Parque Nacional Noel Kempff Mercado

El Parque Nacional Noel Kempff Mercado está ubicado a 600 Km al Noreste de la ciudad de Santa Cruz. Es uno de los parques más extensos y más intactos de la región Amazónica.

El Parque Noel Kempff Mercado es maravilloso, tiene una belleza única y es uno de las zonas protegidas más biodiversas del planeta. Razón por la cual ha sido declarado ¨Patrimonio Natural de la Humanidad¨ por UNESCO en el año 2000.

El Noel Kempff fue fundado el 28 de Junio de 1979 bajo el nombre de  Parque Nacional Huanchaca. Este fue modificado a  Parque Nacional Noel Kempff Mercado en honor al Dr. Noel Kempff Mercado, por su investigación y descubrimientos en el parque. En el año 1986 el Dr. Noel Kempff  y otras dos personas que lo acompañaban aterrizaron inadvertidamente en un laboratorio de cocaína clandestino dentro del parque, y fueron abatidos por traficantes de drogas.

Para los visitantes, hay 2 entradas con facilidades turísticas: Flor de Oro en la zona Norte y Los Fierros en la zona Sur.

  • ´Gijs, we had a fantastic time in both Flor de Oro and Refugio Los Volcanes. The organisation of the trip was first rate and totally efficient. The pilot you chose for us was amazing. We were particulary glad that you were able to be so flexible and tailor the trip to our requirements. We had no idea that the flight would be such fun. Thanks again.´

  • ´Having umed and ahed about whether or not to attempt a visit to Noel Kempff on a budget that couldn't afford a plane we made the decision that we would go with our friends to Santa Cruz and see what was on offer. What we found was that out of the 4 companies we asked about tours only 2 came anywhere near what we could afford and only one of those was straight up about the costs. That company ...'

  • ´It is a lot of hassle and trouble to go to Noel Kempff National park independently. I went with Ruta Verde. It is a great tour operator in Santa Cruz . The guide is a biologist who works in the park and knows a lot about the nature. During the trip we drove up to 2 Jesuit missions before we went on to the park. The night before we went in we slept at Campemento Florida and our guide took us ...'

  • ´I had a very nice and adventurous trip with Ruta Verde in the remote national park noel Kempff. On the way there we visited the impressive Jesuit missions. So it became a very mixed trip with nature, adventure and culture. The friendly guide (a biologist) could tell a lot about the nature, area and the people. He also happened to be a good cook, a perfect driver and an awful singer. The help in ...'

  • Hi gijs, before heading on to sucre while Nathalie is on her flight back home I just wanted to mention that we had a magnificent time in the park, been lucky with the weather and also with wildlife, seen so many animals that this trip will possibly be my most interesting time in the jungle for my entire life. Fernando was a good guide (though sometimes hard to understand his mumbling 😉 ), had ...'
