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.
Amazonia is one of the best places for bird watching in Peru, with more than 630 bird species recorded so far. Our intention is to preserve this pristine and bio-diverse ecosystem. Students and scientists are also welcome.
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.
