The 4 day Amazon trip offers a great chance to observe the Wooly monkeys that hang about the cloud forest. Looking up you will see, and definitely hear the colorful birds; Quetzal, Mountain Toucans, and the unmistakable Cock of the Rock.

  • River  Transportation

Certainly a memorable experience, we provide motorized canoe boats to travel down the river with experienced native drivers, (canoe type of 14 meters long – 2 meters wide). The boat has a roof to prevent any sudden rain and sunshine. Life jackets are provided, and medical first aid kits.

We embark from the Atalaya Port & Town, to travel downstream for somewhat 2 hours. Reaching the vicinity of Machuwasy Lagoon at elevations below 500 meters above sea level.

  • Caves at Guadalupe Lodge.

We offer exclusive excursions to the caves/canyons at Guadalupe Lodge. The caves are only a 10-minute walk from Lodge. Originated by creek erosion, the canyon is a natural formation. This area has cut into the mountain, and as a result has created an environment that harbors species that evolved in the darkness: bats, tailless whip scorpions.  Also, taking a walk during the nighttime would be an especially amazing opportunity to look for the: dwarf caimans and the Water Opossum, which is the only species of aquatic opossum in the Neotropical.

4 Day Amazon Tour Peru

  • Exploring the Machuwasy Oxbow Lake.

We arrange private transportation to the lake’s trailhead. Trails go along riverine forests densely populated by fig trees, bamboo, cecropias, and heliconias. While exploring these trails, look out for the squirrels and Dusky Titi monkeys.

Machuwasy is a small oxbow lake. It attracts a large number of Amazonian birds such as egrets, hoatzins, herons, kingfishers, rails, crakes, horned screamers, caciques, oropendolas, caymans, capybaras, and giant river otters.

The lake sits on an elevation of around 500 meters approx, so this makes it the first oxbow lake along the Manu route and probably the most visited by tourists who travel into the Manu Cultural Zone.

Visitors of the lake sign in to enter the area, (and the cost is covered by the operator). One great experience here, which you don’t want to undoubtedly miss. Is boating on the lake itself, another mode of transport. Above all, you will get the chance to choose one of the rafts! Made from trunks of balsa wood tree tied in line. The boats are moved by a long stick, so you’re in charge, good luck navigating. Take a seat and start moving. (There’s no roof on top so it is advisable to take a wide hat or cap).

Hoatzin Kingdom

The Hoatzin Kingdom is exactly what it says on the tin. These bizarre “Hoatzin” birds that you will see around this Kingdom can be seen in large flocks. Quite a tolerant animal, and for that reason, these birds can be observed at close range. Even more, you can easily get clear and bright pictures of them while exploring this beautiful lagoon in Manu.

      The trip was perfect! I enjoyed the beautiful landscapes along the tour. The additional activities were all fantastic and privately guided, and we enjoyed the focused attention during our river tubing, biking, horses back riding. All of the lodgings were fantastic. A tropical rain hit the Manu area on the day of our arrival at Guadalupe Lodge and the guide Luis flipped our entire trip to avoid missing any activities. Thanks for a nice experience :)

      I went to Manu last year with Wild Watch Peru and it was a magical experience. Herbert and Esau were absolutely incredible, lovely, and extremely knowledgeable about the animal species. Louisa our cook was fantastic and everything she cooked up was delicious and filling. The whole tour was completely tailored to us and we never felt rushed- we could enjoy ourselves and take as many pictures as we wanted without being moved on before we were ready. The accommodation was beautiful and clean (a lot more luxury than we were expecting to find in the rainforest). We saw many species of birds, capybaras, monkeys, caimans, reptiles, spiders, bats and so much more. :)

      Wild Watch Peru helped us plan our 4 days tour in Manu and execute our dream! They were awesome to work with and listened to our goals and desires to tailor a vacation just for us. Every aspect of our vacation in the Manu rainforest was magical and seamless! Highly recommend! Will use them again when we return someday!
