Amazon Eco Lodge

Manu Birding Lodge is located next to Manu National Park with the highest biodiversity of any protected area in the world. Situated on the Banks of the Madre de Dios River the lodge is attached to a private reserve with over 500 hectares of pristine Amazon rainforest. Our visitors are mainly birders, wildlife enthusiast and photographers.

With over 532 bird species being recorded in the reserve and surrounding area, the total that may be seen during even a short stay inevitably being impressive. It would be impossible to overstate the magic of this Bed & Birding place featuring utterly stunning landscapes and a diversity of habitats; here are world-famous macaw and parrot clay licks situated closely. To visit Manu Birding Lodge is to experience one of the world’s great wilderness areas where wildlife is still abounds: 11 species of monkey, 35 large mammals, 76 reptiles and 100 amphibians. The Madre de Dios River probably has more than 600 species of fish.

The Amazon eco lodge provides a local, professional birding guide with visits to canopy towers, tapir and macaw clay licks. The hummingbird garden and two oxbow lakes are usually frequently visited by Amazonian birds and Giant Otters. For peace of mind, a handful of dedicated conservationists (who have been involved with professional birding for many years) are always available.

Manu Birding Lodge is a small independent enterprise, privately financed and operated. Management of the lodge and rainforest is very much ‘hands-on’, dedicating our talents and personal resources into everything; our driving force is conservation, not profit. A continuous commitment is to the challenge of forest conservation and the running of a fine lodge, returning profits to the land.

Giant-Otter

There is a strong dedicated to conservation and determination to save and preserve a sustainable piece of this fine rainforest; hopefully saving over 500 hectares and its wildlife before it disappears forever. Potentially, the perfect formula may have been found.

The land is a choice, sustainable and bird-rich piece of lowland rainforest, and as an important part of the conservation plan a comfortable and convenient Manu Birding Lodge has been built.

Manu Birding Lodge is owned and run by Amazon Birding.
The trails and scenery should delight everyone who enjoys experiencing nature first hand. All birds, mammals, butterflies and moths provide endless opportunities for photographers.

In addition to managing all the forest and land, and running Manu Birding Lodge, there is a project (working with people in nearby communities) seeking economic alternatives to slash and burn agriculture that threatens the area´s remaining rainforest. Help save Peru´s Rainforest! In time, it is hoped that Manu Birding Lodge private reserve will become a recognized base for scientific inquiry into ornithology, zoology, botany and other biological fields, within our own forest and in the nearby Manu National Park as well. 

Only a handful of people work at Manu Birding Lodge. Our backgrounds and training differ, but among our various talents. Despite all of this, there is still a shared value of loving conservationists and birders; all being involved professionally in birding for many years. 

Our driving force is conservation, not profit. We shall maintain our commitments to forest conservation and to running a fine lodge, returning profits to the land, and find the responsibility to be an exciting challenge.
