The Madidi's vast wilderness area encompasses unparalleled biodiversity ranging from mountain cloud forest to dry tropical forest, humid lowland rainforest to savannah, wild rivers to lakes. It is the habitat of more than 1.000 species of birds, 44% of all new world species of mammals, and an estimated 38% of neotropical amphibians. The tropical Andes where Madidi is located, is also a globally critical hotspot of endemic plants. The lower neighbouring Eastern side of Madidi is formed by Las Pampas forming wetland savannas. Our trekking activity is rather a walk on the wild side of the trailheads and river banks. Stay in campsites or bungalows.
