Day 1: Cusco - Rainforest Lodge

We will depart from Cusco in our private expedition van, and drive all day through the Andes. The bus will stop frequently during the trip, to permit short visits to small Andean towns, the pre-Inca archaeological site known as Ninamarca, and the colonial town of Paucartambo, where there will be time for a short walk around the town as your guide explains the history of this fascinating community. Leaving Paucartambl, we will drive 3,500 meters, before descending into Manu National Park. Within the park, we will explore the diversity of cloud forest habitats, with their different species of plants, animals and birds. Vegetation here includes orchids and primitive ferns, and wildlife includes Peru’s national bird, the cock-of-the-rock, and the rare woolly monkey. In the evening we will arrive at Pilcopata.

Day 2: Exploring the Rainforest

After a comfortable night’s sleep at our lodge, we will leave for a 3-hour walk, exploring deep into the jungle. This is an opportunity to learn about the many species of medicinal plants used by local people. And if we are lucky, we may also spot large mammals, such as giant anteaters. Back at the lodge, after lunch, we will have the opportunity to choose to go for a refreshing swim in the river, or a comfortable bath at the lodge. After time to relax, we will head out for a trip to the lake, where we will board a wooden raft. This is an excellent location for birdwatching. We will return to the lodge in time for dinner. Optional night walk (to see caiman).
