The Tamshiyacu-Tahuayo Reserve
Amazonia Expeditions has exclusive access to the Area de Conservacion Regional Communal Tamshiyacu Tahuayo (ACRCTT), commonly known as the Tamshiyacu-Tahuayo reserve, which provides you with the opportunity to experience an unmatched variety of wildlife. The site has more species of monkeys than any protected park or reserve in the world. Scientists have also documented the greatest diversity of species of mammals and birds of any site studied in the lowland Amazon basin.
1 Million Acres of Biodiversity
The most mega-diverse region in all of the Amazon may be the Area de Conservacion Regional Comunal de Tamshiyacu-Tahuayo (ACRCTT), which is also known as the Tamshiyacu-Tahuayo reserve. Only Amazonia Expeditions has tourist facilities with access to this magnificent reserve.
The Trail Grid
Nestled within the ACRCTT is Amazonia’s scientific trail grid, the largest grid in the Amazon itself. This trail grid spans over 1000 acres, covers 4 separate ecosystems and is used by students and researchers alike to study more about the region and biodiversity within.
Scientific Observation in the Amazon
The Tamshiyacu-Tahuayo Reserve was originally designated by the Peruvian government in 1991 to protect the range of the rare red uakari monkey, an orangutan-looking monkey with a bright red face.

Our time in the jungle was an absolute highlight on our trip to Peru! Truly amazing! …Again, we had the most wonderful time. Almost more than words can say. The jungle and the Tahuayo Lodge hold very special places in our hearts and CAN NOT WAIT to return. Thank you again for offering such an amazing trip.
Our trip was INCREDIBLE. The lodge was great, the food was amazing, and the staff were all so friendly. We loved our stays at the B&B, the main lodge, and the ARC.
