Baawaja Expeditions - Ñape Lodge, is a private company, owned by the Native Community of Infierno in Tambopata. It was founded at the end of 2008, with the mission of promoting eco-tourism, research, activities related to the conservation of the Amazon through Tours in Tambopata, in order to raise awareness among our visitors about the importance of conservation of the culture, flora and fauna of our region. The community is composed of ethnic populations and differentiated indigenous groups, such as Ese-Eja. The community is located in the city of Puerto Maldonado, province of Tambopata, southeast of Peru; precisely between the banks of the TAMBOPATA River (in the local native language Ese Eja, known as BAAWAJA). To visit the community in its splendor, you can make one of our tours and stay at an Eco Lodge or one of the most comfortable Bungalows or Tourist Hostels that Baawaja Expeditions puts at your disposal. Tambopata awaits you!

Stayed here as part of a group. Rooms are lovely, clean and spacious. The facilities are basic but you are in the Amazon jungle.The food was great, very fresh and tasty. Staff are wonderful so helpful. Just make sure to bring powerbank and torch with you as there is only electricity at certain times of the day and lights go out bdtwen 21.00 and 21.30. Highly recommend this lodge.

We stayed here at the end of September 2019 and what an experience!! Please don’t go expecting the Hilton this is a jungle eco lodge and that is exactly the experience you will get. José was our tour guide who was fantastic and took us on several amazing excursions. We saw baby cayman, monkeys, capybara, all the birds and so much more. For where the lodge is located, the service and food is incredible. The staff are superb and very friendly. Even when our flight was cancelled 8 hours after our trip had ended, Baawaja came to make sure that we were ok and even escorted us to the hotel that the airline put us up in. They truly went above and beyond.

This lovely lodge is run by the indigenous community, Infierno, on the Tambopata River, and offers an up close experience of the Amazon basin jungle. There is hot water, you just have to wait for about 4 mins. They got wifi about a month ago, although I prefer no wifi! Our guide, Ederson, was fabulous! He has extensive knowledge of the area, the plants, animals, ecosystem, and culture. We didn't see the giant river otters at the lake, but got to do piranha fishing while we were waiting. The cabins have one wall open to the jungle and the wall between the units in a double cabin are not to full ceiling height. This was not a problem for us at all. The activities were amazing, included... canopy tower climb, night walk, night caiman viewing, capybara search, medicinal plant walk, farm visit, clay lick for macaws, parrots and parakeets, plus a jungle walk in which we were lucky to spot wild peccaries crossing our path. We found this 4-day stay to be one of the most memorable parts of our 26 day visit to South America!

There are both good and bad here. Lets talk about the good part. The staff are very friendly and accommodate you. Good activities and tour guides too. Great local food cooked fresh. The chef is amazing Now coming to the staying part. On day 1 when we arrived we were not even given towels for 1 day, they just didn't have them. The next day after a struggle, they were able to give us towels, when we checked them out, they were either not properly washed or were given used towels. No hot water for 3 days. And also no power after 9. Initially we thought it might be the norm there but after talking with couple of friends who stayed at Rainforest and Inketerra, they had a 3 hr power cut in the morning never in the night and were given hot water. in the end we felt like can't trust anyone there.

We stayed at the Ñape lodge 2 nights and it was the highlight of our trip to Perù! It felt like we were right in the middle of the Amazon Jungle! The main building of the lodge is stunning and we were welcomed by the manager Victor with cold drinks and cold towels after the boat trip on the Tambo Pata from Puerto Maldonado. The room was just perfect and I wasn’t expecting such comfort in such a remote area! We also had a lovely visit during the day from a friendly capibara! So cute! The staff is super professional and friendly, food was excellent and I can’t remember a single occasion when they weren’t smiling! I also celebrated my birthday here at Nape Lodge, and the fantastic place, along with the thoughtful organisation of a surprise celebration, made it a very special day that I won’t forget!

We spent 4 days and 3 nights here at Nape Lodge and enjoyed it all. The communal area with the restaurant and bar was a great place to sit or to enjoy a hammock experience. The room was great and has been described accurately in other reviews - three walls and one side open to the elements which allowed the room to cool down. We were lucky to have a room without a neighbour so there was no issue with noise, but it could be a problem in those rooms that adjoin another. The three meals a day were tasty and the service was great - thanks Victor and Wilbert and other staff. We were lucky to join with another group so we had 5 guests with 2 guides - this was good as one guide was excellent and had binoculars and a telescope with him - thanks JuanCarlos for sharing with us. The other guide did not have the same equipment so if we had not been sharing we would have not had the same experience - the telescope was amazing for bird watching. The walks were great and the lodge provide gumboots which was good for the very wet and muddy areas throughout the rainforest. I would recommend the company and the lodge for this type of trip.

Fantastic! Guides (Luis Coneñas an Allan) Special thanks to Louis! A Guide That's Absolutely Skillful. ( I miss him). Maximum friendly staff. Exelent food.   I would recommend Nape Lodge. Nobody can be disappointed! Nice rooms, best service, nice and clean. You can walk on narrow trails in the jungle. The guide stops and tells about the animals being heard. The whole day mixes hundreds of sounds. Monkeys and parrots (Macaw) are heard screaming most of all animals. There are many insects but they are not dangerous. We saw no mosquitoes and other annoying insects besides a wasp. The wasp is harmless but you should avoid touching it.

Nape Lodge is run by the Infierno native community: they've discovered that their local rainforest earns more as a tourist attraction than it would turned into farms, which means that by staying you help save the rainforest and help the local community as well, a win-win situation. It is a beautiful place, built in the traditional style (i.e., raised above the ground, with an open space under the roof and one wall missing to keep it cool), right out in the jungle and accessible only by boat. There is no hot water (not that you want any, in that heat!) and power is supplied by a generator on site for about six hours a day (enough to charge your devices). Meals are provided, and are tasty (I particularly liked the catfish) but alcoholic drinks are extra. We were provided with a guide, Victor, who was absolutely superb--a very keen naturalist, who not only spotted all sorts of wildlife we would have walked blindly past, but was able to identify it and tell you all about its life and habits. We saw endangered giant otters swimming happily in a beautiful lake, a flock of about forty red and green macaws on a clay lick; we coaxed tarantulas from their dens, saw caimans muddy-jawed by the river at night and saddle-backed tamarins and squirrel monkeys dashing through the trees in the day; we saw gorgeous toucans, trogons, and parrots; there were butterflies by day and fireflies by night. Victor at one point showed me 'as a gift' a potou bird nesting disguised as a branch in a tree near the lodge, with its tiny chick's head sticking out from its breast feathers--and, God, that was a present to remember! I am very grateful for all the marvels he showed us, and still overwhelmed when I think about it. It was the trip of a lifetime. Thank you!

We stayed 3 nights and 4 days - the rooms were good, apart from the we were in a block of two and the middle wall does not go up to the ceiling, so you can hear everything from our neighbours, even things that should not be heard. There was no hot water, but it was refreshing to have a cold shower. The food was good and the service was excellent. My major problem was our guide, Hugo - it felt as though he no longer enjoyed his job and it was a real chore for him to be guiding us. At the end of the trip he just wanted to get rid of us, and I was glad to leave. The sad thing was - we heard from other guests what great guides they had and that some of their experiences were amazing.

We stayed here for 2 nights and it was great. So peaceful with only the sound of insects and animals to put you to sleep and wake you up again. We had a guide named Victor take us out on a night walk and during the day he took us up the river and pointed out the animals and birds. The staff at the lodge were very helpful too. No hot water but running water- worth the sacrifice for a couple of days .
