We really enjoyed our time at Tambopata. The trip up river was interesting and well worth the effort getting deeper into the jungle . The lodge was very open and airy, clean and comfortable. We had no issue with the bathroom facilities. The food was great and the staff really friendly and helpful. The jungle treks were really interesting and... More

We spent three nights at the Tambopata Reserve and only wish we could have stayed longer. It was an amazing experience and your contact with the surrounding wildlife is seconded to none. I definitely recommend making the effort to travel deeper into the jungle to TRC. We had visits from the Macaws to our room and they frequently entertained us... More

As parrot lovers we have long felt that the holy grail of seeing them in all of their splendor would be somewhere in the Amazon. Rainforest Expeditions was the right choice to trust our big Amazonian adventure to. Considering how remote Puerto Maldonado and TRC is, everything went off without a hitch. We saw dozens of parrots at a clay... More

Spent 5 days between Refugio Amazonas and the Research center upriver. Both lodges had very helpful staff, excellent food and lots of jungle activities. I especially enjoyed laying in the hammocks at the research center watching the wildlife. Our guide for the week did an excellent job getting us in and around the jungle while presenting us with lots of... More

This was a great experience. Our guide was Oscar and he was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. I would recommend a very good pair of binoculars (some people did not bring them and I think missed out) and if you are into photography a 400 mm lens. The lodge was very nice considering you're in the Amazon. Wonderful memories.

We have just returned from a three week holiday in Peru and Bolivia and are really pleased we went to TRC. The first night we stayed in Refugio Amazonas, which is around 4-5 hours downstream from TRC and about 2 hours from Peurto Maldonado. I wasn't that fussed with that lodge as it seems to have more groups and people... More

This was my first time to the Amazon and the 6 hour boat ride on the Tambopata River to the TRC provided the first look at this vast nature reserve. As beautiful as it is, the Amazon is under great stress and this is visible as you travel along this mighty tributary to the great Amazon River. In August when... More

Our family had a wonderful 5-day stay at the TRC. The lodge is very comfortable and the daily walks in the rainforest are simply amazing - wild animals, birds, and exotic insects. A photographers dream location. Our guide, Lenny, was extremely knowledgeable and most helpful. Truly an unforgettable experience for all the members of our family. The only downside was... More

The accommodations are a bit rustic and very fitting for the location and experience. My personal guide, Katherine, was fantastic and really made my stay, trekking and the entire visit most enjoyable. I went looking for a more remote adventure in the Peruvian Amazon and I got exactly what I wanted. From the excursions up the river to the various... More

This is the most remote lodge in the area, giving you the best shot at seeing wildlife. The staff are amazing, and you get a great peek into jungle living! It's not the most relaxing trip - you will be waking up early and exploring all day - but it will definitely be one of the most memorable you'll ever... More
