The Manu Wildlife Center
The Manu Wildlife Center is a world-renowned lodge among nature lovers for its incredible wildlife-watching opportunities. You will enjoy guided tours to one of the largest and most photogenic macaw clay licks in the Amazon Rainforest where you can see hundreds of these large, bright and colorful parrots.
You will also visit a tapir clay lick to have a very high chance of spotting South America’s largest land mammal, tour beautiful Amazon lakes to see the resident giant river otters, enjoy miles of rainforest trails to spot several different monkeys and colorful birds, and have a 10% chance of spotting wild jaguar.
The Manu Wildlife Center is positioned in a section of continuous rainforest with the Manu National Park called the Amarakaeri Reserved Zone. Visitors are prohibited within the national park itself, however, you can combine the Manu Wildlife Center with the Manu Tented Camp inside the Manu National Park Reserved Zone on the Manu Adventurer tour.
You can observe both the macaw clay lick and tapir clay lick from specifically made hides to capture fantastic photographs of these Amazon icons without disturbing the wildlife. The lodge is recognized as one of the “most intensive wildlife experiences in the Amazon Rainforest” by Condé Nast Traveler because of the many Amazon icons to see.
