Welcome to Reserva Natural Zacambú
Reserva Natural Zacambú is one of the jungle reserves nearest to Leticia, about 70km by boat. Its lodge is on the Río Zacambú, a tributary of the Río Yavarí, on the Peruvian side of the river. Zacambú sits on a flooded forest that is a habitat for many species of butterflies, but unfortunately is also a popular hangout for mosquitoes. Its proximity to Peruvian communities also means it's not the best spot for wildlife, though it's still easy to see dolphins, piranhas and caiman in the river, as well as a rich variety of birdlife in the jungle. Both the lodge itself and tours are run from Leticia by Amazon Jungle Trips, and it's one of the easier places to access in order to explore the natural world.
