Posada Amazonas - The Jungle eco-lodge in Tambopata

Posada Amazonas

Since opening in 1998, Posada Amazonas has prided itself on being the most authentic eco-lodge in Peru. Half-owned by the indigenous Ese-Eja community, the lodge was designed and built by and with the community, and is situated within the community's 2,000 hectare private reserve, adjacent to the Tambopata Reserve.

As well as its superb eco-lodge credentials, Posada Amazonas offers all that you could wish for in the way of wildlife. From oxbow lakes with Giant Otters and caiman, to clay licks with attendant flocks of parrots and macaws, you'll be kept both busy and amazed during your stay.

All 30 rooms offer private ensuite facilities and the communal areas are large and spacious. Although lighting is provided by kerosene lamps, a generator provides electricity to recharge batteries and other electronic equipment. With comfortable rooms, superb eco credentials and incredible wildlife on the doorstep, it's no surprise that Posada Amazonas has been rated highly by the likes of Conde Nast and the Guild of British Travel Writers.

Sample Itinerary

Travel to Posada Amazonas Day One - Into the jungle

This morning we will pick you up and take you to the airport to catch a flight down into the jungle, to Puerto Maldonado. From here we will take you on a 40 minute journey down the Madre de Dios River by motor canoe, at the end of which is the Posada Amazonas lodge. We will have a short briefing session on arrival and then walk out to the lodge’s private canopy tower, from where you have amazing birds-eye views of the rainforest. We will then walk back to the lodge by a longer route, so the expert local guides can explain more about the amazing flora and fauna of the rainforest.

Posada Amazonas Day Two - Posada Amazonas

After breakfast this morning, we will head out by boat from the lodge, and then have a short walk through the primary forest before we reach the Tres Chimbadas oxbow lake. As we paddle across the lake, we will be keeping an eye out for the resident families of giant otters, and other lakeside wildlife such as caimans, the prehistoric-looking hoatzins, and a huge variety of birdlife. Our destination is one of the largest parrot clay licks in the Amazon basin. From a specially-constructed blind, you will be able to see dozens of parrots and parakeets, from many different sub-species descend on the clay lick to supplement their fruit diet with the clay minerals.

After lunch, we will head by boat downriver to a special trail designed by the staff of the Centro Ñape – a specialist medical centre dedicated to producing medicines from rainforest plants, using the knowledge of local peoples. We will then head back to the lodge for dinner, before our optional night walk out into the jungle, which gives you a fantastic opportunity to see many of the more elusive jungle denizens...

Back to Lima Day Three - Last Day in the Jungle

After an early breakfast it’s time to head back to the river for a final chance to spot some of the local wildlife before returning to Puerto Maldonado to catch the lunchtime flight out of the jungle.
