TAMBO BLANQUILLO

THE WET AND DRY SEASON IN THE AMAZON

The amazon climate is generally hot and humid all year long with a mean temperature of 30 degrees Celsius.  In the tropics, weather can be very volatile, and change rapidly from one moment to another, however in Manu Biosphere, those changes are constant regardless of the season. The main benchmark that sets a contrast in a tropical forest is amount and frequency of the rainfall.

Built strong to last long. Just as flora in the tropics, our installations are well adapted to resist the most challenging weather conditions.

Dry season (long spells between rains and less volume) is between April till the end of November, and wet season (shorter spells and more volume) is from December to the end of March, with temperatures peaking up to 40 degrees Celsius.

River overflow. Flooding by heavy rain is common during periods of wet season.

February is a period of heavy rains, and roads are likely to be inaccessible during this period.  Along with Manu National Park, Tambo Blanquillo Private Nature Reserve do not operate during January and February for safety expedition and observation purposes.  We only offer our programs during the rest of the year, perfect for guests to visit the lodge. 
Keep in mind the rainy season period before planning a visit to our lodge.  Other than that, any month is ideal for wildlife observation, daily excursions and hikes.  Check your vacation dates bearing in mind that even though you decide to travel during the wet season, sighting of wildlife will be possible.  Fauna is not hiding and waiting to be spotted!

Exotic species such as mollusks, crabs and tortoise can be found in-land territory during rainy season. This adult snail was found by our volunteer while walking along a trail.
