Amazonia Lodge is located in the tropical rainforest of the Manu Biosphere Reserve, near the village of Atalaya (Paucartambo Province).
The Lodge is located in the transition zone between the Andes foothills and the tropical lowland rainforest, right on the banks of the Alto Madre de Dios River.
The property comprises more than 350 ha of primary forest and the altitude range is between 500 m to 1050 m with different kinds of habitats. This range in altitude explains the high diversity of wildlife, also see bird list of Manu.
Amazonia is one of the best places for bird watching in Peru, with more than 630 bird species recorded so far. It is a peruvian paradise for Birdwatchers, nature lovers and photographers. The comfortable Amazonia Lodge contains 15 rooms and a total of 34 beds. There are 8 bathrooms with flush toilets and solar powered hot water showers. Since 2016 we have 4 rooms with private bathrooms.
