Located in the Amazon it’s the main water source that consists of the entire drainage basin of the Manu River. There are few human settlements near or around the park. The Peruvian Government does not permit hunting or fishing. The Bio-Tourism is strictly controlled and visitors are only allowed into the park if accompanied by a registered guide related to a registered tour company.

Manu National Park 4 days, consists of two zones: the Manu National Park, which can only be entered by professional biologists with a special permit; and the Manu Reserved Zone, which can be entered by tourists, but only with an organized tour. There are buffer zones around the park, often referred to as the Cultural Zone, although this is no official protection for this area. The Manu National Park covers 1,534,865 hectares, and the Manu Reserved Zone another 270,000 hectares. Manu contains 12 different ecological zones ranging in altitude from 300m to 5,000m, meaning that it has an incredible variety of flora and fauna.wild life
In 2000, almost 3,000 visitors entered the Manu reserved zone compared with 20,000 who visited the Puerto Maldonado spot. Although there are no official limits on the number of tourists, the expense of visiting Manu means that numbers are self-limiting. Additionally, companies are strictly controlled and are only allowed to visit certain parts of the reserved zone, and even then only allowed in for three days at a time.
Tours to the Manu reserved zone are expensive, ranging from about $500 for the cheapest, taking the bus in and out, to almost $2,000 when staying in one of the lodges. The reason for this is that the transport costs are expensive due to the distances involved.. However, it is sometimes possible to get discounts on official prices. If an agency has a tour leaving in a day or two and still has spaces, it may be willing to offer a discount to try and fill a place. It can be worth shopping around the see if this is the case.
