  • We spent a week in Manu Park with Wild Watch Peru and had a great time. The wildlife both around the lodge and in the Manu Park was abundant and amazing. From our cabins, we saw monkeys, parrots...  more »

  • We went to Manu National Park with Bio Manu Expeditions and had a terrible experience. My girlfriend got food poisoning and no care was given by our guide or the cook or the manager of Bio Manu Expeditions. We also spent 3 nights in a lodge in a banana plantation. This place was not the jungle experience we were after. We also had our time wasted in the reserve, with which we were only given one day. We were promised two days in the reserve, but the whole itinerary was changed from day one. The guide rushed the boat trip down the river and missed the wildlife. He also rushed the walks and took two siestas that day. We also witnessed animal cruelty on a night walk, where he killed a tarantula and tore its log home to pieces in order to get it out and show us. This was a terrible piece of animal cruelty and we had to walk away. Avoid this company at all costs.
  • Went on a 4d/3n tour in Manu National Park it felt fairly authentic and you got to spend a lot of time in the jungle. The food at the lodges were great and well crafted with little resources. The guides were very knowledgeable and accommodating to specific wants. The activities are good, you can hike up a mountain for a couple hours to see monkeys or take a motor canoe to a good hiking spot with balsam rafts and get lucky and see a white cayman. Overall I was happy with my time in Manu but be aware it is a 10+ hour bus ride from Cusco.
