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!
