Manu Birding 6 days

Manu Birding 6 Days and 5 Nights

The Manu Biosphere Reserve has the highest diversity of life on Earth and is one of the most important conservation units in the world. If you were to choose one of THE best birding trips in the world, this must surely be a candidate. The beauty of this trip is the variety of habitats visited ranging from orchid laden cloud forest where Spectacled Bears and Cock-of-the-Rocks still live unmolested, to untouched Amazon rainforest where 13 species of Monkey abound and Giant Otters still exist in the ox-bow lakes. A trip to Manu is a trip to one of the world’s great wilderness areas where wildlife is still plentiful and over 1000 species of birds have been recorded. We regularly record 600 species on this tour and often see Jaguar. Imagine birding on forest trails with mixed species flocks that might contain over 50 species and bumping into a troop of Black Spider Monkeys around the corner, or quietly paddling on a catamaran on an Ox-bow Lake with Giant Otters and teeming lakeside birdlife! On this trip, we actually SAW 6 species of Tinamou, 10+ true Peruvian endemics and many more range restriced species, 44 species of Hummingbirds, and recorded 43 species of true Antbirds. On top of this we recored 10 primates, and watched an Ocelot catch a Macaw at the lick. A marvelous trip.
