Jungle Treks and River Excursions
Attractions & Activities In Manu Biosphere Reserve
To enter the dense, hidden interior of the Manu Biosphere Reserve is to enter the home of some of the world’s most exotic and colorful flora and fauna. Take a guided amazon jungle tour into the high-elevation cloud forest region where, during mating season, you might witness a congregation of bright red-and-black Andean cock-of-the-rocks shimmying, shaking and singing in the hopes of winning the attention of a female.
The oxbow lakes, calm U-shaped streams cut off from the main river, make another fascinating jungle diversion. The peaceful waters and surrounding shores are a popular hangout for jungle dwellers, including squawking macaws and parrots, gregarious monkeys and the canine-like giant river otters.
Venture deeper into the reserve to Cocha Salvador lake, where, especially during the dry season (April through to October), nesting birds crowd the shores. It’s not uncommon to see 15-foot-long black caimans casually sunning themselves. A rarer sighting here might be the shy but stealthy jaguar, the largest big cat in the Americas.
