Day 2: Erika Lodge - Aguas Calientes - Boca Manu

Very early, you board your boat and make your way to Collpa, a clay wall by the river where a variety of parrots such as the blue-headed parrot, the white-eyed parakeet, possibly the Maracana Macaw, and others come every morning to substitute their diet with minerals and salts. After this activity, you return to Erika for breakfast, pack up, and board your boat again.

You will head down the Alto Madre de Dios River to the one of the hot springs of Aguas Calientes, which are surrounded by the magnificent Jungle. After relaxing in the water and a refreshing cold lunch, you will continue to the town of Boca Manu. During this part of your journey, you will see birds like skimmers, herons, several species of kingfishers, swallows, and flycatchers.

Day 3: Boca Manu - Reserved Zone / Lake Salvador

At dawn, you will make a brief stop at the Limonal Ranger Station where you will register in the Visitor’s Book which controls entry into the reserve. You continue on the Manu River towards the heart of the reserve for about four hours to Lake Salvador leaving all traces of civilization behind.

During this trip, you can often see a variety of bird species like macaws, herons, pink rosettes and with a little luck, capybaras, caimans, river turtles, monkeys, and hopefully some felines often sunning on the beaches or feeding in surrounding trees. In the afternoon, you spend your time walking in search of wildlife in this pristine forest.

Day 4: Reserved Zone / Lake Salvador

You will most likely be woken early by the howler monkey declaring his territory. Before breakfast, you will take a morning walk as the temperature at this time is more pleasant and it makes it a bit easier to find animals who are in search of food. You will explore Lake Salvador by catamarán and try to see the giant otter, a species in danger of extinction. They can be seen fishing, playing, or swimming. You will be looking for the Black Cayman, the Hoatzin, and the interesting surrounding flora.

Furthermore, you will visit Lake Otorongo and the observation tower which is 15 meters height which enables you to fully appreciate the landscape of the surrounding primary forest and you are more likely to see the family of otters who reside here. There may be a possiblity to do a short night walk to look for American bullfrogs, horned frogs, tree frogs, and a host of colorful insects.

Day 5: Reserved Zone / Lake Salvador - Boca Manu

You will wake early again to take a walk around the campsite and Lake Salvador. You will be amazed by the gigantic Ceibas, colorful butterflies and curious squirrel, capuchin, and wooly monkeys. After breakfast, you will pack up, board your boat, and head down the Manu River. You will keep your eyes open for peccaries (hogs), caymans, turtles, and birds. You arrive at Boca Manu at dusk. Overnight at the lodge.

Day 6: Boca Manu - Erika Lodge

Today, you cross the Alto Madre de Dios River, against the current, taking in the beautiful scenery of the Amazon jungle, and the huge diversity of bird species.
