The Peruvian jungle is part of the mighty Amazon basin. Amazon is one of the longest rivers in the world and runs through many countries in South America. There are two main jungle areas in Peru that you can visit, both equally beautiful and with many great attractions to experience. The first area is the area of Puerto Maldonado and the Madre de Dios River. The area is part of the great Tambopata National Reserve; The reserve covers around 274,690 hectares stretching from the Andes Mountains to Bolivia and is close to the Manu National Park and the Madidi National Park.

According to current estimates by conservationists, the area is home to 160 species of mammals and at least 650 species of birds, one of the most surprising Amazon facts. The area is home to 1200 butterfly species, over 150 species of amphibians and reptiles and more than 100 fish species, and over 10000 plant varieties. A highlight of the Tambopata National Reserve is the world’s largest known mineral clay lick. This is where hundreds of parrots and macaws congregate daily to ingest the detoxifying clay. The reserve contains the largest known clay lick in the world as well as the highest concentration of clay licks anywhere. Up to 17 different parrot species visit the licks daily.

Wildlife found at the reserve includes Giant River Otters, Jaguar, Tapir, Peccary, Caiman, Anteater, Armadillo, Eagles, Turtles, Deer, and wolves among many others. The reserve has up to eight habitats for different species of monkeys, including the Red Howler Monkeys. The Tambopata National Reserve is the home of the Ese Eja, an ethnic group that has lived in the area since ancient times and knows the area well. The Ese Eja are currently organized in three communities, Palma Real, Sonene, and Infierno. Infierno works together with private companies to offer diverse activities and tourism services including lodging and guided tours. The project has been considered a global success, thanks to the cooperation of the communities. If you get a chance to try it, you have to. Being able to share with the different communities is one of the best things to do in the Peruvian Amazon.
