Manu Park Camp

Manu boasts the highest bird, mammal, and plant diversity of any park on Earth, including 1,000 of the world’s 9,700 bird species, 200 species of mammals, and 15,000 species of flowering plants. The most photogenic spectacles are frolicking Giant Otters, 1,000 parrots and macaws at a riverbank clay lick, dancing Cock-of-the-Rock, habituated monkeys, and huge Lowland Tapirs at a forest clay lick.

 

The Lodge

Manu Park Wildlife Center or Albergue Machiguenga is a simple but comfortable low-impact lodge located inside the Manu Park Wildlife Center. Nestled almost invisibly in the forest, it lies just across the river from the trail to Manu’s prime wildlife viewing location, Cocha (Lake) Salvador. This is the largest and most beautiful of the 13 oxbow lakes of the Manu River.

Our Manu Park Wildlife Center or Albergue Machiguenga features spacious double-occupancy room-size tents with hinged, lockable doors and solid wooden floors. Each tent measures 16.5x10x7 feet (5x3x2.2m), and all are fully screened, with a floor raised on wooden stilts to provide maximum ventilation and coolness, and protection from flooding and insects. A palm thatch roof shelter overhead completes the structure. Each of the extra-long twin beds has a mosquito net.

Our camp in Manu Park also features an elevated, screened dining room with wooden floor and private hot-water showers and flush toilets.
