This short stay takes you to the remote lowland forests of the Amazon Rainforest. Here we are completely off grid, in this Biological Station used exclusively for research, until now. With 60 miles of trails and over 4000 registered species, this is the ultimate Amazon stay for wildlife.
Due to the remote areas we operate in, we run this expedition using a framework rather than a fixed itinerary.
This short stay is also available as an extension to our Manu expeditions
Travel along the river by boat transfer to reach this remote station. Here we are completely off-grid in the middle of one of the most important conservation areas in Manu, Peru.
Arrive at the station in time for lunch and meet the local crew who live here. This is an active research station and there is time to explore the jungle laboratories and learn more about the research projects happening here. In the afternoon, we head out to the trails to explore the various lakes, home to anaconda and caiman.
Don’t forget to look up – You might have some curious monkeys joining you on your trek. Our expert guides can spot wildlife from a mile away so you won’t be short on new species to discover along the way. There are new species registered here frequently so if you’re lucky you might find something even our crew have never spotted before.
After an afternoon on the trails, watch the sunset over the lookout point, enjoy a buffet dinner and fall asleep to the sounds of the rainforest in your private bungalow in the rainforest.
After breakfast we head back to the trails to continue exploring this vast area. The only way out from here is by boat, so in the afternoon we board our river transfer back to Puerto Maldonado.
This is protected land however the surrounding areas are covered with illegal mining. As we make our way back along the river, we will learn more about what is happening here, and the threat these mines are the the rainforest.
We’ve teamed up with a network of Biological Stations in Manu National Park to offer a unique range of experiences that directly support conservation in the region. By staying here, you are contributing to research and conservation projects ran directly by the biologists and students you will meet during your stay.
These properties are situated on large preserves of protected land, meaning that you are more likely to spot wildlife in the area, and learn why this ecosystem is so important to this region of Peru. What’s not to love? We’ll see you there.
