Madidi Jungle Lodge

Madidi Jungle Ecolodge is a low-impact, rainforest eco-venture created and sustained 100% by indigenous people who live in the heart of Bolivia's Madidi National Park. We opened to visitors in early 2011 on community lands of San Jose de Uchupiamonas that span 210,000 hectares of pristine tropical rainforest within Madidi National Park in the Bolivian Amazonia.The ecolodge is accessible by boat, a 3 hour ride from Rurrenabaque. It's located in a prime location for seeing a wealth of wildlife and serves as the base for a variety of hikes of different lengths. We have designed the ecolodge in harmony with the environment, preserving the traditional architecture of Amazon cultures, using ancient construction techniques and local materials found in the rainforest. With a maximum capacity of 18 visitors, our exclusive cabins (private/shared bathroom) offer both comfort and safety to ensure your stay in the jungle will be a truly unforgettable experience.

Madidi Jungle Ecolodge offers boat transportation, comfortable accommodation, and a menu of delicious meals based on traditional rainforest ingredients. We provide a personalized service with the help of bilingual native guides (English and Spanish) who are passionate and knowledgeable about the rainforest. Our local guides will walk you through the Amazon Jungle around a labyrinth of trails to discover the exotic flora and fauna.

Our beautiful cabins are set on the banks of the Tuichi river, 3 hours away from Rurrenabaque by boat. Nestled right in the heart of the Madidi National Park, the ecolodge provides visitors with an opportunity to experience the real magic of the jungle and interact with the natural environment.
The architecture reflects the traditional housing style of Amazon cultures and the cabins have been constructed using local materials sourced from the surounding area that don't harm the environment. We have made use of age-old wisdom from our Uchupiamonas ancestors to provide comfort and safety at our facility.

Surrounding the ecolodge, we have designed a network of more than 40kms of trails that lead visitors through the tropical rainforest. Following the trails allows visitors to discover the amazing jungle flora and fauna.

Our accommodation can host up to 18 guests in traditional-style cabins where visitors will enjoy both comfort and tranquility.

The lodge consists of 4 private rooms with private bathrooms and 6 private rooms with shared bathrooms. You can choose between marital rooms, twin rooms and triple rooms. There are 4 separate bathrooms available for the shared bathroom option. All our rooms come with towels, other bathroom essentials and mosquito nets. We also have hammocks for relaxing and reading in after the jungle hikes.

The cabins are set deep in the rainforest surrounded by a constant symphony of birds singing and monkeys howling, especially at dusk and dawn. Their unique location will ensure your stay in the jungle is truly special.
Birdwatching

Research conducted in Madidi National Park estimates that there are approximately 1,200 species of birds within the protected area including macaws, parrots, toucans, harpy eagles, king vultures, wild turkeys, woodpeckers, kingfishers and many other smaller species. This means it's one of the very best places for bird observation in the world. After just 45 minutes walking from the Ecolodge, located on the Aguapolo River, you will find a natural Macaw cliff. During the first or last day of your tour, you will also have the chance to visit Caquiahuara, a natural nesting wall used by the red and green macaws and other species of parrots (dependent on season).

Wildlife Watching

During the treks you will have the possibility to observe a variety of wildlife including: black spider monkeys, capuchin monkeys, howler monkeys, squirrel monkeys, tapirs, wild pigs, deer, capybaras, turtles, caimans, lizards and other smaller species.

The wild cats, like pumas, jaguars and ocelots are the most difficult to see, but they could surprise us!

In the area surrounding the ecolodge, there are 5 different salt licks. These strategic places in the middle of the jungle are usually visited by different animals to gain important mineral salt. Visiting these areas means you're likely to observe more wildlife and learn about their behavior in the wild.
