I’d like to thank you for your interest in our lodge and extend to you a very warm welcome from Manu National Park.
The Tambo Blanquillo Manu lodge was established in the buffer zone of Manu National Park as a private reserve in 1990 since which time we’ve had the pleasure of hosting thousands of visitors to the Manu region of the Peruvian Amazon. Manu is the biggest national park in South America and is unique in Peru as the only region of genuinely pristine rainforest that can be easily visited by tour groups. Thanks to the remoteness of our location Manu is by far the best region of the Peruvian Amazon to experience the jungle’s biodiversity, with countless endemic species including 1,000 species of bird, 200 species of mammal, 120 species of fish and a vast variety of reptiles.
If your interest in visiting the Amazon is to get up close and personal with nature and wildlife, taking a tour of Manu is definitely for you. Our family-owned lodge is ideal for groups, families, solo travelers and especially for those interested in Birding in Manu , with our above average frequency of many species including the Harpy Eagle (Harpia harpyja), Roseate spoonbill (Platalea ajaja) and the Jabiru (Jabiru mycteria) plus some rare jacamars.
Come and visit our lodge and enjoy a Tour of Manu National Park. I promise you memories that will last forever.

CHAPTER THREE: CAMUNGO OXBOW LAKE‘Camungo’ is the local name for the horned screamer: a bizarre looking bird that’s best described as a cross between a unicorn, a vulture and a giant goose! As the lake was named after this bird, I expected to find it in abundance. Ironically, this wasn’t ...View more
