ABOUT YACUTINGA LODGE & WILDLIFE RESERVEYacutinga is an environmentally friendly Lodge and private Wildlife Nature Reserve located in the heart of the Argentine Rainforest, surrounded by the Iguazu National Park.
The Wildlife & Nature Reserve area, which covers 570 hectares, is part of the 270.000 hectares of protected Rainforest, shared by Brazil and Argentina and known as the "green corridor".
Yacutinga Wildlife & Nature Reserve still maintains richness in bio-diversity, far away from massive tourism concentration. You can enjoy diverse out-door activities with a soft adventure and eco tourism focus.LOCATION AND DESCRIPTION:
Yacutinga Lodge & Wildlife Nature Reserve is located on the Iguazu River in the northeast of Argentina.
The Iguazu National Park in the northeastern province of Misiones, is a region of large rivers, humid tropics, red soil and bright green jungle, full of giant and ancient trees, peculiar endemic flora and a large presence of wild fauna. Iguazu itself means large waters in Guarani language.
The park, located on the Argentine border with Brazil and Paraguay, presents a pristine area of subtropical rainforest, with more than 2000 identified plant species, more than 400 species of birds, mammals and reptiles and of course also contains the impressive Iguazu Falls, one of the worlds natural wonders featured in Frank Coppolas famous movie "The Mission".
As the nature reserve is surrounded on three sides by over 5 km of the Iguazu River, the final leg of your journey to the lodge is by boat. The Lodge can be reached easily from Puerto Iguazu (Argentina) or Foz do Iguazu (Brazil)
You dont need to be a wildlife expert to enjoy Yacutinga. Beginners will have plenty of time to relax, soak up the atmosphere of the area, take out the binoculars and share nature oriented trips, escorted by bilingual naturalist guides. For the expert we have designed specific trails for bird-watching, entomology, orchids and other epiphyte species, game observing and track scouting.
