One of the National Geographic Unique Lodges of the World, Mashpi Lodge allows you to experience the amazing biodiversity of the Mashpi Rainforest Reserve, with the lodge perching 950 metres above sea level in the heart of a lush, green private reserve. Explore both rainforest and cloud forest and discover more about these unique ecosystems and their flora and fauna with experienced guides.

MTM_RGB_BlackText-(1).pngMashpi Lodge has an ongoing project that's final goal is to bolster both the importance of research and enrich our knowledge of the lodge’s surrounding ecosystem. This knowledge is then shared with local communities, their guests and the world at large, all with the aim of underlining the importance of conserving this fragile and fascinating bio-region. The experience directly advances UN Global Goal 15: Life on Land.
