Maps of the Tamshiyacu-Tahuayo

The Tamshiyacu-Tahuayo Reserve was originally designated by the Peruvian government in 1991 to protect the range of the rare red uakari monkey, an orangutan-looking monkey with a bright red face. Amazonia Expeditions played a major role in the development of the reserve (Learn More Here).   Subsequent scientific research has found one of the world’s richest variety of plants, amphibians, reptiles and birds. View a map of the Tamshiyacu-Tahuayo Reserve here

Our time in the jungle was an absolute highlight on our trip to Peru! Truly amazing! …Again, we had the most wonderful time. Almost more than words can say. The jungle and the Tahuayo Lodge hold very special places in our hearts and CAN NOT WAIT to return. Thank you again for offering such an amazing trip.

Our trip was INCREDIBLE. The lodge was great, the food was amazing, and the staff were all so friendly. We loved our stays at the B&B, the main lodge, and the ARC.

It was incredible and a trip of a lifetime Paul! My sister Paula and I had an amazing time and loved everything — your facilities and staff are top notch and I want to come back with my husband and daughters!!

Just wanted to say what an amazing experience staying at the lodge was, I only wish I had stayed longer… I hope I can come back again soon.

The trip was wonderful! We enjoyed every bit of our stay and tour in Amazonas.
