“JUNGLE BOUND” ADVENTURE

 

Established in 1964, 80 km (50 mi) down the Amazon River, EXPLORAMA LODGE is deep in primary rainforest and offers two-day or longer excursions. Romantic kerosene torches and lamps illuminate palm-thatched houses with 10-17 private sleeping rooms. Covered connecting walkways lead to the Tahuampa Bar, the Dining Room, the Sun Porch and two Hammock Houses. Showers & toilet facilities adjoin each house. A variety of treks are offered, including the Seven Bridges Trail walk. A special Full Day excursion to the Canopy Walkway is available for Explorama Lodge guests staying 2 or more nights.

 


“HEART OF THE AMAZON” ADVENTURE

On the Napo River, 160 km (100 mi) from Iquitos, EXPLORNAPO provides access to the pristine forest of Explorama´s Sucusari Reserve, as well as access to the adjoining Amazon Canopy Walkway, one of the longest treetop walkways in the world. This adventure offers the opportunity to live in an authentic Amazon River style with palm-thatched houses, kerosene lighting and open-hearth cooking in a rainforest surrounding. Room, shower and toilet facilities are identical to those of Explorama Lodge. The recommended 5 day/4 night program, including two nights at Explorama Lodge, provides the opportunity to take special rainforest treks and excursions into the surrounding primeval forest in an area named by scientists as the “Biodiversity Capital of the World ”. Other options available from ExplorNapo include an overnight adventure staying in ExplorTambo shelters which are located in more remote rainforest, as well as staying overnight at the ACTS Field Station.

 

 


PURE RAINFOREST” ADVENTURE

 

EXPLORTAMBOS is a primitive camp in Explorama´s deep virgin rainforest reserve of the Napo River, a two-hour walk from our nearest lodge, ExplorNapo. The new Tambos have a maximum capacity for 16 explorers who share this experience, sleeping in individual shelters with mosquito netted beds (shelters for couples are also available), eating meals cooked on an open-hearth fireplace and using the Tambos as the departing point for newly opened trails. Due to the Tambo’s isolation, the possibilities of spotting wildlife are much better than from any other lodge in this part of the Amazon. In the short time that the area has been visited by biologists, zoologists and our guides, many different species of primates - red titi monkeys, yellow handed titi monkeys, tamarins, squirrel monkeys, monk sakis, pygmy marmosets and howler monkeys have been observed. In addition to primates, they have also confirmed the presence of ocelots, tayras, arboreal anteaters, and other mammals. The ExplorTambo basic program includes nights at Explorama Lodge and ExplorNapo as well as the Tambos. On this adventure there are excellent opportunities to discover the unique animals and birds of the Amazon as well as to enjoy the wide variety of plants and insect life.

 


"CANOPY WALKWAY" ADVENTURE

Opened in 1993, ACTS, Amazon Conservatory of Tropical Studies, provides a research station for scientists in the rainforest and an opportunity for layman to share in their discovery. The large, thatched buildings are identical in construction to those found at Explorama Lodge. A donation to maintain and protect the surrounding Reserve and Canopy Walkway is included in the tariff for the ACTS Field Station. In addition to the Walkway, extensive trail hikes are available including the "Medicine Trail" used specifically to show the local rainforest plants used in modern medicine as well as examples of native plant remedies which science may use in the future.
