We wanted to see the Bolivian Amazon and tried to figure out which agencies are still running. After a few disappointments we found Madidi Jungle and Alex was always quick and easy to respond. Communication beforehand and also during the trip was just excellent! Alex even helped us organise our night-bus tickets from La Paz because we wanted to get on the bus somewhere along the route. We arrived in Rurre surprisingly early (4.30AM) and despite the ungodly hours Alex made sure we got picked up by a TukTuk as soon as he was awake and after the exhausting ride on the bus we could also relax for a bit at their office. We booked a 4D/3N Madidi tour with them and a 2D/1N Pampas tour and both was amazing! Food (vegetarian) on both tours was delicious and always freshly prepared by staff. In the Jungle we had two amazing different guides (Juan Carlos and Alejandro) and felt like we learnt a lot with them! Same for the Pampas tour with our guide Norman. In the Jungle don’t expect to see too many animals (the area is just too big for that) that’s why the mix with the Pampas was great. Accommodation in both places is good- in the Pampas ours was a bit more basic because we just stayed for one night. The Lodge in the jungle is great (we had a private bathroom-worth it!). Generally it was really interesting to learn about an Indigenous-led company and we truly enjoyed all the interesting discussions we had with the guides and also with Alex! All in all just an amazing experience which we can only recommend! Please continue doing what you do& keep on protecting Madidi because it for sure is a treasure!

We had a wonderfull stay in the Madidi jungle ecolodge. Service (guides, service team, cooks,...) is really high level. Although it was in the middle in the jungle, our cabin (with bathroom) was very clean. Food was from high quality. But the real highlight was offcourse the jungle itself. Our guide, Alejandro, has an icredible amount of knowledge about plants/animals and we learned a lot from him. We were lucky to see monkeys every day and even just next to our cabin. What a great experience and we recommend this tour/ecolodge to everyone!

My third experience at the different countries rainforests and it was amazing. I stay 6 days and I see a lot of birds, monkeys, insects....My guide Alejandro has a perfect knowledge of rain forest and if I will go again this place, I will take him again. But the biggest surprise was the food. As a restaurant owner, I can say that the young cook Jason Gonzales is a perfect cook! I was very surprise how he can cook such a almost perfect meals in this circumstances! Some tips; If you arrived at lodge after some empty period without clients, you can hear a lot of birds, insects, frogs, monkeys voices just before sunset and sunrise at the very first day, because after that they start to go further of the lodge little by little and I advise to record this voices, it's amazing. If it did rain at the afternoon, go to night walk and start morning trek as soon as possible, 5.00 - 6.00 am.

This is a lovely place to stay, clean, nice friendly staff keen to please and food is fresh. However, there are absolutely no animals left. All hunted all gone... it is such a sad reality that the only things to see are ants, some birds, lots of trees and enjoy the heat.

HIGHLY recommend. From Rurrenabaque, they take you on a three hour boat ride up to the lodge. The lodge is completely run by one indigenous community of 130 families who live in the park-the only Amazonian community in Bolivia who are descendants of the Incas. Our guide Ronny was WONDERFUL and so so knowledgeable (and also a member of the community). In three days we went on multiple jungle walks, saw tons of animals, caught piranhas, saw (and got to feed) a caiman, went on a night walk, made traditional crafts, and went tubing down the Beni river (a tributary of the Amazon). Really can’t say enough good things about this place.

We went on a 3 day/2 night trip with Madidi Jungle Eco Lodge and had an amazing time. We were looked after from start to finish. We were picked up from the airport the day before our trip started and dropped off at our hostel. We were picked up the next morning and taken to the office, to meet our guide and make our way to the boat. On arriving at the Eco Lodge, we were greeted and shown to our room, which were clean and protected from Mosquitos. The food throughout the whole trip was tasty and creative, especially for being pescatarian, the catfish was exceptional. Peter our guide was fun and informative throughout the whole trip, and made our experience even better. We enjoyed seeing monkeys, birds and many other animals/insects on our walks and enjoyed tubing down the river. We would definitely recommend this company, without question.

We payed a bit extra for a non share bathroom...not that we ever got any hot water but it really didnt matter. Going to sleep in a cabin in the middle of the amazon jungle, with the noises of the animals and birds so close by, very good meals, knowing that the whole project is run by an indigenous community, a wonderful guide for the many walks in the jungle, spotting monkeys, prehistoric birds, caymen, made it all a memorable experience. Congrats to the management and thank you for a wonderful time. Rocking in the hammocks for an afternoon siesta, no electricity but soft candlelight at night, all very special. Highly recommended.

My partner and I booked a 2 night/3 day tour and we couldn’t be happier with our experience. Our guide for most of the trip was Choco, and what a legend he was. A true lover of all animals, his country and the conversation work at the reserve. The ecolodges are built with Mosquito net walls, allowing you to see and sleep almost in the jungle. The showers are cold but it’s expected. The volunteers and staff were amazing. The chef cooked delicious meals and kept us well fed with energy for all the big walks. I tried a night walk and it was intense to see the least (I’m a little scared of hand sized tarantulas..) We caught Piranhas and saw monkeys all around. I would highly recommend this Jungle tour.

We had a wonderful stay at Madidi Jungle. The lodge, situated in the middle of the jungle, is peaceful, clean and well maintained (no hot water in June 2019, but it was hot enough outside!). Food was excellent. Though, the best part of the experience was our very knowledgeable and funny guide Norman: we didn't book a private tour, but in any case we had Norman just for the two of us!! As far as we have seen, they tend to assign a guide to very small groups so to facilitate wildlife spotting, clear explanations and interactions with the guide. We had the impression that all guides were knowledgeable and nice. I think that if you speak Spanish the experience is probably more "authentic and personal" as you can easily engage in long conversation with all people working at Madidi Jungle (not only the guide) and for us that was as much part of the experience as the walks in the jungle. Madidi Lodge is a project run by an indigenous community so if you decide to visit the jungle with them you will also contribute to the SUSTAINABLE wellbeing of the community (ask questions about the community: it is very interesting!!!). IT IS THE SAME COMMUNITY THAT OWNS CHALALAN ECOLODGE AND MANY OF THE PEOPLE CURRENTLY WORKING AT MADIDI JUNGLE HAVE PREVIOUSLY WORKED AT CHALALAN. If you are interested, they can also organize pampas tours: it is done through the agency "Madidi Expeditions" which is an extension of the operations of Madidi Jungle (I.e. it is the same community running it, except they use a different name....a bit confusing). We did the pampas tour as well and we loved it: the accommodation was not at the level of Madidi Lodge, but still comfortable and clean. Food was amazing and most importantly we were alone with Norman. SUPER RECOMMENDED!!!

We stayed in this lodge 3D/2N and have just come back 2 weeks ago so it is still fresh in our memories :) It was amazing place far away from everything, right in the middle of the jungle, 3 hours by boat from Rurrenabaque. Our guide Alejandro was fantastic, very knowledgeble, about the jungle ecosystem and all animals etc. We have managed to see many different species of animals, including tucan, parrots, cayman, tarrantula spider, capibara and many other. Kids enjoyed stay in Madidi a lot and already miss this place with amazing climate and fantastic atmosphere. Alejandro is really local person with right attitude to tourists, trying to share at least a fraction of his extremely wide knowledge about the jungle in a very comprehensive way. Again, thanks again for our stay ! We recommend this to all families with small kids. It will for sure be a wonderful experience and nice journey with some close ups to a real nature ! So folks, do not hesitate, go ahead. Warm regards to Alejandro and all team at the lodge !
