Covering one third of Peru is the magnificent Amazon jungle, the most biodiverse rainforest on the planet. Containing some of the world’s most pristine areas of natural beauty, you can now experience the wonder of the jungle for yourself.
GOOD TIME TO VISIT: April to September
On the banks of Peru’s Madre de Dios River, deep in the Amazon rainforest is the Tambopata-Candamo Reserve. You can discover the amazing flora and fauna of this private 10,000-hectare reserve when you stay at the award-winning Inkaterra Jungle Lodge.
There are 8km of trails winding through the jungle that surrounds the lodge and the dramatic Canopy Walks take visitors on a thrilling journey high above the rainforest. Witness a multitude of tropical birds at dawn and then later board a dugout canoe for a paddle across the still waters of Lake Sandoval. Or perhaps board a small boat to visit Monkey Island, a private sanctuary housing six species of monkey.
You can also spot native fauna such as macaws and other parrots as well as turtles, piranhas and maybe a giant Amazonian river otter. You can explore the hidden depths of the jungle in search of one of the 3,800 species of butterfly and a along the way, look for hundreds of bird species found in this area such as blue-headed parrots, jabirus, and wood storks. World-class accommodation, excellent guided excursions and a friendly welcome await you in Peru’s beautiful rainforest region.
