the next day in our rustic, Manu machupicchu tours lllama Tented Camp in the heart of the Manu Biosphere Reserve. In Manu we
navigate the waters of an isolated oxbow lake, home to Giant Otters, caimans, monkeys and an endless variety of
birds. Our trip ends downriver with the Amazon’s finest viewing opportunities, at Manu Center. This
lodge offers the finest Tapir viewing in ALL the Amazon, as Tapirs are nightly visitors to the lodge’s mud wallow. After
a canoe and van journey we return to Cusco or Lima aboard in a commercial flight.

Day 1:

Flight from Lima or Cusco to Puerto Maldonado-Colorado-Manu Center. After your arrival by the
commercial flight to the airport in Puerto Maldonado, our service begin with your reception followed with a transfer
service by van to Santa Rosa Village, we will get there in about two-hours and a half journey, you will cross the
Inambari river for a 15 minutes boat trip to Puerto Carlos, here you will start your overland journey to Boca Colorado
for 45 minutes by car, followed by four hours and a half motorized boat journey ride upstream the Madre de Dios
river; in between we plan on a delicious boxed lunch at the beginning of the boat journey to Manu Center.
Later we make our first acquaintance with the rainforest, exploring some of the 30 miles of forest trails that surround
the lodge. We have an excellent chance of encountering some of the 12 species of monkeys, including the Spider
Monkey and Emperor Tamarin, which inhabit the surrounding forest.
After dinner there will be an enchanting night walk along the trails, in search of the nocturnal birds and animals of the
rainforest. (Box Lunch, D)

Day 2:

Manu Center to Manu National Park (Manu Tented Camp). Another early start (inevitable on
expeditions); a delicious breakfast is followed by boat journey in the motorized canoe trip up the Madre de
Dios River. We make a short visit to the village of Boca Manu, riverside capital of the remote and sparsely populated
Peruvian province of Fitzcarrald. The main activity here is building dugout boats for travelers on the river, and we see
how these sturdy craft are made. Logging is prohibited here, so the resourceful villagers work entirely with lumber
brought downriver by floodwaters.
Now we turn northward up the chocolate-brown waters of the Manu River into the lake-rich lower Manu National
Park. The pristine quality of the forest is instantly apparent, with abundant birdlife and no signs of outside
development. We check into the park at Limonal ranger station and then proceed upstream, as our boat driver steers
skillfully through shallows and driftwood snags. Orinoco Geese and Horned Screamers strut on the beaches, Capped

and White-necked Herons patrol the shoreline, and countless sunbathing turtles dive off their log perches as we
After some six hours on the river we reach the Manu Tented Camp, a simple but comfortable low-impact lodge
nestled almost invisibly in the forest.
Time permitting, we will take a short walk before dinner to stretch our legs and enjoy our first encounter with virgin
rainforest. (B,Box Lunch,D).

Day 3:

