It is really a great place to visit, stay and enjoy. The variety of birds in the jungles around is just amazing. Some 1200 species are listed, out of which we could see some 250 species in just 3 days The national bird of Peru can also be seen from the hides near this lodge
The rooms are in cabins situated in beautiful grounds. They are lit by solar lamps which are very good, one in the bathroom would have helped but the torches we had dealt with this! The shower was a bit unpredictable but there was plenty of hot water. Meals are taken in the seperate dining room/bar and are very good, imaginative and well presented and you can watch the wildlife from here on the feeders! The paths around the lodge are rather uneven, difficult when wet! Probably the best lodge in Manu.
The Cock of the Rock Lodge is a smashing place. Fantastic birding opportunities, including Cock of the Rock Lek and gourmet standard food. Accommodation, in small cabins, is adequate but they are clean. Wifi and power charging is only available at certain times in the main building but that didn't detract. We really enjoyed our stay.
Excellent four day stay at this lodge. Terrific birding at the feeders and especially up and down the Manu Road. Electricity and wi-fi for 3-4 hours at the lodge. Solar lighting in the cabins. Two culinary school trained chefs provide superb food. Monkeys, Agouti, Targays visit the gardens. Flora and Fauna on the road is fabulous.
We booked a week long tour with Inkanatura Travel. This lodge was the first stop out of Cusco. Our private cabin with private bath had hot water, clean linens, mosquito nets for the beds (which I'm not sure were even necessary but made us feel like we were truly on an adventure.) The meals were borderline gourmet with fresh soups and vegetables incorporated in our dinner. Oh, and our before dinner entertainment consisted of watching a half dozen monkeys playing in the trees and on the roof of the lodge where meals are preserved.
