The cultural zone of the Peruvian Amazon Jungle is explored on our Manu National Park Tours from Cusco. This exclusive four-day jungle expedition was created to give you a comprehensive look at life in Peru’s Manu National Park.

Manu National Park is one of the largest parks in South America, and it may be found where the tropical Andes and the Amazon meet in southeastern Peru.  The Manu Biosphere Reserve protects about 2 million acres of land, including a wide range of ecosystems such as high Andean meadows, cloud forests, and lowland tropical rainforests. Manu National Park was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987. A protected area of considerable and global significance for biodiversity protection, it was quickly established there.

When should you go to Manu National Park?

The dry months of April through November are ideal for exploring the Peruvian Rainforest. Access by road becomes more challenging and forest routes may become flooded during the rainy season (February – March).

Are yellow fever, malaria, and malaria vaccinations necessary?

There have been no confirmed incidences of yellow fever, malaria, or dengue in Manu National Park; nonetheless, it is always wise to check with your doctor before planning an extended stay in a tropical area.
