The altitude range of the property is between 500 m to 1050 m with different kinds of habitats. This range in altitude explains the high diversity of wildlife. It is a peruvian paradise for birdwatchers, nature lovers and photographers.
The Yábar family, from Cusco, established the lodge in 1980 which used to be a tea plantation in the 1970’s. The book `Birds of South America´ by Robert S. Ridgely refers to the lodge as Hacienda Amazonia. The property has more than 70% primary forest, mostly in the foothills. The rest is mature secondary forest with reforestation. We offer full board and can arrange for a guide to accompany you during your stay.
The comfortable Amazonia Lodge contains 15 rooms and a total of 34 beds. There are 8 bathrooms with flush toilets and solar powered hot water showers. Since 2016 we have 4 rooms with private bathrooms. We own a small Hydroelectric for 24 hours/ day electricity 220 V to recharge batteries; we also have regular cell phone coverage (not all the time) and a satellite phone. The Lodge offers a nice dining area, great food, lighted walkways at night, time for siestas, flexible schedules, an excellent trail system and super birding right from your front porch.
