The Amazon Peruvian Basin, considered the best-protected region in the country, is home to endemic wildlife, indigenous tribes and amazing plant species that you’ll only find in this area of the world. As a useful fact, Peru offers much better access routes to this area of the South American Rainforest due to its connectivity with regions like Puerto Maldonado, Cusco, Arequipa or Iquitos.

The area is rich with wildlife, common and rare, allowing you to be embraced by nature and the secrets of the Amazon jungle. Our top three picks for incredible bird-watching opportunities are the Tambopata National Reserve, the Manu National Park and the Pacaya-Samiria Reserve near the jungle city of Iquitos.
