The Wild Tambopata photography workshop is located deep in the lowlands of the Peruvian Amazon Rainforest, in the heart of Southern Peru. Here, we will venture into some of the most pristine and least explored corners of the Amazon Rainforest. Set aside the Tambopata River, this mind-blowing 11-day photography workshop takes you on exciting routes through the forest, along rivers and among lakes to photograph a plethora of bird, mammal, reptile, amphibian and insect species!
You will begin in the small town of Puerto Maldonado, Peru where you will then be taken into the Rainforest depths and guided by professional / award-winning wildlife photographers. These photographers will not only enhance your photography skills but educate you on the biological information on the fauna and flora of the Amazon Rainforest.
Photographic opportunities include, and are not limited to, wildlife such as the endangered Giant River Otters, the famous Jaguar, Red and Green Macaws, Howler Monkeys and the large Lowland Tapir. Our photographers will take you on a journey through the depths of the Rainforest to the high canopy in search of the abundance of wildlife that thrives in this location, and will help you obtain those perfect photographs that you have dreamt of!
We will be staying at a quaint Eco-lodge in the heart of the Peruvian Amazon Rainforest. The lodge is surrounded by fruit trees and native flowers, which are perfect for attracting a great amount of colourful butterflies and birds, meaning there is plenty of wildlife to admire from your front porch. This luxurious Rainforest lodge will provide a beautiful display of traditional Peruvian cuisine each day. The bedrooms are thatched bungalows on raised wooden platforms, each with a private ensuite and a relaxing front porch to enjoy the environment from your from door. This is a great, comfortable base in a truly stunning setting!
