a private reserve adjacent to Tambopata National Park in the southern Peruvian Amazon Basin. Guided walks by day and night will help you discover some of the 1,000 flora species, 300 butterfly species and more than 300 bird species that make their home here. Thirty-five private thatched roof cabanas offer simple comfort and feature screened porches and hammocks, tropical ceiling fans, warm water showers, lantern light, low-impact electricity, organic bath products, robes and slippers.

Available only with the Air Inclusive Package.

Day 1 - Peruvian Amazon

Breakfast will start at 5:00 am and continue until 10:00 am. Today, you can enjoy an excursion to Lake Sandoval. After a 30-minute boat ride to the Tambopata National Reserve, wildlife surrounds you during a 1 ½ - hour walk along two miles of trails to reach the lake. Then glide in a wooden canoe across a beautiful, mirror-like, oxbow lake that is home to the endangered giant river otter, as well as red howler monkeys, macaws, prehistoric hoatzins, anacondas, point-tailed palm creepers and side-neck turtles. Spend two hours on the lake enjoying all that it has to offer.

After lunch, discover the Inkaterra Canopy Walkway & Anaconda Walk. A five-minute boat ride takes you to the Inkaterra Canopy Interpretation Center. After ascending the first tower, at 95 feet above the forest floor, you will literally walk through the treetops for 1 ½ - half hours along suspension bridges that link eight observation platforms. Enjoy landscapes and vistas that would be unimaginable from below, while on the look-out for giant strangler fig trees, orchids, toucans, woodpeckers, trogons and –with luck- monkeys or sloths. After your descent from the Canopy, experience the Anaconda Walk for about 30 minutes along the 760-foot long wooden bridge over the Aguajales swamps. In this lush ecosystem, you may observe the various species of amphibians, birds and mammals along with the abundant flora of this flooded marshland. The walk finishes by returning to the lodge. 

Dinner is in the main dining room tonight. Then to sleep among the sounds of the Amazon!

Day 2 - Peruvian Amazon Extension departs for home

After breakfast, spend the morning relaxing. You may purchase a snack or lunch at the Lodge, but the Lodge will need to know by 10:00 am of that morning if you wish to do so. You may also choose to wait and purchase a sandwich at the Butterfly House upon your return to Puerto Maldonado.

In the early afternoon, transfer by boat and van to the Puerto Maldonado airport for your flight home via Lima. Upon arrival, check in to comfortable rooms for day use. Tonight, dinner is at your leisure before returning to the airport for flights departing in the late evening.

Day 3 - Peruvian Amazon Extension arrives home

Flights arrive in the U.S. this morning, allowing for connections.
