Fondateurs de Grand Amazon Lodge and Tours

Les fondateurs

Nous sommes véritablement passionnés par les animaux, la forêt et la population locale. Nous aimons aussi enseigner aux visiteurs l'environnement et leur offrir une expérience incroyable qu'ils n'oublieront jamais. Alfredo Dosantos BS (center) is a native born in Iquitos, is a biologist dedicated to animal conservation. He has worked for Le Fonds mondial pour la nature (WWF) et l'Instituto de Investigaciones de la Amazonia Peruana (IIAP), et a également été un guide principal pendant de nombreuses années. Il aime la photographie et beaucoup de photos sur ce site sont prises par lui. Daniel Aizenman BS (lower left) is also a biologist who did his first degree at University of California at Davis in Neurobiology, Physiology and Behavior, and is currently studying in Miami University and the San Diego Zoo for a masters in conservation biology. As part of his studies, he is currently examining the effect of Eco-tourism in the area and preliminary results suggest it has a positive effect on conservation.  Patrizia Marchese PhD et Yair Aizenman PhD (right) are also both biologists. Patrizia graduated from Universita Degli Studi Di Genova in Italy and Yair graduated from the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA). Patrizia has been a staff scientist at Scripps Research in La Jolla studying both blood and brain for over 27 years. Yair is a neuroscientist currently working on a book about how the brain explains us all. Patrizia and Yair are studying together the medicinal effects of a tree sap local to our area of the Amazon from the Croton Lecheri tree known as Dragon Blood. Gabriel Aizenman (upper left) is studying computer science at University of California Santa Cruz and helps in website setup. 


Helping the locals and environment

We are here for the community, the flora and the fauna. We are grateful to have the opportunity in helping conserve the Amazon rainforest. We supply medicine to the village, give them logistic support whether is transportation or help with pushing away loggers. By staying in our lodge you will be helping the local community and preserving he Amazon jungle. You will provide the locals with work in ecotourism as an alternative to hunting and logging. 

Les guides privés

We provide a private guide for each separate reservation. You are here only a limited amount of time, and to get the most of it, it is best to have someone that will go at your own pace and spend more time in the things that are interesting to you. With the private guide you can modify the itineraries to focus on what you are most passionate about. Also with the smaller quieter group you tend to see more wildlife and have a more personal experience with the local guide, asking questions on topics that interest you. Check out our various visites guidées.   


We are located 150km up the amazon river from Iquitos in a primary rainforst. After a year of searching the Peruvian Amazon for the best location, we chose to build the lodge in the area of the village of San Juan de Yanayacu because of the enormous biodiversity in the area and the care the locals already have for the environment.  San Juan belongs to Tamshiyacu-Tahauyo communal reserve which has an incredibly high level of biodiversity. More than 10 species of monkeys and over 600 species of birds, as well as two species of dolphins, capybaras, sloths and many other animals call the area home. This stands in contrast to most other lodges around Iquitos that are found in secondary forest where wildlife is scarce. We are also located near the place where the Amazon river, the largest river in the world, officially begins. The place is called Ucamara and is were the Ucayali and Marinion rivers meet. We can bring you there if you are interested for a fee to cover the gasoline and the driver. Ucamara is also bordering Pacaya Samiria National Park. 

There is another important reason why we choose to build the lodge here. The water in the Yanayacu river are black and acidic and the mosquitoes that carry malaria, yellow fever, and Zica do not live in this water. 

L'expérience culinaire

Ayant des cofondateurs péruviens et italiens qui aiment la bonne nourriture, la cuisine de notre lodge n'est pas une expérience ordinaire. C'est une joie pour les yeux et une symphonie pour le palais et une introduction à la culture péruvienne. Notre chef passionné et créatif, Marco, fait un excellent travail avec de nouveaux plats délicieux tous les jours.

Le chalet

All the rooms were built with river-view, and the whole wall towards the river has been covered with a mesh to provide best ventilation and view while keeping the mosquitoes out. Every room has its own bathroom, balcony, hammock, decorated cover with an animal picture, and animal pictures and views of the area on the walls. The common areas include a lounge and octagonal dinning room with a high ceiling and an original Canoe bar and they all have free WiFi. Check out our loge.

En conclusion:

Staying with us you will not only help the locals and preserving the Amazon, but you will also see and learn much about the environment. Having a private guide and staying in a river view bungalows in a lodge with great Peruvian cuisine and located in an area with high biodiversity will give you an amazing experience!
