ABOUT US

Madidi Jungle Ecolodge is a low-impact, rainforest eco-venture created and sustained 100% by indigenous people who live in the heart of Bolivia's Madidi National Park. We opened to visitors in early 2011 on community lands of San Jose de Uchupiamonas that span 210,000 hectares of pristine tropical rainforest within Madidi National Park in the Bolivian Amazonia.