Manu National Park (Manu Tented Camp): Cocha Salvador & Cocha Otorongo. Today we visit two
lakes near our camp. Park authorities determine the time of our visit to Cocha (Lake) Salvador; depending on this
schedule, we will visit Cocha Otorongo earlier or later in the day.
Our trail to Cocha Otorongo begins some 30 minutes downstream from the camp. This brief river journey to the
trailhead can always offer the chance of a thrilling sighting. Perhaps we will spot a family of capybaras, the
world’s largest rodent, looking like giant Guinea Pigs as they browse on the riverbank, or if we are very lucky, a
solitary jaguar might stalk slowly off an open beach into the forest, flicking its tail in annoyance at our intrusion.
On the short trail to the lake we may spy one or more of the park’s 13 monkeys species leaping through the canopy
high above. And some of the trees, which form that canopy — such as kapok, ironwood and figs, will astound us with
the vast size of their trunks and buttressed root systems.
There are oxbow lakes,, formed when the river changed course, leaving a landlocked channel behind. The lakes are
abundant in fish and wildlife, and provide optimum habitat for caimans and the Giant Otter (Pteronura brasiliensis),
one of the Amazon’s most endangered mammal species. This lake enjoys maximum protection, and boats are not
allowed. However, it features two dock platforms and a 50ft tower from which to scan the trees and marshy
shoreline for monkeys, kingfishers, Anhinga (a large, long-necked waterbird), and countless other species. We have a
good chance of sighting the resident Giant Otter family as they dive for the 4Kg. of fish that each individual consumes
Cocha Salvador is the largest of the area’s lakes, at 3.5 Km, or some two miles long. It is also home to a family of
Giant Otters. We cruise the lake on a floating catamaran platform, which offers superb new perspectives of lake and
forest. The lakeside trees are often alive with monkeys; Scarlet, Chestnut-fronted and Blue-and-gold macaws beat a
path overhead; a variety of herons and egrets scout the water’s edge; and the reptilian eyes and snouts of caimans,
motionless as logs, may be spied beneath the branches. Somewhere on the open water or in among toppled
bankside trees, we may spot the sleek heads of the shy Giant Otters. These social animals play and fish together, and
we may see them sprawled on a fallen tree trunk, dozing or gnawing on a fish. (B,L,D).

Day 4:

Manu National Park (Manu Tented Camp): Very early, after breakfast, we will leave our Manu Tented
Camp, we reach upstream the Manu River until to Pakitza guard post during about 1 hour. We will explore the
pristine nature around Pakitza, also looking for more wildlife doing some activities such as boat rides to search for
mammals, caimans, birds, as well as we will explore the forest where birds and mammals are plentiful, but basically
we will spend this day searching some jaguars (if we are lucky), overnight at Manu Tented Camp. (B, box lunch, D).

Day 5:

Manu National Park (Manu Wildlife Tented Camp) to Manu Wildlife Center – Macaw Clay Lick Project and
Tapir Clay lick. We set off downriver at dawn. At this hour chances of wildlife encounters are excellent. We return to
the Limonal park station, to file our wildlife report before leaving the park. After reaching the turbulent union of the
Alto Madre de Dios and Manu Rivers and then the village of Boca Man. After ninety more minutes downstream we
arrive at Manu Center — the exciting final stop of our journey — in time for lunch.
After a delicious lunch we walk through the forest for some minutes, where we find the Macaw Lick project. The hide
provided with individual chairs and a convenient place for cameras and binoculars to a distance of 15 meters. In
groups of two and three the scarlet Macaws come flapping in, landing in the treetops as they eye the main stage
below. Later, we continue to explore and discover the rainforest, its lore and plant life, on the network of trails
surrounding the lodge, arriving in the late afternoon at our 34m/112ft Canopy Tower. On its platform we witness the
frantic rush-hour activity of twilight in the rainforest canopy, before night closes in.
Then we set off along the “collpa trail”, which will take us to the lodge’s famous Tapir Clay lick. Here at the most
active tapir lick known in all the Amazon, our research has identified from 8-12 individual 600-pound Tapirs who
come to this lick to eat clay from under the tree roots around the edge. This unlikely snack absorbs and neutralizes
toxins in the vegetarian diet of the Tapir, the largest land animal of Latin America. The lick features a roomy, elevated
observation platform 5m/17ft above the forest floor. The platform is equipped with freshly-made-up mattresses with
pillows. Each mattress is covered by a roomy mosquito net. The 10-m-long, elevated walkway to the platform is
covered with sound-absorbing padding to prevent our footsteps from making noise. This Tapir Experience is unique
and exciting because these normally very shy creatures are visible up close, and flash photography is not just
permitted, but encouraged. The hard part for modern city dwellers is to remain still and silent anywhere from 30
minutes to two or more hours. Many prefer to nap until the first Tapir arrives, at which point your guide gently
awakens you to watch the Tapir 10-20m/33-66ft) away below the platform. Most people feel that the wait is well
worth it in order to have such a high probability of observing the rare and elusive Tapir in its rainforest home. (B/L/D)
