Discover the Amazon’s mysteries and legends on this exciting trip to the vast national park in the Amazon Basin, which covers nearly 20,000 square kilometers (12,427 square miles) and is one of the best places in South America to see a stunning variety of tropical wildlife. Manu was designated a Biosphere Reserve by Unesco in 1977 and a World Natural Heritage Site by Unesco in 1987.

Manu: We Go Further… Pristine all the way to the Amazon Jungle. There are numerous Amazon Jungle itinerary options, each of which is unique. In order to focus on the most abundant wildlife areas, we travel far upstream to the confluence of two major tributaries, the Madre de Dios and the Manu, which form the headwaters of the world’s largest water artery. We explore the Manu National Park, which encompasses the most pristine part of the Amazon region, on foot and by boat in search of abundant and diverse wildlife. You won’t find a more remote rainforest experience like this; it’ll be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
