The Amazon rainforest, particularly the Tambopata National Reserve in Peru, is renowned for its breathtaking biodiversity. Among the many species that call this pristine wilderness home, the jaguar (Panthera onca) stands out as a symbol of strength, stealth, and unrivaled beauty. Here, in the heart of the Peruvian Amazon, you can embark on an adventure to witness the majestic jaguar in its natural habitat.

Meet the Jaguar


Jaguars are the third-largest big cats globally, following tigers and lions. They are characterized by their robust build, striking golden-yellow fur adorned with distinctive dark rosettes, and a strong, compact body.


These apex predators are highly adaptable, inhabiting a variety of ecosystems, including dense rainforests, swamps, and grasslands. Tambopata National Reserve provides an ideal environment for jaguars due to its rich biodiversity.


Jaguars are solitary and elusive creatures. They are known for their remarkable swimming abilities and powerful bite, capable of piercing the skulls or shells of their prey with precision.


As carnivorous hunters, jaguars feast on a diverse menu, which includes deer, peccaries, capybaras, and a range of other mammals. They are also skilled fishers, often catching their prey near water sources.

Conservation Status

Despite their reputation as apex predators, jaguars face numerous threats, including habitat loss and poaching. These magnificent cats are considered Near Threatened by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), making conservation efforts crucial for their survival.
