Wildlife lodges

For wildlife lovers, visiting some of Latin America's remote and lushly overgrown corners is sure to be high on the agenda. In these untamed areas, like the Amazon, Pantanal or Costa Rican rainforest, wildlife lodges provide not just a bed for the night, but also the means of getting around South America and exploring.

A programme of excursions, usually included in the cost and led by eagle-eyed naturalist guides, will showcase the wilderness all around from a variety of perspectives, offering the best chances of sighting exotic fauna in its natural habitat.

There may be trails leading out from the lodge for exploration on foot, horseback or mountain bike; excursions by river boat and kayak; perhaps observation towers and canopy walkways. Often you won't need to go far for those sought-after wildlife encounters – you may see parrots in the treetops from your window, spot animals casually wandering through the grounds, or awake to the sounds of howler monkeys and bird song. Standards of lodging vary from the very basic to the luxurious, but what all our South American jungle lodges share is a sense of complete immersion in the wilderness and a chance to reconnect with the natural world.

Stay at Calanoa Lodge in the Colombian Amazon on our Off the beaten track Colombia: San Agustin and the Amazon holiday. This inspiring holiday plunges you into the unique cultures of historical and modern day Colombia, travelling by road through exquisite natural landscapes only recently made easily accessible to visitors.

What our experts say

I've been virtually everywhere in Brazil and can genuinely say that the Amazon is one of my favourite regions - the stunning flight of macaws against an apricot sunset sky is an unforgettable image. You'll almost always spot monkeys: funny how each time it is a new delight - alligators, turtles, toucans, and often the odd sloth watching from a treetop or a dolphin leaping form the still waters. River otters are a rarer sighting: all the more exciting when you do see a family at play.
