Detailed Information:

The Tambopata Research Center (TRC) is a spartan yet comfortable 18 bedroom lodge which was built fifteen years ago with the object of lodging tourists and researchers alike and of protecting the adjacent macaw clay lick. Because of its remote location in uninhabited wilderness housing stable populations of endangered wildlife, the small scale of its infrastructure and operations and the presence of researchers and naturalist guides, Tambopata Research Center is an excellent headquarters for in depth explorations of Amazonian nature and wildlife. 
TRC is located in a half hectare clearing in the middle of the uninhabited portion of the Tambopata National Reserve, adjacent to the Bahuaja National Park and 500 meters from the world’s largest macaw clay lick. 
TRC is four hours upriver from Refugio Amazonas. To get to TRC you must fly to Puerto Maldonado from Lima or Cusco on daily commercial flights lasting 30 or 90 minutes re

  • TAMBOPATA RESEARCH CENTER – WHO IS IT FOR? Tambopata Research Center requires at least four nights because of the travel time. One consecutive afternoon and morning are spent on the way to and from the lodge

  • the hours in the boat are not worth it. However
  • TRC is the ideal option for in depth explorations of the rain forest lasting four or more nights because: • The seven hour upriver drive takes you 150 kilometers into the uninhabited heart of the Tambopata National Reserve
  • where the surrounding wilderness is untouched. The largest known macaw clay lick is five hundred yards from the lodge. Dusky headed titi
  • squirrel
  • brown capuchin
  • howler and spider monkeys
  • as well as capybara
  • caiman
  • and agouti are seen frequently. Although very difficult to see
  • herds of peccary
  • tapir and jaguar are all at their carrying capacity. • Two state of the art
  • long term research projects are based out of TRC: the macaw project and the areas project (see Conservation Impact Sheets). • The combination with Refugio Amazonas allows you to experience the canopy tower and the oxbow lake.
