Tambopata National Park is home to stunning oxbow lakes and macaw clay licks. It is the largest natural clay licks in the country. On this tour, you can be certain to spot vibrantly coloured macaws and parrots who fly to the cliffs to feed on the clay rich in mineral salts.

Family Traveller

After walking in and out of many tour companies in Cusco, we decided to travel to Tambopata with Machu Picchu Amazon Peru. Richard the person who sold us the tour was very friendly and informative. He had one of their representatives to pick us up from the Puerto Maldonado airport as we landed.

Saul was our guide and his knowledge and awareness of the animals and plants was astonishing. It was very easy to spot them as he knew when was the right time, we saw many distinct animals like Tapirs, Jaguars and Monkeys.

The lodges that Machu Picchu Amazon accommodated us were comfortable and the staff there cooked delicious local cuisine.

We would surely consider Machu Picchu Amazon Peru if we plan out trip to Peruvian Amazon again in future

Machu Picchu Amazon Peru offered us 4 unforgettable days of our Latin American trip. Amazon jungle is vast and it was a very positive time spent with their guide and whole team. We spotted many animals and the lodge we were put in was very comfortable. Extremely convinced with the trip and the treatment we received. A must do!

This place is really out of the world. Amazon Rainforests are massive and there are many hidden gems here. We were lucky to spot many animals including Tapirs, leopards, cheetahs and more. The guide as a local knew a lot and it was very easy to spot animals with him. He also has an immense knowledge about the plants and flowers those are typical to the region. The lodges were very cozy and comfortable. I was picked up and dropped off to the airport in Puerto Maldonado. Felt very safe and comfortable and highly recommend this company
