Tambo Blanquillo is optimally positioned to easily access three oxbow lakes (all at different seral stages) a Macaw Colpa (claylick), the great Madre de Dios river, and the largest Amazonian Canopy Tower (in a massive Kapok tree). These attractions are full of wildlife and provide unique opportunities to observe many elusive species at close proximity. The Varzea seasonally flooded forests around the lodge are full of bamboo specialists, the river island habitats along the Madre de Dios are full of seasonally-abundant river island taxa and provide an easily accessible location to observe large mammals coming to drink at the river such as Giant Anteater, Jaguar and Tapir. Large heleconia and cecropia groves are a scenic and productive location to observe birds and amphibians. The macaw colpa is full of parrots, parrotlets, parakeets and macaws. The lakes are the highlight of this location. Many species of cocha (oxbow lake) specialists are present in these locations including Giant Otters, Slender-billed Kites, Hoatzins, Purus Jacamars and many more. If you are a fan of incredible wildlife, plants, biodiversity or unique ecosystems then Tambo Blanquillo is a great place to visit.
