The Tambo Blanquillo - Private Reserve was founded decades ago by the Raffo family in Peru. Their total dedication and commitment to conservation, sustainable eco-tourism, and reforestation has allowed this reserve to become one of the best biological hotspots in the world.
Tambo Blanquillo is home to three Oxbow Lakes -Blanco, Camungo, and Blanquillo- which host Giant River Otter families, over 350 bird species, caimans, and virtually unlimited surprises.
We are also the home of the Blanquillo Claylick, the best place to see and photograph Macaws and Parrots in the Neotropics. Every morning, dozens of Red-and-Green Macaws, as well as hundreds of parrots and parakeets from different species gather at this claylick to levels their pH levels. All this happens, while you enjoy the show from the comfortable blind constructed less than 50 meter aways from the action.
Besides these magnificent birds, we get the occasional hungry Ocelot or Jaguar, looking for a colorful prey.
Finally, in the late 1990s, Tambo Blanquillo built the highest observation tower in the whole amazon basin. This 50-meter tall tower stands besides a Kapok Tree -without hurting it- and allows to see and experience the jungle in a unique way.
We are currently offering three different itineraries to visit Manu National Park. Two of them travel the new Interoceanic Highway, that links Peru and Brazil, and the other one travels through the infamous Manu Road, the birdiest road in the world.
