Amazonia Expeditions

Photo:

In 1980, tropical evolutionary biologist Paul Beaver established the first jungle-survival-skills and camping outfitter in the western Amazon. Today, Amazonia Expeditions operates the only tourism facility in Peru's Tamshiyacu-Tahuayo Conservation Reserve, which is known for having the greatest mammal and primate diversity of any zone studied in the Amazon—as well as 540 species of birds. Its comfortable wilderness lodge has boats, canoes, and a tree-canopy zipline.
