Wilderness Basecamp

Inkaterra Reserva Amazonica

Tambopata, Peru

Prices From: $492

An award-winning eco-lodge, Inkaterra Reserva Amazonica beckons from the steep banks of Peru’s meandering Madre de Dios River. Thirty-five solidly constructed thatched roof cabanas, built on raised platforms in the indigenous style, surround an architecturally stunning main building and dining room, built of native materials that blend almost seamlessly into the jungle. Luxurious furnishings and delectable food offer a congenial complement to the simplicity of lantern-light and the rich sounds of the jungle.

Tree-trunk boardwalks wind through the property, designed in the fashion of a native Ese’ Eja village overlooking the Madre de Dios, connecting cabañas with a pavilion that houses the dining room, as well as the bar and main lounge, plus balconies for bird watching and stargazing. The Eco-Media Center provides useful information to its guests, as well as a meeting point for excursions.

A visit to the tropical rainforest, is like entering another world. Two-thirds of all known plant and animal species make their home in these magic jungle regions, and hundreds of millions more are believed to be yet undiscovered. Butterflies flit all around — some sky-colored and big as saucers, others tiny with translucent wings of red lace. Bird song and raucous screeches pierce the thick air. But animals in this densely vegetated region tend to avoid human presence, meaning that opportunities for viewing them are variable and unpredictable.

The flora, however, are luxuriant and ever-present, with tangled vines, staggeringly tall trees, and leaves so huge they block the sun. There are engaging opportunities to experience the wonder of this diverse plant kingdom, to explore the lakes and wetlands, and to discover the rainforest ecosystems. The richness of the Amazon Basin also creates a spectacular arena for bird watching; more than 480 different bird species can be found here, including boisterous toucans, tanagers, fly catchers, and vibrant macaws.

General Information

Inkaterra Canopy Walkway

Inkaterra Canopy Walkway offers the unforgettable experience of walking through the tree tops of the giant Amazon Basin, across hanging bridges, observing several animal species not normally visible from the ground. Landscapes unimaginable from below and possible only from the air, are revealed on this network of bridges, towers and platforms.

With its camouflage design, the Inkaterra Canopy Walkway system is considered one of the most modern and sophisticated in the world. It has been carefully constructed by experts, using ecological materials to avoid negatively impacting the surrounding environment. Special cables and lateral nets, along with solidly constructed room-sized vertical towers, make it one of the world’s safest treetop bridges.
