Untamed Photography Tours' Amazon Rainforest photo tours are located in the lowlands of the Peruvian Amazon. We are in the Tambopata Region of Madre de Dios; the heart of Biodiversity of Peru.  Our tours start in the small town of Puerto Maldonado in the Southeast of Peru, where we will venture into some of the most isolated and untouched parts of the jungle where biodiversity is at its best! Our award-winning wildlife photographer, Mark A Fernley, has been photographing the wildlife of this area for over 10 years. He is trained to keep his eyes open to spot even the smallest organisms in the ecosystem and provide photographic guidance to ensure guests have the best results. Photographic opportunities are endless, due to the abundance of fauna and flora of this extraordinary Rainforest.


When to visit the Amazon Rainforest


Best Time to Visit

When planning a trip abroad, one of the first things to consider is the weather during the time of your visit. We plan our photo tours during the best time of the year to visit, avoiding the rainy season that falls from November to February. During the rainy/wet season, you can expect torrential rain that lasts most of the day. While this is great for the forest and the wildlife, it can be a bit tricky when in comes to wildlife photography.


During the months of April, May, and June, the rains are less frequent and the humidity levels have dropped making for great photographic opportunities in a far more comfortable environment. The rainforest is still quite wet and the fruits have just ripened, bringing the forest to life after the heavy wet season. This time the year is perfect for all types of wildlife photography.

When we hit July and August, the rainforest starts becoming more dry and the vegetation becomes less dense, making for amphibians and reptiles to be less active and less commonly seen.
