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.

The Kaieteur falls in Guyana are one of the world’s tallest single-drop waterfalls by volume of water. At 226 metres they are almost 5 times higher than the Niagara falls and have an average flow rate of 663 cubic metres per second. They are located in the Kaieteur National Park which is roughly 241 kms south-west of Georgetown within the Pakaraima Mountain Range. They are also totally off the beaten path and unspoilt. This means that you may be one of only a handful of people visiting when you go – unlike the Iguassu or Niagara Falls. Legend …
