Built in a former cacao and rubber plantation, on the grounds of what was back in the 50’s “Fundo Concepción”, an Amazon Catholic medical mission center, our children friendly lodge is located in an enchanting and serene lush setting within 819 hectares of natural rainforest. The rainforest acts as a buffer zone between the Tambopata National Park Reserve and the shores of the vast Madre de Dios river, making the location of this new lodge quite unique and wonderfully remote. Located only 8 kilometers / 20 minutes down river from Puerto Maldonado, Hacienda Concepcioón can only be reached by taking a scenic canoe ride from the town.
Pristine, remote, yet easily accessible. A welcoming haven situated at the heart of a 17,000 380 hectare-private ecological reserve (42,008-acre 439 acre), only a 25-minute flight from Cusco. Daily flights from Lima via Cusco to Puerto Maldonado, gateway city.
From Puerto Maldonado Airport, check-in, then 10 minute transfer to the Boarding Wharf for a 45-minute boat transfer along the river to the Lodge. Located at Kilometer 15, on the left bank of the meandering Madre de Dios River.
Start your journey arriving to Puerto Maldonado and checking-in at the INKATERRA LOUNGE (BUTTERFLY HOUSE*), where our staff will welcome you and provide the necessary information for your stay. Navigate by outboard motorized canoe along the Madre de Dios River to Inkaterra Hacienda Concepción for approximately 25 minutes. Enjoy LUNCH with organic ingredients and native flavors. After lunch, take a walk through CONCEPCION TRAILS, inside property nature trails, where you will discover and learn about primary and secondary rainforest, its components, uses, transformations by the human being, and its relevance for the world. At dusk navigate by outboard motorized canoe, at the TWILIGHT RIVER excursion. By sailing on the Madre de Dios River, you will learn about its ecosystem, Amazonian creeks, nocturnal animals’ behavior, and the southern constellations. In the evening enjoy a nice DINNER in the Casa Grande´s dining room.
New experiences are ahead and after taking a nutritious buffet BREAKFAST, get ready for a long trek through terra firma into the Tambopata National Reserve towards LAKE SANDOVAL. Here you will understand why Madre de Dios is called the biodiversity capital of Peru, while learning about the Reserve’s conservation efforts and the lake’s formation. Navigate by dugout canoe across this mirror-like oxbow lake that is home to the endangered giant river otter (Pteronura brasiliensis), blue and yellow macaw (Ara ararauna), red howler monkey (Alouatta seniculus), black caiman (Melanosuchus niger), and one of the world’s biggest fresh water scaled fish, the paiche (Arapaima gigas).
Back to the lodge for LUNCH, and later the INKATERRA CANOPY WALKWAY & ANACONDA WALK await for you. Take a 20-minute ride by outboard motorized canoe to the Inkaterra Canopy Walkway Interpretation Center where you will learn about its construction and the conservation projects of ITA-Inkaterra Asociación (NGO). Ascend one of the two 98-foot towers (30 m.) and cross the 7 hanging bridges that connect the treetops at 91 ft. high (28 m). Enjoy the breathtaking vistas and get the chance to watch white-throated toucans (Ramphastos tucanus), woodpeckers, trogons, squirrel monkeys (Saimiri boliviensis) and the three-toed sloth (Choleopus hoffmani). After descending keep on feeling the incredible primary rainforest energy going along the 200-meter wooden bridge over the swamps (aguajales). You will learn about the fauna and flora of this flooded ecosystem. At night get ready for an adventure during the HIDDEN RAINFOREST excursion, where you will explore the Amazon rainforest that gives way to nocturnal animals who display intriguing behavior patterns, and enhanced senses as adaptation mechanisms. Listen to nocturnal living nature sounds, and penetrate this hidden world. End up your day with a pleasant DINNER.
After BREAKFAST buffet, take a ride back to Puerto Maldonado by outboard motorized canoe. Arrive at the Inkaterra Lounge (Butterfly House*) where you may wait for your flight back home or to your next destination, while visiting this beautiful BUTTERFLY HOUSE and learning about the fascinating transformation of these colorful insects, bred in our laboratory. Note: Check-out time is at 11:00, you could choose to stay at the lodge or go earlier to Puerto Maldonado. Although lunch is not included on the last day, you can choose to have lunch at the lodge (pay directly at the hotel) or have a snack at the Butterfly House.
