You will spend most nights of your tour at our lodges and other good lodges located on strategic places, Bambu Lodge(private bathroom),Soga de Oro Lodge(private bathroom and hot shower), Hummingbird Lodge(private bathroom), casa Matsiguenka (share bathroom) Tambo Blanquillo (share bathroom), and Maquisapayoj – Tapir Lodge, in double rooms with private bathroom and hot showers. Camping options or expeditions are also available. With more than 20 years Guiding experience and 10 years operating Manu tours we have constantly improved our service and itineraries. Itineraries are flexible enough to maximize your chances to see wildlife and our guides will do their best to show you the marvels of the rainforest.
ATP works hard to limit the environmental impact. We return all waste to Cusco, buy local or peruvian products wherever possible and avoid buying tins or other material that is difficult to recycle. We recommend the Manu Biosphere Tour, which requires less boat fuel.
Working in Manu also means to work with local people, our boatmen and lodge staff are from Manu. We want to help build consciousness about the importance of the rainforest and promote rainforest conservation. We work with experienced, english speaking naturalist guides with many years of guiding experience in Manu. Most of our guides have grown up in the rainforest and have been working (in research projects) and living in the rainforest. They are very experienced in wildlife spotting, recognizing birds and mammals by sound and sight. They can imitate the animals to call them closer, as well as giving you the scientific names of the animals we see.
For further information about our guides see below.
We use binoculars and telescopes so that you can get a closer view of the animals, without disturbing them.
Our guides take one of the following Telescopes on the Manu tours:
Zeiss Diascope T FL, 85 mm
Leica Televid, 77mm
Bushnell Trophy 20-60x65mm
Kowa TSN 2, 77mm
Kowa TSN 1, 77 mm
Kowa 37 TSN, 77 mm
Kowa TSN 500, 68 mm
Our guides are bilingual (English/Spanish) and on request we can provide guides in German, French and Japanese.
