Chalalan Ecolodge, Madidi National Park

If your normal habitat is a town with thousands of people, cars and shops, welcome to another world. A green utopia at the heart of a 300 year old Amazonian jungle.

You will be remote from your everyday life. The struggles and strains of the city will be far behind you. Everything that is familiar will have disappeared. But you won’t be alone.

You’ll be surrounded by over 340 vivid and vocal species of tropical birds. Over 45,000 types of plant life will form your new home and you’ll be joined by countless animals, and innumerable species of weird and wonderful insects and reptiles. The people at Chalalan say ‘here the jungle is your host, and we are your guides’. So expect to sail along enchanted rivers, follow winding paths through the Madidi National Park and come face-to-face with fabulous wildlife.

Make this unique ecolodge part of your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Bolivia and step into an entirely different world.
