Reserved Wildlife Area Tambopata - Candamo
  
Tambopata - Candamo Reserved Area

Established in 1990, upon an extension of approximately 1.8 million hectares (4.32 million acres), it shelters extraordinarily diverse species of flora and fauna, and it forms one of the richest natural areas on earth. To get to this reserved wildlife area, you have to travel south on the river Tambopata. The first point of interest is the native community of "Infierno", settlement of the Ese'eja Indians. About 8 hours upstream, we find the famous collpa of Guacamayos, and the national park Bahuaja-Sonene, created in 1996. There are extensive groves of chestnut trees, some beautiful lakes, and several tourist lodgings. Because the overnight accommodations are so far away, it is recommended that you stay a minimum of three days.
