Along the rocky riversides, we have a great opportunity to observe the river wildlife like many birds, turtles or sunbathing lizards. In the afternoon, we reach our next lodge – Rainforest Lodge. Then we go to explore nearby paths where we can see a big diversity of species, for example, tarantulas, ants, butterflies, some monkey species, huge trees, erotic plants, palms, etc. After that, we return to our lodge to overnight.

After this activity, we return to the lodge to have breakfast. Afterwards, we go for a walk following nearby Manu jungle´s paths observing its large flora & fauna biodiversity such as monkeys, birds, medicinal plants used by local people to heal various sicknesses, etc. For lunch, we get back to the lodge to later continue to another excursion, this time to Aguas Calientes (hot springs located in the Manu National Park) getting there downstream by a motorboat during a ride lasting about 2 and half an hour.

TOUR MAP: Manu Adventure 5 days

End of the services of Manu Park Lodge - Manu Adventure 5 days


For naturalists and birders the world over the word Manu conjures up exciting images of pristine Amazonian rainforest and a wealth of colourful and exotic wildlife. Indeed, the Manu National Park is one of the world’s biodiversity hotspots, supporting over 1,000 species of birds, countless reptiles, amphibians and invertebrates and an impressive range of mammals which includes Jaguar, Brazilian Tapir, Spectacled Bear and Giant River Otter. Over a relatively short geographical distance, you can travel down the length of the famous ‘Manu road’ and so complete a cross-section of the entire eastern Andean slope from páramo scrubland at the treeline, through moss-festooned elfin forest and mist-enshrouded cloudforest to subtropical rainforest and then, finally, lowland tropical rainforest. Each step of the way has its own set of birds and other wildlife and on this exciting new tour we aim to explore each of these zones in depth and get a real insight into the amazing biodiversity of this remarkable area. After an international flight to Lima, the Peruvian capital, we begin our tour with an onward flight to the historical city of Cusco. From there we will we head off across the dry inter-montane valleys towards Manu, watching out en route for Mountain Caracara, Andean Flicker, Giant Hummingbird and local endemics such as Bearded Mountaineer, Creamy-crested Spinetail and Chestnut-breasted Mountainfinch. At the Acjanaco Pass we complete our crossing of the inter-Andean valleys and, quite abruptly, almost as if weare passing through a gateway, we find ourselves gazing down at a stunning vista of ridge after ridge of richly forested hills which drop away like a glorious veil-painting to the Amazonian lowlands far below. This is Manu.From here we will use a series of comfortable lodges from which to explore each of the various altitudinal zones. In the high-altitude elfin forest and páramo we will look out for Moustached Flowerpiercer, Tit-like Dacnis, Golden-collared and Scarlet-breasted Mountain Tanagers and hummingbirds such as Shining Sunbeam and the exquisite Sapphire-vented Puffleg. Here, too, we have perhaps our best chance of seeing a Spectacled Bear and, whilst we would be very lucky to see one, we will certainly keep our eyes open! Dropping down into the cloudforest we will encounter a different and richer set of birds which may well include such stunning species as Andean Guan, Grey-breasted Mountain Toucan, Blue-banded Toucanet, Highland Motmot, Barred Fruiteater and Hooded Mountain Tanager. Descending still lower, a couple of nights spent at the famous Cock-of-the-rock Lodge will give us the opportunity to explore the lush middle-altitude forests. The lodge is sited close to a traditional and easily accessible Andean Cock-of-the-rock lek and, with luck, we will see these stunning birds at close quarters as they perform their noisy courtship displays. In the lodge gardens the feeders attract a rich and dazzling array of hummingbirds, tanagers and other species, whilst at the river just below the lodge we can look for Fasciated Tiger Heron and White-capped Dipper. Here Common Woolly Monkeys can also be easy to see as they forage amongst the moss and bromeliad-clad branches of the tall forest trees.Dropping further down into the foothills, we will next explore the rich secondary forests that surround Amazonia Lodge, where we have the chance of finding Military and Blue-headed Macaws alongside such stunning little hummingbirds as Rufous-crested Coquette, Black-eared Fairy and Wire-crested Thornbill. Then wewill push deep into the lowland rainforest wilderness of Manu National Park, staying for three nights each at the remote Manu Tented Camp and the celebrated Manu Wildlife Centre. Between the two, travelling mostly by boat and on foot along quiet jungle trails, we will encounter a diverse range of rainforest wildlife, including troops of Red Howler Monkeys and packs of noisy White-lipped Peccaries, whilst a chance encounter with a Jaguar or an Ocelot is an ever-present possibility. Birds may well include Pale-winged Trumpeter, Razor-billed Curassow and Blue-throated Piping Guan alongside a range of toucans, woodpeckers, woodcreepers, antbirds, trogons, puffbirds, mot-mots and lots more. Along the rivers we will look out for Capybaras, Spectacled Caimans, Orinoco Geese and Sunbitterns, while a trip to an oxbow lake should reward us with Hoatzins, Sungrebes and, with luck, Giant River Otters. During a dawn visit to a clay cliff we may see scores of Red-and-green Macaws and other parrots and parakeets coming in to eat clay, and we will complete our time in this amazing region with visits to a canopy tower and to a mammal clay lick where visits from Brazilian Tapirs are an almost nightly occurrence.Finally, after many memorable experiences, we will have to leavethis stunning wilderness and head back to civilization to, reluctantly, conclude what must surely be one of South America’s ultimate forest journeys

This is an impressive sanctuary within the Manu National Park. The Lodge is one of the principles of Manu and is therefore well established and comfortable in the long term. The dining room and the leisure area is excellent. The rooms are comfortable and create a connection with the natural environment. To be able to hear, see and experience the surrounding jungle is the reason why we chose to enter Manu National Park, to be part of nature for a while. We appreciate the staff render a friendly and positive attitude, always ready to help and inform. The food was excellent, with fresh produce and local specialties cafes. When visiting Manu ask to feel as if you want a 5 star accommodation experience or to connect with nature in a sustainable way, if the latter is an answer then choose Manu Park Lodge as the best option.
