Join us on this extraordinary Peruvian adventure as we visit Inca ruins,
explore the cloud forest and experince the dynamics of the rain forest.
Our adventure will start in Cusco, then move on to Manu National Park
with its cloud forest, salt licks, wildlife and pristine rain forest. We
will fly home from Puerto Maldonado. Manu National Park protects
grasslands, mountainous cloud forests, and tropical lowland rain
forests. It is one of earth's most biodiverse places. Its natural riches
include more than a thousand species of birds and nearly 290 species
of reptiles and amphibians. The park is a sumptuous, extravagant,
overwhelming landscape. The region is traversed with tapirs, 14 species
of primates and crowned by flights of scarlet macaws. Butterfies are
everywhere; scarlet knights, giant blue morphos and tiny transparent
glasswings. This trip has several major wildlife attractions; the Macaw
salt lick and the world's only know Tapir lick where in the comfort of
mattresses and mosquito nets w may watch the largest of all South
American land mammals visit a mineral lick. Plus we will visit Oxbow
Lakes with floating camarans for observing giant otters and other lake
side wildlife. Two walk up canopy towers will get us up into the
rainforest canopy for more wildlife observation. We will have daily
walks through the cloud and rain forest areas as well as the opportunity
to hike up the mountain behind the Amazonia Lodge where we will be
spending two nights. We will have three nights at the Manu Wildlife
Centerand two full days to explore the forest, lakes and trails around
lodge . There are 30 kilometers of trails to hike! We will start our
adventure in Cusco amid Inca ruins and travel from there into the
wildlife filled rainforest.
