Manu National Park Tour - Manu Ecological Reserve - Manu Bird Watching
The Manu National Park, located in the southeastern part of Peru (between the Cusco and Madre de Dios regions) Is one of the largest tropical parks in South America. The park extends from the highlands to the jungle.
It covers 2 million hectares (4.5 million acres), and the territory is rich in flora and fauna with a huge variety of habitats including the high Andes, the cloud forests, and the lowland tropical rain forests.
Here we can observe the Giant Otters (Pteronura brasiliensis), the Black Caiman (Melanosuchus Niger), the majestic Jaguar (Panther a onca), the strange Spectacled Bear (Tremarctos ornatus), the Tapir (Tapirus terrestris), the Ocelot (Felis pardalis), as well as, 13 different species of primates, and an estimated one thousand species of birds including seven species of Macaws.
At the same time,10% of the world's vascular plant species, including several species of figs and palms, and countless species of medicinal plants, which are currently being catalogued by scientists, grow in Manu National Park.
A single hectare of forest in Manu can hold up to 220 species of trees, while a hectare of temperate forest in Europe or NorthAmerica may only hold 20 tree species. Manu National Park may be the most biologically diverse and protected park on the planet.
