The Manu Biosphere Reserve is one of the most pristine areas of rainforest in the world and contains 13 different ecological zones, creating great diversity in its native species. Visitors at this large national park must be accompanied by a registered guide, so trips to the Manu must be booked in advance. The Tambopata-Candamo nature reserve is another park created to protect important ecosystems and diverse species. Visitors can take a break from the jungle by fishing on Lake Valencia or swimming in the refreshing waters of Lake Sandoval.
Manu offers by far the greatest quantity and diversity of animals and plants in the world. No other destination in Peru or beyond can compare with Manu Nowhere else can you enjoy a superbly intact transect of tropical habitats from Andean grasslands and cloud forests down to foothill and lowland forests
Manu boasts the highest bird, mammal, and plant diversity of any park on Earth, including 1,000 of the world’s 9,700 bird species, 200 species of mammals, and 15,000 species of flowering plants. The most photogenic spectacles are frolicking Giant Otters, 1,000 parrots and macaws at a riverbank clay lick, dancing Cocks-of-the-Rock, habituated monkeys, and huge Lowland Tapirs at a forest clay lick.
In terms of wildlife for your money, our Manu itineraries offer the greatest payoff of wildlife per dollar of any rain forest site in Peru and Latin America. Other New World rain forests may be somewhat less expensive than Manu, but NONE of them offer Manu’s tremendous wildlife diversity. For travelers who want the finest rain forest experiences in the world, Manu offers the ultimate “bio-trip” from the Andes to the Amazon or programs to the Manu National Park, a world Heritage Site.
All Manu trips described here start and end in Cusco and include all air and ground transport, food, lodging, and guided rain forest outings.
