Madidi Jungle Eco Lodge, Parque Nacional Madidi, Bolivia
Madidi Jungle Ecolodge is an innovative community based ecotourism venture. Four indigenous families from the community of San Jose of Uchupiamonas started the project. San Jose of Uchupiamonas is a Communal Land Territory (TCO Uchupiamonas in Spanish) that spans 210 thousand hectares of forest within the Madidi protected area, in the Amazon area of Bolivia.
This Indigenous Ecotourism venture seeks to strengthen the conservation and protection of the natural and cultural resources of the area.
The cabins have been constructed on the banks of the Tuichi River (3 hours by boat from Rurrenabaque). The architecture and design correspond to vernacular style of Amazon cultures and were constructed with materials found in the local forest and that do not harm the environment. We have recovered age-old wisdom from our Uchupiamonas ancestor to provide comfort and safety at our facility. The Ecolodge is designed for the visitor to experience pure contact with nature; at all times during the stay they can feel the magic and charm of nature.
Madidi Jungle offers accommodation in single, double and triple cabins and camping. For your convenience and comfort, we have at your disposal 4 sets of bathroom and showers. All our facilities are completely equipped. In addition we have hammocks for relaxing and reading.
We have a system of trails designed for the discovery of the humid tropical forest. We offer more than 15 km of trails, where the visitor will be able to learn and see the local flora and fauna. This knowledge will be acquired with the company of a local expert in the interpretation of forest.
For outings on the Beni and Tuichi Rivers, we have completely equipped boats with outboard engines. Our boats have roofs, comfortable seating, life vests, and rain ponchos for eight passengers.
