A trip to the Amazon rainforest is a must-do for travellers visiting Bolivia.
Wildlife abounds in Madidi National Park, one of the most bio-diverse parts of the world.
The park was formed in Bolivia in 1995 and covers almost two million hectares of the most beautiful pristine jungle.
Madidi covers a wide range of habitats, from forested Andean foothills to the steamy Amazon rainforest.
There is the chance to see jaguar, monkeys, caiman and much more in this wildlife-rich area.
Our eco-lodge is run by Quetchua-Tacana Indians, who have lived more than 200 years on the only settlement in the park.
The canoe trip from Rurrenabaque to Chalalan was fantastic. Seeing the wild boar and monkey tribes. The remoteness of Chalalan.

The Uyuni tour - even though we weren't able to visit the National Park due to snow, it surpassed our expectations with its amazing, spectacular landscapes. We had a great guide (having an English-speaking guide was well worth the extra cost - thanks for the steer).
Everywhere was friendly, welcoming and well-located, and in fairness did have hot water which was very welcome! We loved the lodge at Chalalan. Other than the cold rooms, the Tayka Salt Flats tour lodges were spectacular.
The guides were top notch. Informative, personable, organised and punctual, and clearly put in the effort to give us an outstanding experience, including the revised itinerary in Uyuni where we felt that our guide, Alvaro, really stepped up to minimise the impact of the National Park closure and give us a great time.
Chalalan explained how they are benefitting the local community and it was gratifying to see the contribution it makes.
The arrangement by which Tayka hotels transfer into community hands also seemed like a good model.
Generally, we were told often that Bolivia feels a bit off the tourist map and that the country would benefit by visitors spreading the word.
Bolivia is a lovely, diverse and, in places, spectacular country. It's also one of the rougher countries we've visited, given the altitude, extremes of temperatures, road conditions, limitations of accommodation and general level of development, and this reflects in some of our comments above. Our trip itself was really enjoyable and fascinating and we'd like to thank you for your help in putting in together.
