Please find below our choice of jungle lodges in Peru's Amazon rainforest. The Amazon covers a vast area of South America and in Peru it is possible to visit the Amazon in three main regions: Manu, Iquitos and Tambopata. Our holidays focus on the Tambopata region of the Amazon in Peru which we have specifically chosen to provide the best overall experiences as it contains some of the finest lodges in the Amazon, is one of the most biodiverse places in the world with fantastic wildlife and birdwatching opportunities, and is easy to access via short flights from Lima or Cusco. We avoid budget and standard jungle lodges which provide inferior experiences with poor food, poor guides and wildlife, and have carefully selected a fine range of internationally renowned premium and luxury lodges that offer exceptional experiences.
