WHY THIS TRIP
The Tambopata Research Center (TRC) is one of the most remote rainforest lodges in South America, offering adventurous travelers an outstanding chance to engage with the natural wonders of the Amazon. It is a comfortable lodge which was built with the object of lodging tourists and researchers alike and of protecting the adjacent macaw clay lick, one of the largest in the world. The TRC’s isolated location, inside an uninhabited area of the Tambopata National Reserve and next to the Bahajua-Sonene National Park, means that the rainforest ecosystem around it remains pristine, while the populations of wild animals are all at carrying capacity. Much ground-breaking macaw conservation research has been carried out from the TRC and you will likely have the chance during your stay to talk with biologists, botanists, ecologists and other experts staying at the TRC while they do fieldwork.
