Amazon Rainforest

A travel blog entry by couillard


We are about 8 hours away by boat from Puerto Maldonado at the Tambopata Research Centre (alias TRC) We spent last night at the Refugio Amazonas as it was too far to get here on the same day. Pictures of the Refugio show a much bigger camp which it is more popular as it is not as remote. The TRC is similar in construction but we have have shared …

Peru - the Amazon and Jungle Sickness

"Destroying rainforest for economic gain is like burning a Renaissance painting to cook a meal." Edward O. Wilson

Arrived at Puerto Maldonado mid afternoon in a rather hot a sweaty state, which seems to be the default setting of much of this trip so far. The Anaconda Lodge was a welcoming oasis, individual log cabins set in tropical …

Rumble in the Jungle

A travel blog entry by weltwanderin


Am Montag morgem ging es dann mit dem Flieger nach Puerto Maldonado. Dort wartete Lydia auf mich. Außerdem wurden wir von Frank, unserem Guide für die nächsten Tage abgeholt. Mariella aus dem Office in Lima hatte zwar geschrieben, dass sie einen deutschsprachigen Guide anfordert, aber ich hatte nicht damit gerechnet, dass wir tatsächlich einen …

Far above the canopy

A travel blog entry by jowhiting


Now this really was an early start – 5am but we were to do the 30 meter scaffolding canopy tower. It seemed really high but 152 steps later I was standing at the top telling myself not to look down. There wasn't much room at the top and it took a few minutes to get used to the height. It was still dark at first just the faintest light …

Stinkbirds and Tarantulas in the Amazon

A travel blog entry by jowhiting


It was an early start today as we were going on a jungle walk with our guide Jaime to a mammal clay lick. It was quite hard going with the heat and the humidity but exciting to be finally walking in the Amazon rain forest. The jungle accounts for over 50% of Peru's area and incredibly much of it is still intact mainly because of its inaccessibility …

    Nice place but don't be late for meals, portions seem to be calculated, so no extras. Was a little grossed out when bat guano landed on our table during supper. We moved our table to a safer zone but there must be something they could do to fix this problem! A few guests got some on their clothes too.
    Porters lost my pack strap when they brought up bags . 😕
