Manu Reserved Zone 7 days, A Journey to the Deeper Part of the Amazon Jungle!
Manu Reserved Zone 7 days–If an authentic exotic and tropical landscape figures big in your travel dreams. so Manu probably the most famous national park in Peru is the answer. Covering nearly a million hectares, Manu National Park & Biosphere Reserve is the second-largest protected area in the country and one of the largest in South America. and it’s one of the best places in South America to see a stunning variety of tropical wildlife.
Progressive in its emphasis on preservation, Unesco declared Manu a Biosphere Reserve in 1977 and a World Natural Heritage Site in 1987. One reason the park is so successful in preserving such a large tract of virgin jungle and its wildlife is that it’s remote and relatively inaccessible to people, and therefore has not been exploited by rubber tappers, loggers, oil companies or hunters.
Remote Manu, about as close as you’re likely to come to virgin rainforest anywhere. It’s incredibly varied habitats include Andes highlands, cloud forests, and lowland tropical rainforests. One hectare (2 1/2 acres) of forest in Manu could have 10 times the number of species of trees found in a hectare of temperate forest in Europe or North America, and Manu has the highest bird, mammal, and plant diversity of any park on the planet. The reserve is one of the world’s finest for birding (greater even than all of Costa Rica); other wildlife includes giant river otters, cocks-of-the-rock, and perhaps 15,000 animal species, as well as native Amerindian tribes that remain untouched by the modern world. The reserve zone contains the lower Manu River, the Río Alto Madre de Dios, and a number of beautiful oxbow lakes. About 1,000 bird species — about a quarter of all birds known in South America and 10% of all species in the world — and more than 200 species of mammals have been identified. Also found in the park are at least 13 endangered wildlife species, including black caimans, giant river otters, and ocelots. Botanists have claimed that Manu has a greater number of plant species than any other protected area on earth–Manu Reserved Zone 7 days

We Explore Farther… All the Way to the Amazon Jungle Pristine

On foot and by boat, we explore the Manu National Park that encompasses the most pristine part of the Amazon region in searching for abundant and diverse wildlife. You won’t find a more remote rainforest experience like this, it’ll be an experience of a lifetime.

Here we begin to see the variety of wildlife and vegetation unsurpassed in the world: orchids, begonias, lichens and misty shrubs and gargantuan trees, incredible birdlife like quetzals, trogons, tangaras, toucans and Peru’s beautiful national bird the Cock of the Rock (Rupícola Peruviana). We might also see one or more of the 14 types of monkeys living in the forest, most likely the wooly, howler and capuchin. All meals included, except breakfast.

Overnight will be in our private Hide (a camouflaged stilted house in the middle of the jungle) where you can experience the sights and sounds of this amazing area in the solitude of the trees. Strategically located nearby is a salt like for mammals and when we take turns taking guard, we can all be awake to witness night animals like tapirs, deer, armadillos, paca (wild pigs) and monkeys that visit to nourish themselves on the mineral rich clay.
After our amazing night at the Hide, we’ll wake up early hike back through the jungle to take up watch on the river bank opposite the salt lick. With good conditions, we’ll be able to see parakeets, Green parrots, splendid macaws, and even Otters rolling past for their morning dose of nutrient rich clay.
Breakfast will be made using local goods from the forest. With the jungle all around us, we will take a hike through the canopy in search of turtles and poison dart frogs, and listen to and watch for any of the 5 species of monkeys that live in the area. Birds are abundant – our walk will be lauded by toucans, macaws, woodpeckers, hummingbirds, and many other birds that you won’t see in other parts of the world.
Overnight at Manu Rainforest Lodge.
5:00 AM starts our river boat trip toward the Manu Reserved Zone, a natural Paradise! We’ll have breakfast onboard so we use every minute to spot wildlife along. After about 4 hours traveling downstream we arrive where Boca Manu River changes course, travelling upstream to Rio Manu (Manu River) we’ll have the best chance to spot the elusive jaguar, foraging capybaras, and dozing of caimans along the river’s banks; a multitude of birds: egrets and great herons fishing, macaws with their dazzling colors, toucans, eagles, and more (your guide will help you spot them!) Wildlife is unpredictable but with so much here, we’ll definitely have a super day!

Small Groups Mean Intimate Nature, Wildlife and Cultural Encounters. Could you imagine trying to hike silently along an isolated trail, carefully not disturbing shy wildlife, with 10 or 20 other travelers? Or walking on a remote area to explore the pristine wilderness with dozens of other tourists at your side? We know meaningful nature encounters must be undertaken in small groups. That’s why our trips come with an average of just four travelers, by far the smallest groups in the tourism industry across the country. This not only guarantees you more personal close-up wildlife experience, but a less-impact presence on the earth’s brittle natural places we love.
We are very confident the quality of our Manu Reserved Zone 7 Days will get your expectations and that you will savor the best possible of cultural travel experience, nature travel experience, and adventure travel experience if you are dissatisfied, we’ll happily give you credit for an extra trip or for a future journey. It’s, to our knowledge, the best guarantee in the travel business.
We don’t believe any other tour companies make comparable trips when you take into account our unique itineraries and signature itineraries, impressive locations, small groups and quality Trek Leaders / Tour Leaders. But, should you come across a similar itinerary or matching itinerary of our quality at a cheaper price, even within 45 days after booking with us, we will happily refund the difference. It’s how we deliver our promise.
While other tour companies generally cancel their trips due to low participation of travelers or outsource to other big group tour operators for their travelers, we guarantee that we will never cancel a trip because of low signing-up or participation for the departure date neither get our travelers to other tour operators! This makes to our travelers the assurance and peace of mind to know their travel plans are insured and guaranteed.
Probably you will see that most of the tour operators mention it on their websites that are local tour companies, however, if you research a little deeper you will find out that’s not true, they might be although half of the operation is done from here and another half abroad, they even have NorthAmerican phone number or European phone numbers, which is a clue to find out, we are not against the foreigner companies or half foreign companies, what we are against is that they lie.
In Cusco exist just few truly local tour operators. If you did not know, foreign companies come to Peru to get rich without paying a General Sales Tax or Tax Contribution to our country. If you did not know that, according to the United Nations, for every US $100 spent on a tour in a developing country or foreign travel companies, only $5 stays in the local economy. Normally, almost all of the money flows back to large companies operating outside the destination countries. As we are a local family enterprise, we guarantee that your travel expenditures will support the local economy, and improve the lives of Peruvians through contributing to general sales tax.
Be a responsible traveller! Let’s make this world a better place for everyone and for everyone that lives in it! The natural environments that we travel to are fragile and abundant with beautiful culture and traditions that are often reliant on tourism. We have a responsibility as travelers to minimize the impact of our presence, protect what is delicate, and leave a positive influence everywhere we can.
As a locally owned and based Peruvian tour company, we integrate these practices into our in-country operations we are aiming for a style of travel that makes the world a better place for everyone, and for everyone that lives in it. Since our very first days as a tour operator, responsible business has been at the heart of what we do. Peru Summit Adventures is committed not just to treading lightly, but to making a real difference by helping and investing in local communities, education initiatives, environmental conservation projects. These values are not more than just words, they are ingrained in the culture and philosophy of our crew, daily operations of Peru Summit Adventures trips, and at our office too.
