Tsimane – Pluma

Getting to the lodge

Tsimane’s operational area is about 125 miles (200km) from Bolivia’s capital city, La Paz and 270 miles (470km) from Santa Cruz, Tsimane’s base point. There are several different travel options to Santa Cruz’s Viru Viru Airpot, and on arrival at Santa Cruz you will be met and transferred to a five star hotel for the night.

The following morning Tsimane’s local host will pick you up at around 9:30am to head to the local airport. You will then board a charter flight to the Oromomo Indian Community (a 90-minute flight).

Guides will welcome the group upon landing and transfer everyone to the Pluma Lodge. This transfer is a 20-minute boat ride upstream to the secure Coruya Dock. From there, guests will be transported on 4×4 vehicles along a road cut through the middle of the jungle to each Pluma lodge
