Fodor's Review

Though outside the Manu Biosphere Reserve, the Manu Wildlife Center is a great place to see animals: after all, this lodge is close to macaw and tapir collpas, and it has 48 km (30 miles) of trails that thread through the rain forest. The Center is jointly operated by InkaNatura Travel and Manu Expeditions, both of which are known for their expert guides and attention to details. Raised thatched-roof bungalows have screened walls and tiled hot-water baths. Electricity is available in the main building for a few hours each night. The lodge can be reached by a two-day journey from Cusco, via the Cock of the Rock Lodge, or a one-day trip from Puerto Maldonado. Though there is plenty to see here, continuing up the Manu River to InkaNatura's Manu Tented Camp or Manu Expedition's Romero Rainforest Lodge is recommended. Transportation and guide included in rates.
