The Tambopata National Reserve is a 275,000 hectare conservation unit created by the Peruvian government in 1990 to protect the watersheds of the Tambopata and Candamo rivers. It is adjacent to the huge 1 million hectare Bahuaja Sonene National Park. Both conservation units protect some of the last untouched lowland and premontane tropical humid forests in the Amazon. This Connecticut-sized area of pristine forest contains 600 bird species, 32 parrot species (10% of the world's total), 200 mammal species, 1200 butterfly species and over 10,000 species of vascular plants. Within Tambopata we will visit and stay in two lodges – Posada Amazonas and the Tambopata Research Center. They are a small part of the network of organizations and communities that are attempting to protect this amazing wilderness.
We will do some light hiking on this workshop. Hikes will typically be easy to moderate in their level of difficulty, although decent physical fitness will certainly facilitate your enjoyment of this workshop. Every participant must complete and sign a standard liability waiver and medical form before participating in this workshop.
Participants are required to get to Puerto Maldonado. To get to Puerto Maldonado, one usually must travel from Lima or Cusco first before reaching the Padre Aldamiz (PEM) airport in Puerto Maldonado.
A valid passport is required to enter and depart Peru. Tourists must also provide evidence of return or onward travel. Visit the Embassy of Peru Website for the most current visa information. Peru does not require any immunizations for entry, although it recommends vaccination against Yellow Fever.
