We have stayed in the Tambo Blanquillo for two nights during our 8-day Manu trip. It was an amazing experience. Just inside the area of lodges, you could see many birds on the trees. The trails around are interesting for night walks. Macaw Claylick is the best part for us. They have built a very long and stable wooden platform for tourists to observe this fantastic show of Red-Green Macaws and many parrots. We stayed 6 hours there. From the river bank, you need to walk about 20 mins to arrive at the platform and along the path you could see many birds even monkeys as well. We also went up the 50-meter high tower to observe the whole jungle from a high point. We enjoyed it so much and the sunset was shocking. It was a pity that we did not have enough time for a visit of the oxbow lake to discover more animals. The accommodation is good on considering it is so deep in the jungle. We stayed in the big Tambo which is divided into 20 rooms. Each room has the privacy and is kept in good condition. We need to thank the assistant Johans very much, he gave us very warm welcome and helped us a lot to discover and enjoy the wildlife around. Manu is a great place of the Amazon basin, amazing flora and fauna, I hope we could go back one day in the future.
