PUERTO MALDONADO – Amazon of Peru
PRIVATE / SHARED SERVICES
Puerto Maldonado is located to south east of Peru, along the Madre de Dios River; the area is probably less explored by man. The variety of soils and microclimates has led the development of a diversity of plants. Puerto Maldonado is surrounded by wide rivers and lakes of beautiful vegetation, with a population of more than 90000 people; here lies the best quality soils of the Amazon. The Tambopata Reserve protects habitats from the Peruvian highlands until the cloud forests (lowland rainforests of the Amazon basin). Over 1,300 bird species (including 32 parrot species – 10% of the world’s total), 200 mammal species, 90 frog species, 1,200 butterfly species, 94 fish species, 135 kinds of ants, 40 termites species, 39 varieties of bees and 10,00 species of higher plants are protected within this reserve, and scientists continue to discover new species here. The world’s largest known mineral clay lick, where hundreds of parrots and macaws congregate daily to ingest the detoxifying clay, is also within this reserve, less than 500m/1640ft from the Tambopata Research Centre, one of our most highly recommended lodges in Reserve.
