Heath River Lodge, Southern Amazon, Peru

Located on the Heath River that divides Peru and Bolivia, this amazing wildlife center is situated in the middle of the largest pristine rainforest in the Amazon. Only five hours by motorized canoe from Puerto Maldonado, you are a world away from the majority of other Amazon visitors. Within easy reach are an excellent macaw clay lick, oxbow lakes with giant otters, 480 bird species, and six monkey species. The center is also very close to the largest untouched savannah plain in the Amazon.

The lodge itself offers a small, comfortable and intimate environment, built of environmentally-sound local materials, such as driftwood mahogany, and palm-thatch, with just ten double (or triple) private bungalows, with private bathroom/toilets and hot showers plus a spacious, high-roofed dining, bar and lounge area. It is owned by a non-profit making conservation group.
