MANU JUNGLE TOURS – MANU PERU

Explore and discover the majestic nature of the

Manu National Park

In the Madre De Dios region of Cusco is the Manu National Park, located in the South of Peru. The park stretches across the highlands of Andes, cloud forests and jungle plains. Manu features a number of ecosystems and has elevation as low as 150m and as high as 4200 above sea level. Visiting the Amazon Jungle is a lifelong dream for many, the Manu National Park provides that opportunity. The Manu River snakes its way through the lowland forests and eventually joins the mighty Madre de Dios River. Encounter many and different things like microclimates, the native people, flora and fauna among others.

Demographics and Ecology

Demographics

There are a number of native tribes that occupy certain parts of Manu National Park. They have lived in isolation, mostly maintaining a nomadic hunter-gatherer culture. However, it is unfortunate that some of these communities are under threat because of diseases, violence from illegal miners (oil extractors) and loggers, as well as ecological devastations.  Known tribes include The Yora, Mashco-Piro, Matsiguenka, Harakmbut and Yine. 

Flora   

The plant life in Manu is varied and spread out. If we had to name every species it would be impossibe. Instead, we shall offer a brief summary. Manu is really hard to explain so we recommend you see it in person, it is spectacular.  There are over 162 families of different vegetation, 119 genera and 4385 identified species of plants and more than 1108 species of trees. The three different regions encourage the growth of the many plants found. The regions include the High Andean forests, cloud forest and lowland Amazon Forest.

Fauna

Manu National Park forms part of the Amazon Jungle. So in terms of the animals, look forward to seeing many different types of animals, the park has it all.  Whatever you find, it won’t disappoint.  In the lowland forest expect some Jaguars, Giant Armadillo, Spider Monkeys and many others. The mountains have animals like the spectacled bear, Andean fox, mountain Guinea pigs among other species. The estimated number of different species stands at 155 Amphibians, 132 reptiles (including the green anaconda), 210 fish, 300 ants, 650 beetles, 136 dragonflies and 1300 butterflies. Interesting fact:  The national bird of Peru is the Andean-Cock-of-the-Rock.

Weather 

The weather in Manu National Park is typical rainforest weather. It’s plagued with heavy rains and showers during wet season which is between December and April. However, during dry season which is between May and November, there is only a scattering of rain showers.  But the rain is not usually as intense and frequent as it is in wet season.

Wet season also brings cooler temperatures, although the difference in temperatures is not that significant. But when we put things in perspective, the temperature drop brings a welcome reprieve for the inhabitants of Manu National Park and its visitors. The average temperatures in dry season are around 36°C/ 97F in day and 18°C/64F at night, with humidity at times exceeding 70%. The average temperatures in wet season are around 30°C/ 86F in day and 14°C/57F at night. In short dry season is scotching hot, but with less rain and wet season is cooler, but is frequented by rain and drizzle. It is much more difficult to visit certain sections of the park because of possible landslides and road closers. 

Sam Coroporations takes you on a number of Jungle tours to be explored departing from Cusco or Puerto Maldonaldo.
