SUSTAINABLE SEPTEMBER: Chimu Adventures' Rainforest Dreaming

In August, Chimu Adventures launched their first ‘Sustainable Feature of the Month’. Can you believe we’re already a month on and shifting the focus to Rainforest Expeditions in the Peruvian Amazon.

At a time when there is a lot of focus on this rainforest, Chimu Adventures is working closely with their partners to bring travellers sustainable and educational experiences.

Chimu’s September ‘Sustainable Feature of the Month’ is often described as the ‘lungs of our planet.’ A place of outstanding beauty and the perfect place to reconnect with nature. The Peruvian Amazon is travel daydream material for the self-confessed Nemophilist (which simply means, someone who has a fondness for the forest.)

PLUS, as part of a campaign called ‘Born to Protect,’ Rainforest Expeditions is offering one child per two adults free of charge at their Amazon experiences. This as a unique chance to show the future generation essential conservation and sustainability in action, sparking their interest in these paramount subjects from an early age.


What makes this organisation unique?

Karry On - Rainforest Expeditions

Founded in 1989, Rainforest Expeditions is a Peruvian organisation which links guests with the Tambopata National Reserve in the Peruvian Amazon via immersive cultural and natural experiences in the area.

They operate three luxurious rainforest ecolodges within the reserve and their aim is to show guests just how vital this mighty forest is environmentally and for indigenous communities.

By staying at one of Rainforest Expeditions eco-lodges, you make a meaningful contribution to their sustainable efforts preserving and protecting pristine land and wildlife populations and caring of the people.

While at the lodge, families can participate in locally guided activities such as Esa Eja native community survival techniques; discovering the unique colours, flavours and traditions of the Amazon and a dedicated ‘Children’s Trail’ which has been designed inspire a sense of adventure and love of nature.

Chimu’s Marketing Manager, Meg Hall, took her children to the Amazon when they were aged six and nine and can attest to the tangible educational benefits of introducing the natural world to young people.

“Being in the epicentre of nature’s heartbeat surrounded by a plethora of flora and fauna with my two young sons was education that no school or university could ever offer. They walked away with a deep love and respect for nature, our home and the future of mother earth.”

Meg Hall, Chimu’s Marketing Manager
