This journey offers a spectacular descent from Peru's Andean mountains through the cloudforest and down into the rainforest. It is a wonderful trip for seeing the birdlife, plantlife and wildlife of these diverse regions and ecosystems.
You will see valleys at high altitude where farmers eek a living from this tough terrain, grasslands and elfin forest, the unique cloudforest, tropical valleys where tropical fruits and coca are cultivated, and you'll end in the prolific, lush Amazon rainforest.
You'll travel by road and by boat, and return from the forest by plane.
Manu Wildlife Centre is in one of the bio hotspots of the world, and offers some truly amazing wildlife viewing in its proximity.
This is a nature and wildlife adventure par excellence, and has a real sense of journey too.
