Tour Details
Manu National Park Tours

Our four days Manu National Park tours from Cusco offers a genuine Amazon Wildlife experience. We offer you the most with a bit of nature, culture and wildlife adventure. Manu National park is a popular Amazonian destination in Peru. This is because of its close proximity to Cusco and it houses plenty of animals, flora and fauna. 

Manu National Park is a UNESCO world heritage site. It is massive and is spread over 20,000 square kilometers (12,427 sq. mi). It is divided into three zones – Manu biosphere reserve, cultural zone and reserved zone. 

This tour primarily focuses on the biosphere reserve and cultural zone. It is home to many virgin forests and pristine areas. Among all the interesting sites the most raved one are the Macaws Clay Lick. It is a typical experience to sit and watch hundreds of colourful birds screeching and flying to eat clay from the cliff.

The clay here has nutritive benefits. As these birds primarily survive on fruits and seeds the clay helps them to remove the toxins from their body.

Join us to discover the best of the Amazon Rainforest on our four day tour to Manu National Park.
