As the largest protected rainforest area in Peru, the Manu Biosphere Reserve is a tropical wildlife lover's dream. The reserve has greater biodiversity than just about anywhere else in South America, covering a wide variety of rainforest and cloud forest habitats.

Manu Highlights:

Tropical Birds
Manu is a birders paradise! Almost one thousand different species of birds have been recorded, and many of these birds wear Technicolor feathers that are a true sight to behold. Many consider Manu to be the single best birding destination in the world!

Large Mammals
The famed jaguar is elusive, which is why it is such a successful predator. Nonetheless, some lucky tourists do catch a glimpse of this wild mammal in its natural habitat. Wild boars, Tapirs and other large mammals are more easily spotted and it is always a thrill to be a spectator in the dance between predator and prey.

Listening to howler monkeys screeching and witnessing spider monkeys dance from tree to tree like an adventurous youth on a jungle gym are some of the treats a visitor to Manu gets to experience. Often, the monkeys are heard before they are seen, due to the thick vegetation of the forest. But once they reveal themselves, the average visitor is amazed at their acrobatics.

Manu Lodges and Packages:

Manu Wildlife Center Lodge
22 double-bedded bungalows make up this rustic lodge. The style of the bungalows echoes the homes of indigenous people, but with simple modern conveniences, like hot water and flush toilets. The lodge was built with the highest environmental standards, using sustainable materials from the local forest. The dining area and bar are a short walk from the private bungalow, past a lush Amazonian garden, where simple, nourishing meals await.

Manu Cloud Forest Lodge
Set alongside a creek, with a cascading waterfall nearby, the new Manu Cloud Forest Lodge is a respite in the mystical cloud forest. The private verandas offer a place to unwind, or head to the sauna to relax your muscles, tired from a day of wildlife spotting.
