Extend your Wildland Adventure tour in Peru on an Amazon adventure deep into Manu National Park and Biosphere Reserve, one of the best wildlife viewing experiences in the entire Amazon rainforest. Due to its ecological diversity Manu boasts among the highest recorded bird, mammal, and plant diversity of any protected area on Earth, including 1,000 of the world's 9,700 bird species, 200 species of mammals, and 15,000 species of flowering plants. Accompanied by a naturalist Peru guide, traverse a vast elevation range traveling by land over the Andes with overnight stops at the Cock-of-the-Rock Cloud Forest Lodge and at Boca Manu in the Manu foothills. In Manu National Park spend two nights at a secluded tent camp, located close to two wildlife-rich oxbow lakes. At the Manu Wildlife Center you hike on an extensive network of trails, take nocturnal forays through the forest to a tapir clay lick blind, canoe in oxbow lakes in search of giant river otters and climb a steel circular staircase into the rain forest canopy. Nearby are two macaw licks to photograph and observe colorful macaws from a blind. Fly to Cusco for an overnight at the end of the trip before departing for home via Lima.
Note: This trip can be combined with our Sacred Lands of the Incas
trip or included in a custom Peru Adventure with departures from Cusco on Tuesdays. To reserve this trip as a stand-alone itinerary, we need to include one additional night in Cusco on the Monday prior to departing for the Amazon.
