Mashpi Lodge

____________

Life in all its Varied, Surprising and
Multi-Colored Forms

____________

 

The Mashpi Reserve – a steaming, breathing and living place – perfectly showcases the lungs of our planet and the organisms that live therein.

To descend and step inside of the reserve is to discover the hidden wonders of life. It is a universe in and of itself where, from the micro to the macro, flora and fauna surround and dance around you like never before. The magic here is palpable and its raw, untouched essence is so thick you can almost taste it.

It’s what brought us here in the first place, and it’s what inspired us to share this unique forest experience with the world.
