Chalalan Eco-lodge is Bolivia’s premium Amazon lodge, combining community tourism with wonderful wildlife in Madidi National Park.
Madidi is one of the most bio-diverse, wildlife-rich rainforest areas in the Amazon where the flora and fauna is astounding.
In combination with the neighbouring Tambopata-Candamo Reserve, in Peru, it is thought to be the most bio-diverse of all the South American national parks.
You stay at Chalalan eco-lodge, a community tourism project designed to benefit the whole community.
The lodge has created a sustainable economic activity while preserving the resources of Madidi National park, whose varied eco-systems we explore.
Our native guide leads us on trails around lakes and to streams, and on boat trips to clay licks and wetlands where wildlife forages and congregates.
You can see caiman, monkeys, sloths and more among the canopy.
As well as wildlife, your guide will explain the the use of plants in the lives of native people for sustenance, construction, art and medicine.

El Pedral lodge in Argentina is Peninsula Valdes’ best estancia from which to enjoy the area’s fantastic wildlife.
Thanks to its privileged location, El Pedral, a 19th century Norman house, is the perfect top quality accommodation in Valdes.
Southern Right whales, killer whales (orcas), Humbolt penguins, elephant seals and sea lions can all be found here.
After a day wandering the remote beaches, take a swim in the pool or relax in your comfortable room.
All communal areas are open and so you could read in the library, take in the views and enjoy a drink while wait for your home-cooked meal to arrive.
The Atlantic ocean, which El Pedral looks on to, is so deep that you can see Southern Right Whales directly from the beach.
There is a growing penguin colony too, plus the chance to see the resident orca pod.
The wildlife cast is completed with the steppe fauna – guanacos, foxes, maras and nandus, and the traditional activity you see all around, the sheep farming.

Our Galapagos Island Hopping Tour exceeded my expectations. I loved it!!!!
Haley and I had the most amazing trip anyone could ask for. I was so favorably impressed with every aspect and couldn't have asked for more. The tour guides were wonderful, especially Andrea and Valerio in Puerto Ayora.
I would endorse Andean Trails without question and for travelers to stay in close contact with their travel adviser. Tom Shearman was so helpful and gave me many useful bits of advice.
I was able to witness how the residents are recycling and doing everything within their means to maintain a healthy environment for future generations.
Thank you for making this the most memorable vacation we'll most likely ever have. I treasure these photos.
