I'm a parrot lover and the macaw and parrot viewing at both Manu and Tambopata was wonderful, still brings tears to my eyes!

Tribes Overall:

Wonderful country and the itinerary was exactly what I had hoped it would be.

Tribes Service:

Paul pulled together a great tour. His advice on the order and duration was excellent.


All the guides throughout the holiday were really good.

Social & Environmental Responsibility:

As always on these types of holidays it is distressing how many plastic bottles are thrown away. I was pleased that in the jungle there were reusable water bottles and filtration systems.

The places you stayed

Pakaritampu gardens



Lovely location. Good food. Nice room. Lovely peaceful garden to sit in.

El MaPi enxtrance

El MaPi


Best bed of the holiday by a long way!

Manu Wildlife Centre cabins

Manu Wildlife Centre


It's a long way to get there and it's pretty basic when you do but the feeling of being in the middle of nowhere is great. Living by candlelight adds a different dimension. The staff were lovely, best food of the holiday: healthy, beautifully presented and plenty of it.

Refugio Amazonas premium room

Refugio Amazonas


I had a lovely room here - well worth your recommended upgrade. Service great. Food good - homely and healthy but a bit mass produced. Being open to the elements it got me over my fear of bugs!

Tambopata Research Centre

Tambopata Research Centre


I loved the feel of this place. Really welcoming and like being on camp. Food was good. Macaws hanging around and close which was lovely.
