Overview

The Tapiche​ ​Reserve is a private Amazon rainforest conservation property based out of Iquitos, Peru. We believe jungle animals belong in their natural habitat in the wild, not domesticated or manipulated for human entertainment or mass consumption. We're dedicated to preserving primary forest and helping humans live in harmony with nature. Come stay at our jungle lodge, where researchers and nature enthusiasts marvel at the high density of wildlife on our property. The income we receive from visitors provides wages for locals whose alternatives are logging and poaching. You can be certain that you're making a difference. ​NOTE: there may be local scammers in Iquitos selling cheap rip-off tours using our good name. We are the only company that operates in our private property. Book directly through our website linked here on TA or at our office in Iquitos inside the Green Track Hostel. NEVER trust the street guides and vendors in Iquitos, for your own safety and well-being!

Hi, I will be traveling to Tapiche for the first time in April and am really excited to be with and photograph the wild life there. Any suggestions for camera lenses to bring would be greatly appreciated please. Currently, I have an olympus em-1 mkii with 12-40 f2.8, 40-150 f3.5-5.6, 12-100 f4, 100-400 f3.5-5.6, primes 12 f2, 25 f.18, 75 f1.8. In the spirit of keeping my back unherniated, I'm hoping to get away with carrying two zooms and one prime, but can't decide which lenses would be the most useful? A faster lens or one with more reach? Is it easy to change lenses on the fly there or is it rainy/humid enough consistently that changing lenses risks sensor damage? Just wanted to see what you lucky folks who have had a chance to visit Tapiche carried. Thanks in advance for any advice and happy travels everyone :).
