Tambopata Jungle Expeditions; Our Tambopata Rainforest tours consist of engaging activities that blend aspects of nature and culture in the Peruvian Amazon in the jungle. Our Amazon Lodges connect guests to the vast and remote wilderness of the Tambopata National Reserve without sacrificing comfort or accessibility. At each one of our Amazon lodges we invest like guest revenues in rainforest conservation and sustainable development in jungle trips peruvian.

Tambopata Jungle Expeditions in Peru, as it has happened in the most diverse countries of the world, the study of the natural characteristics of most ecosystems has not been superficial and short periods of time. Therefore, we can not fail to highlight those very few Peruvian areas in which a long and deep process of evaluation and research has been carried out with Tambopata Jungle Expeditions.

One of these areas is the former Tambopata Reserved Zone, in southeastern Peru, where the private initiative, through the company Peruvian Safaris SA, has stimulated and supported, for about 17 years, the development of biological research by students and scientists from around the world – Tambopata Jungle Expeditions.

The UNALM Data Center for Conservation (CDC-UNALM), whose mission is to fundamental is to collect and manage information on the natural diversity of the country, to contribute to the processes of natural resource management, decided to develop a series that disseminates knowledge accumulated in places highlighted by its biodiversity tambopata tours. The Manu Report, published in 1986, was the first in the series. Now – 3 years after having conceived and started it -; the CDC-UNALM submits the Tambopata Report as a result of the cooperation between the private sector, the government and the scientific community – Tambopata Jungle Expeditions.

This second publication is the compilation and presentation in the form of summaries of scientific documents, the product of research carried out in the area of the 5,500 hectares that make up the former Reserved Zone of Tambopata. The collection of documents has been made through searches in various places in the country, such as Lima, Cusco and Puerto Maldonado, direct or written requests to researchers and collaborations of contacts in Peru and abroad. In order to ensure that this publication has the maximum possible scope, it has been chosen in two languages, Spanish and English, which is the first experience of this type for the CDC-UNALM – Tambopata Jungle Expeditions.

The Tambopata Report collects documents produced from 1979 to 1994, considering subjects related to fauna, flora and soils, as well as lists of species of flora and fauna – tambopata lodge. To this is added a directory of researchers and contacts to which users can refer in the need to expand a specific topic. It should be noted that the development of new research does not stop, so we hope to be able to prepare, after a few years, the second volume of research in Tambopata tours.

Tambopata Jungle Expeditions in Peru

The former Tambopata Reserved Zone (TRZ), in the department of Madre de Dios (southeastern Peru), is located in the confluence of the La Torre and Tambopata rivers, approximately 60 kilometers from Puerto Maldonado city – tambopata lodge tour operator.

In 1977 the Ministry of Agriculture, through Ministerial Resolution 001-77-AG, established this Reserved Zone on an extension of 5,500 hectares, entrusting its custody and administration to Peruvian Safaris S.A.. A year earlier, this company had built the Explorer’s Inn lodge in an area of three hectares at the north of the zone previously reserved – lodge tambopata macaw clay lick jungle expeditions.

Little was known in those years about natural diversity in this area but a first approximation was enough to think that the zone were a region of particular natural richness. Preliminary studies carried out by John O’Neill, Theodore Parker III and Robert Ridgely, on the birds that occur in those forests, revealed promising results: an exceptionally rich bird diversity like in very few places on earth – lodge tambopata macaw clay lick jungle expeditions.

Subsequent investigations confirmed this first appraisal. In the TRZ, there is a world record: the 5,500 hectares reserved area host 545 bird species -more species than any other place in the world. This number is only comparable with that registered around Cocha Cashu (in the lowland area of Manu National Park): 530 species in 4,500 hectares – lodge tambopata macaw clay lick jungle expeditions.

Other biodiversity world records in Tambopata are: 1,122 species of butterflies (Lamas 1985), 151 of dragonflies (Paulson 1985), 97 species of Asilidae family (Fisher 1985), 73 of horse-flies (Wilkerson & Fairchild 1985) and 29 of tiger beetles (Pearson 1985) – lodge tambopata macaw clay lick jungle expeditions.

The existence of the Explorer’s Inn’s “Resident Naturalists Program” has been very important for the development of abundant and valuable research endeavors. Since its inception, almost simultaneously with the beginning of the tourism operations in the lodge, has attracted national and foreign researchers’ attention, who have developed investigations on a variety of plants and animals as well as on the ecological processes that there occur. As an example, Terry Erwin and collaborators collected so many new arboreal species of insects in very short periods of time obtaining solid arguments to confirm and sustain the theory of the existence of at least 30 million different species on earth – lodge tambopata macaw clay lick jungle expeditions.

Regarding the variety of landscapes, Erwin (1985) identified at least seven types of forest for this small rainforest extension, suggesting that the diversity around the Explorer’s Inn may be caused by its location in the transition of tropical and subtropical regions and to high soil heterogeneity. Among the non-flooded forests the following types have been identified: terra firme forest (type 1 and 2) and white-sand forest. Among the seasonally flooded forests: swamp forest type 1, lower floodplain forest and upper floodplain forest (both of white waters), as well as two of doubtful existence for Erwin (1985): lower floodplain and upper floodplain forests (both of black waters). Finally, among the permanent flooded forests he identifies the presence of swamp forest type 2 – lodge tambopata macaw clay lick jungle expeditions.

In January of 1990, a large region between the departments of Madre de Dios and Puno was put aside as a protected area: the Tambopata-Candamo Reserved Zone (1’478,942.5 hectares). This Reserved Zone includes most of the former TRZ and practically the whole Tambopata river basin. Currently, there is a proposal in the Ministry of Agriculture to create a National Park (Bahuaja-Sonene) in a large part of this territory; the Explorer’s Inn area, however, is not included – lodge tambopata macaw clay lick jungle expeditions.

The fact of finding five or six wildlife diversity records not only means that Tambopata is an exceptionally rich place in biological species – at least in the Explorer’s Inn area – but one of the most intensively investigated in Latin America and in the world (see for example Erwin 1985 and other titles of the volume 27 of the Revista Peruana de Entomología). It is necessary to include this portion of the national territory within some permanent protected area category, with the objective of assure the long-term viability of this valuable natural patrimony  – tambopata lodge tour operator.
