Manu Wildlife Center

Manu National Park, Peru

Prices From: $1240

Manu Wildlife Center (MWC) is located in the remote and wild Manu Wilderness of Southeastern Peru. Amidst spectacular forest and incredible scenery, the density and diversity of animal and plant species reach a peak in the extreme western Amazon, near the foot of the Andes. A 35-minute flight from Cuzco to the mouth of the Manu River and a 90 minute motor-canoe ride down the Madre de Dios River brings you to the single best wildlife destination in the entire Amazon: Manu Wildlife Center.

The Lodge is incredibly remote and wild. Wildlife enthusiasts, birders and nature photographers find Manu worth the extra effort and traveling time. The Manu Wildlife Center offers 3 Day/4Night Programs and 4 Day/5 Night Programs whose activities include a visit to Manu's only accessible macaw clay lick, a visit to the world's largest Tapir clay lick, Ox Bow lakes with giant otters and unlimited access to a large canopy observation platform. Accommodation is all inclusive including transportation, food and tour activities.

Manu Wildlife Center is located east of the Manu River on the north bank of Madre de Dios River. The Lodge contains 22 double-occupancy fully screened private bungalows, separate complexes with hot showers and toilets, a large fully screened dining room and a charm bar with hammocks for relaxing. Manu Wildlife Center has no electricity. Lighting in the communal areas is by kerosene lamp and candles with the paths around the lodge lit by kerosene lamps. Lighting in the guests bedrooms is by candle. An 110V & 220V generator is available from which camcorder batteries can be recharged.
