Built on a former cacao and rubber plantation, Hacienda Concepción is nestled into over 2,000 acres of lush natural rainforest between the Tambopata National Park Reserve and the shores of the vast Madre de Dios river. The hacienda is composed of a comfortable main lodge, a Casa Grande with 8 twin rooms, and 7 individual cabañas. These are built in traditional Amazon style, with high ceilings, hand-woven thatched roofing, and locally-crafted furnishings made of reclaimed lumber. The cabins offer covered porches overlooking the private lake – perfect for wildlife spotting.
Upon arrival to Puerto Maldonado you will be met by a representative of Hacienda Concepción and transferred to the Inkaterra Butterfly House to check in before heading to the jungle. From here, you will drive out to the wharf on the Madre de Dios river for your 45-minute boat transfer to the lodge.
During your stay in the jungle you will be able to take guided hikes into the rainforest, look for wildlife along jungle rivers and lakes, and learn about the jungle ecosystem. You will receive a briefing upon arrival to the lodge about what you can expect during your stay and have a chance to meet some of the guides.
