Tapiche Reserve, Iquitos

4.8
#5 of 12 in Parks in Iquitos
For a truly secluded Amazonian experience, look no further than Tapiche Reserve, a privately owned and operated conservation area accessible only by waterway. Wildlife here includes rare and endangered species such as the red uakari monkey, giant otter, Harpy Eagle, and Agami Heron, so you'll spot all kinds of creatures along the trail through lush primary forest. The 6000 hectare reserve is a strictly no-hunting and no-logging conservation area; visitor proceeds go towards providing locals with eco-sustainable work and preserving this Amazonian paradise. Due to its distance from the nearest town, the attraction doesn't draw crowds--making it the perfect place if you're seeking something remote. The remote location requires that guests choose either 4d/3n or 5d/4n trips. Please visit website for more information.

  • One more heart-felt review for Tapiche! I cannot recommend it enough. My mother and I booked a trip to Tapiche Reserve for 5 days in May 2018. We could not have chosen a better place to celebrate her ...  more »
  • I'm just very grateful for the good time we had in Tapiche. The team is doing a great job at presenting nature and animals in a real wildlife environment. Recommend it 100%!  more »
  • We were able to discover the world of the jungle for the first time for us. Tapiche offers not only a fantastic insight into the nature reserve, but is an urgently necessary and support value project for the protection of the forest, the animals living in them and thus of the entire ecosystem as a nature reserve. José (Peruvian Guide from Requena) is an incredibly friendly, interested and attentive Guide, which has worked for several years for the reserve. We experienced AWE, awareness and gratitude for the breathtaking landscape. 400km the River along the untouched nature enchants everyone inevitably. Nevertheless Katoo and his team provides the necessary safety and the organization is excellent. (So is, for example, via satellite phone an SOS emergency system, which would send a first aid team by air if necessary.) The establishment in the jungle is simple, however lovingly kept. At night you can listen the sounds wonderful, every morning you will be woken – very timeless for once by the crew. The rhythm is specify by Sunrise and sunset. Positively, we felt the limited size of the group. (max. 6 pers.) The price we find appropriate and gladly paid him. We were not only an unforgettable impressive experience, but could support a sustainable project. We hope that Katoo and his team still long besitzen-the perseverance and tenacity required to continue to obtain this Paradieses-. Thank you
