We are proud of having carbon neutral lodges through Regenera. A very useful tool from our friends of Nature Services Peru that will let us measure the footprint of our lodge's operations and neutralize our impacts in landscapes and natives communities in the Madre de Dios region.
Our guides are excellent at spotting the wildlife and birdlife in the dense Amazon Rainforest - this is thanks to their incredible skills, and the fantastic equipment provide by Vortex Optics. Since 2014, our team has used Vortex Optics binoculars and telescopes in the field. In 2017, we have received a donation of Vortex binoculars and scopes for all of our lodges, and our guests and guides alike will put in good use! Rainforest Expeditions is proud to be part of Vortex Nation.
