Tambopata 4 Day Tour
The Amazon rainforest in southern Peru is a biodiversity paradise.
The lack of communication routes, the ruggedness of these humid forests, the special climatic conditions and the almost nonexistence of men of Western culture have allowed the conservation of pristine territories, without alterations, with one of the highest rates of biological diversity in the world.
The Tambopata National Reserve and other protected natural areas, such as the Bahuaja Sonene National Park and the Manu National Park in Madre de Dios are privileged areas that are home to a great diversity of species of fauna and flora that have lived in harmony for thousands of years with native people.
