Manu National Park, Peru4 contributions1 helpful vote
We spent a week in Manu Park with Wild Watch Peru and had a great time. The wildlife both around the lodge and in the Manu Park was abundant and amazing. From our cabins, we saw monkeys, parrots, toucans and many many different types of birds. We were woken up in the mornings by the howler monkeys right outside on the tall trees at Casa Matsiguenka. on top of that a jaguar along the river. Meals were included and prepared by our expert chef Fernando This is one of my most favorite places that I've ever experienced. Our guide was great, all they have telescopes and can find the animals you would miss on your own. I recommend the morning tour as it is not as hot, and I think the animals are more active. I cannot recommend this company enough!

Almost 2 million km of protected rainforest = one of the most amazing experiences you'll ever have. So many animals! (Which are protected instead of being hunted for food / trophies / pets, like in other places such as Iquitos among others...) Be prepared for a long trip (8 hours by car and boat to the first lodge, then several hours by boat for the 2 next lodges in our case), but that includes several stops along the way to eat but also to look for wildlife - we started seeing quite a few animals after about 4 hours, so it's definitely not all wasted time! We chose the 7 day trip with Manu Wildlife Adventure, and it was simply an unforgettable, amazing experience. 4 of us in the group, plus our excellent cook Richard and our guide Alex Olave who was simply great - very dedicated, always making sure we got the best chances of seeing wildlife and very respectful of the environment - clearly loves his job. Alex now has his own tour company as well, Green Amazon Tours.

After having a marvelous time visiting Machupicchu, we the 6 decided to take a Jungle tour, at the very first moment we were very keen to do the 4 days or 5 days Manu Jungle Tour due to all the agencies we talked they offered us this 4 days or 5 days tour showing and saying us amazing things together with great pictures of this tours, Only Alberto from Local Trekkers took his time to explain every single details of this tour so finally we decided to take the 6D/5N towards the Reserved Zone which finally we saw that there was a great difference between the cultural zone and the reserved zone and it is in the latter where we really appreciate the Amazon rainforest in its maximum splendor. We saw Cock of the rocks, giant river otters, blue and red macaws on the clay lick also we saw caimans, kapibaras hundred of birds among others but the most amazing animals we saw were 2 Jaguars, I don't know how we saw them since the rainy season is starting now, I think we were again really lucky. We were also fortunate to be only 6 of us which made the whole experience even more special. We saw another group that they were 15 people from a different company and they were not having a great time because of the large group and their no experienced guide. Local Trekkers Peru has well educated guides, boat driver and cooks are very knowledgeable and experienced. We are glad that we were able to plan an 6 days tour as you do not get into the Reserved Zone with the 4 days or 5 days tours and the road is still there and back two days. The lodges are all clean and provide for the wilderness more than enough comfort. Our only demand we asked to have Timoteo as our cook and Ronald as our guide because of the great experience we had along the Inca Trail with them In Summary we are very happy that we took the 6D/5N. this experience cannot be described in words and we have to thanks Local Trekkers Peru for a lifetime experience we had in Manu National Park.

The Manu Biosphere of Peru is a remote and beautiful jungle experience. Because of its remoteness, usual creature comforts are some times compromised, but the staff and crew do everything possible to give you a top notch experience. They must bring all food, cooking gear, and supplies to each Lodge. We are birders so went for that purpose. Our guide, Wilfredo, was not only extremely knowledgeable about birds, but also mammals, jungle plants and trees and insects, and the fascinating symbiosis that exists between so many insects and plants, animals and plants, etc. There were so many rewarding individual bird sightings: quetzal, cock of the rock, king vulture, hummingbirds, trogans, tanagers, etc. The highlight was the Tambo Blanquillo Macaw Clay Lick, with parakeets, parrots, and red green macaws in a raucous delight!

As is the case in most rainforests, the further you travel from civilisation the more wildlife you’re likely to see. Several tour companies offer 3 or 4 day trips to Manu. In my opinion choosing one of these short trips would be a complete waste of time. Firstly, the minibus journey from Cusco to Atalaya Port (where you get on the boat) takes at least a day (the last couple of hours of which are along a very scenic road which happens to be rated as one of the best roads in the world for birding). From Atalaya Port it takes a further two days by boat to get to the Reserved Zone of Manu (beyond Limonal Ranger Station where all boats must sign in). Obviously the return journey also takes two days on the river and one on the road to get back to Cusco. This Manu Reserved Zone (around the Casa Matsinguenka lodge) is the wildlife hotspot and is totally worth the trip to get there, especially Salvador Lake which is just amazing! However, during the first and last couple of days of the boat trip to get to and from this area you won’t see a lot wildlife (other than herons and egrets). The 3 or 4 day trips don’t allow enough time to go as far as the actual Manu Reserved Zone, so choosing one of these trips is really a bit like taking a trip to Disneyland but turning around as soon as you get there and immediately returning home without ever entering the park. Another thing to note is that the boats have to travel pretty fast to cover the large distances involved. This, combined with the fact that in most places the only water deep enough for the boat to travel in is in the centre of the river often far from the bank, means wildlife spotting along the route is quite challenging, at least until you reach the deeper, slower moving waters of the river in the Manu Reserved Zone.
