Manu Wildlife Center Construction
The Manu Wildlife Center is constructed from ecologically sound cedar-driftwood salvaged from uprooted trees washed down river by the annual floods.
The lodge is comfortable, with roomy private bungalows equipped with en-suite facilities and tiled hot water showers. The lodge offers a place where you can charge batteries, check e-mail, or have a drink under the high thatched roof of the grandly spacious all-wooden dining hall, bar, and lounge.
From Lima or Cusco take a commercial airplane to Puerto Maldonado (not included). From Puerto Maldonado, we take you over a short overland journey and then navigate up the Madre de Dios River by motorized canoe to reach our Manu Wildlife Center in Peru’s Amazon Rainforest, the single best wildlife lodge in Amazonia. The Manu Wildlife Center offers the Amazon’s finest short, in-depth wildlife safari.
There are many wildlife attractions located within the vicinity of the lodge that we can visit, including:
The world’s largest tapir lick.
The most photogenic and accessible large macaw and parrot lick.
Miles of monkey-rich trails through mature rain forest.
Two 120-foot-tall (35-m) canopy platforms.
Two mature lakes with abundant Hoatzins, caimans and Giant Otters.
Deep Experience in Manu
