(10 days / 9 nights)
Be part of what most people call “A Depth Experience” into the jungle, exploring the fascinating Tambopata region that harbors some of the most biodiverse rainforest in the country and possibly the entire Amazon basin. You will start witnessing the wondrous of this place when you get closer to land in Puerto Maldonado airport.
Tambopata is derived from two Quechua words, tambo which means “Inn” or “place of accomodation” and pata which means “high point”, and despite its Quechua name the region wasn`t really used by the Incans, it was first settled thousands of years ago by indigenous and Amazonian ethnies.
The Tambopata River watershed is one of the world’s richest ecosystems in terms of bioodiversity. The area features a major diversity of plant life, including forest species of economic importance such as cedar (Cedrela odorata) and mahogany (Swietenia macrophylla), and palm trees such as the pona (Iriartea ventricosa) and aguaje (Mauritia flexuosa), among others. The area is home to large numbers of giant river otters (Pteronura brasiliensis), an endangered species, as well as vulnerable species such as the anteater (Myrmecophaga tridactyla), the giant armadillo (Priodontes maximus), black spider monkey (Ateles paniscus), the jaguar (Panthera onca), pink river dolphin (Ajaija ajaja), the yellow-headed river turtle (Podocnemis unifilis) and the anaconda (Eunectes murinus).
