Manu Wildlife Center
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”.
Manu Wildlife Center is incredibly remote and wild. Wildlife enthusiasts, birders, and nature photographers find Manu worth the extra effort and travelling time. The Manu Wildlife Center offers more wildlife sightings and a higher level of comfort, at a lower price than any other lodge in the the Manu region.
View monkeys and colorful canopy birds from strategically located canopy platforms atop a 120-foot high spiral staircase. From the Center's observation tower numerous canopy birds can be sighted such as Sclater's Antwren, White-shouldered, Masked, and Paradise tanagers, and Green and Black-faced dacnis.
Explore 40 miles of scientifically-designed forest trails surrounding the Manu Wildlife Center. Areas surrounding MWC are free from hunting pressure. Lowland deer, tapirs, monkeys, and the occasional Jaguar inhabit the forest trails. Caimans, piranhas, and anacondas live in the rivers and lakes surrounding Manu Wildlife Center.
Visit the only accessible Macaw and Parrot Lick in the Manu area just minutes from our lodge. From a silent, floating catamaran blind pioneered by our macaw researchers, we marvel at the emerald green and electric blue parrots and the gaudy Red-and-Green Macaws that arrive by the hundreds to gobble down the clay. This mobile blind allows us to approach within 20-30 yards (18-27 m) of the 25-foot-tall (8-m-tall) clay bank for excellent photo opportunities. No other Macaw Lick in the world currently permits such close-up, comfortable viewing of this spectacle of nature.
Visit the world's largest known Tapir Clay Lick. From the comfort and safety of a house blind elevated 13 feet above the lick, observe and photograph these wiggled-nosed, 550-pound beasts: the largest land animals in South America.
