A Unique Story

Eduardo Nycander founded Rainforest Expeditions after joining an expedition organized by the Wildlife Conservation Society to the little known Colorado clay lick in the Tambopata River. As a wildlife photographer, he was awed by the massive clay lick and the incredible number and varieties of parrots that visited it. Concerned with their protection, he identified a sizable patch of pristine forest near the clay lick, to build a research center, protecting it from the threats of illegal hunting of macaws. This also included an application for a 10,000 hectare forestry concession, to legally protect as large an area as possible. In 1990 the Tambopata Research Center was completed and Tambopata Nature Tours followed soon after. The company has grown from there to include 3 additional lodges and many adventures.

Community Connection

The Posadas Amazonas Lodge is actually owned by the native Infierno community! Rainforest Expeditions has worked with the community since 1995 and they support the marketing and management of the lodge. Each year profits are shared among the households of the community, providing 25% increase to annual incomes, and around 20 full time jobs at the lodge.

Environmental Engagement

The lodge has been running Macaw research projects since it's inception and continues to support conservation of the species. They've also gone to great lengths to reduce their carbon footprint in all of their lodges - using locally sourced materials, installing energy and water efficient systems and much more. However, generating some carbon emissions is inevitable, so what they can’t reduce, they offset. Their three lodges are the first carbon neutral lodges in the Tambopata National Reserve.
