All meals include a variety of salads and fruits, as well as a selection of homemade breads. We also offer vegetarian options and a children’s menu, upon request.

LOCATION
Pristine, remote, yet easily accessible.

A welcoming haven situated at the heart of a 17,000 380 hectare-private ecological reserve (42,008-acre 439 acre).

Inkaterra Hacienda Concepción, is built in a former cacao and rubber plantation, on the grounds of what was back in the 50’s "Fundo Concepción", an Amazonian medical catholic mission center. In 1979 the ownership was passed to Inkaterra; and in 2003, the NGO Inkaterra Asociación (ITA) jointly with ACEER (Amazon Center for Education and Environmental Research) formed an alliance with the aim of promoting the conservation of ecosystems and natural resources in Tambopata. The National Geographic Society supported the restoration of the station.

The projection onwards was to bring all interested travelers an opportunity to learn about nature and biodiversity first hand through unforgettable experiences in a comfortable rainforest immersion.

The rainforest acts as a buffer zone between the Tambopata National Park Reserve and the shores of the vast Madre de Dios river, making the location of this new lodge quite unique and wonderfully remote.

Inkaterra Hacienda Concepción, comprises 819 hectares of mostly primary rainforest, with a natural cocha or oxbow lake. It is home to diverse ecosystems, tropical plants and wildlife. The lodge acts as a buffer zone between the Tambopata National Reserve and the shores of the vast Madre de Dios River, making the location of Inkaterra Hacienda Concepción a privileged one.

This family-friendly lodge will introduce you to the biodiversity of the rainforest through the wide range of land and river fixed excursions in its surroundings; as you may have the opportunity to observe giant river otters (Pteronura brasiliensis), blue and yellow macaws (Ara ararauna), dusky titi monkeys (Callicebus moloch), paiches (Arapaima gigas), agoutis (Dasyprocta variegata), two-toed sloths (Bradypus variegatus), peccaries (Tayassu tajacu), hoatzins (Opisthocomus hoazin), fly catchers, black caimans (Melanosuchus niger), ladder-tailed nightjar (Hydropsalis climacocerca), among others.

FAUNA & FLORA
Wildlife in the Tambopata Reserve is remarkable. Giant colorful parrots, toucans, and macaws share the forest with tamarins (Saguinus fuscicollis), peccaries (Tayassu tajacu), black caimans (Melanusuchus niger), and anacondas (Eunectes murinus). Our region is home to hundreds of butterfly species and a large variety of monkeys, southern river otters (Lutra longicaudis), four feline species, and much more. Numerous world records for biodiversity have been broken here, and many species are still undiscovered. Tambopata Reserve holds the world record for ant species, 365 species (Inkaterra Reserva Amazónica); and for butterflies, 1200 species (Explorer’s Inn).

Note: The Amazon Rainforest has abundant wildlife, although many animals like to hide in the dense vegetation. Be aware that you may not actually see them.

Africa promotes its "Big Five", their largest animals; the Amazonia could be said to be home of "The Tiniest Five Thousand Creatures".
