Tour Details

Our four days tour to Peru Tambopata National Reserve with an English-speaking local naturalist guide is designed to offer you an extensive insight into the wildlife and traditions of South American natives in the Amazon.

Tambopata National Park is home to countless histories, distinct species of birds, plants, and animals. Most of which you will be spotting while on a guided jungle hike. 

Tambopata Nature Reserve houses the stunning Oxbow Lake.

They are a small body of water located in an abandoned meander loop of a channel. One of the unmissable activities on a tour in Tambopata is seeing the Parrot’s nests. Tambopata has the largest clay lick in the world.

Hundreds of vibrantly colored Parrots fly to the cliff to eat the clay every morning. These clays contain distinct minerals that help them to detoxify their bodies.

Tambopata’s diversity in wildlife is highly credited to its location by many environmentalists. The National Park nestles at the confluence of lowland Amazon Jungle and three other ecosystems.
