Welcome to Rio Javari

Zacambú Lodge is on Lake Zacambú in a beautiful lake region on the Peruvian side of the Javari river. Operated by Leticia-based Amazon Jungle Trips, it’s the closest of the lodges to the triple frontier – about 70km from Tabatinga, or three hours by motorboat. Accommodations are simple but comfortable, in hammocks or small rooms, with shared toilets. Most excursions are made by motorboat or canoe, for obvious reasons – the bird-watching is particularly good.

Reserva Natural Heliconia has simple but cozy thatch-covered cabins with private bathroom, and hiking and boating tours of the forest and waterways. There are also organized visits to indigenous villages and special tours devoted to bird-watching. Parent agency is based in Leticia.
