Located where the deep valleys
that run down from the Andes meet the Amazon Basin, Wizard´s
Mountain Jungle Lodge neighbors Madidi National Park (with the
highest biodiversity on earth), and Native Tacana territory. It
is named after Wizard Mountain, one of the Sacred Mountains of
the Tacana people, which can be accessed on foot from the lodge.
Marking the entrance to our lodge is an ancient petroglyph of
two serpents where the river features a whirlpool that used to
swallow-up canoes on high water. It is thus both feared and revered.
We have built our lodge with deep
respect for the sacred land that surround us, using only local
materials and fine designs with bamboo and palm wood while providing
you with modern-day comforts to ensure a harmonious and enjoyable
stay. Our trails are characterized by imposing views from the
surrounding mountains, pristine forests and high concentration
of animals and medicinal plants. With our Canopy Walk you can
explore the amazing flora and fauna that inhabit the tree-tops
and enjoy breathtaking views.
We have collaborated with our
neighboring Tacana village to help them create a sustainable economic
future for themselves by creating their own cultural tourism company
whereby you can stay in their village and share in their daily
life, such as fishing, cooking, weaving palms for roofing, working
their fields, or tracking animals.
