Welcome to Río Heath
This, of course, far from being a disadvantage, is the region's allure. Here, unlike other jungle locales open to tourism, development has been minimal indeed. This means acre for acre wildlife sightings are not only greater, but the species spotted, including the maned wolf and spider monkey, are much rarer than elsewhere.
The reserve in question, Parque Nacional Bahuaja-Sonene, comprises only a part of the still-vaster Tambopata-Madidi wilderness reserve that spans a nigh-on 14,000 sq km tract across Peru and Bolivia.
