The Tambopata National Reserve is a protected area of roughly 275,000 hectares in the South-eastern of Peru. The reserve is one of the largest remaining areas of pristine rainforest. The reserve holds a rich biodiversity because it contains wetlands, lowland, foothill and cloud rainforest. Besides that, it has multiple oxbow lakes and its crossed by three different rivers: the Malinowski, the Tambopata, and the Madre de Dios. The Tambopata National Reserve is a critical area to conserve as it is a major corridor between the Manu National Park and the rainforests of Bolivia.
I chose to travel to this region because some of the areas are more open compared to areas where I stayed in Las Piedras. This presented new opportunities for me as a guide and photographer.
