Reserve

Déforestation

 

The reserve is located in southeastern Peru in the Madre de Dios region along the Madre de Dios river. It is bordered by the famous local reserves of Tambopata and Bahuaja Sonene.  The interest of the reserve lies in the fact that it is situated in the world’s highest endemic biodiversity area, which makes every inch of the forest of inestimable value, mostly because of the presence of aguajales.

 

 

Not too long ago, this region was once one of the most preserved areas in South America. Unfortunately a road has since been built, connecting it to the rest of the country and doubling the rate of deforestation.
Due to this catastrophic reality, we have decided to fully commit ourselves to environmental protection.

 

Déforestation

 

It is a 30 minute flight from Cuzco (daily flights) to the nearest town of Puerto Maldonado.
We offer you this once-in-a lifetime opportunity to experience life on the outer reaches of civilization and science, in the depths of the forest.

Our reserve is made up of 90 % rainforest and flooded zones called aguajales* formerly occupied an Amerindian community. Bordered by Bolivia and Brazil, the reserve is near other native populations unharmed by the civilized world. The boat ride from Puerto Maldonado to the reserve ranges from 1-2 hours (depending on weight and boat motor).

 

 

Living in the rainforest is another way of life, requiring all senses and learning to open oneself to new horizons. It is best not to start with a preconceived idea, but to get acquainted with its own unique identity and local customs.

 

 

The climate in The Amazon is hot and humid. The mean temperature is 28, 30 degrees Celsius (82 to 86 Fahrenheit). The dry season runs from June to August, while the wet (rainy) season begins around October and lasts until March or April. Due to the proximity of the Andes, cold spells may arise throughout the dry season for very short periods (2-3 days). If you are planning your trip with us in the dry season, be sure to pack a few warm clothes!
