Inkaterra Reserva Amazonica
The magnificent Inkaterra Reserva Amazonica is a beautiful base to explore some of the Peruvian Amazon’s greatest biodiversity hotspots.
With the Madre de Dios River at its doorstep, the magnificent Inkaterra Reserva Amazonica provides an elegant base for travellers wishing to explore beautiful Lake Sandoval and the Tambopata National Reserve, a biodiversity hotspot deep in the Amazon Basin. Some 540 bird species have been recorded on the hotel’s private grounds alone, with icons of the Amazon such as blue morpho butterflies, tree frogs and capybaras found in abundance.
The 35 lantern-lit guest cabanas at Inkaterra Reserva Amazonica feature traditional thatched roofs, comfortable beds, mosquito netting and natural toiletries. There is no air-conditioning, but all cabanas open out onto an airy porch strung with hammocks and there are ceiling fans. Whilst remote, guests at the lodge still enjoy access to hot water and limited electricity.
Meals are served in the grand central dining room, also under thatch. Other shared facilities include a small wellness spa and numerous lovely seating areas. Activities at Inkaterra Reserva Amazonica range from quarter day excursions following trails or taking guided boat rides to a full day’s hike over to neighbouring lodge, Inkaterra Hacienda Concepcion. The latter journey may uncover howler, capuchin and squirrel monkeys as well as a very rare giant river otter.

Peru Tours Overview
Why Peru: Peru is a spectacular destination of ancient Inca ruins, stunning Spanish colonial architecture, snow-covered mountains and lush Amazon jungle teeming with incredible fauna and flora.
When to Go: Peru’s climate varies considerably by region and altitude. The best time for trekking is Jun – Sep, when days are sunny but nights are cold. The Inca trail is closed during the wettest month of February; however you can still visit Machu Picchu by train during this time. As one moves up into the mountains from the coast, night-time temperatures become colder. The eastern slope of the Andes, which includes the Amazon basin, experiences very heavy rainfall during the wet season, so the best time to visit this region would be Apr – Oct.
Combine With: A trip to Peru is easily combined with Bolivia, Ecuador, Chile, Argentina, Patagonia or Brazil. Alternatively, you could visit Central America.
Getting There: Lima has direct flights to and from cities all over South America.
