Fodor's Expert Review Campsite Sachavaca

70 km (44 miles) northwest of Boca Manu, Cocha Salvador, Manu Biosphere Reserve, , Madre de Dios, Peru

This bare-bones camp operated by the tour company Pantiacolla is near Cocha Salvador, an oxbow lake in Manu's Reserved Zone, which is home to an amazing array of wildlife. Platforms under palm-thatched roofs and surrounded by mosquito screening are just big enough to fit two single beds; toilets and showers are housed in a separate structure. Meals are served in a screened dining hall with a thatched roof. The reward for enduring such spartan accommodations is the chance to see more than 100 bird species, various types of monkeys, and countless other animals.
