What Lodges will be used in 7 days tour?

During this exquisite 7 day tour, you get the chance to reside at all three lodges, possibly the best available lodge in the area.

Guadalupe Lodge

Located on the lush foothill forest over 580 m / 1, 902 ft on elevation. The lodge looks out over the magical palm forest with colorful blue and yellow macaws flying over, and thousands of oropendolas.  Furthermore, the Lodge lies within the booming bamboo forest. The lodge has private bathroom facilities and a bonus of showers with hot water. Lights and electricity, 24 hours from solar panels, and free WIFI. The garden flourished with beautiful greenery, the plants which aid in attracting the animals. The surroundings hold especially gorgeous views from the terrace of the dining room.

Casa Matsiguenka

Above all, what we like about this Lodge, is the beautiful environment that surrounds it. We have lovely rooms with peace and quiet in a remote setting like the other camps inside Manu National Park. In the rainforest, on the bank of the Manu River is where the Lodge lies. As a result, the wildlife spotting is exceptionally good. Each bungalow has two comfortable beds, equipped with mosquito netting. The bathroom facilities are shared in a separate building. Electricity is provided by solar panels. There is a separate building with a kitchen and a small dining room, where meals can be taken. The Lodge is special like no other. It is run by Matsiguenka Natives, which adds a more authentic air, making it different from the other lodge management.

Would be possible to travel during the Covid 19th time?

Of course, Manu National Park and most parks, reserves in Peru, are open for tourism again very important for you is that every single activity we do along this tour and expedition is 100 % private which means that only you,  your guide, your driver (assistance) and cook will be joining these activities, we concern to employs the minimum number of personnel without sacrificing the tour quality, overall giving you the best chances to enjoy watching wildlife and nature in the park and also to achieve a safe experience during this critical times.

Can be this tour optimized for Birdwatching?

Most of our tours are designed for general interest  (flora, fauna, landscapes, culture) however the private version of this tour gives you that chance to focus and approach much more into birdwatching pace, this tour option is 100 % flexible so the lodge location and route are favorable to observe a great number of specialties from the Andes to the Lowland rainforest.

What about the temperature?

The first night along the Manu Park you spend in the base of the cloud forest, at 600 m. Guadalupe Lodge where temperatures are about 18 degrees Celsius (64 F). In Manu’s lowland rainforest the temperature at night is normally around 24 degrees Celsius (75F) and during the day about 30 degrees Celsius (86F).

However, cold winds from Patagonia may reach the Manu rainforest and the temperature may lower to about 10 degrees Celsius (50F). These “friajes” are more common during the southern hemisphere’s wintertime (between April and the end of August).

This gives you a quick overview of locals’ lifestyles and colorful clothes.

The road includes various stops, so you can enjoy seeing the surrounding landscapes varying from high mountains to humid forests. The next disembark will occur in the village of Paucartambo which features a beautiful arched colonial bridge. From Paucartambo the altitude will keep on increasing and the setting gradually gets enveloped by a cloudy mist. The road leads you to Acjanaco pass consisting of the main gateway to Manu National Park where the environment dramatically changes from dry to wet valleys. Do not miss the splendid view when looking down toward the lowlands! The lush and misty cloud forest surrounded by massive rocks and waterfalls is perhaps the most fragile and threatened type of rainforest. In such an environment filled with lichens and moss-carpeted soil, spotting birds and monkeys will be the main target. You will get the chance to stare at a large variety of birds ranging from the Peruvian national bird, the brightly red Andean Cock-of-the-Rock displays to tanagers, toucans, or quetzals.
