Certificate of Excellence
Tambo Blanquillo-Private Reserve operates since 1990 in the tropical jungle of Manu. It is our privilege and duty to protect and promote the cultural heritage of Peru and provide visitors with an authentic experience in the untouched natural landscape of the real Amazon Basin. Located in the buffer zone of the Manu National Park, Tambo Blanquillo Private Reserve is surrounded by a variety of wildlife, biodiversity and genetic variables that don’t exist elsewhere in the world. It is an honor to share this ecological wonder providing a safe, responsible and quality accommodation.
