BOLIVIA - Tsimane Lodges

Fly Fishing for Golden Dorado

Tsimane's three Lodges (pronounced Chi-mon-ee) are in the heart of Bolivia, within the Isiboro Secure National Park (TIPNIS), where the Amazon jungle meets the Andes Mountains. The Park is home to some of the most amazing, untouched rivers in the world. Tsimane’s operating area is 125 air miles from the capital city of La Paz and 270 miles from Santa Cruz.
