  Has anyone been to Manu in Peru?


Many times!!  All the time!
There are many good lodges within the Manu area at different price ranges,
most not inside the actual reserve, but the birding is just as good in the
boarder area.
Distances to cover are however quite great, almost all trips done to Manu
are too short to fully enjoy the area. Quite typically however, is that
score well over 500 species of birds in 15 days.

Recently a new cheaper alternative has appeared for birders. We are helping
the indigenous communities getting into birding tourism.

Read this blog on the community project we are doing.

Now, if there is anyone that would like to come over and volunteer for this
project over some time let me know. It'd be birding Manu practically for
nothing (or very little), as long as it contains minimum 3 weeks of
commitment to the community lodges.
