With the introduction of the Lodge Heli Fishing Program, the lodge’s guides and guests can access the most remote, productive, and unpressured waters in Bolivia for golden dorado, pacú, and yatorana. Anglers traveling to the new program will enjoy single occupancy accommodations at Pluma Lodge. The primary goal of the new venture is to expose anglers to waterways rarely seen by humans while showcasing as much of the region as possible in a single week.

Lodging Details
Newly built lodging at Pluma Lodge hosts twelve total anglers per week (6 Heli, 6 Standard Package), with anglers enjoying single-occupancy rooms. The lodge is built entirely from locally sourced, sustainable wood and feature a private bathroom, a queen-size bed, a desk, an armchair, hot water, and electricity. 

Pluma features a well-fashioned private dining room and living room where anglers can socialize after the fishing day. Free laundry service is available daily to ensure anglers can minimize packing and stay fresh throughout their stay. Additionally, an onsite fly shop is available for anglers looking to fill out their fly box or in need of terminal tackle. The helicopter pilots utilize a nearby heliport at each location, allowing quick and easy access to the day’s fishing. Given the physically demanding nature of fishing in Bolivia, the lodge also has a massage room for guests to enjoy.

Food and Beverages
Guests will enjoy made-to-order breakfasts each morning before departing to fish. Each afternoon, lunch will be served streamside with cold beverages provided by your guide. In the evening, guests enjoy freshly prepared international cuisine paired with local Argentinean, Chilean, and Bolivian wines and an all-inclusive bar with various spirits. Given the remote nature of the lodge, the cuisine at both lodges is delicious, fresh, and diverse.

Typical Length of Stay
The lodging package includes seven (7) nights total between the two lodges and six (6) full fishing days. The package also includes two nights at a five-star hotel in Santa Cruz de la Sierra at each end of their trip.  

Non-Angling Activities and Options
Tsimane operates in a remote, fishing-focused destination. It is not the ideal location for non-anglers and is best suited to those who are there to fish. That said, the wildlife, birds, and butterflies are amazing and sure to impress even the most hard-core angler.

Internet / Communications
Satellite Wi-Fi is available at Tsimane’s Pluma Lodge location. There is also a satellite phone on site for emergency use.
