Peru is one of the birdiests countries in the world. Peru ties Colombia with over 1800 species of birds, more than 85% of which are permanent residents. Peru is second only to Brazil in the number of endemic birds and second only to Indonesia in the number of bird species with restricted geographical ranges. Several rainforest lodges in Peru offer superb birding, each with a list of over 550 species!
Peru is truly a land of superlatives: From the world’s richest oceanic current, to the world’s highest and most extensive tropical mountains, to the rainforests of the world’s largest river, Peru is a country of unparalleled diversity. With 87 of the world’s 104 climate zones, Peru encompasses both the driest desert and the second wettest locality on the planet.
the Peruvian Rainforest of Tambopata
The Tambopata Reserve the Tambopata Research Center (TRC) is an ideal setting for clients looking for a true nature experience in one of the last pristine bio-diverse rainforest left in the world.
During your birding program you will experience the trails and towers at three lodges. Posada Amazonas Lodge is located on the Ese’eja Native Community’s territory and is directly adjacent to the 1.5 million-hectare Tambopata-National Reserve in southeastern Amazonian Peru. With your English-speaking birding guide, you will explore and bird the many trails and observation areas in this pristine Amazonian rainforest.
Natural attractions include an oxbow lake, parrot and small macaw clay licks, small monkeys, and hundreds of bird species. The canopy tower provides easy access to one of the world’s final biological frontiers: the rain forest canopy.
Within the 700,000-hectare uninhabited nucleus of the Tambopata Reserve the Tambopata Research Center (TRC) is an ideal setting for clients looking for a true nature experience in one of the last pristine bio-diverse rainforest left in the world. Because of its remote location in a Connecticut-sized tract of uninhabited wilderness, it contains stable populations of endangered wildlife.
Refugio Amazonas Lodge is located in a 200-hectare private reserve within the buffer zone of the Tambopata National Reserve. Natural attractions include an oxbow lake, mammal clay licks, small monkeys, and hundreds of bird species. Refugio Amazonas also features a canopy tower.
