The lodge is located in the tropical lowland rainforest of the Manu Biosphere Reserve.  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 70% primary forest, mostly in the hills(foothills). The rest is mature secondary forest with reforestation.

"One of Peru's top birding sites." Paul Coopmans
We also offer bird watching tours and natural history tours in Manu. 

During 1983 Dr. John W. Fitzpatrick and his team were doing studies in Amazonia.  He suggested to the Yábar family to work in tourism because of the potential he and his team had observed specifically for birdwatchers.  In 1984 the Yábars converted the property into a lodge creating one of the pioneer lodges in the Manu Biosphere Reserve.  Working in Ecotourism, the lodge is now considered one of the best birding places in Peru.  The lodge's bird list contains 630 species and keeps going up fast, becoming one of the largest lists in the world.  There also are many species of mammals including tapir, peccary, jaguar and puma as well as 8 species of monkeys including the rare Night Monkey.  Furthermore, many butterflies, amphibians, reptiles, orchids, and bromelias are found on the grounds of Amazonia.

You can also find references about Amazonia Lodge in the book Where to Watch Birds in South America by Nigel Wheatley.

Rainfall per year is 5 meters. Rainy season is from december to march. We offer full board and can arrange for a guide to accompany you during your stay.
Excursions into other habitats can also be organized.
