Manu Wildlife Center , Peru

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.

Near the center, you can explore:

  • The world's largest tapir lick.
  • The most photogenic and accessible large macaw and parrot lick.
  • Miles of monkey-rich trails through nature rain forest.
  • Two 120-foot-tall (35-m) canopy platforms.
  • Two nature lakes with abundant Hoatzins, caimans and Giant Otters

The 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.

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

Manu Wildlife Center Is located in a private, 16,190 ha./40,000-acre rain forest reserve adjacent to the one million-acre protected area named the “Amarakaeri Reserved Zone”. The tapir lick is a comfortable ninety minutes on foot from the lodge, while the macaw lick is a half-hour boat journey plus a short walk away.

Visitors will welcome the amenities and comfort of this lodge, the only one in the Manu lowlands with roomy, private bungalows, en suite private bathrooms and tiled, hot water showers — especially if they are arriving from the rustic simplicity of Manu National Park.
