Cock of the Rock Lodge

Peruvian Amazon

Rating: Simple    

Cock of the Rock Lodge overview

Cock of the Rock Lodge is named after the Andean Cock-of-the-Rock, Peru's bright red national bird, and is located on the forested eastern slopes of the Andes. It is owned by the Peru Verde Conservation Group, a non-profit non-government organization involved in rainforest conservation projects.

Cock of the Rock Lodge consists of 12 double bungalows, simply furnished and with screened windows and mosquito nets. Furniture includes bedside tables and writing tables. All the bungalows have private bathrooms with limited hot water. 

Meals are served in the raised dining area overlooking the gardens, allowing you to observe birds, monkeys and squirrels as you dine. You'll enjoy local dishes and will be offered wine with dinner. There's a pleasant lounge where you can sit and chat to other guests. 

One of the main attractions is the lek near the lodge where the male Andean Cock-of-the-Rock presents his mating display, an elaborate dance to attract females each morning and evening. There are many other species of birds to be seen here and you can follow numerous walking trails through the gardens, wildlife spotting as you go. 

A visit to Cock of the Rock Lodge can be combined with a visit to Manu National Park and/or Manu Wildlife Centre.

Mr. Tim Somervell (29/04/2015)

"Only clients there what a wonderful place in the middle of no where. Saw 6 Cock of the Rock displaying at the lec"

Mrs Simone Fields (26/05/2014)
"I loved it so much but we weren't there long enough. Lovely rooms,(cabins)excellent food. Stunning surroundings. Needed another 2 days."
Nick and Harriet Lear (11/10/2010)
"We had an exciting time getting here along a road that has to be experienced to be understood. We had to leave our driver with the luggage due to a landslide and walk the last two or three kilometres, arriving as it was getting dark. Not the easiest when your torch is in your luggage and you can't find the matches. But it was great, though we actually had better sightings of the Cock of the Rock while at Inkaterra Machu Picchu, including two females."
Susan Murray (15/09/2010)
"A good part of the trip"
