At Encuentros Peru Adventure, we have designed this programme exclusively for those with less time in Peru. The four days 3 nights tour to Manu National Park will take you to the Biosphere Reserve. It will will offer you an authentic Amazon experience. You will be spending the nights in jungle lodges savouring local meals. 

This is one of the pristine areas of the Amazon rainforest. There are only a handful of people living here. This zone has strict restrictions on fishing and hunting. Also, they are strict regulations on tourism. To visit these zones a visitor must be accompanied by a registered local guide. Each tour guide must have a license to conduct tours here. 

Manu National park is so extensive that it is divided into three zones – Manu Biosphere Reserve, Manu Reserved Zone and Cultural Zone.

The zone where this activity takes place houses over 8000 species of flora, 400 species of birds and plenty of animals. It offers a unique experience of crossing on balsa wood rafts on the renowned Machuwasi lake. These rafts are hand made, using branches of a local tree. 

Apart from showing you the distinct flora and fauna of the region, the tour will also introduce you to the life of local Amazonian tribes.

This was a lifetime experience. Encuentros did a tremendous work in organising everything exceptionally well. The whole experience was way beyond my expectations.
