Madidi Jungle Ecolodge is a low-impact rainforest eco-venture created and sustained 100% by indigenous people from the heart of Bolivia´s Madidi National Park and open to the visitors in early 2011. The Ecolodge is accessible by a 3 hour boat ride from the amazon town of Rurrenabaque, and is a prime location for wildlife viewing, and serves as the base for a variety of hikes of different lengths. The Ecolodge offers comfortable accommodation for a maximum of 18 visitors at one time, and a menu of delicious meals based on traditional rainforest ingredients. The staff are all local, bilingual (Spanish and English) guides, with passion and expert knowledge of the surrounding tropical rainforest. 

Our Mission

Above all, our mission is to offer you a unique and unforgettable Bolivian Amazon adventure so you can experience all the wonder and the wildlife of the jungle in one tour. We also seek to improve the living conditions of our indigenous community and support the conservation and protection of the existing biological diversity of our community land (TCO Uchupiamonas) and that of Madidi National Park.

Our Vision

By 2020 we hope to be the most prestigious Community-based Ecotourism venture in the Bolivian Amazon (Madidi National Park). We want to be recognised for our highly personalized service, our great efforts to reduce local poverty and our deep commitment to the conservation of biodiversity. We seek to develop our innovative model of local management and connect with a wider network of international visitors and sustainable organizations.

 

Our Logo

For our logowe chose to feature the “Ara Severa” macaw, one of the most recognized species of the Amazon Rainforest. This bird represents the tropical jungle, but also has meaning for our organisation. We consider the color green to signify our wealth of thriving vegetation(the jungle) and the color red as our passion for the responsible ecotourism and local culture. Overall, our logo represents our commitment to, and respect for, Mother Earth.
