Visited here for 4 days as part of birding trip through Peru. A rustic, basic but very comfortable place to explore the area. The food was remarkably good and served with pride. The cottages are clean and comfortable with good showers. Mattresses are very firm but not uncomfortable. Staff are unfailingly kind and helpful. The birdlife is amazing. The only drawbacks are the very short periods with power and internet, as well as the reliance on candles for lighting in the main lounge and the cottages. The candles constitute a major fire hazard with no fire extinguishers in the rooms. Every effort should be made to upgrade to a LED/solar alternative for everyone's safety. For your own safety bring along a rechargeable LED lamp.

Before arriving you need to know there is no electricity in the cabins or the restaurant, a generator provides electricity at certain times of the day for charging batteries etc but if the lodge is busy there are not enough and charging is slow. Bring hanging LED torches! There is free wifi in the restaurant but it is slow! The water is heated individually by calor gas and is hot in the shower. The rooms are cabins, some with thatch roofs some with solid roofs, some of the thatch ones leaked! The breakfast is OK, eggs, pancakes, some fruit. Soups are lovely but the rest of dinner/lunch is basic, lots of chicken! The staff are young and work hard. Whilst we stayed we had storms and the restaurant roof leaked badly, meaning a large area was unusable! The lodge has forest trails and a canopy tower, the other facilities they offer are based at a private lodge, a boat ride away, these include 2 ox bow lakes, the macaw clay lick and a much better canopy tower. During our stay the river level was very low and our boatmen were amazing, they had to clear logs which blocked the landing area, Manu staff should have had this sorted as the river is the only way in!

Dear sir Sorrry for this bad moment but unfortunately the building material has to be purchased out of the conservation area and there was a delay in its delivery. Also the storms arrived before time and damaged the protection used while waiting for the matreial to arrive. Then the winds took out the ramianing protection This issue is beign sorted out and services are runing smoothly Again sorry for the inconvenience We are glad you were able to enjoy locations and trails visited

We stayed with our family of five in August 2019. Alfonso and his team were exceptionally hospitable, friendly and helpful, and the lodge is beautiful. Made the perfect ending to our 7-day tour of Manu. Highly recommended.

Visited as part of Manu Adventurer Tour--stayed on our first and last nights of the adventure. Lovely remote eco lodge on the Alto Madre de Dias River,.. was a very welcome site after our 8+ hours of travel (Van, boat, local taxi, boat) While there are 22 cabins according to the brochure....my two boys, our guide and I were the only guests staying at the lodge on our day of arrival....lovely and private with only the sounds of the jungle.. Food was excellent, cabins were clean and comfortable....staff were great. .....first night it was after dark when I finally showered (plenty of hot water--not that it was really needed in the tropics) I was surprised by a small lizard in my shower...honestly showering by candle light is more romantic in theory than reality... Trails were all well kept and marked (although we hiked with our guide when leaving the lodge area. Very nice wildlife viewing areas (Macaw clay lick project, tapir clay lick, and tree top blind) Definitely could have stayed a few days longer. Know before you go: No internet--take a deck of cards for your down time! Generator power for approximately 1 hr in the evenings for charging camaras, phones, etc. Main lodge relies on candles for light, as do the cabins (although there is a small solar lamp in the cabins) Don't forget a head lamp or flash light

Manu Wildlife Center is quite simply THE place to stay in Manu. It is a privately owned rainforest reserve, which forms part of the greater Manu Biosphere Reserve. It is located in the Cultural Reserved Buffer Zone, set aside for indigenous Amazonian peoples. The lodge is on the banks of the Madre de Dios River in pristine rainforest. Nothing prepares you for the magical feeling of seeing the lodge grounds for the first time after getting off your boat and climbing the stairs leading up from the river. It is truly remarkable that this place and its fantastic facilites even exist in the middle of nowhere! The rooms are old-school safari style cabins that suit the overall feel of the place well, and the huge common room/dining room is also quite Africanesque in its design. We had a wonderful few days here, with superb wildlife and bird sightings, memorable boat trips, long forest walks, excellent dining (the best on our 2 week trip in Peru) and a feeling that we could stay here forever!
