Peru Amazon Tours – Manu Reserve National Park.

Explore the Madre de Dios with your own personal guide & river boat. Go lodge to lodge along the Madre de Dios; visit communities that are untouched by tourism & remote.

This trip is designed for the adventurous whilst also allowing you to see the best of the reserve wildlife.

Manu is divided into three zones:

  • Intangible zone” is only accessible to scientists and researchers
  • Reserved zone” is only accessible to a limited number of tour operators and their tours
  • Cultural zone” is more accessible and where local Amazonian peoples live in small communities.

The cultural zone is home to several native communities of Yine and Matsiguenka people who have initiated tourism projects. When visiting the park; chances to see wildlife are highest in the reserved tourism zone but wildlife experiences are also available in the cultural zone. This zone is the only place where you’ll be able to visit native communities. These communities still follow their traditional ways of life, such as hunter-gatherer traditions.

Jungle Expedition

Midway through the tour there is the opportunity to go through raw & uninhabited jungle. Camp and then navigate the river back to the port town of Atalaya. This is an expedition adventure through very rough jungle terrain; but provides the opportunity to see this environment in its natural form and experience the real amazon jungle.

There will be a pre-trek briefing held usually the evening before departure, at your hotel, to go over the details of the trek and any specific requirements not already captured
Prior to setting off we recommend you steer clear of street food and only eat in good restaurants, to avoid any stomach complaints. Peruvian food can be spicy, it can be strong and rich for many European diets. Likewise with tap water, it is largely untreated, so please avoid at all costs on arrival and stick to bottled water only or sterilised water if you have the right equipment.
We’ll ensure that we cater for all of your dietary needs, at the point of booking we’ll collect this information from you. We can secure special menu requests also for your trek party.
We are able to customise our treks to suit you, but usually our treks are guided by a professional bilingual guide, arriero (horseman) and mules to carry all equipment (passenger horses also available on request), and a mountain cook. They become a large part of your trekking expedition and it’s a great experience working together.
This is a really important part of your trip planning process, please find a link below which explains a little more about preparing for altitude.
Attached below are a couple of links which will explain how to prepare for your trip & trek in advance of your arrival. We recommend being prepared in advance to save time & stress whilst you’re in Peru.
From June through to the end of September, we’re offering one person free on all of our treks for group sizes of 3+. If you are a group of 2 you can add one person for free, or if you’re a group of 3 the third person joins free and so on.
