We work work hard to limit our environmental impact on the indigenous cultures
of Tambopata and work together with local naturalist guides with many years of
guiding experience in Tambopata. Most of the guides have grown up in Tambopata
and have been working (in research projects) and living in the rainforest; They
are very experienced in wildlife spotting, recognizing birds and mammals by
sound and sight. They can imitate the animals to call them closer, as well as
giving you the scientific names of the animals we see. We use binoculars and
telescopes so that you can get a closer view of the animals.
Our guides are bilingual
(English/Spanish) and on request we can provide guide tours in German.
Andean Enjoy Perú offers tours from Cusco to the Tambopata National Park or to
the Tambopata BioStation, a private reserve adjacent to the National Park. - A

reserve in 1977; in 1987 it was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, due to
the world's highest biodiversity in Tambopata. It is one of the largest and most
important conservation units of the world, it protects an entire virgin
watershed, covering altitudinal ranges from 200 m to 4100 m above sea level.

•Why go to Tambopata ?
Tambopata is situated away from civilisation and is one of the world's great
wilderness areas where wildlife is still undisturbed and plentiful. Tambopata's
primary rainforest offers an extraordinarily high wildlife density and – more
important for the visitor - : big-mammal and macaw salt licks where the animals
concentrate and it is easy to observe them. Some birds are endemic to this area
as e.g. Rufous Fronted Antthrush (Formicarios rufifrons), Black-faced Cotinga (Conioptilon
mcilhennyi), Tambopata Antbird (Cercomacra Tambopata) and White Cheeked Tody
Tyrant (Poecilotriccus albifacies).

• Why go to BioStation and Maquisapayoj?
The Tambopata BioStation and Maquisapayoj are situated in pristine primary
rainforest. BioStation is on the small, undisturbed Rio Blanco. Both places are
surrounded by plenty of private walking trails to discover, ideal to observe
animals, especially at the nearby oxbow-lakes and at the licks. Nobody else
around in hundreds of kilometres of rainforest!
• Ecotourism and Conservation
Ecotourism is an important economic activity for the inhabitants of the
rainforest that permits its use without destroying the rainforest resources.
That's why it's very important to involve local people in Tambopata tourism!
Most of the rainforest flora and fauna is not visible to the visitor at first
sight. It depends very much on the knowledge, skills and experience of your
guide, if you will see something of the beauty of the rainforest or just pass
by. – But you also need to bring some luck

Natural History, Birdwatching, Photography, Platform Camping, Hiking, Nightwalks,
