Attractions & Activities In Tambopata National Reserve
The Tambopata and Madre de Dios regions of Peru have remained, for the most part, gloriously isolated from outsiders. Thanks to the inaccessibility of the jungle lands they occupy, the indigenous communities here had only limited contact with the Incas and remained unaffected by the Spanish conquest, allowing them to continue on regardless of the changes that were happening elsewhere in Peru.
The most populous indigenous group in the province is the Ese-Eja, who dwell in villages on the shores of the Tambopata River, and practice farming and fishing. With such an intimate knowledge of the flora and fauna of this region, the Ese-Eja natives are well-suited to guiding and several tourism projects in the area employ them for this purpose.
The dense forests of the Madre de Dios region, just north of Tambopata, are home to a further seventeen indigenous groups, including the Machiguenga and Mashco Piro peoples. Among the communities who live here are uncontacted tribes, who shun modern life and live just as their ancestors have done for millennia.
