I had looked forward to my trip to the TRC for several years having had researched many locals and lodges. It did not disappoint. I saw many things I had not seen before at other lodges including cordycepts fungi fruiting bodies sprouting from a grasshopper and actual Jaguar tracks! Every day we saw monkeys in the canopy (four different species)... More

Dear Brian, Thanks for choosing Tambopata Research Center for this great trip to the Peruvian Amazon. You selected the right place. Because of its remote location in uninhabited wilderness housing stable populations of endangered wildlife, the small scale of its infrastructure and operations and the presence of researchers and naturalist guides like Edson, Tambopata Research Center is an excellent headquarters...

This is simply an amazing place. Definitely wilder and more remote than Refugio amazonas or any of the other accommodations on the Tambopata River. I loved being out in a remote area, I only wish I would have had more time so I wouldn't have spent so much time on a boat. I did the 4 day tour and I... More

We did the 4D3N Tambopata Research Center tour and it was very enjoyable. We had Ines as our guide and she was very experienced in the rainforest. As one example: we were walking through a trail, she suddenly said "stop... shhhh... wild pigs... follow me" before any of us realized there was anything around. She then brought us about 50m...

We LOVED our time at the TRC. It is an amazing place and we have many, many fantastic memories. Our guide was Frank. He was passionate about the ecology of the rainforest and really helped nurture our appreciation of this incredible environment. We travelled with our 10 year old daughter who is loves science and she was in HEAVEN. The... More

First a qualification: by some unearned stroke of good fortune, I ended up completely solo with my guide and the only other people at the center were a charming German couple who left the second day I was there...and then it was just me at the center. I could live in the rooms permanently. They are open on one wall... More

Our stay in the Amazon was the start of an amazing adventure. We could not fault the Tambopata research centre. Our guide Yuri was fantastic and so knowledgeable and helpful with photography. We saw such a lot of wildlife ( birds too many to name, otters, cayman, monkeys and the tarantulas and frogs - sadly no jaguar) and found the... More

September is the hottest month of the year in the Tambopata province. If visiting in September you are going to be sweating your butt off so be mentally prepared for this before you travel! Take long sleeves and lots of bug spray with a DEET content of 40% or greater no matter what time of the year you visit. Why... More
